I have been working at MSC Industrial Direct full-time

Pros

good overall company, solid foundation for growth although not growing

Cons

Top management not taking any risks to change or grow, a status quo company with questionable growth. Culture a marketing front.HR VP talk culture but don't walk it. favorable treatment of some with verbal misconduct issues towards others while others get disciplined.

Advice to Management

revitalize/change top management from sales to HR and get back on course for growth

    Pros

    -lots of overloading training in your first years
    -generous insurance plan
    -technical support team to back you up
    -commission is great...if you can actually make it.

    Cons

    -just about everyone in the office is written up due to unrealistic metrics
    -managers all have different levels of knowledge/style/rules followed
    -micromanagement at it's "finest"
    -living on welfare 80% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Let us swap vacation time. It says you can in your handbook, but each location chooses or doesn't choose to follow it!!!

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

    Pros

    Health plan is stable as far as I know

    Cons

    I left because of the lack trust in my manager, she wanted to work a deaL CONCERNING THE NUMBER OF DAYS of vacation I had remaining in Dec. We disagreed, HR confirmed I was correct.
    HR says you can talk anonymously,wrong, the HR women says I need to know everything,including who I am and which branch I am employed.
    Culture equals control
    Use em,abuse em and lose em,all are replaceable if you work in the branches.
    The MSC monthly lists employees by location and number of years worked,very few branches
    folks last over 4 yrs.
