    I have been working at Waxie Sanitary Supply full-time (Less than a year)


    Waxie is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. They treat you like family and are great at promoting from within. Employees are well taken care of and there is plenty of help and guidance in whatever field you work in.


    Not really any aside from a few times there is not enough staff to handle issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and thank you for listening to your employees point of view.
