Current Employee - Service Center Manager in Birmingham, AL

I have been working at Baker Distributing full-time (more than an year)

Pros

It is employment is about the only redeeming value this company has for it's employees

Cons

Upper management gets brilliant ideas and pushes changes and then after a month or two looses interest for another huge brilliant idea from people so far out of touch with actual field level sales it is tragic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire every single person in corporate and get people in these positions who have actual field level sales experience. Plus the old saying it takes money to make money. When constricting branches to save by running them so lean if one person calls in sick you only have one person at the branch is ridiculous.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Easy computer system to learn and very good product line offering. Great customer retention also with great marketing backup. And great overall communication.

    Cons

    Central ordering through a distribution center by people who have no idea what your local stock levels should be. Limit of $250 for branch managers to buy goods without going through a buyer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow branch managers more of a say in what their branch stocks and the levels of inventory. Also split up the larger zones into smaller ones.
