    Pros

    The company offers great insurance benefits, regional and corporate support. I would recommend this company for anyone looking to break into the industrial distribution selling environment.

    Cons

    Sales training can be a challenge and communication with the service within the service center can be a challenge if one is not a self-starter. Entrepreneurial mindset is a must!!

    I worked at Applied Industrial Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    very good manager. made a lot of close friends at work. could work a pretty traditional 7am - 4pm day with very little overtime.

    Cons

    I had a very good manager, but many of the other high level folks in IT were very average.

    Advice to Management

    they placed very little value on employees trying to better themselves (Graduate school, for example). In fact, one former CIO once said in a mtg...and I am paraphrasing here....'Tell all your employees that just because they get an MBA, does not mean they get a raise'. he was missing the point entirely. those individuals that get those advanced degrees are exactly the people you want to keep. many of them (although, not all) are the leaders of the future. I have seen so many companies take talented people for granted. In fact, when I left Applied Industrial, I got a raise of more than 20%. This was not an anomaly. Many other folks that I know, who also moved on from AIT, had the same experience.

    Pros

    Great coworkers with solid camaraderie as well as a good work-life balance. The work is not difficult and after some experience you can count on being cross-trained to other jobs within the DC.

    Cons

    No room for advancement within distribution center and not much encouragement from management.

    Advice to Management

    Share opportunities for advancement with employees. Reevaluate position requirements to assure that the current holders can still cut it.

    Pros

    Great knowledge base in the experienced personnel. Personnel are very professional and always willing to help others and always do their best for the customers.

    Cons

    Losing good people at an astonishing pace. Hourly personnel struggle to complete their tasks in the 8 hour day. Salaried people are expected to complete all non selling activities on their own time including SAP training. Vendor training is now expected to be completed after 5PM. The Home/Work balance is no more.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your Sellers, Inside and Outside. Customers are not happy with the diminishing resources in the branches.
