    Pros

    I came to Grimco with very little experience and they were willing to work with me and train me to be comfortable working with customers. I come to work everyday because I love the people I work with and I feel like I am contributing to the larger picture. I'm really lucky to have found a place where they will give you the tools to be successful with realistic expectations and goals where I can hold myself accountable and work with my manager to layout my own progression.

    Cons

    Haven't had a bad day yet!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive reinforcement and continue casual Fridays!

    Pros

    Great people to work with! I have a Manger and a Regional manager that listen to me and understand my questions, comments, and concerns.

    Cons

    I think that the one thing that sticks out the most is our delivery service could be much improved. They need to have a more structured crew.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that the company provide the warehouse employees some uniforms so that they do not mess up their own clothes.
