    I worked at Ferguson Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great career if you like selling plumbing! There are other things to sell as well so make sure you enjoy what you're selling.

    Cons

    Many complaints from employees on unpaid overtime. As a branch manager I worked on average 75+ hours a week minimum to make budget.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who does the work on the front line and work with them, help them. Train them properly and see how hard their job can be. It's about creating trust.

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

    Pros

    Hourly pay rate and insurance was fair for the area, overtime was often required, that was the extent of the pros.

    Cons

    Working environment. I trained on first shift but worked on second shift and quite often would get yelled and screamed at unfairly by a supervisor because I did things exactly the way I was trained - but 'we do things differently on our shift.' The expectations in this regard was unrealistic. Beyond that, the facility is incredibly dirty. Your work day ended when they said it would end - you can not ever tell your family when to expect you to be home or make any plans.

    Pros

    Company is focused on customer service and growing its employees. Some management wants to grow associates to maximize effectiveness. Will work to keep good associates.

    Cons

    Poor branch management and general management could limit potentially great employees. Make sure you have a manager looking for your best interests. Communication is sometimes ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on developing management and don't be afraid to kick bad associates off the bus.

    I worked at Ferguson Enterprises (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training program will teach you a lot about the industry. Good benefits. You'll lose weight working in the warehouse or on the counter!

    Cons

    Long hours 60+ a week. The company expects you to move all over the place just to get promotions. Lazy, constantly changing management. Outside sales reps and branch managers reap the benefits of everyone hard work, and just point fingers and pass the blame. Branches are under staffed. Massive international company, your just a number, or a scapegoat.

    Advice to Management

    Pick up the phone and help your counter/ inside sales team. Hold Salesmen accountable for their mistakes. Make sure your branches are staffed for the work load. Don't expect to retain any real talent with your current business model.
