I have been working at Crescent Electric Supply full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are countless training opportunities at Crescent. Whether you want to learn more about the electrical industry or you're looking to build personal skills, there are webinars, classes, books, and conferences to help you accomplish your training goals.

Crescent likes to hire from within. Most employees work their way up the ladder.

Crescent encourages internal and external networking. Employees and managers make frequent branch visits and attend Crescent conferences. This promotes a sense of community within the company. I know many Crescent employees across the country and I feel comfortable going to them for answers. In addition to internal networking, many branches host open houses, promotional events, and BBQ's for our customers and local business partners. These events are fun ways to get to know people in our local community.

I am able to comfortably balance work and home. Tasks are distributed evenly throughout the branch so no one is too overwhelmed.

Cons

Crescent's benefits package is adequate, but there is room for improvement.

Work hours are somewhat flexible, but there has to be coverage. I would like a bit more freedom when it comes to my work schedule.

    I have been working at Crescent Electric Supply full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company will invest in training. good coworkers. If you work hard there is a good opportunity for advancement. They will allow you to relocate.

    Cons

    District manager treats some people in sales jobs better than the people in non sales jobs(warehouse). Schedules training during work hours so those not in the training have to do twice as much work. Not showing loyalty to the people that have been there. Treat people just hired better than the people that have been there for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone as equals. The people in the warehouse are the backbone of the company.

    I have been working at Crescent Electric Supply full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, work-life balance, benefits such as medical and vacation time. My direct supervisor is great with allowing time off and helping me grow individually.

    Cons

    Training is hard to come by unless your in a management trainee program. 2 weeks vacation until year 7 then it becomes 3.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer training to employees not just interested in upper management. Maybe offer additional incentives such as allowing more paid time off after a 5 year mark.
