    I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Our company was bought out by DXP and we were still working with the same wonderful group of people.

    Cons

    Upper Management refused to listen to the people who actually handled the work. Lots of turn over at the Corporate Level and Upper Management could not see that it was the department managers that were causing the issues and not the hard working people within the department. They do not value longevity, nor experience that employees offered who had worked many years in the industry.

    Computer system was not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying up companies and fix what you have. Keep those folks from the companies you have already bought, who actually have experience in the industry. Listen to what they are telling you, they can and will help you grow your business.

    I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Easy to get to. Holidays off work is a plus.

    Cons

    Managers have favorites and let them get away with anything. Comes in late and leaves early everyday. Constantly gossiping with csr's about other employees which can be overheard. Not professional at all.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate current managers and employees that have been with company for awhile. Shouldn't have same family members under one roof that take advantage of it and power play. Not professional and makes other employees on edge. Not smart to do DXP. Makes you look bad.

    Pros

    I've been working here 3 months and really enjoy my job and the people I work with plus my boss is awesome.

    Cons

    A few more dollars an hour would really help out and go along way, the work although I enjoy it is pretty challenging and I believe higher pay would be justified.

    Advice to Management

    I look forward to being in one of your spots one day:)

    I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    During my last six months, there were no pros. Just the same crap that help push us into a complete nosedive.

    Cons

    Terrible management and plenty of it.

    It sucks when you’re backlogged and you’re listening to your middle manager in the next office talking to family and friends all day on the phone - even yelling at the kids to do their chores. When printing to the main printer it wasn’t uncommon to find the sports schedule of the branch manager’s kids along with report cards and teacher correspondence. The boss arrives by 10 and leaves by 4 so she can shuttle the kids to practice or their game. It was a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that can do the job. Manage by true metrics and not by friendship. Assign appropriate workload across the board and let people do their jobs. Provide viable support.

    Pros

    Great hours if you enjoy being away at 14 hours a day 7 days a week, and if your home enjoy being called in.
    Office management has been great.

    Cons

    The safety side of business has great office manager and regional manager. That being said the field side of management has been poor, no days off without receiving a call. Can’t go to the doctor when your sick due to a lot of work coming in all the time. Over work there employees constientaly. New hires get training about the equipment we operate but nobody trains them on it causing them to never get crazy hours. Take a look at the fleet of vehicles you guys have they are decent trucks with terrible maintance. All in all there’s a lot of work that needs to be done at this office a.s.a.p.

    Advice to Management

    You guys must take a closer look at the jobs we take and understand you can not run people 16 and 17 hours a day for 6,7 days a week. Family time needs to be more important.

    Pros

    Local managers try to be best in business but not. 401(k) is back but not enough. Family run business not good a lot of times

    Cons

    Picnic area money should be spent on carpet in office instead of personal manager offices. To cold in the office! Need more lunchs

    Advice to Management

    "A" players here can be the "F" team. Be open to all opinions. Need more onsite sales training. More 401(k) option.
