    Not worth the stress

    Inside Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsPossibly some of the coworkers

    ConsSay they are family oriented, but proof of that remains to be seen.
    Management does not know how to develop their staff and set them up for success.
    Management does not know how to effectively train their staff.
    If you do not fit in with them on a personal level, you do not stand a chance.
    Would not recommend to anyone.
    Pay was not worth the stress of dealing with the politics in this location.
    Branch Manager only cared about the profit of the branch and will do anything to receive the larger bonus check.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a closer look at how each branch is run and maybe implement some standardization across all of the branches.
    Set up a training plan for all new associates with realistic expectations.
    Train the branch managers how to effectively develop and motivate their staff in an appropriate manner.
    Realize that your staff and customers are the key to your success and take pride in knowing that their success is also yours. It is not all about the numbers, you need to build your client base and retain your staff and the money will come with that.
    It is unfortunate that a large privately owned company with great values has Branch Managers that cannot properly represent the company values.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Direct Mgmt. needs to take some classes on effectively motivating and managing their team.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosbenefits were good as well as the ability to travel to meet your customers. They do have great moral and a great mission statement and the whole story of the company and the founder is great.

    ConsToo much of a workload with no help given at all, or what little help their might have been, would be quickly taken away. No real direction, only told what has to be done and if your doing good, it was never good enough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees, perhaps have thier back when you know it is warranted. Might want to also take some management courses, because motivation skills are not there. No one wants to have you breathing down their backs, always worried what's going to happen next. Spread out the workload more.

    The rich branch managers get richer and the workers that make it happen get screwed.

    Warehouse (Former Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsGreat group of people in the warehouse.

    ConsOffice people felt they were better then warehouse workers. Drivers allowed to sit around to get their time in each day. Bullied people into giving companies a good ranking in Gallop Best workplace survey.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with workers, and have the office people get their hands dirty once helping in warehouse. Increase wages and eliminate the "walls" between groups. Management also shouldn't let people operate forklifts when they are drunk, very poor for safety!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Inside sales/ warehouse

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat hours and plenty of holidays off, great bonus if your store profits. Stores are run like a small business meaning local management makes all decisions.

    ConsConcerns fall on deaf ears sometimes. Store is run like small business meaning manager makes all decisions good or bad

    Hard work gets no where unless your friends with the boss!!!!

    Inside Sales Associate (Current Employee) Dayton, OH

    ProsStocking, making store look great! Operating a fork lift! Talking and taking care of customers!!!!

    ConsPay is a whole lot lower than other companies for the same position. Layoffs or hours being cut is very common.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a manager and DSM who sees the truth! See who works hard and see who is really lazy!!!!!!! Just because you like an employee or hang out with an employee does not make them a good employee! Oh, and remember your there to work not to have affairs!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
