    Pros

    This was a great way to gain experience in the purchasing field.
    The people I worked with were the nicest and were great to be around.
    A lot is learned.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth at all
    The raises are minimal, it is set, and pretty much know you'll be getting a small bump, has nothing to do with your capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your workers, and pay them what they are worth, you are losing people on a daily basis because of this.


  2. Low pay, low opportunity for advancement

    Pros

    It's a job that pays the bills.
    My coworkers are some of the best workers I have worked with.

    Cons

    Where to begin...training is terrible, better learn quick! Management does not care about you, you can be replaced easily and for a lower salary. Salary is not competitive. Raises is not based on your work like they say. Each group gets a certain amount and it is up to the "window manager" to decide how it gets dispersed in their group. If they like you, you get more...slacker or not. Also, it is a boys club! They say "One Wesco" but what is good for one is not for the next. Certain managers should not be managers. They talk down to you and treat you with no respect.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employee with some respect and not like we are idiots and maybe their wouldn't be such a revolving door.

    Pros

    Independence - boss does not look over your shoulder or micro-manage. Flexible on hours and needs. Good customers

    Cons

    No documented procedures. Need better communication regarding needs from a corporate end. Training is non-existent - better learn quick (and on your own)!!! Regional management is willing to embarrass you in large groups of peers

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a little more employee friendly. Humiliation is not a good thing

    Pros

    there used to be some flexibility regarding work schedule and the medical benefits were good

    Cons

    no real room for advancement, raises are not based on performance but a percentage allotted to the entire department and then dispersed among all employees. The harder you work the more they throw at you with no reward while slackers they just let keep slacking.


  10. Great group of people to work with.

    Pros

    Courteous Staff.
    Quick response when issues are brought to light.
    HR Department is one of the easiest that I have had to deal with.
    Proactive changes to increase availability of inventory, reducing employee frustration.
    Definitely concerned for the "little guy" in the company (like me!)

    Cons

    Sometimes small issues (from the corporate perspective) are pushed aside to deal with bigger issues (again, from the corporate perspective), so some "satellite" locations can run into problems, but new revisions to workflow have improved response times and reduced frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! I have enjoyed working with you so far, and look forward to many more years of service. Thanks!
