    I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Clear vision for the future, strong culture, responding to changes in environment.

    Cons

    Results still not where they should be, company still not hitting its targets.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the noise, stay focused on the plan, ignore the detractors and just execute.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at MSC Industrial Direct (Fernley, NV).

    Interview

    After the call back it took roughly two months for the interview to take place. HR was present with reasonable questions and inquries. During the interview I was required to take a math test that's subject was number patterns. Also, I was asked to demonstrate proper lifting techniques.
