    Pros

    I have learned a lot working at Ferguson. I was given a lot of responsibility right up front considering I was a temp. I received tremendous praise on jobs I handled.

    Cons

    Promises were made and not kept. Definitely knew I was an outsider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your temporary employees better. Make sure they feel important and included

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was hired as a temp worker. I would have preferred to have been a permanent worker.

    Pros

    Large company with opportunities to grow and move around
    Performance based raises
    Benefits

    Cons

    No decision making - all handled by HQ
    Lots of micromanaging from above. This company is a well oiled machine that requires lots of reports and compliance. "Paralysis by Analysis"
    Starting to move to retail and requiring employees to work on Saturdays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay connected to lower level employees for better retention.

    I worked at Ferguson Enterprises full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The branch that I worked for is located at a warehouse area. I started as a temp and after three months, I was hired full time. Co-workers and management were really nice to work with. We all got along. As a receptionist, I had no previous experienced, however, I learned so much there and the person that trained me was very patient and kind. If you want to advance in the company, there are good opportunities for that. Work environment is really nice inside the Company.

    Cons

    My starting pay was pretty decent, however the raises were too low. Since the company is located in a warehouse area, you will need to own a car because the public transportation is not accessible to the company.
