No opinion of CEO

I worked at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I honestly cannot think of any reason to possibly want to work for this company. And that is to bad because the company has good products and a good value basket, but the greed is noticeable every hour of every day.

Cons

All the company is interested in is the bottom line. commission structure is the worst in the sales business. Turnover is very high in management as well as sales executives.

Advice to Management

Take a look at some of the exit interview comments if you already have not, and maybe listen to a few people and make some changes.

    I worked at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    nothing to really speak of

    Cons

    restrictive, slow to react to market trends, culture-bound, whistleblowing is actually encouraged with a Hotline. Creativity is discouraged. Multiple layers of admin makes it hard to get anything accomplished. VERY slow to move on anything, including the hiring process.

    Advice to Management

    Be more responsive to your people. Stop encouraging tattle-taling and backstabbing.

    I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the pros for this company is career opportunities, culture, resources and benefits. With my experience at msc i have became a confident sales rep and learning news ways to provide great customer service.

    Cons

    the cons is the pay for my position and all the responsiblities for the amount of pay. Plus training has been on the low end of the postion. Also poor hiring in some fields in the company.

    Advice to Management

    To provide more training with each position.
