    I have been working at Würth full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I think they try to do right by their employees. Standards are high but fair. They try new things. There is evidence of listening to concerns/complaints and doing things to make improvements.

    Cons

    Most of the growth opportunity is at headquarters.

    I worked at Würth full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The only Pro I have is that they guys that work in the Warehouse work their you know what's off.

    Cons

    Management doesn't appreciate the Warehouse Crew. Only sales. Warehouse employees are expected to work 12 to 16 hours a day with no appreciation from anyone.
    HR DEPARTMENTS has way too much control in the everyday workings of the different locations.
    HR complains about the Over Time, yet Management will staff according to demand so all of the work falls on the few people that are there. So they are punished for going the extra mile and getting the work done instead of appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest when you are interviewing someone.
    It doesn't do anyone any good to hire someone under false pretenses. It's a waste of everyone's time.
    Back up your employees. If you want them to work hard for you then you should go to bat for them.

    UNWORTHY, UNETHICAL

    I worked at Würth full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hummm? I don't think that there's anything good about them while the same people run the place.

    Cons

    Where do I start.
    The manager for the warehouse I was working does not know (he/she) from her rear. Neither does (his/her) supervisor. Yet they want you to perform your job by reading minds which (was not part of my job description). You do the work and your supervisor takes the credit, over looks other lazy workers but rides you like a race horse at the Kentucky Derby. Bad company to work for. If you really want to kill your enthusiasm to give it your best, this is the company to do to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retrain your non-executive staff on sensitivity to employees needs, ETHICS, and CONFIDENTIALITY!!!! I don't even know how you guys can stay in business with a worthless bunch of supervisors and their managers.

    I worked at Würth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One positive aspect of working at Service Supply was the group of people I worked with. Most of my colleagues were long term employees that readily shared their knowledge and experience with others.

    Cons

    The cons of Service Supply were low pay (wages were frozen for three years), chronic understaffing (hiring was frozen for three years and many positions remained unfilled when employees left, pushing the workload onto remaining employees), inadequate technology (necessary hardware and software upgrades were consistently slow or incomplete, impacting daily performance and productivity), and a controlling culture that included the attitude that employees shouldn't complain because they were lucky to have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a trusting, encouraging culture, provide the tools and support necessary for success, and reward good performance with appropriate compensation at all levels.

    Former Employee - Territory Sales Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Würth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has some hard rules to follow but from what I have seen is that its basically a free for all in the sales area which suits me perfect, I thinks its a great place to work while looking for another job

    Cons

    I think as a sales rep you are kept pretty busy, some treat it as a part time job, but for me its a transition job at best, you have to do everything yourself, so its like your own business except that the wages don't add up to much, be careful not to spend more then you make and watch out for the wear and tear on your car

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start off with a good base and have commission that's reasonable , I think that people may take the job with pride and not be so quick to leave

    I have been working at Würth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I thought the brand name was great, a lot of customers know your products, and the industry is very interesting, cool cars and motorcycle if you like that kind of stuff

    Cons

    nobody with a plan, they don't get how to sell to bigger auto groups, lack of any type of leadership, but the worst thing is the pay, its pretty bad, that's why nobody sticks around too long, if they do they have another job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start over with this one, because the US side of wurth is and has been a mess, my guess would be to get ride of the current leadership and start over

    I worked at Würth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    the prices are high but most of the products are good, and you will enjoy the customers you meet, it can be fun, but don't do it full time, in other words like everyone else keep looking for another job

    Cons

    good luck making money here, the commission is low , the pay scale once you figure it out will make you leave,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too many people that and a hand in the profits, the pay should go more towards the sales people not the admin side

    Pros

    it has some flex in the daily schedule, but the days do get long, you get to organize your route yourself, so pretty much you should live in the territory

    Cons

    low pay, you pay for everything so, you end up selling 20 to 30 grand a month in sales but nothing to show for it, the comp plan is based on growth, its just bad, upper management is a complete joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more get rid of the dm's and rm's they don't help at all

    Pros

    training,base salarly, auto allowance,product quality,reputation

    Cons

    alot of hours, dictatorial mangement, non-competitive pricing,shady compensation practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be realisitc. we are in the worst economic climate since the great depression and the pay gets lower,prices go up,commisions down,shady pay outs and your sales force attrition is off the charts. why spend ALL the money on training only to "run out" your sales staff one after they other. I have never seen so much professional turn over.
