    Pros

    Lots of overtime during the Spring and Summer.
    Clean work environment.
    It's not hard work and I've had worse jobs.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    Insurance is appalling.
     Most insurance these days is bad but for the size of the company it's really not good.
    Some branch managers rock while others don't.
    Branch manager sets the tone of branch.
    Regional manager depends on who you have.
    Some are thought of very highly while others make you wonder who they fooled to get hired.
    Some people at Corporate are extremely nice while others aren't.
    Dealing with a few people in purchasing is a nightmare.
    *With exception Doug Ludwig is a champ.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't care what I think.
    I'm a low paid cog who can be easily replaced.
    I have worked at my branch for 2 + years while I get my side business rolling.
    It's not a horrible place to work but truthly the most anyone will ever be is branch manager and corporate is where Ewing employees go to burn out.
    From the grief they throw at my manager who is a great person I would never want the job.

    I really wish I could give it more stars but it doesnt deserve it.

    Pros

    Training, opportunity for growth, build a career, family owned, community employee events great benefits, easy work life balance

    Cons

    Slower paced in terms of career growth. Very steady, but you have to pay your dues. They understaff each warehouse, so you are always in a little over your head.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people per branch, better communication between branches

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

    Pros

    It is nice to work at a place that, even though it has experienced huge growth, still feels like a family business. You can still pick up the phone and call the owner directly. They still treat their employees with respect. Ewing also has a great benefits package. Health insurance almost totally covered for the individual employee, profit sharing, 401K, 3 weeks vacation for long term employees, sick time, scholarship programs, etc. Plenty of opportunity for personal growth. Sales are growing rapidly and so are all of the branches and departments. Lots of advancement opportunities. A really great employee training program that provides a path for advancement. Like any job, you get out of it, what you put into it. If you want to be successful, you will have many chances to advance and have a great career.

    Cons

    Lots of change from growth, create uncertainty and doubt.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing, but never forget the family culture that has made this company great.

    I have been working at Ewing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Ewing for a few years now and the training is they give is second to none to their customers and employees.

    Cons

    They grossly underpay you. Healthy more then doubles every year and the person that is managing the health plans for the company doesn't use the plans they get for the company. Health Plans are sub-par at best. They raise your health and 99% of the time will not even give you a raise to help cover it so basically you get a pay cut every year. And if you use any kind of tobacco product forget it you pay an extra 50 a month for that privilege I personally don't smoke any more but that is still bs next thing you know they will make you pay extra for being even just 1 pound over weight. But they have competitive pay right? NOPE! You are paid way below industry standard and if you work in the "Office" you are even more screwed over then the branch locations. The employees sit on top of each other basically 1 small fridge for every 50 employees, no brake room you have to sick at your desk to eat, you have to park on the street and they are not even up to code for the number of restrooms or stalls that you are supposed to have for an office. It is all store store store store and screw your personal life and we want you to pay to work for us but even the stores get the short end of the stick on most things. I know what you are thinking there must be some perk to working there? The answer is no there really is no perk to working here.

    Advice to Management

    Improve at least some of the cons to make working here bearable. (Pay, Restrooms, rest ares anything really).
