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

    Pros

    Joining ABC Supply was the best decision of my career. I am provided with professional development opportunities and variety in my work. I work with great people who want to work together to advance our company. The company's mission and purpose resonates with me. We live by our core values, we don't just hang them on the wall. Our founder, Ken Hendricks, believed that 'Everybody has within themselves the ability to do great things" and that belief is still echoed at ABC Supply. Advancement opportunities are there for those willing to work for them. I can't see myself working anywhere else.

    Cons

    I have been with this company for over two years now and I've yet to encounter a con. There are challenges, like all workplaces. ABC Supply is always growing. We've added more than 300 locations since I started. With that comes some growing pains, but that's a great problem to have.

    Pros

    Great company to work from the bottom and move your way up. Started out as an outside sales person and am now managing a branch. The thought process always begins at the branch level from your newest employee to the most tenured. It is structured to the point of leaving most of the decisions being made at the branch level with some oversight from above. Plenty of opportunities to grow at your own pace and what you feel comfortable with your decisions. If you make a mistake, you get to own it and learn from it as well. The training provided for outside sales and branch managers is the best that I have ever experienced. There is definitely a lot of thought put in every level of training to ensure you are receiving the best information that is related to your task at hand.

    Cons

    Lots of hours you put in, but the reward at the end can be....rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to leave the decision making process at the branch levels. This is were the rubber meets the road and each branch knows their market and customers the best. I love the experience and the family feeling that I have experienced here at ABC Supply, so keep that culture going and the team will follow as well.

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

    Pros

    Uncapped commission and great benefits. ABC provides an opportunity that many companies cannot, making it easy to plan for the future.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work long hours. Although the company preaches working hard and having fun, the working hard aspect is always more of an imperative.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to focus more on cross training individuals. This would help eliminate some of the stress of position changes and filling important gaps in employment.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, family atmosphere, focus on associates, great options to advance. Communication on a company level is above and beyond. I have voiced my goals and have been given the opportunity to reach those goals in an acceptable timeline.

    Cons

    At this point in my journey with ABC, I do not have any cons. They have allowed me to voice what I want my path to be and have offered help and guidance to achieve it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing employees to have a voice. Knowing that our opinions and ideas are considered is extremely valuable and satisfying.

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

    Pros

    ABC Supply is a very large corporation with an equally large number of opportunities for growth. I started with ABC three years ago as a delivery driver. The work is demanding and a lot of responsibility is placed on the drivers. The ability to make decisions at the lowest level definitely helped me get a favorable look from management. Since starting as a driver, I have moved to inside sales, outside sales, and now manager in training. Working hard is rewarded by this company!

    Cons

    Working in every type of weather.
    Shingles are very heavy!
    Roofs can be very steep. Do not hire on as a driver or helper if you are afraid of heights!

    Advice to Management

    Each location is it's own business entity. The great managers make a great environment for the whole team, but some branches struggle. A little more involvement from higher echelons of leadership in struggling branches may be necessary. I do not know this for a fact... I come from a branch with one of the great managers.
