    Good Entry Level or Career Readjustment

    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

    Decent work environment

    Apr 9, 2022 - Inside Sales Specialist in East Syracuse, NY

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great hours, work benefits are good but slowly being pulled away.

    Cons

    Upper management that is removed from everyday processes and makes poor decisions because of this. Also not seeing the long term effect of their decisions and instead just looking for that quick buck in their pockets.

    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.
