I worked at W.W. Grainger part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits and decent pay. Even with a GED you can work here. Great place if you are looking for a part time job.

Cons

No real opportunity for growth. What they say at hire is a total lie. Company will never have your back, high chance of getting fire.

Advice to Management

You need to find better managers. There is not really a fare OPPORTUNITIES for GROWTH. Some of us have been here for over 10 years and is still a part timer. A lot of back stabbing and micromanagement. Mangers need people skill. Only reason I come into work now is because of my pst, if for not that I would have quit already.

    I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many internal and external resources available to support sales acitivities. Excellent benefits including a profit sharing trust (PST) plan. Account managers also enjoy flexible schedules to help provide work life balance. Senior leadership is excellent and have great vision for how things should be. If you enjoy travel, this is a good position as there are always opportunities to travel to vendor training and the annual tradeshow in Florida.

    Cons

    The very same resources mentioned above can also be toxic and double your workload. Goals can be unreasonable and the company doesn't follow it's own policy for out of business accounts. Making attaining sales goal that much harder. Like squeezing water out of a rock. The flexible schedule can work against you by requiring you to work day and night. You have to leave the country to have an actual vacation.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be consistancy throughout the organization. One market should run the same as others. If a market is struggling with personnel issues, then the management that comes in should support change management and be flexible.
