    Pros

    Great benefits, great technology, mgmt shares information with you

    Cons

    If you don't like sales and being micro-mgmt - than this job is not for you... If you know your job and manage your territory you will be fine. Goals can be too high and mgmt will not decrease it...

    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Janesville, WI
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Grainger full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, Starbucks and a great cafeteria on site, management is as friendly as they come, work meetings were always a great way to communicate with seniors, leaders always listened to concerns, management supported learning, and training program was VERY good.

    Cons

    The hours are not flexible, minimal wiggle room if family emergencies occur (point system), the on going training is not optional, the job itself is repetitive...sitting in a cubicle for 8hrs looking at the screen and saying the same thing over and over is difficult for some (I was stir crazy). Very little room for advancement.
