    I have been working at W.B. Mason

    Pros

    Coworkers. Insurance, freedom, discounts, trucks

    Cons

    Absolutely no training! Office and warehouse completely separate. Managers don't now any of the day to day operations. No consequences for bad actions unless they want to get rid of you. Then they find a lame excuse. The office and sales reps, managers are run it like a fraternity. Drinking in the office like a party.Could go on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to run a business!!! You have humans working for you not robots. Learn the operations. Starting from warehouse on up. Its sad that everyone knows more then you. I don't see this company lasting another 10 years.

    Interview Details

    Easy but very unorganized. They make you wait an hour and a half past the given interview time just because they want you to sweat. Then they wil make you interview over two times for the same position, giving out your resume multiple times because they continuously forget who you are. They give false information.

    Reasons for Declining

    Extremely unorganized environment
