    I have been working at BlackHawk Industrial full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits Senior Leadership Team that is open to feedback from the entry level No micro-managing - If you're a self starter and driven, everyone will move out of your way and let you do what you do You are a not a number, you will likely even have a face to face with the CEO at some point Because of the self driven nature of this company and industry, virtually all positions are going to get you project management experience.

    Cons

    This is a mid-level size company that is rapidly growing so if there is a new process to develop or learn, it may end up being you This is not the job for individuals who need to be told what and how to do everything, Be prepared to come up with ideas and then be expected to implement those ideas yourself. Be prepared to learn something new by teaching yourself. Be prepared to wear many hats depending on what the company needs at any given time. These are not necessarily cons to everyone, but it's important to set expectations. If you require a supervised workload with a box that you can climb into and think inside of, then it will be a challenge until you climb outside of that box.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at BlackHawk Industrial full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good starting pay and benefits start before probation period ends

    Cons

    Very bad training, no one is willing to help or share work. You definitely feel like an outsider when you start here. Too much idle time. If you want to do nothing all day here’s the place to work.

    I have been working at BlackHawk Industrial full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place to work as long as you are self motivated and know the industry. Management varies by location of course but inside sales management is nothing but the best

    Cons

    High deductible insurance and I have heard of other locations that struggle to retain employees. Flexibility of work/life balance depends on your specific management team and can very tremendously by person

    Pros

    None its a paycheck. Company doesn't really care about customers or employees. Fellow employees are good people and most want to leave.

    Cons

    They ask certain employees to write a good PRO review for themselves on Glassdoor to raise their star value here. Company has not structure.
