    I have been working at ABC Supply Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay decent when working ...good health benifits... Sorry to say that's it, nothing else positive about my specific location... 20 word miniumum for pros not needed.

    Cons

    Management and HR are all about the company, could work a 14 hour day and have to be back 10 hours later the next day... They will ignore truck issues at times and overload trucks to pop on scales if your not smart... Disrespectful talking down to employees and a complete disregard for personal problems, taking a day off for a funeral is considered not important enough... And the dispatcher will push you to come in regardless.

    Understaffed warehouse with ignorant people who instigate fights yet you are required to help in warehouse and operate forklifts when loads are slow... They bleed you dry, being good at your job gets you more on your plate and the lazy people get rewarded

    This has been my experience at the Alsip Il location... I have heard other locations are much better and it all depends on management.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the dispatcher, I don't know how they can allow these types of people to be in management postions, falsifying log books and time clock records to go around D.O.T laws... Illeagaly Overloading trucks and refusing to listen to truck problems

    I filled a complaint with OSHA because of these legal issues were reported to HR they attempted to fire me by writing me up 3 times in 7 days ... I filed a complaint to OSHA under the Whistle Blowers Protection Act, know your rights and protect yourself

    I have been working at ABC Supply Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid management on many of the branches, strongest in the market, lots of training and opportunity to grow. I did not have a lot of experience in the roofing and construction industry when I went to work there. Credit Department is easy to work with.

    Cons

    The commission scale could be a bit better, and it wouldn't hurt to give a better base if we can't raise commission.

    Advice to Management

    Outside sales compensation needs to be better to keep good sales people.
