I have been working at Gexpro as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Excellent structure, benefits, and outlook; Great people to work with; Laid-back, easy-going; Plenty of room to advance; Reasonable salary; Technology-driven; A place for everyone

Cons

Cons are only present when one does not apply themselves adequately

Advice to Management

Fully prepare and utilize the benefit of having an intern. Though data input and calls are very useful, experience, job shadowing, meeting other people, outside sales, high-level overviews of what makes up your company would be the most beneficial to an intern. They are going to be there anyways, make them want to choose Gexpro as a career, don't just use them to make coffee... (Idea for Management of Gexpro: Make a Pre-DSLP for Interns)

    I have been working at Gexpro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -job security -good customers -knowledgeable coworkers -opportunity to learn fastener industry

    Cons

    -disorganized, lazy outside sales (often out of the loop due to never being in contact with the office) -overworked, disgruntled coworkers -everybody for themselves mentality -mixed signals from management / lack of direction

    Advice to Management

    Talk to and listen to your subordinates. Require outside sales to meet regularly with inside sales team to align needs of accounts. Customers notice the disconnect between outside and inside sales. We're all playing for the same team here. Reward good performance. Notify employees before the end of the year review if there are ways for them to improve. Communication is a major problem.

    Pros

    Very surportative management that aggressivly persue challenges as a whole; no hesitation to develope relationships and deploy solutions.

    Cons

    Outside sales teams have inherent nontrust issues with any intrusion into their existing relationships. This cardinal flaw creates high level confusion and delay.

    Advice to Management

    Chase the solutions that strenghten coporate relationships by whatever fiscal means needed. Establish trust from the top down with eye on supporting the Outside sales teams with training.
