    I worked at Allied Building Products full-time

    Pros

    Really chill, and laid back job. Management is really cool, not on you 24/7. Some sales goals to meet, but nothing crazy. Good money, easy work.

    Cons

    Can get boring at times, but thats because the job is really easy. Some managers or coworkers are a pain to work with some time.


  2. "Overall a Good Place to Work"

    I worked at Allied Building Products full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are great, they care about your opinions and your input. Annual raises and the potential for bonuses (depending on your position). It tends to be busy in the summer, but in the winter it can be low key and mellow. Management understands that life happens outside of work.

    Cons

    Like any job, there are cons. The work loads can sometimes be heavy and the hours can often be long and unpredictable (again depending on position). While raises happen almost annually, the room for advancement is minimal. Management gets comfortable where they have people and dont like to advance. Ive seen some people there for over 10 years still in the same place they started.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a sincere chance to advance into higher positions. You have employees who have great potential, but never get the opportunity to show case them.

    Pros

    Medical insurance, liberal paid time off and 401K are the best things about the company. Good employees have been able to relocate within the industry.

    Leadership has lost all connection with employees and the customer base.

    Clean house at management level. Regional, district, and branch level management needs an overhaul.
