    I worked at McNichols Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People working together as team. Their health benefits were excellent. Everyone has a chance to advance within their department or others. Everyone was willing to make sure the job got down. For example, they would stay late or come in early to complete the necessary project. Overall, it was a great place to work. I have great memories.

    Cons

    At the time I was employed with McNichols Company, I did not have an unpleasant experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep in the loop on the base level of the teams

    I worked at McNichols Company

    Pros

    Ok benefits, decent healthcare, very generous paid time off, employees care about one another. Warehouse safety is critically emphasized on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Haven't seen a raise since 2008. The company demanded employees give 5 percent of our salary in 2009 and haven't gotten that back either. The Greed here is evident. Employees quit here often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give back to the employees who keep Your business going. I have a feeling the motive is to get everybody still employed there to quit so new cheaper employees can do the same work. Since there is little room for promotion or even a cost of living pay increase employees get discouraged after a while. The company would probably even do better if employees felt the respect they deserve.

    McNichols is a great family company that holds to their core values and focus on improvement.

    I worked at McNichols Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with and wonderful sales training courses. The emphasis on education and training program are wonderful to ease you into the role.

    Cons

    There is not a whole lot of room for growth within the company and the operating system to enter orders was arduous and ancient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to automate and cut down the order entry system to allow more time for selling.

    I worked at McNichols Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    McNichols values their employees. Management would like to hear your ideas and opinions. They want you to grow in product knowledge and confidence and actively seek out ways to help their employees do better in their jobs. Training is ongoing and participation and hard work ensures your success. You are given a chance to shine and there is chance for advancement.

    Cons

    I don't think there are any true 'cons' of working for this company. Very upbeat environment, negativity is just not fostered here! Perhaps if you do not enjoy a fast pace environment then that could be considered a 'con' - but if you like that, then you will love it!

    I worked at McNichols Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, job stys at work and you don't really 'bring it home' good training program - especially for entery level people wanting to expore sales as a potential career and struggling to find work in this job market.

    Cons

    Weird envrionment that is strongly rooted in Chrisianity and over the top (inappropriate) for 2013. Clear preference for men in management positions, end of story. Zero opportunity for woment to advance in any meaningful way at the branch and corporate level. Metals is a male dominated industry to begin with, but business is unabashedly secular. IE, a Christian version of Sharia Law.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so obtuse and leave the Bible verses off your invoices. For goodness sake, that is just beyond the pale!

    I worked at McNichols Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I am no longer employed there.

    Cons

    Was a great company to work for until the kids took it over and let V.P.'s and managers who don't have a clue make important business decisions. Greed has taken over with no raises for some (unless you are really liked) and a bonus structure that dried up like an oasis in the desert.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to treating people with the Christian values you claim to have and stop listening to stupid people in upper management.
