    I have been working at Allied Wire & Cable full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I guess I was worried after reading the previous reviews before being hired, but I'm happy here. I have been employed for just a little while in the company's PA office and I am pretty satisfied. My co-workers are all very nice, and the office is pretty upbeat and lively.

    This is a job where you have to bust your butt. You can really make a good living with Allied but you need to put the time in. You can't expect to just mail it in at this job or you will drown. Get through the first year or so and you should be well on your way. I guess what I'm saying is that if you have a lot of drive you can really do well here.

    They have occasional company outings that are nice and the employees band together for different activities after hours and at lunch. The dress code is very laid back, and time off is almost always granted when needed. They want you to work hard, but they are very understanding when it comes to family.

    Cons

    Their benefits are kinda expensive, but they have them. Would like to see them offer more vacation time as you advance with the company to motivate you to stay. A lot of the employees say that plays a big factor in retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I am happy at AWC. If anything could be better I'd like to see them offer employees more vacation after a certain number of years with the company.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Allied Wire & Cable in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    fairly straightforward, sent resume, in person interview with two people, then skype with VP of Sales, skills test, then second test (personality Review) discussed compensation plan, and what would be expectrd of me for the job.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    compensation was far below market average, and frankly I was insulted that they thought I would work for them for that amount
