Customer Service (Current Employee) –  USAFebruary 18, 2019
A typical day is sorting daily orders for customers to pick up, entering orders, speaking with customers & salespeople, reviewing open orders, daily cash box. I have learned a lot about the products we sell and the processes within our computer system. The hardest part of my job would be keeping up with all the requirements of the job and the best part is working for a company that allows you to do your job to the best of your ability and to make decisions, being able to opening ask questions to help do your job better.

Happy to be a part of Nichols!
Management (Current Employee) –  Norton ShoresFebruary 18, 2019
Nichols is a great place to work. The company continues to grow via acquisition and organic growth. Nichols is a fast paced work environment that continues to encourage its associates to grow as individuals and looks for ways for continuous improvement (individual and company).

Good company and great owner.
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Norton ShoresFebruary 18, 2019
Good company and great owner. Very community oriented company with opportunities to help out.

Runs lean in all Departments except Sales, so days are fast paced and fly by because you are always busy. Great group of people to work with.

Driver (Current Employee) –  Norton ShoresFebruary 18, 2019
A good company to work for but 2nd shift employees are often "forgotten" as part of the work force. Not sure exactly how this could be changed but more interaction between daytime and night time employees would be nice.

Nichols sets the bar for companies who do what they do. They were once my customer and now I work here. Out of all of the distributors I have had as customers in my 17 years working for a manufacture, Nichols is top notch. They are a great family company with forward thinking leadership in an industry that is very fun to work in.

Stable Family oriented company
Buyer (Current Employee) –  Norton ShoresFebruary 18, 2019
Very stable & family oriented company w/ good benefits. I love the emphasis on the 4 squares and how community driven the company is. Nice On-boarding & training support.

In need of more resources to evenly spread duties to allow for employees to be subject matter experts.
System/technology advancements & more realistic/attainable goals in line with current and projected growth are needed. With more coaching vs. micromanaging, a more flexible work policy, and offering opportunities for growth I believe Nichols would attract and keep top talent.

Why haven't you applied yet?!?

A company that prides itself on their four squares. "1. Work, 2. Family, 3. Health, 4. Giving Back to your Community". Nichols IS that completely.

The culture? One word. Family. The company and the associates actually DO care about you, and seeing you grow. A company is only as good as its associates. You feel instantly like part of the family from your interview on.

The company gives generously to the community - each quarter they have 'service' type projects, and their "Casual Friday" fund is donated to an organization that an associate has suggested.

The company gives generously to their associates - quarter bonus opportunities, anniversary opportunities, professional and personal development, and profit sharing.

A company who prides itself on longevity of its hires. You often hear "Congratulations on your 15th, 20th, 35th.... anniversary with the company." Not to mention, "Happy Retirement. Thank you for 40 years!!"

Proud to be a Nichols associate!

NIchols cares about their employees, and does provide adequate benefits for the employee and their families.
There is a extremely large turnover rate, and it continues to rise. Potential employees should be made aware of the lack of flexibility, and hierarchy that exists within the organization.
The President of Nichols is a wonderful man, and is extremely giving, caring, and honest.

It is nice company to work for if you are looking to stay in the same job long term as Nichols is a very lean organization with not much room for advancement or change.

Nichols truly believes you should have a good work-life balance. They practice this through the visual of the 4-squares: Career, Health, Community and Home.

Old School
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Norton ShoresFebruary 18, 2019
Management is very old school and afraid of change, meaning there is no flexibility or work life balance and that makes growth very hard to accomplish.

Nichols is an efficiently run company, providing the opportunity for team members to be involved in many facets of the business. Relationships are key within the Nichols culture, internally and externally. Benefits and compensation are competitive in the market.

Great Place to Work
Accounts Receivable Specialist (Current Employee) –  Norton ShoresFebruary 18, 2019
Nichols is a great place to work. Everyone here is friendly and caring - from your coworkers at your level to the CEO. Nichols doesn't treat you like you're just another employee here to make them money - they truly care about you as a person. They take the time to train you and make sure you know what you're doing. I like that they offer performance based bonuses - it's just another way they say thank you for doing your job and working hard.

I have a consistent workflow that keeps my days busy and helps make them fly by, but a small portion of that is busy work that gets thrown in there by management. The people here are fun to work with and smart, but get serious about their work and get things done too. It is a good place to work, and its a good place for challenging yourself, but there are a few things that could change about the culture. There is a bit of micromanaging here from management that causes a sense of distrust from management to their employees and a slight lack of flexibility for salaried workers. Also, upper management is good at pushing employees to do more and be better at their jobs, but at the same time, don't really do a lot to highlight or give recognition to employee achievements which can burn people out.

The middle management team does not seem to want to make any changes to make the working environment better. The work/life balance does not exist. It is just work. There is little to no positive motivation from middle management to work harder or be more productive. Only threat of losing your job. The CEO seems to have a very good idea of what he wants his company to be but his management team does not seem to share the same vision.

We are fast paced - sometimes too much work with too few people to accomplish it - this makes day to day work stressful at times. Sometimes this means that there isn't time for project work - but just working through the day to day issues which can be frustrating.
