Good people working here other than the senior leadership.
The company went through some very tough times during 2011 - 2014. The German family that owned IMC supported the business through this period, and in early 2012, brought in a new leader as President and COO. Things really started getting better; sales increased, the employees felt that the President really cared about the business and them, but then for some reason in 2013, they hired Mr. Mosunic. Suddenly, the company turned negative, the tone from him was terribly negative and the business started suffering again. So much so that they had to sell the business. Now, the business is really struggling, Mr. Mosunic seems lost about what to do and the senior team simply does not care about the employees at all! The President that turned the company around left as soon as the company was sold to AZ; He must have been so frustrated with what Mr. Mosunic did to the business that he left. Now IMC is nothing like it used to be, A bunch of new locations, but no sales increase and not making money. From the sales side (where I work), we just do not seem to have the parts our customers need and it is getting worse not better. The leadership is in complete denial that anything is going wrong and they only scream at us and tell us to "sell what we have and stop complaining"...I do not know how much longer I can take this or how much longer the senior team will keep denying that they are the problem.
Advice to Management
Listen to your customers, listen to your employees, be humble and accept help from the people that work for IMC and engage the employees to help you fix this great company. Stop misleading everyone and accept the facts in front of you...get help from someone, otherwise, IMC will certainly just become AZ. Stop making us wear AZ uniforms...we are a wholesale commercial business model, not a retailer! Have courage enough to stand for what is right for IMC rather than just nodding your head toward Memphis and jumping to their every silly request. Keep IMC's identity alive! Please, please, please do not kill this company! I have too many years invested here. You guys just do not understand our business model! Sad to watch this downward spiral!
