    Pros

    Pros: a lot of exposure to different software packages that can be beneficial for future opportunities.

    Cons

    The company is very unstable, debt heavy, and barely, if at all profitable on an operating basis, which leads to an environment of feeling what's next to please the shareholders - more cuts, job losses? Although opinions can change greatly between departments, from my experience, the political environment is very heavy (this may be due to the point above). Even the lowest managers are always looking up with little regard to those lower in the food chain. Frequent management changes/high turnover. Summary: The unstable environment leads to a very stressful atmosphere - who knows where and when the next cut will occur.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your internal customers/employees just as much as you do your external ones.

    Pros

    Great co workers that are passionate about the business

    Cons

    Used to be a great place to work. Since going public focus is on stock and the not the morale of the team. Benefits are sub par yet performance expectations thru the roof.

    Advice to Management

    Please bring passion of the associate to forefront and invest in better benefits

    Pros

    Good pay. Set your own schedule, pre existing customer base. Good benefits. Lots of training from manufacturers and within the company.

    Cons

    A lot of stress since the company went public a couple of years ago. Low morale since the company purged more than 300 employees in July of 2014 and continued dismissal of key employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job fun again. It's hard to focus on your job when you are constantly worrying about when your time is going to come in terms of being let go.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, lots of vacation, sick time, wellness time. Low pressure, easy going environment.

    Cons

    No opportunity to advance. Most senior staff are lifers due to the tons of time off. Any request for improvements are labeled as complaints and whining. Staff is treated with little professional respect. Any employee in the company who has a design direction gets to tell the designers what to do. There is no weight given to the designers ideas or input. One must agree with any and everyone in order to keep people happy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staff, treat them with respect. Most of us have degrees in design and are well qualified to provide profitable sales oriented, informed direction.

    Pros

    Solid product offering, great employees, customer first mentality

    Cons

    computer systems are a little behind the times. Website needs to be stronger. Some divisions have virtually no ecommerce capability. Company doesn't allow new initiatives enough time to bear fruit and as a result lays off capable and competent employees when these initiatives are ended prematurely.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep your employees happy. Update the Ecommerce capabilities of some of your divisions. Don't be so quick to shut down new ventures and shed valuable employees.

    Pros

    Large company that has a steady stream of business. They are flexible with schedules if you are a student. You get to operate power equipment.

    Cons

    It is usually a harsh environment to work in. You could be working in extreme cold or the opposite extreme heat. You will breath dust containing who knows what all day.

    Advice to Management

    Some management do not work together too well. This does not send a good message to employees. I always heard supervisors talking bad of each other.

    Pros

    Easy job. Just need attention to detail. I have worked for three different branches. Facilities, White Cap and Interior Solutions

    Cons

    Management has been for the most part, iffy. White Cap was ok, Interior solutions has been good. However Facilities was horrible. Boss would tell you to hurry up your orders every hour or so, then tell you to slow down for accuracy of picks. Any mispicks would be returned, however, one mispick and you were in bosses office. Many workers dragged their feet. Supervisor of the warehouse would typically pass the blame. Averaged a 12 hour day. Seemed to have little reward. Hence why I bounced around.

    Advice to Management

    Get better managers. You're a billion dollar corporation so protect your employees more and you will have a loyal crew.

    Pros

    Always thinking about how we can be the best for our customers and doing so by supporting and caring about every employee. Best supply company out there!

    Cons

    Work load can be intense for some, but I like it that way so not a con. Expensive healthcare, but not really at the fault of the company either.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and our family culture.
