Life of a CSR at DXP corporate office

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time for more than a year

ProsEasy job, little to know supervision. Bowling night, fishing weekend and if you are a favorite, they are flexible with the hours you work.

ConsLack of performance reviews with or without raise opportunities. Management feels that you should just be happy you get to work there. Bonuses based solely on the group not individual performance leading to slackers and hard workers getting the same pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart acknowledging performances on a regular basis and fix the bonus plan to reflect individual performances as well as the whole group. Focus on the strength of individuals not just who fits in the clique.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Unprofessional

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe best thing about working there was the insurance coverage; that's it.

ConsUnprofessional management (curses a lot & talks about people to employees), slim to no raises, almost all the ones that have been there 5, 10, 15+ years have left, they don't care how long you've been there; to them your just a light bulb that can be easily replaced, no room for advancement. So sad and I bet the "owner" doesn't even know...

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to what your employees are saying; and if they aren't saying anything its because they are too scared. NO manager or upper management should not curse on a daily basis to employees and/or talk down about other employees in front of employees. Unprofessional atmosphere with SO much DRAMA.

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

Ol' Boy Network in Senior Management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible work schedule (because few really care after they've been there awhile)

ConsLow pay; not competitive in market
Poor management (especially senior management)
Company is billion dollar company but acts like a small private owned company
You won't get ahead here, so save your time trying

Advice to Senior ManagementSome senior management don't belong there. Just because someone has been with the organization for over 15 years doesn't make them a good leader. There is one in particular who is so inexperienced in managing marketing groups that he shouldn't be doing it. Get someone else who has experience.

Piled on workloads, no compensation to match

Middle Management (Former Employee)

I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNo micro-management
Wide range of support if you know the right people
Growing company always looking to expand their market

ConsNo incentive to perform at higher level
Absolute joke on evaluation and retention of strong employees
Along with no micro-management, the downside is as long as margins remain strong or grow they don't pay attention to the employees who drove these gains
The employees who show initiative and drive this business and believe in what they are doing are ignored and eventually leave due to much better opportunities where their true value is recognized and compensated for
They will gladly ignore employees feedback and needs as long as margins are met
Work there for years and consistently get strongest feedback from multiple customers who constantly reinforced positive opinions and helped drive/grow business yet DXP refuses to do anything to retain valuable employees especially if you are not at corporate office

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the people in the field generating growth and strong customer feedback
Compensate your employees fairly and provide opportunities for growth
Acknowledge needs of employees from time to time
Provide clear incentives and reward those who show strong leadership and initiative

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

RUN, DON'T WALK! Unprofessional and poor management rules!

Corporate Office (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible work hours. Seems working at what ever schedule you want is ok.

ConsSenior management is very poor and unprofessional. They portray themselves as a big company with lots of opportunty but the fact is they are not professional in their treatment and handling of people. There is a lot of politics inside corporate and a lot of favoritism. Stay away from working at corporate especially if under any senior management.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your organization with experieced senior management. Example, if you want to lead marketing with a senior manager make sure he/she has the right level of experience and no favoritism characterisics. It is ruining your company profile in the market.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
