    I worked at Anixter Fasteners full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well run division of the huge Anixter International. Seemed to have a good plan for the future. Too bad they decided to sell the division.

    Cons

    Sold the fastener division to a private equity firm.

    I worked at Anixter Fasteners full-time

    Pros

    Direct managers are very helpful and will go to bat for you.
    Employees that have been there multiple years have ascended into managing roles.

    Cons

    Not enough time in the day to get all your tasks done.
    Pay is on low end of supply chain jobs, very high turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the troops informed with what is going on in the business. Since pay is low, need more incentives for employees to stay.

    I worked at Anixter Fasteners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great entry level position with opportunity for growth and advancement. Senior Mgmt care about the team and is even reflected in how he calls his group team members and not just employees. Always being inventive in how to make things better and encouraging team members to be apart of it...

    Cons

    Large team, that can at times drive gossip which is never good at place of work. Advancement takes time and can be difficult with the size of competition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it! Executives need to make sure they keep their Director and middle managers! Not always about numbers, remember the culture

    Pros

    Highly Structured, well defined roles. Endless opportunity to learn and grow. Lots of opportunity to make vertical moves within organization.

    Cons

    Compensation package is not competitive, very high turnover rate for this reason.

    Advice to Management

    The best thing you can do is work to engage employees and find other ways than compensation to show employees that they are valued.

    Lots of versatile learning opportunity and super helpful management. Very encouraging, understanding, and supportive. It's easy to move and work in the different departments that support the company.
