    Pros

    6% 401k match Great healthcare Tuition reimbursement Friendly coworkers Work Life Balance Permanent implementation of hybrid schedule come H2 2022

    Cons

    Low base pay, about $18 an hr + commission that can be a hit or miss on things out of your control. Your first few months will heavily depend on the performance of the person who had your book of business right before you. Job can be done remotely, no need to return to office let alone in the middle of a pandemic. Especially when we have record profits in the billions that get bragged about at every monthly Townhall. Even more so when there has been no word on adjusting pay for 7.5% inflation in terms of bonuses, hourly raise, etc. Yet the adjustment to protect Grainger profits by increasing product price was enacted. Slow to move up or across into different roles

    Pros

    Full benefits from dental, vision, health, even pet insurance. Very easy schedule, great team environment. Everyone is very encouraging & willing to help in any way they can to help you succeed. Opportunity to grow in company fast.

    Cons

    Hybrid schedule, I think 100% remote should be an option for all sellers. Taking in more seller feedback for a greater seller experience.

    Pros

    If you have good CSG you will get paid out well at the end of each month.

    Cons

    Way too many to list. Management is horrible. Terrible. Micro manage the heck out of you and care about phone time even if the call is a quality connection that’s won you a lot of business.. sometimes these quality calls require a lot of calls to customer service and back orders and calling or working w third party vendors in the building. Hourly pay is not worth the amount of work necessary to be successful here.

    The hours are good and the starting pay is competitive.

    There is a lack of respect between coworkers and the environment is very behind the times. A lot of negativity and backbiting. No respect for the management.
