    I have been working at IDI Distributors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the family environment on the branch level. Our particular branch was very close. Communication was always open and that really contributed to our success. I would go so far as to say that - on a personal level - the staff I was privileged to work with was among the best I've ever met at any of my previous jobs. This company really puts emphasis on cultural fit, so I can see this being consistent at most - if not all - branches.

    Cons

    Sometimes management, particularly when it comes to administration, gets caught up in the fine details. A majority of the time, small issues were being over-corrected and later became bigger issues with trust and growth because there is always the feeling of being watched. There was a huge micromanagement issue at my branch, and the stress of it was ultimately the reason why I left. I continuously felt as though I could do nothing right.

    Advice to Management

    If you feel there is a better approach to what an employee is doing or saying, make a note of this and hold off telling them until a regularly scheduled one-on-one meeting when the timing is more appropriate. When a person is constantly being approached about their performance, it tends to have the opposite effect than what the manager desired. Particularly with the managers that deal with the admin staff, I found that a lot of the discussions and the details discussed were both approached in an aggressive manner, and an unnecessary conversation to have altogether.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IDI Distributors (Chanhassen, MN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Multiple rounds of interviews with varying layers of management. The initial round wasn't too bad, but the second round was very intense and I found some of the questions asked to be inappropriate.
