    I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has brought in new people to help drive change and culture. Company has a great CEO and solid strategy, but a long way to go.

    Cons

    Too many long-term associates who don't want to change. Not enough resources to get work done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making changes throughout the organization. You're on the right path but not there yet.

    IT Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MSC Industrial Direct (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening interview with HR. We discussed the details of my resume and discussed what I was seeking in a new opportunity. The interviewer was very easy to communicate with. I think I was not offered the opportunity for the next interview due to my availability timeline.
