    I have been working at Grainger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    . Great benefits . Management is there for you, and always trying to help you develop yourself. . Safe, friendly and supportive work environment. . Annual shirt and shoe allowance, computer, phone, unlimited internet, Linkedin learning and many others things provided at no cost. . Mileage and windshield time . All the support you could ask for . They highly encourage you to spend time with you family, and not to get to envolved in your work. . We had the CEO DG Macpherson get on our team call. (Our team has only 17 people.) . They constantly try to get you up into the company. They want you to excede in a bad way.

    Cons

    Only that I didn't get on years ago.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Grainger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Puts their people first. Helps with development into new roles. Good coaching. Work life balance is great, my manager is flexible. Most people here who might not have a good experience expect a promotion by doing just enough to get by or not patient and expect something within a year timeframe. I’ve seen people on my team get promoted and they were stand outs.

    Cons

    A lot of change can happen at once and it can be overwhelming sometimes, especially as a seller. Other than that, I’m happy with the company.
