    Pros

    If they are going to be BMC, the company would do well in this region.

    Cons

    If the location was formerly Stock, you might as well assume you will be working for Stock, not BMC with all of BMC's professionalism and advancements within the industry. I've been in this industry for well over 20 years, and I've never seen such a company this poor operationally - and it's all Stock locations, not BMC. Stock refuses to relinquish their archaic and ineffective ways, and BMC leadership is not forcing it. Stock was always one of the weakest and worst companies in this region, and now I know why.

    This company needs to decide if the political battle of cultures and identity are worth the reputation they are earning - BMC would be a great place to work with vast opportunities, Stock never was, and never would have been. It has become quite apparent that the former Stock executives on the board and in the Senior Executive team are more interested in destroying BMC, the company that acquired Stock, out of spite and stupidity, rather than learn from a successful company and build upon what they have been gifted.

    If you are considering BMC that was an old Stock location, don't waste your time, you cannot win or affect positive change. They will not budge from Stock ways, which are backwards, counterproductive and weak, and only served to keep Stock as a non-competitive factor, a bankruptcy and buyout - yet these Stock people still don't get it.

    Don't gamble with your own professional reputation by associating yourself with any BMC region that was formerly Stock.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision and either cede control of old Stock locations back to Stock and let that cancer choke itself out, or clean house of old Stock leadership and continue on with the BMC Brand and Corporate identity. You will never progress in the struggling regions as long as the old Stock guards are in place.

    I worked at BMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers and customers. Good benefits. Employee discounts.

    Cons

    My manager pretended to be busy when her manager came around but otherwise spent her time on Facebook and Amazon. She knows absolutely nothing about the products or the system. She does not care to learn either. I was more of a manager than her.
    Also, being a woman, despite most customers loving me and going to me, I was paid significantly less than everyone else. I helped TRAIN people but upper management never acknowledged me for anything. I loved my job but incompetent management and lack of appreciation and pay completely ruined it.

    Advice to Management

    Amazon and Facebook ARE NOT in your job description. Also, when customers are even asking what the hell your purpose is there...and you've had two awesome employees leave because of you, maybe you need to reevaluate the way you do things...and the imbeciles you hire.

    Pros

    Co workers product availability free company merchandise ie clothing bags hats etc free food tenured employees offer much needed assistance

    Cons

    Customer demands can be stressful due to lack of resources and geographical demand ie size of market area. management doesn’t see smaller things that business requires.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the common man. There are way more moving parts that many realize. Take time to take a step back and look at the smaller picture
