Pros

Great pay and benefits by Grainger. Leadership is consistant and has experience in the MRO marketplace. They are great communicators and will spend money to train you and improve your skills. They have decent bonus programs and a great profit sharring program as well.

Cons

Cons are consistant with any large organization. A lot od red tape. often difficult to get to the right desision maker because many jobs seem to overlap. If you are a field based emplpyee you may have to work harder to get assistance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to beat the competition by investing in the company. Look deep into the aqusitions that have been made and ensure that they are assimited properly into the organization.

    I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was once a great company going downhill fast. At one time it was career and skill expanding. Opportunities for income were good as long as you had a good work ethic.

    Cons

    Account Managers are required to work all hours to keep up with demands of recording all sales activities, preventing sales activities. Jeff Collier has no idea what he as doing and micromanages each sales person to the point of um-productive status. I can't get out of here fast enough as there is no reward for success or professionalism.
