    Pros

    They don't necessarily care about qualifications, but if you are friends with management, they will give you a job.

    Cons

    Employees that are not friends with management are viewed as expendable, and they will do anything to make an extra buck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified candidates.

    I worked at ABC Supply full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the many people I worked with were great. I was new to the industry when I started and people would go out of their way to help me. The compensation was ok, certainly not the greatest, but I worked harder for less money.

    Cons

    Long days 7am-5pm and some weekends required. There were a lot of people to answer to, and none seemed to be on the same page. Training took up a lot of time and was expected to be completed on top of quotas. This may just be my opinion, but commission quotas were so far out of reach they seemed impossible to attain. out of 5 years, I think I hit monthly commision goals 3 or 4 times

    Pros

    Strong company with great employee benefits.

    Cons

    They preach some very strong values that sound great up front. However, they don't hold the individual location managers accountable to living by those values. Upper level management will just sit back and watch, as the moral and reputation of a location is completely destroyed, as long as the sales numbers are still with in the range that they consider acceptable.
    Career advancement is a joke, unless you are buddies or family to the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start taking better notice to locations that have such a large spike in turnovers and that majority of their monthly sales are all coming from "New" customers. If all of the "Old" customers that were loyal for so many years now don't care to do business with the location anymore & the employee turnover rate has increased by such a large percentage, then there must be something wrong.

    Pros

    Salary is good but that is iot

    Cons

    Working for 10 years at one location and then they tell you are not going anywhere because you are too old to move to a larger store and make more profit for ABC. 58 years old and where do I go. Guess I will stay put and continue making money for ABC.....REALLY!!!!!!

    Pros

    This is a solid company that isn't going anywhere. You will have work to do each day.

    Cons

    This company is performance bonus driven from the top down. This is good in some ways however it creates an environment where the bonus is the most important thing. Things might not be repaired so that someone can make a couple of bucks on a bonus. District management controls individual stores through the store manager. Many decisions are not something that a local store manager can make. The company tells you often how important you are but doesn't reward you with a solid paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the waste that the bonus system creates. Think about the fuel and manpower wasted to transfer product. Change the waste into improved income for the associates. Please get rid of the stupid race car! Roofers don't watch Indy racing!
