Pros

MSC has a wide variety of products and solutions to offer.

Cons

Management is VERY negative and seems to believe that all sales territories are the same and should, therefore, be judged the same. Non-metalworking experience is undervalued. MSC will keep associates that have a metalworking background at all costs (no matter what the violation is). Sales growth is expected to be at 30% or greater each year despite the economical situation. Upper management does not fail to give themselves annual raises. Those of us lower on the food chain are told that the poor economy prevents us from being given raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You might want to try motivating your "associates" through positive means instead of negativity and degradation. Embrace the differences your "associates" bring and how they enhance the customer experience.

    Human Resources is supposed to be the keeper of the "culture" yet, at the highest levels, are the biggest violators of the "culture".
