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

Pros

Great base salary, benefits, and company car. There truly is work-life balance at this company. Management fosters a positive work environment where you want to contribute and do your best.

All sales channels work together to create a positive outcome. MSC has not lost sight of what's most important...the customer.

Cons

It takes time to accrue 40 hours of vacation. Most companies give you 1-3 weeks from start date.

Account Executives do not get company issued laptop which can be a challenge.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work and don't lose focus.

    I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    MSC has a wide variety of products and solutions to offer.

    Cons

    Management is VERY negative and seems to believe that all sales territories are the same and should, therefore, be judged the same. Non-metalworking experience is undervalued. MSC will keep associates that have a metalworking background at all costs (no matter what the violation is). Sales growth is expected to be at 30% or greater each year despite the economical situation. Upper management does not fail to give themselves annual raises. Those of us lower on the food chain are told that the poor economy prevents us from being given raises.

    Advice to Management

    You might want to try motivating your "associates" through positive means instead of negativity and degradation. Embrace the differences your "associates" bring and how they enhance the customer experience.

    I worked at MSC Industrial Direct full-time

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest people in the Distribution field.

    Cons

    Human Resources is supposed to be the keeper of the "culture" yet, at the highest levels, are the biggest violators of the "culture".
