    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Essendant full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    *Positive & Friendly Co-workers (*only a few) PTO & other benefits started almost immediately Weekly Pay

    Cons

    ALMOST EVERYTHING including unreasonable metrics. Numerous system issues will plague your work day while management will not acknowledgment how said defects impact performance. Don't be surprised if you're written up, placed on a performance improvement plan and threatened with termination even if you have documented computer issues verified by I.T. themselves. Many employees complained about various... discriminatory practices yet these complaints fell on the deaf ears of management and Human Resources. Customer Service wages are lower than quite a few other companies. Only apply to this company as an ABSOLUTE LAST RESORT. I GUESS working for Essendant is better than unemployment🙏🏽 (maybe) smh 🙍‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    Advice to Management

    If Essendant won't spring for updated and new equipment AT LEAST don't penalize the employees for system related performance issues.
