    I worked at Graybar Electric full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many decent vendor trainings that they host or send you to. Graybar has good benefits, company car, laptop and cell phone.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't great. Locked in to a low salary for a couple years, then give you extreme budgets to get too. Pay doesn't reflect amount of margin dollar sales. Not a lot of support. Some management is lacking. Many unnecessary meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear direction.

    I worked at Graybar Electric full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to work for. Fair pay, good benefits and opportunities. Management recognizes hard work and successes. Quality products to sell, and good relations with vendors.

    Cons

    Don't be the low man on the seniority list. No matter how good you are or the rating you get on your review once you are laid off there is never a chance for a return. Company policy is they will never rehire an ex-employee. No matter the reason for the lay off.

    Advice to Management

    If you lay off a good employee because of a slow down, look to that employee as a rehire when openings arise. Why train a new employee when you have someone that could step in and start day being productive one???
