    I have been working at Crescent Electric Supply full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It should be noted that I have been in the industry for 30 years and have worked for almost every electrical distributor at one point or another. I came to Crescent in 2014 and this is without a doubt the most enjoyable place of employment I have experienced. The support from both my District Manager and the entire team at the corporate office allows me to be extremely successful.

    Cons

    Honestly, I have tried to think of something however I just can't. We all have good days and bad days but I just can't seem to list a "con" in regards to working for Crescent Electric Supply.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your branches as you do.

    I have been working at Crescent Electric Supply part-time

    Pros

    Crescent has a warm and welcoming work environment with Internship opportunities with flexible hours perfect for a busy college students schedule. Superiors value interns opinions and input while applying relevant accounting experience on your resume. I have internship experience in both public and private accounting and find my knowledge obtained here would help in a career in either.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to work with others. Some may find the daily duties mundane and repetitive. Its really up to the intern to get the experience. If you want to pay vendors all day that's what you will probably end up doing. If you want to audit, reconcile or participate in other projects you need to be ambitious

    Advice to Management

    N/A I feel they've always had a mutual interest in the future of the employees as the personal and company growth

    I work with some great people! Great hours and holiday schedule. Love feeling accomplished within my position and love what I do!

    Some training guides can be difficult to understand due to missing information.

    Would like to see our branch updated/remodeled in counter area and office area as it is quite outdated.

    I have been working at Crescent Electric Supply full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Crescent offers advancement opportunities in multiple fields of interest from Construction, Data-comm., Energy, and Industrial sales. Crescent provides learning and development opportunities from the ground floor up for those preparing themselves for the future.

    Cons

    No traditional retirement program but offer a solid 401K plan.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people at all levels. Anyone can build a building, fill it with inventory, develop processes, and procedures but trained employees that feel secure in their employment will reap long term growth and success.
