I worked at Interline Brands full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A very large product line, and the excitement of negotiating the price of virtually every SKU sold. If you like fast negotiating, this is the job for you!

Cons

Petty micromanagement by immediate superiors. One month they want you to increase sales, the next month they want you to get your margins up. Their CRM is completely out of date - actually three different CRMs, one of which is DOS based. Can you believe that? Warehouses consistently make mistakes, ship broken merchandise; infuriating clients. Management visits from the House of Lords down the street once per quarter, smiles., makes Happy Talk then leaves, same old same old. I got really tired of the treadmill and left.

Advice to Management

Replace half your middle managers, especially a certain arrogant, overrated one at Bay Street. Try listening instead of talking. Invest in a modern CRM. Get competitive on margins.
