I worked at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Grainger is an good place to work. They have excellent training and a tremendous amount of resources to help you be successful at your job. IMO they are by far the strongest company in the MRO in terms of product depth and breadth as well as some of the brightest people in the industry.

Cons

There has been some leadership changes that have resulted in more micro managing, at least on the sales side. I cant speak for the rest of the companies positions. This has resulted in losing many tenured Account Managers

Advice to Management

Make sure to keep quality talent.

    Pros

    The internship program offers interns the opportunity to work on projects that help improve Grainger.

    In general the company has many mobility opportunities but it seems to be contingent on department. Some departments are easier to move to and from then others.
