Inside Sales / Outside Sales (Former Employee) – San Leandro, CA – September 18, 2018
The owner is great, very reasonable and kind person, genuinely cares about his employees. The organization as a whole is the best in the industry, training is always available, targets are reasonable, and many branches seem to be extremely happy. In my experience managers are not disciplined on being unprofessional but are slapped on the wrist and continue to be A-holes, they ignore the hierarchy and act with impunity. They would rather prove a point at the cost of a customer not getting service or product...unprofessional.
The local branch that I was at has some serious problems. The sense of teamwork is absent and the attitudes are very nasty. Some of the hardest people to work with. The local team couldn't seem to unite behind a leader, there was no vision for the future or sense of accomplishment given to the team. I suggested to upper management a book be read by managers called the no A-hole rule but most likely this will fall by the wayside.
I gave a two week notice and resigned but i never got an exit interview so i assume the manager was dishonest and said i was fired also i was told to leave immediately and was watched like i was a criminal, i wasn't allowed to email HR or use the computer but told to leave... unprofessional.
So in summary if you get with this company it can be a great blessing, but there are some bad apples that can ruin it. if you end up at a location like that, don't stay and think you can change things just pack up and go somewhere you are appreciated.
Customers are good friends
Could be stuck with incompetent bosses at the local level

The company as a whole is a very good and stable place to work. Benefits are very good. Superior training. Good product offering Good stock for customer needs Typical day is answering incoming phone calls, taking care of walk in customers. Reaching out via phone email to customers for orders and quotes.
everyone is so friendly and supportive of each other's work. the company succeeds consistently and has a great business model. I would recommend anyone for a job a Piedmont. They have handfuls of people who have been there 20+ years, and that is a sign of a good organization!

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 17, 2017
A typical day at work was very enjoyable as long as you're okay with being on your feet and moving most of the day. Orders would come in and products would be manufactured then shipped and processed and that process would repeat throughout the day. Other tasks such as maintaining a clean work environment, etc etc. Overall the job itself was good for financial stability and regular hours.
Free lunch somedays, great co-workers, wonderful management
A growing company that was very busy. I had the opportunity to advance in the company and learned management skills and well as improving time management skills. I was very successful at this company but found that my passion was in accounting rather than supervision. The people were great and we did have fun times around the holidays.
Free Lunches when we had a good month in profit.
67 hours/week was to long, did not have enough time with family.

This is a great plastic manufacturing company with good benefits and business is good. The people are great. I loved my job but the hours I put in (60 hours/week) was to much for me. I did enjoy the monthly luncheons they provided.
