I worked at Johnstone Supply full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Personal work environment where your bosses get to know you
Family run, so the small business feel is always there
Room for growth and pay raise potential

Cons

Success is heavily tied to the housing market
Sometimes co-workers get away with more than they would at a larger corporation
Possibility for lay offs higher than a larger company

Advice to Management

Don't show favoritism and actually reward hard workers with incentive

    I have been working at Johnstone Supply full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cannot think of anything. Can't wait to get out of here. Worst mistake of my life taking a job here.

    Cons

    Incredibly bad benefits package. 90 day waiting period and so expensive it's unrealistic to work here if you are supporting a spouse and children. 2 weeks PTO so you cannot afford to be sick or you lose vacation.

    Senior management disconnected. Barely engage level 1 managers on planning.

    Antiquated technology systems. Hard to find information or know where to look.

    Old, cold office building. Bring a sweater.

    Corp office is near Airport/freeway, so basically nowhere to go at lunch, you are stuck in a desolate location and have to drive to get to anything.
