    I worked at Motion Industries (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very strong company, reputable and well managed. Very strong player in the MRO market. Highly technical and a great problem solver for customers.

    Cons

    some of the younger managers in some branches are less likely to support the sales people as well as some of the more seasoned managers that have been in the role for a number of years. This is true with the smaller branches.

    Advice to Management

    make sure all branch managers give all the tools necessary to their sales people and not try to limit income by holding on to accounts so not to pay commission in an attempt to increase the managers net profit.

    Pros

    I started pushing a broom for this company 6 years ago and now I'm working with a high profile corporate account. I'm not pretending this is a standard, in fact it's not, but it brings to light the emphasis this company puts on experience, knowledge, and personality. If you got it, reguardless of your degree, you will do well. Every branch is treated as its own business and direction and demand tend to be from the local branch up vs. Corp. down.

    Cons

    Motion's mantra still seems to be throw every new hire into the fire.


  10. Great place to work - 8-5 Mon-Fri with only the occasional after hours call out

    Pros

    You get weekends and the typical holidays off, there are over 500 locations in the US and a few in Canada if relocation is desirable, the benefits are good, flexible with schedules within reason.

    Cons

    It is a highly male driven industry and company which allows for sexual harassment issues however each location is different. Not much training provided if it's your first time in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more performance management evaluations in order to keep turnover down, set employees for success by providing them with useful training. Make sure management does not overstep boundaries and push forward with annual sexual harassment trainings.
