    Pros

    The support from coworkers and managers makes our BSE branch feel more like a family than a place of employment, variety of career paths, great benefits, competitive pay, weekends/holidays off, fixed schedule, very friendly environment, peer to peer accountability, managers trust and support employee decisions/ Looking back to my first couple of months, the amount of knowledge that I've gained since starting at Border States Electric, seemed unimaginable. My manager / supervisor allow me to make changes and/or additions that will allow me to better serve my customers.

    Cons

    My target market is a niche market. Often times my branch doesn't stock the material that my customers need immediately. With that being said, my leadership team supports me 100% when I actively bring new material into stock in hopes to avoid these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep beings awesome.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Border States Electric (Fargo, ND).

    Interview

    Interview was very laid back. More like a one on one conversation. Asked the regular questions. There was a phone interview with HR then an interview with mid management then a 3rd interview with upper management. During the interview they made you feel comfortable and excited about the job.
