    I worked at Anixter Fasteners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great entry level position with opportunity for growth and advancement. Senior Mgmt care about the team and is even reflected in how he calls his group team members and not just employees. Always being inventive in how to make things better and encouraging team members to be apart of it...

    Cons

    Large team, that can at times drive gossip which is never good at place of work. Advancement takes time and can be difficult with the size of competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep at it! Executives need to make sure they keep their Director and middle managers! Not always about numbers, remember the culture

    I worked at Anixter Fasteners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Highly Structured, well defined roles. Endless opportunity to learn and grow. Lots of opportunity to make vertical moves within organization.

    Cons

    Compensation package is not competitive, very high turnover rate for this reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best thing you can do is work to engage employees and find other ways than compensation to show employees that they are valued.

    I have no substancial complaints. The pay isn't super awesome, but it more then suffices for entry level positions.

    Pros

    This company is advancing itself within it's field very quickly. They are global company that may buy one to three companies within the industry to improve there position with the fastener industry each year. There are no limits if you apply yourself with this company advancement seems to follow.

    Respect is important to me and I always get that at this company. This company is a friendly & respctful company & that starts at the top with the presedent all the way down to the warehouse employees. The facility that I work at everyone seems to be much like an extended family.

    Cons

    As with most companies the pay could always be better & more holiday time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I looks as if we are heading in the right direction.
    I think that they are doing a great job.
