Pros

This company is growing and is looking for young and motivated talent to grow with them. I feel like I am part of a team here and everyone looks to one another like brothers and sisters. PoolCorps MIT program was a stepping stone for me in my career and allowed me to forge my own path.

Cons

Working for PoolCorp isn't always easy but, I love the challenge. This is a blue collar industry where hard work and dedication is rewarded. If it weren't for the MIT program I would probably be working for some company doing useless paperwork and watching the clock. But here, I make decisions everyday that affects my branch and our business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a branch manager I love to promote from within. Find good outgoing and motivated candidates for our MIT program here and send them my way!

    Customers can be a pain, yeah, but that's not unique to PoolCorp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about paying the former MITs a bit more, consider an update to SAP or GUI-based ERP system.

    Pros

    Unique corporate culture, business model, and vision to expand the industry, autonomy, consistent opportunity for growth and advancement, great communication from top to bottom of the hierarchy, and room to shine.

    Cons

    The operations side of the company could have more continuing educational resources and programs to work with at the sales center level somewhat like the sales side does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in the MIT program and finding new ways to make it even better.
