    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.

    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.

    Pros

    I am going to be completely honest here. I've went to college and well, this is the job I got. I started at the bottom as a warehouse associate and within 2 months I was promoted. Might be a lower percentage in terms of this happening, but it did. I am now a driver for MI. The pay is good, there IS in fact advancement. Anyone who says otherwise probably wouldn't be looked at for said opportunity anyway. Their opinion means nothing.

    The hours are NORMAL. Sometimes you are on call, but rarely do you actually have to do anything. If you have to, you get paid time and a half to do so.

    Time flies. Every day I never realize what time it is and before I know it, it's time to go home.

    There IS OT sometimes. Depending on what needs to be done. It WILL be paid.

    The people I work with happen to be lively and keep the day moving.

    MONTHLY AND ANNUAL BONUSES. If you as a branch hit your sales goals, you'll be rewarded!

    Cons

    The only con is sometimes it is stressful. But what job isn't? As a driver, I am face to face with all the customers. Sometimes the interactions are fine, sometimes not so much. Guess what? I go home and do it again the next day. I don't let it affect me. I guess that is the "con".

    Advice to Management

    I cannot speak for the company as a whole, but at the branch I work for, I'd just like to see a LITTLE more involvement and praise over what we do.
