    I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great profit sharing plan once vested. Benefits are decent but not great, however they start right from day 1.

    Cons

    There's little to no room for upward movement from entry level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Build from within. Don't alienate your loyal employees that you've already invested in.

    I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Good starting hourly pay
    -hard to beat benefits (most are from day 1, too)
    -room to grow
    -rare values for a company this size
    -high retention rate (most people I've met have been with Grainger over 10 years, many over 20).
    -stable/responsible financially
    -great co-workers (some of the happiest people I've worked with)
    -weekends off
    -great PTO policy
    -easy to join in with top notch training
    -this employer's actions demonstrate its cares about employees and customers

    Cons

    -I work at a top performing branch that has great leadership. Only thing I can think of is not the company's fault. But I can't go by my bank unless I request time off.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep modeling after top performing branches! It works.
