    I have been working at Petrey Wholesale full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Petrey is a laid back company. I manage at one of the stores, not the warehouse, however. The store manager and higer ups give you a lot of freedom and don't force a lot of regulation on you. It is a very comfortable working environment. I enjoy having a great relationship with those under me and interacting with them.

    Cons

    Being laid back comes at the loss of structure. If the management isn't careful, favoritism can appear to be the norm because of how easy it is to just overlook writing a person up. Then when you are the one to have to do it, you look like the bad guy. The pay is not great, but I am a college student so I can survive it for now.

    Advice to Management

    Stay easy going, but be more structured in the way that you deal with employees and hold all of them to the same standard. Don't be afraid to let someone go if they need to be gone.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Petrey Wholesale in September 2014.

    Interview

    Store manager called me and we went over my work history. He was impressed I had management experience so the job was mine to lose basically. To be management you must pass the background check through the corporate office, which is the longest part of the process. I interviewed within a day or two of introducing myself to the manager.

    Negotiation

    Being a college student, I didn't have much negotiating to do. I needed the job and was willing to work for just about whatever they would pay me. They did meet my minimum asking pay rate however.
