I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time (more than a year)Pros
I noticed so many negative reviews about DXP and felt I needed to speak up. When people are dissatisfied they tend to look for an outlet to complain. On the other hand, if you're satisfied with your job, you aren't logging on to glassdoor to tell the world. So if you're thinking about working at DXP, take the complaints with a grain of salt.
DXP executives have a true personal interest in seeing the company and its employees succeed. They have millions of dollars at stake in company stock (public information) and are working hard to make DXP the top industrial distributor. You don't achieve that with 3,000+ unhappy employees. So they do care about all of us. Some people's issues may stem from someone in middle-management or a supervisor that doesn't know how to manage people. That is with every company though. If you are in that situation, you request a transfer.
Opportunity for advancement does exist. Again, with 3000+ employees, people come and go. Management opportunities open, and if you've worked had and have the education and skills, you can certainly grow with the company.
In response to a particular comment about overtime, DXP operates the same way as every other company, which is required by Federal law. If you are a Non-Exempt (Hourly) employee, you are paid time and a half for hours over 40. If you are an Exempt (Salaried) employee, you receive a fixed salary and aren't eligible for time and a half. You know this when accepting the job offer, so it's no one's fault but your own for not understanding the labor laws.
Lastly, my experience with DXP, from the first phone call with the recruiter up until today has been a wonderful learning opportunity. While I do have a heavy work load, I am learning so much and staying busy which I'll take any day over a slow job that teaches me nothing.Cons
The company has purchased numerous companies over the years and still has the challenge of integrating them into the DXP culture. DXP seems to be highly segmented, with a lack of communication across each business segment.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
