Pros

Easy computer system to learn and very good product line offering. Great customer retention also with great marketing backup. And great overall communication.

Cons

Central ordering through a distribution center by people who have no idea what your local stock levels should be. Limit of $250 for branch managers to buy goods without going through a buyer.

Advice to Management

Allow branch managers more of a say in what their branch stocks and the levels of inventory. Also split up the larger zones into smaller ones.

    I worked at Baker Distributing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Getting to know the local contractors

    Cons

    Sales were down due to not many houses being built at that time so they let everyone go including a counter sales guy that had been there for almost 30 years. Hired lower pay people and even they are now gone.

    None
