    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits, plenty of challenges, fairly flexible scheulde, time off is better than average (provided you negotiate your vacation and don't accept the typical vacation accrual).

    Cons

    The manager who hired me was fantastic and then he retired. Management brought someone in who knew absolutely nothing. Now, we are micromanaged and controlled through fear, intimidation and threats. Knowledge and experience mean nothing to Ferguson. It is a clique and if you don't know the right people, you won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

    Advice to Management

    Handle your promotions fairly and ethically. Instead of giving lip service for associates to treat the customer right even when the associates themselves aren't being treated right is counterproductive. You do not get loyal employees (or customers) by beating them until their morale improves. Deal with your employees in an ethical and honest manner and you will be rewarded with great employees who treat the customers right.

    Stop wasting money on human resources, cut back on spending, trim the lousy workers and pay the good workers more
