Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Gainesville, TX – February 11, 2018
The manager that hired me was really good and made the workplace enjoyable. He got promoted to the Corporate office and the manager they brought in was not good at all. The store itself and the fellow employees were enjoyable to work with.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Manchaca, TX – January 23, 2018
It was a good experience. I stock, cashier, clean, mix paint, and cut rope. I was able to get an understanding of where the products where and able to help costumers locating the items. I had a hard time figuring out the cashier job because it operated on an older software unlike today. Very hard to get use to it but once down it was easy to use. Good environment and even got to know constant costumers.
Old Equipment, Old Cashier system, lots of paper use
Everyone in management from the Manager to the Yard supervisor are kind friendly folk who care for their fellow Co-workers. The Georgetown McCoy's store is well known in it's community and gets along with it's customers; as it provides vital service for an ever growing community. Working in the yard, You have to be alert and focused to the task at hand and to your surroundings with forklifts and cars (mainly) moving all around you; it can be stressful and demanding at times.Some days the heat(sometimes rain) can be hard to manage as you mostly will be working outdoors. The job can be labor intensive. Having knowledge about carpentry, construction and building materials is very helpful as it is what you will be working with as part of the Yard Crew. You can expect to be working autonomously or as a team with little supervision.
Sunday is church day/day off, Friendly management, Major holidays Day off
Manager (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – November 30, 2017
Once the day starts it is non stop go, go, & go. You can learn a lot but you must be willing to learn and show the interest. Management is good I worked for both good and bad managers. The work place is overall OK you have good days and hectic days. Hardest part of the job is helping customers that don't know what it may be they need or are looking for.
Point of Service Associate (Former Employee) – Richwood, TX – November 28, 2017
You often work many hours at a time. As a cashier you must memorize the majority of the merchandise and understand the language of the material. It takes a while to learn the register but after that the job is easy. You are also responsible for cleaning shelves and organizing merchandise.
hour lunches, you get a credit for purchases, discount included with job
Nothing but good things to say about working at McCoy's Building Supply. A great family owns the corporation and my fellow workers felt more like family than just people I worked alongside. Worked for McCoy's twice, both times in different roles in two separate towns, and both times I loved working there. If I didn't have to relocate the second go around, I would have loved to have stayed on staff. You'll find many whom have 10+ years, which is almost unheard of in a retail type environment.
Yard Crew Member /driver (Current Employee) – Brownsville, TX – October 4, 2017
Where to start. I worked for McCoys for 5 yrs and my first manager was awesome my second one thought he was god in there he had a lot of favoritism and wanted you to be kissing a** i would drive, work the yard , and inside with phone and customer service this manager was just looking out for his people not for the ones that work i was never made full-time because skipped me he made 3 people full-time that had less than a year when i already had 3 or 4 years while i worked my a** off . The bad thing is that corporate thinks they have the best manager in that store little do they know how disrespectful he is with the customer and employees .The company itself is fun and very helpful i would probably work there again but different people
My typical day at McCoy's was enjoyable. I paid the bills, pulled money from registers and balanced them for deposit. I made sure all the accounts were accurate and filed bad checks with the court house. The hardest part of my job was calling customers on bad checks, but the most rewarding part of my job was the lasting relationships I made in the process.
