Doesn't Recommend

No opinion of CEO

I worked at ProBuild full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The company exposed us to a wide view of the building industry with a vision to transform the way building materials are distributed.

Cons

The national view and methods to sell large builders hurt the local relationships and heart of the relationships with custom builders and remodelers.

Advice to Management

Listen to local management. They are in the market and know the local buyers. The relationships built over long periods of time are being torn apart.

    I have been working at ProBuild full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation plan is very attractive, for those with a mind to produce good profits for the company.

    Cons

    Communication, at least on the local level is lacking. Training programs could be established, and a culture of sharing information, and best practices would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Reduce overlap of sales areas, it's hard enough, without competing with other branches.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work, manager is excellent leader and open for any realistic suggestions! I have been in the industry for 20 years, and am used to having to "go get my check" so I think anyone beginning this position with the thought that, the customers come to you, is not going to make it!

    Cons

    none so far, like I said up top, you get back what you put in!

    Advice to Management

    push for more funding to upgrade the restrooms, if your going to sell these products you should probably use them??
