    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.

    Pros

    Great people and an even better culture!

    Cons

    They were a newer company when I worked there, I think there was a lot of growing pains to work through!

    I worked at BlackHawk Industrial full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees better training. Tell your current employees to share their work and be more inviting

    Pros

    Fun, casual dress code, lots of interaction with other departments

    Cons

    Some lack of focus on bigger projects, so they would start but either not complete, or they would continue to be used after implementations

    Flexible day to day

    Cons

    Do not care about employees

    Advice to Management

    Laid off 2 weeks before my 401k was fully vested (2 years) because of the branch losing a few large accounts. Thanks for re-pocketing thousands I busted my butt for!

    I have been working at BlackHawk Industrial full-time (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

    Advice to Management

    More consistency as a whole across the company, across the country

    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.

    I worked at BlackHawk Industrial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people
    Lax atmosphere
    Casual dress code

    Cons

    Cronyism. This was exceptionally bad for years, although with the 2016 addition of a COO , CFO, and KPIs for everyone this has been improving in 2017.

    Bathrooms: Only 2 stalls available for the women. 1 stall + 1 urinal available for the men. Prepare to wait in line or drive to QuikTrip to use the restroom.

    Advice to Management

    COO is doing a fantastic job!
