    Pros

    Company with good values, well recognized and received in the hardware, LBM industry. All expenses paid while traveling territory. Got to work with some fantastic business men and women.

    Cons

    Being gone from home more than I liked. Travel within territory usually required at least nights per week in motels.

    Advice to Management

    Pay could be better, and more competitive with the industry, even though the retirement is very good.

    I worked at Do it Best full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good rate of pay. Coworkers are genuine and like to assist. Company culture can be fun and unique.

    Cons

    Management is not always concerned with stress levels or work level of hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Meetings and educational classes seem to be important however, someone can be promoted because they do a good job...does not mean they will make a good manager. If an hourly person wants to move up or top a different dept. it will not happen if dept. management.doesn't agree. It just won't happen.

    I worked at Do it Best full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, profit sharing and pension (pension I found out not great), bonus but NOT based on work.

    Cons

    Managers are never forthcoming and lie all the time (or change the rules to suit themselves), Hourly people are looked down upon, bonuses are based on how well the supervisors like you (saw time and time again).

    Advice to Management

    QUIT LYING!! Promote from within (like you say you do). Start treating hourly staff as if they matter and are equal (treat them as you would like to be treated). Quit bases bonus on whether you like someone but on how they preformed their job. Keep managers more informed as to how to handle employees.
