    Pros

    Profit sharing, good pay Vs. the competition.

    Cons

    They are finding ways to weed out the more tenured employees so that they can hire fresh out of college lesser paid employees and show more profitability to their share holders. More focus on bringing in products from overseas rather than supporting products made in the U.S. made by our own customers. Major cut backs in the branch staff resulting in longer lines for customers at the counters. Hiring new people at lower wages that do not have industry knowledge. Extremely unreasonable sales goals 25%-35% over PY) for Sales team members during a major recession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many operations and analytical people and not enough hands-on customer service people. It used to not be this way. Grainger needs to get back to hiring people experienced in the MRO and industrial supplies industry.
