Sonwil has managed to grow exponentially over the past few years, because they have diversified into many different markets, and not pigeonholed themselves in just distribution. They offer amazing benefits, extremely competitive compensation, and job security. This company will give you everything you need to do the job and seems to not spare any expense if employees need something.
Management is understanding and will work with you as long as you communicate with them. They do have high expectations of their staff, but they definitely try to find your best fit within the company.
Not enough space in the warehouses to cultivate additional customer growth

Sonwil has very poor management. The managers are usually nowhere to be found. Dangerous place to work due to not having enough space to work. They cram 3 plus accounts into one building with osha violations left and right. I would not recommend this job to anyone.

Sonwil is a very large company, which I had not known about prior to starting. Like any company that has gone through a very fast growth spurt in recent years, they've had growing pains with adapting to the size of the workforce. I've seen the changes they are making and to some extent, where they'd like to be going forward. It definitely seems like they are going in the right direction!! The culture was not amazing when I started, but has changed for the better since then with management more actively involved in employee training and investing in a more experienced workforce that can provide the guidance and leadership that was much needed.
Opportunity for internal growth, job stability, flexible schedules, decent benefits

Downdraft (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – February 16, 2017
This is a good place to work. I have learned many things and met interesting people. The job is easy but has some challenges which I learned to overcome. I have recently moved from Buffalo, New York to Niagara Falls and the commute is becoming difficult. I am looking to find employment where I now reside.
Warehouse Lead Man (Former Employee) – Lackawanna, NY – August 8, 2016
I started as an temp, not knowing they had the person I was replacing to train me, that is truly a backstabbing feeling. I was the warehouse lead covering 2 shifts, I never had proper training but they didn't care. After I was there for a few months I really started to see why people leave.
Management should actually go to school and learn more than micro managing, customer service, respect and this is just treat their employee's better. If you were a street walker you'd probably not make more money and still have your dignity at the end of the day.
During the interview, I was asked about my past employment, they had me fooled to think they were worth working for.

This is not place to work if you're looking for job security. Very high turnover rate. Management has no direction and very cutthroat. Poor working environment with the fact you're breathing in dust from vacuum cleaners. The company hires mostly immigrants who barely speak English.
