    I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Engineers at my local branch (Cincinnati) have an average tenure of 12 years with DXP, with about a third having over 20 years with the company. That really says a lot! In my personal experience, all qualified individuals who express interest are given fair consideration for open positions. Family values are also strong within DXP, starting with the CEO. Regional management/leadership is also bright, focused, supportive, and strong. They know what they're doing, and they work well as a team. My bosses are great. Seriously. They straight out great people. No joke.

    Recently, people from my branch reached out to fellow DXP Texas employees to provide relief and kindness during a time of need. This is the act of DXPeople who exhibit love and understanding toward people in need, and exhibit values at the core of DXP. Things like this make me proud to work here.

    Cons

    DXP has had its fair share of ups and downs. That's no secret. It goes with the territory of being assertive and cutting edge in our business. DXP is a very customer focused, customer oriented, growth company. This sometimes puts DXP at odds with some of the manufacturers whose products we sell, who may not be accustomed to truly putting the customer first.

    Advice to Management

    Know that we love you, we appreciate you, and we know you are doing your best, day in, and day out. Keep giving us the tools and support that we need to succeed, and we will all win together.

    I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is demanding, but overall fair. Incentive compensation gives you a chance to make bank when the company does well, benefits are reasonably good, you get to learn new things all the time, we have really good leaders and managers in the region who always teach us things and do their best to take care of people. We have good business tools to use.

    Cons

    Computer systems could be faster.

    Advice to Management

    Really appreciate the 401(k) match being reinstated. DXP seems to be recovering from some tuff times. Keep taking care of your people.

    I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Almost all people at my branch are nice, atmosphere is fun and there is good banter and teamwork. Not a sweatshop, no one stares you down with a whip and chain making sure you are on task every moment. They trust us to do our jobs, and give us the freedom to do it and still have a good time in the process. Pay is fair. Of course I would always like more. The local leaders are real people, and they communicate with us a lot. We have Q and A sessions, and they answer questions until we don't have anymore. You may not always like the answers, but at least you get them. Overall we get treated good.

    Cons

    Hey, it's a job. You're not always going to like everything and everyone all of the time. So, sometimes I get miffed like anybody else. I goes with the territory working any place. DXP is a good place to work, but it's not Utopia. No place is.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell our management to keep up the good work, and have faith in your people. We are on your side, even though sometimes we like to complain. It's human nature.

    I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    DXP is a big pump distributor, but manages to maintain some of the good feel of a smaller family run pump house. We just got our 401(k) match back! Good product lines. Easy location to get to. Our local managers are the best in the business. They treat us with respect Our CEO is a down to earth guy. You can get ahead if that's what you want to do. Or you can stay in the job you're in and keep it for a long time if that's what you want to do. Almost everybody has a really good attitude. If you want to move to a new location, you can do that with DXP. They have locations all over the place. Our local leaders just installed a very nice new picnic area in back of our offices to enjoy on nice days.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's cold in the office (I get cold easily). We could use new carpeting. I would like to go outside with some of the sales people now and then to meet with customers and see what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen to bad comments left by a former employee with an ax to grind. Focus your efforts on the "A" players that are here.

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

    Pros

    Lots of overtime. Good insurance. I've seen it take a lot for some one to actually get fired. Paid sick days.

    Cons

    Poorly ran company from top to bottom. They use their pretty good benefits to keep from giving out raises. Oil industry so they do have layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at tyler facility where there was no room to move up. Had to leave because they wouldn't pay for good work.

    I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Salary is decent but the downside is you never get a raise after being hired.

    Cons

    Don't expect to get a raise after being hired. Nepotism runs rampant here. There are hidden love affairs amongst managers. Very cliquish and treacherous people so fit in and be prepared to throw your coworkers under the bus or get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Management at all levels need to be evaluated in the region. Many abuse company money.

    Wide network of opportunity to meet customer needs and low price demands

    Accounting group in Houston manages all receivables and payables, the departments under this umbrella lack efficient process to service all branches and make the day to day transactions difficult.

    Bring in professionals to lean processes and consider newer technologies in ERP and business transactions for faster processing.
