    I worked at Ferguson Enterprises full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ferguson was a great place to learn the wholesale distribution business.... from starting in the warehouse and learning how to receive and ship product, to learning what the products looked like.. to counter sales working with a knowledgeable associate and learning what the product are used for. Then into your chosen field within inside sales- be it commercial/plumbing/industrial/residential/HVAC etc. Then throughout your career the opportunities for personal and professional growth are tremendous.

    Cons

    The negatives are a lot of time away from family to get ahead... In order to advance (promotion wise) you need to be flexible and move around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it fun for your associates-- make sure that you make you associates feel that their quality of work is what is important not just the quantity that is used to determine productivity

    Work with great people, and the company is always striving to give you the best training possible and help you reach the type of position that appeals to you most.

    Cons

    Most jobs require relocation to many different states, can be a burden for some associates who have families.

    I have been working at Ferguson Enterprises full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ferguson is a tremendous company to work for. Associates are treated like family (often referred to internally as the Ferguson family), well compensated and offered a plethora of career development opportunities. Furthermore, Ferguson takes care of the communities in and around its markets. I am consistently overwhelmed/amazed that one company could recruit 19,000 like-minded individuals -- Ferguson associates are good people; they work hard and care for their communities. I truly love coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    I have worked for Ferguson for nearly two years and have yet to encounter a "turn-off". Sure there are challenges (all companies have them), for instance, I would like to be able to volunteer in the community on company time (a lot of companies allot employees like eight hours or so a year). However, I thoroughly enjoy my job, the company and the associates I work with!

    Pros

    I think of Ferguson as family. I have been given the opportunity to make good money, make many great friendships, and think for myself. I am constantly learning new things about my industry, and I never feel bored. If you are self motivated and are not looking to be spoon fed, it's a good place to be. I also really like my management team.

    Cons

    There are times where this job can be very overwhelming but you get through it. Customers can not grasp the amount of work that we actually do, so that can put a lot of pressure on us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ferguson has some of the best employees, keep up the good work.
