I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

good benefits, salary ok , profit sharing

Cons

Supervisors are in only for what they can get for themselves, they don't care about anyone else. They tend to favor those who had been there longer. New ideas are only heard if it's the people they like. Too much favoritism. Zero promotion. I don't recommend this company unless you are looking for another paycheck. ah, there is no flexibility for life/work either.

Advice to Management

Too many layers of managment are useless and give zero visibility to the valuable people that does the work. Then you wonder why ratings are low at this location. Employees have low morale due to zero advancement

    I have been working at W.W. Grainger as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, cafeteria. People with kids can come in late/leave early.

    Cons

    Management does not mentor nor support team members. It's all for one and one for all. Disorganized work flow, little teamwork and too many hands in the pot.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing management needs a complete overhaul. The lack of a line of sight to this grave issue is the reason why I give the CEO a poor rating.
