I have been working at McMaster-Carr full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
Working in an environment that requires close attention to detail and continuous improvement makes you a better employee that strives for quality work. Ability to work in different areas and learn completely new roles of the business. Being a part of a company that has a long tradition of incredible customer service and is well-liked and respected by the overwhelming majority of customers. Generous profit sharing bonuses and retirement savings that you will not find at many other companies. Full tuition reimbursement- for any subject/degree, without any expectation of you staying at the company once your degree is complete. Respect for a work/life balance. You have set hours and you leave work at work.
Some of the roles can require repetitive tasks. There are young managers/supervisors that may not have the best supervisory/people skills. Not a transparent culture, it is tough to know where you stand if you are doing well.
Advice to Management
The relaxed dress code change was a start, now to tackle the young management issue. Continue to look at current generalists for supervisory roles and I think you'll be headed in the right direction.

I had to send an email with my resume. Then they flew me out. There I had several rounds of interviews. Some 1on1 and some panel. Lunch with potential team members. More interviews in the afternoon. It was very standard, nothing unexpected. They asked questions off my resume and other questions on personal hobbies and interests.
