Fast paced heavy lifting lots of hours
Delivery Driver/Warehouse (Former Employee) –  South Burlington, VTJuly 9, 2018
It’s a good but physically demanding type of job. If you maintain a fast and proficient work ethic you will succeed at this position. Need to be physically in shape with a positive outlook.

Great pay. Poor management
Supply (Former Employee) –  Altoona, PAJuly 4, 2018
I actually loved this job. I dealt more with the customers than the sales reps. Managed poorly by someone who wasn’t even promoted to manager but was living the lifestyle of one. If you weren’t hanging out with the manager outside of work or “other activities with the manager” outside of the job than you were treated like an outsider. Benefits were great and pay was good for being in the area lived. They payed off a lot of people for dumb reasons.
Pros

horrible company
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  East Windsor, CTJune 25, 2018
Company lacks transparency with employees and customers. Who knows what this company is really up to other than trying to get over on anyone it can. Frat house environment with favoritism problem with advancing with company.

Professional Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Scranton, PAJune 12, 2018
Meet great people along the way. I am grateful for the opportunity I had. It has opened so many doors. The company itself does not have the same personal philosophy's I uphold to.

Horrible, a nightmare, never ever work here
Driver (Former Employee) –  Newburgh, NYJune 8, 2018
The absolute worst job in the whole entire world. The laziest warehouse workers. Trucks never were loaded. The drivers had to come in and load them then go spend 13 hours on the road. Got home at 8-9pm daily. Management was more useless then nipples on a bull and were such arrogant pieces of garbage . The customers you deliver to will accuse you of stealing so beware. Pay was low for what they expect. I wanted to have a mental breakdown and cry at the end of every day. Avoid working here at all costs.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything.

Wolves who eat their young!
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Southern New JerseyFebruary 17, 2018
You are told to drink the "kool aide" or else! You are lead to believe that you will be taken care of if you do what you are told. Then you find out that certain sales reps who are held in high esteem with management are "gifted" all of the best accounts, with the highest margins! Meanwhile, you work your butt off trying to appease customers while the ownership keeps stealing from you by raising "internal costs". And then you find out that the manufacturer never really raised the costs at all. The ownership STEALS from its sales reps!
Pros
Great healthcare; albeit very expensive
Cons
So much to list, there is not enough space.

Run don’t walk!
Client Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Cranston, RIDecember 28, 2017
You are set up for failure!! Two weeks one on one training but third week tour alone...no support!! Computer system is ancient and when customers call for missing items etc you just say well maybe tomorrow. If you like to be rude to customers and have half assed training go for it! You are also replacing recently laid off employees who have been there 10+ years so there is no moral!
Pros
Employee Discount
Cons
Benefits, mandatory 401k, training, coworkers aren’t very accommodating as they are hiring for laid off replacements.

stressful, chaotic, no structure, terrible
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  CTDecember 14, 2017
The pay is fair if you play the game right. I can't say that it's good pay because they work you into the ground. The benefits are good and that is all they have going for them. Other than that the place is a disaster with absolutely no real structure. It's a hope for the best and cross your fingers type of place. Empty promises to both employees and customers. Low tier management has good intention but no actual ability to make any positive changes. This is a company wide issue and it will never change. If you don't have a family, if you don't care about having a life outside of your moldy office and if you enjoy endless, frustrating chaos that never resolves then this is the gig for you, otherwise save yourself the headache. They don't care about you and they never will.

They treat you like a meat grinder
Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Plattsburgh, NYOctober 26, 2017
I worked as a Route Driver, too many hours, not enough help and expected you to work like a dog. They treat you like you are a meat grinder. The only good thing was the health insurance which you never had time to use because they expected you to work on demand.
Pros
health insurance
Cons
poor management, excessive hours, don't care about family time
