    Pros

    Management has a kind of hands off approach and let's you focus on your tasks and assignments. Managers will offer guidance and assistance as needed which is nice when you need the support, they aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. Access to online company resources for expanding industry knowledge and staying up to date with industry trends. Great training program for recent college graduates.

    Cons

    - Like most companies, there are always some managers that are threatened by ambitious employees. If you are constantly looking for new challenges, problems to fix, or inefficiencies to eliminate then you will have to deal with lots of negative criticisms and resistance from those lazy managers. - There also seems to be a huge lack of communication between departments, this results in small problems become large ones and lots of wasted labor hours. - Management doesn't seem to care for improving small problems or realize that pennies lost can add up to significant losses. - Limited career advancement opportunities. - Due to low performance standards you are easily replaceable, don't expect to be valued at what you're worth (regardless of experience, education, or contribution to the company).

    Advice to Management

    Increasing sales are always important but so is saving dollars in the value/supply chain. These savings can have massive impacts on the bottom line and suggested improvements for warehouse and transportation operations should not be shrugged off. I also suggest having branch managers hold (at least weekly) meeting with their staff and with department reps to share information and give performance updates. This will also allow for people to work together to generate reasonable and effective solutions for existing problems. Increasing communication increases teamwork which leads to solutions.

    Pros

    Management training program (MIT) allowed for a smooth transition into a full time management posititon. The potential to learn multiple facets of the company, and how to manage personel, inventory, logistics, and finances. Jobs are available across the country and even internationally. The benefits are above par, with a growing welness program.

    Cons

    Summer seasonal work hours are a little long.
