    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Graybar Canada full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    People you work with in office

    Cons

    Weak management Managed out of Halifax so cannot make a decision without the higher ups from there. A lot of employees just do the minimum as there is no incentive for any extra things they do. Have to pay into a social club Pay for benefits

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions to make your branch better, peoples wages etc. You are going to lose great people due to what you pay them.

    I worked at Graybar Canada full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great company to join if you are an employee whom is happy with mediocrity, the company is managed to maintain the status quo.

    Cons

    The inverse is if you are driven to grow you will eventually outgrow Graybar.

    Advice to Management

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Graybar Canada full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Full time, steady days, benefits from start,

    Cons

    Too many to list. Understaffed and too much stress and workload (especially for the pay). Very poor and dishonest leadership at the branch level. Working 5 hours a day without a break until having an unpaid one hour lunch. Being intimidated into working for free during supplier BBQ's (9 hour day no lunch or break). Low pay for amount of responsibilities due to low staff for the volume of work. Job position wanted 2 years...

    Advice to Management

    Advise to HR is to look at your leadership and what could possibly happen as a result of harassment at the branch level in terms of a potential lawsuit.
