    I worked at Applied Industrial Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay isn't bad, plus you get monthly bonuses if the monthly profit margins are good.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful, and the management doesn't understand the nuances of your job or why it takes so long to accomplish certain tasks. Management will play favorites... I was a hard worker and fired for a small mistake, while they overlooked larger mistakes or slacking by people they favor. Bottom line, if you are not "liked" you'll get crucified for mistakes others can get away with.

    Management was corrupt, allowed to damage a persons career and blackball good employees for life.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention when you start loosing multiple employees due to a manager and don't make a person un-reinstate-able, or allow a manager to have that much power. Look at the employee's record.

    I worked at Applied Industrial Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice facilities, company car, gas card and vendor incentives. Good benefits.

    Cons

    A ton of reports. It's hard to be in front of the customer with all the reports. Also, can spend hours in the office putting together quotes. Not the greatest pay and tough to make more if you have a lot of national contracts since profit margins are so low and set by corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more inside people and eliminate or streamline some of the reports so the account manager can spend more time in front of the customer. By having more inside people the AM will spend less time in the office working on quotes.


  7. "Marketing"

    Pros

    central location, laid back, friendly, love their charity work

    Cons

    They do not honor loyalty of their employees that has been with them for an extensive time period.

    I would suggest treating their long time employees with more respect and stop discriminating because of age.

    Advice to Management

    Don't for get where you came from. Don't look down on your customer service & sales people. You would be nothing without them.
