    I have been working at McMaster-Carr full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are unbelievably generous
    work/life balance
    Lack of stress for non-management
    40 hours a week, OT and holidays are strictly volunteer only

    Cons

    If you're not hired as a supervisor or manager you probably never will be
    Supervisors and managers switch departments frequently for their own development so there is a lot of leadership turnover
    It's not very fulfilling work, but it lets you have plenty of time to do what you love outside of work.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Its a five hour interview. No seriously, you're there all day. Different layers of management shuffle in and out asking the same questions. Trust me, you dont want to work there. Trust your gut. Trust these awful reviews.
