Warehouse Associate/Forklift Operator/Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GADecember 9, 2018
Wesco overall is an ok company as far as it goes when dealing with its customers. They have a good vacation system for the employees, and work system however I feel the employees should make more.

it's a job
branch employee (Current Employee) –  VirginiaNovember 25, 2018
Work is typical warehouse job. However way, way too many bosses who are desk jockeys telling the employees doing the work, how to do their jobs. Management does not listen to experienced employees. Wesco is self admitted to working understaffed and under paid for the work expected. The ops. manager is not in control of his location, too many people outside of the location direct day to day operations and duties.
Pros
a job
Cons
too many ineffective bosses

Did not enjoy the enviroment
Deli (Former Employee) –  Whitehall, MINovember 5, 2018
I am a little biased as I did not enjoy my time in living in the town and I did not enjoy the clientele or the food that I was preparing. My co-workers were fine.

Financially strong company
Sourcing Analyst (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 3, 2018
My day requires good time management skills as I have several daily job functions and reports to maintain. The most difficult part about this position is trying to balance supplier meetings and making sure that all reporting is completed in a timely manner. The best part of the job is that it is a secure position. Working in the energy market is very demanding and there will always be a need.

The Facts of Wesco
Sr. Buyer (Current Employee) –  Port Washington, NYNovember 1, 2018
There are only four levels buyer, senior buyer, supervisor and manager. You are not promoted until you ask for a promotion your work is never praised. If you show strong work ethic they just give you more work while others in your department get less. They give cost of living raises and then expect you to do ten times more work.

Zero Training, Unattainable Expectations, Cut Throat, Highly Political
Bean Counter (Former Employee) –  Tiny Pebble, AROctober 31, 2018
Office Hours appox. 8:00am until 8:00pm, then work on computer until exhausted, Work from home on weekends sometimes 16 hour days. Work Harded Do More, Never enough, always more, always more. Pittsburgh Ivory Tower. Watch your back, trust no one, belief in exaggerated comments or actions for the CHOSEN few. Human Resources is not and ally they are the executioners of the political system.
I learned this once respected Carlton Bates company has become part of the "enough is never enough" greed of the rich mans game.
Pros
Had an Ice Machine
Cons
Ice Machine was usually broken

Very nice place to work
Senior Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Saint Charles, ILSeptember 25, 2018
This was a very good company to work for as they made sure you were trained in sales, product, and sales goals. A very professional business. The sales manager not only trained you to be successful but helped with customer sales plans, forecasts, and on road sales supported by traveling together for some of my sales calls. Any advice I required was there for me.
Pros
Sales support
Cons
none
