    I worked at ProBuild full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Traveled around to different company location. I was able to meet many new people and enjoyed being a part of an great team.

    Cons

    Too top heavy. Corporate had too many people while location were cut to the bone. Created an us vs them mentality from the location employees stand point. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people that pay the bills and keep the company going. Focus on properly staffing the locations and don't worry so much about the layers of AVP, VP's and the O suite. Combine some tasks, improve efficiency and reduce duplication of effort. Then make cutbacks, but at corporate, not the locations that are cut to bone and understaffed already.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at ProBuild.

    Interview

    It was an average interview and they made me an offer. What happened after the offer is what was negative. They have a blanket exclusion if anything is found in your background check. They don't give you the chance to explain and/or dispute the accuracy of the background check. They immediately revoke their offer before you have the chance to dispute their findings.
