    Pros

    Good experience/ resume filler. Great stepping stone to enter the Grainger parent company.

    Cons

    Upper Management "Director of Sustainability" runs company with iron fist and is single handedly driving company into the ground. Does not know how to run this type if business but is not open to improvement suggestions. Retribution will follow! High attrition rate and extremely low moral.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be relieved of his position by parent company to allow repairs to company that will generate a profit. Was a great company once and could be again!

    Pros

    Profit sharing is the only perk , and for several part time employees isn't even worth it . More beneficial to full time tenured employees .

    Cons

    No room for lateral growth, since the company has become a corporation I see unfair merit increases, and budget cuts to the peons who bring in the bulk of business, benefits only reflect on the corporate managers BIG BOSSES , hiring temp phone reps before offering more hours to the part time tenured employees who actually know there job, and doing things for show on the branch and corporate level ie recognitions when higher up reps come into the office , congratulating and acknowledging workers only when your boss is there to impress....things like this are way too common . Graingers way of business is trial and error....they're business plans suck and forecasting of business volume is never accurate . They need to do better

    Advice to Management

    Create room for growth, there's discrimination, several a employees are over worked and under paid ,
