    I have been working at Graybar Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management is willing to listen to new ways to drive business and build relationships with customers. Team work attitude is nice to see.

    Cons

    As many have noted before, salary may not be equal to similar employers, but the benefits will more than make up for it if you stick with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to new employees with fresh ideas.

    I worked at Graybar Electric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good place to work for. Fair pay, good benefits and opportunities. Management recognizes hard work and successes. Quality products to sell, and good relations with vendors.

    Cons

    Don't be the low man on the seniority list. No matter how good you are or the rating you get on your review once you are laid off there is never a chance for a return. Company policy is they will never rehire an ex-employee. No matter the reason for the lay off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you lay off a good employee because of a slow down, look to that employee as a rehire when openings arise. Why train a new employee when you have someone that could step in and start day being productive one???
