    I have been working at Interline Brands full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with.
    Great team leaders to help you through training and transition.
    Great discount and benefits from all IBI brands.
    Casual dress codes from Mon- Fri

    Cons

    As AR specialist you have to make atleast 45 calls every day while replying and also sending numerous emails to customers

    Collection systems needs upgrading.

    Since transition into HomeDepot, rules have changed and logging into company portal (Kronos) to check time schedule or vacation is quite tedious. So many security measures like we are working for the FBI.

    Advice to Management

    Summary is, in the collection dept., IBI a good company for any one trying to retire because it doesn't actually provide career opportunities for young adults trying to build their career and climb the corporate ladder.

    Good company if you really want to work hard and prove yourself. Since Home Depot bought IBI out, HR and benefits have improved greatly.

    Some areas are infected with nepotism.
