    I have been working at Gexpro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours-a little too flexible
    Great pay for those that don't really put forth the effort to do their job.
    Good hours.
    Good Benefits-that is why the slackers stay with the company. No other company would allow this.

    Cons

    Management is very lax in managing their employees. The employees do pretty much what they want and when they want. They take too much time off and do not report it (said by one of the employees). Employees are not held accountable for their lack of work ethics. Been told by some employees that they do not do the updates that are set by the company. Dress code is whatever they want to wear at any day of the week even though the employees wear jeans and tennis shoes during the week when it supposed to be just on Friday. Only some employees help answer the phone when it should be everyone. Management is afraid to reprimand their employee for not doing their job. As long as the other employees take care of the ones who don't they think everything is ok. Has poor moral but no one says anything anymore because they have taken their issues to management before but nothing is done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Employees are robbing you blind. They come in late almost every day. They take too long of lunch breaks. Leave early or don't come in at all and does not report time off. Management doesn't seem to care that employees are robbing the company of time. You could have less employees if you had good employees. Paying someone for not doing their job is not the way to go. You should really listen to those that has something to say. They are trying to tell you something.

    Pros

    Great hours, a plethora of ways to learn on the job, and very good benefits.

    Cons

    Their pay is well below most other companies in the industry. Also it's not very organized although their trying to fix that.

    Advice to Management

    You have a large sales staff. However, I generally feel most of them are not on incentivized pay.

    I have been working at Gexpro full-time

    Pros

    Pay is above average and the team I work with at the branch is awesome.

    Cons

    Management is remote and has lost the knowledge of how it is in the branch level. Plus add to their random closing of branches there is a serious distance between vp's and above and the branch level.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house from vp's on up and get people in those positions who know how the branch level really works.
