No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    No micromanagement, freedom to work around personal issues that may arise, a lot of longtime employees to answer questions and train you, dress code not strict for a "corporate office"

    Cons

    Compensation does not match expected output, outdated office surroundings, no posting of open positions, favoritism, not open to change even though growing every day, will only receive promotion if someone leaves or dies, no one takes ownership in a mistake even though there are no repercussions

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the efforts of ALL employees. not just a xhosen few. Find a way to regulate the temperature in the building [after all, you are an air conditioning supply house]
