I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits.vacation Not much else.

Cons

Very top heavy in management To many goals.Upper management has no clue what the worker bee do. Lots of high paid management that are not needed.Reactive not proactive.Lousy at MRO .Does not replace workers when they leave so double,triple work load for everybody else. Culture was preached but no longer Run by how much big wigs can make on stock options.Wants to be everything to every company but cannot come through. No advancement.

Advice to Management

Get back to basics of selling metalworking. Start caring about lower level employees or they will have none with any experience.Stop being so greedy and start sharing the wealth.

    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.
