I worked at C&H Distributors full-time (More than a year)
Great people in this company. There was a lot of talent and many outstanding ideas were presented during my time here.
Most of those outstanding ideas were ignored. This company suffered from extremely poor decision-making by its executive and that not only crushed morale but eventually led to this 80+ year old company being bought out by a competitor. The other major flaw is that there doesn't seem to be any semblance of an opportunity for growth here. If you're hired into an entry level position you'll retire in that position.
Advice to Management
Start listening to others. It is not okay to shoot down all new ideas if you aren't suggesting any of your own. Every one in this company lost faith in the management team and towards the end we were all sitting back just watching the ship sink while they did nothing.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at C&H Distributors (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2013.
Phone screen, then 2 in-person with job shadow. They also had me make recorded phone calls to gauge my ability to cold call. Sat with two different people at there desks to get a feel for the role. This was not helpful because they did make calls, just showed things on the computer.
