    Pros

    Possibly some of the coworkers

    Cons

    Say 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take 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.

    I worked at ABC Supply full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    benefits 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.

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.

    I worked at ABC Supply full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great group of people in the warehouse.

    Cons

    Office 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 ManagementAdvice

    Be 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!!!!
