I worked at MSC Industrial Direct

Pros

good pay, good training, everyone overall respectful, goals set and followed up, new hires are all educated

Cons

management acting like everything is ok during a mass merger when it is not; a no rehire policy; confusing mixed messages when it comes to parent company and other; double standards between work locations; most management is there due to time put in-not qualifications and/or education. MSC needs to also focus on MEtalworking products MORE and less on TOILET PAPER and MRO. Let Grainger sell that crap! Oh, and MAKE ONE CATALOG!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

take some of you OWN advice, learn more about the industry-you cant manage or supervise others without knowing anything about the industry or products. MAKE ONE CATALOG AND EVERYTHING UNIFORM BETWEEN BOTH SIDES OF THE COMPANY!
