    I have been working at Acklands-Grainger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Great company to work for generally speaking. Lots of opportunity to develop through company intranet resources.

    Cons

    Work / Life balance could be better. With long tenured employees opportunity for advancement is very minimal unless willing to relocate, and even then the opportunities are very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with policy administration, and better support mid-level management in the daily operations. Hold all accountable to the same expectations. Too much good ole boy networking...should be a thing of the past.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Acklands-Grainger (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I went to the campus career fair, and met with the hiring manager and have a 1 to 1 interview with the manager. The hiring manager was really nice and give a brief explanation of what the company does.
