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

    Pros

    The working environment is consistent and great for professional growth. Overall my department has great chemistry and make working here a positive experience. I've worked for other organizations that had a slow or no formal onboarding process, but here I've received good training.

    The pay and benefits are average to other positions within my field ,but some of the incentives assist in this area and there is room for advancement within the company. I have worked for companies with higher pay ,but less incentives and negative work environments which can make it difficult to stay positive about coming to work.

    Cons

    Management training could be increased a bit

    Pros

    If you have good production numbers and a want to move the ladder, the will help you do this. The Dallas branch moved me from a Warehouse Packer to a Procurement Buyer in three years. This will not be the track for everyone, but with the right work ethic and drive you can get to a satisfactory place in the company.

    Cons

    High amount of employees makes and rigorous production demands make you feel more like just a number than a named employee. Very long hours in the warehouse. Lots of overtime. Everything is production based so if you're not performing as needed you will not last.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like people, not numbers. Provide incentives, especially for people working long hours.

    starting pay way too low with no current raises in a years time

    I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay competitive with other local DC jobs. Plenty of overtime opportunities. DC manager is a fair, no-nonsense, straight-shooter and recognizes those DC associates who are dependable and work hard, too. No "flying below the radar" here. Standard individual performance metrics, updated and posted publicly. Good equipment. Benefits available.

    Cons

    Extremely hot during summer months (no AC on production floor), not located in the best neighborhood. Work hours can spike and be somewhat excessive (weekends and overtime) based on customer demand. Shift supervision sometimes erratic.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a career path for associates to supervisory/management opportunities.

    I have been working at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great company culture and atmosphere
    - People are mostly friendly and great to work with
    - Extensive training is offered (especially during a good market)
    - Learn and gain a lot of experience and knowledge

    Cons

    - Very low pay with not much of a raise, even during a good market.
    - Vacation time is ridiculous. Never heard of having to wait 10 years for 3 weeks vacation. If you tell someone that from outside the company they have never heard of that either and think that is ridiculous. Most people have said companies give 4 at 10 years and 5 weeks at 15 years and 3 weeks come A LOT sooner. Most employees at this company complain about this frequently. The company needs to get with the modern times on vacation policy.
    - benefits and 401K could be better

    Advice to Management

    - if you want to keep your employees happy, you really need to reevaluate how much you pay or you will start to see more employees leave once the job market gets better and more jobs start to become available at other companies that will pay more for doing the exact same thing they do at DXP
    - Reevaluate the vacation policy
    - Make sure to reward great employees before it's too late

    Listen to workers and try to help them. Be open minded

    Pros

    Working hours were great. Friendly environment and the pay was very well. I recommend this job to anyone seeking a position. With the company

    Cons

    Pros

    I worked in ops and then IT. Both direct managers helped me grow in my roles and gave direction to be successful

    Cons

    Too many relatives working together in the same departments can cause conflicts and favoratism. DXP pays much lower compared to any company in this industry

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay bracket by matching it to market value for similar positions. Pay was the #1reason i saw people leave

    I worked at DXP Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck (which isn't much to speak about)
    You get paid to do nothing (corporate)
    You get paid if you know nothing (corp)
    You get a job if you are related or friends
    You get a job if you graduated from A&M (guaranteed if you graduated from A&M, you will get a job whether you show up to work or not).
    If you put an A&M shirt on a desk chair, that desk chair will get a paycheck.
    Unfortunately, the chair has more of a purpose at DXP than an A&M grad.

    Cons

    Very few people know what they are doing
    No 401k
    Benefits are expensive
    "Dated" technology which crashes constantly
    Pay cuts
    Lies to employees
    Ignorant and out of touch management
    No raises or merit increases
    No support
    No training
    No defined mission or directional objective
    Laziness
    You have a ton of HR reps, they are useless
    Accounting department is useless and decides when they are going to pay vendors regardless of terms. DXP only will pay net 60 terms no matter what was agreed upon, thus creating issues for on time delivery for customers

    Advice to Management

    Honestly Mr. Little, you need to have a closer look at the people who are working for you! DXP used to be a great company a long time ago. Unfortunately, it's not only the down turn in the market which is killing DXP. It is imploding from the inside. Management is demoralizing their employees and various people who have their positions feel entitled. I have seen numerous people whom have helped build this business wrongfully let go, while the people who retain their positions are no better if not worse. For this reason, DXP will continue to experience this cancer (points outlined above) which will lead to DXP's demise. I know that you don't want to hear negative "as it is contagious", but how can you build a positive company without hearing about the truth that plagues your business?
