    Pros

    Being a wholesale distributor, Johnstone Supply was only open Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm. So you always had your evenings and weekends free.

    Sometimes the chaos at the busy time of the year was overwhelming.

    Pros

    There really were none to speak of

    Cons

    Inept communication from management as to exact job responsibilities. Employees at Corporate are scattered around various states. They treat there new hires with no dignity and less then proper pay. High turnover given their business structure. Threw onto a computer without any training then was fired for no reason by their President - Get This By telephone call after only 8 days. I was given no chance not even a fighters chance to be successful my boss the controller was based out of Oregon. No explanation was given other then some of the girls (catty I must say) didn't like me. The way they let me go was totally unethical and unprofessional!!
    Stay Away they are fools gold!!

    Pros

    Great people to work with, they really take care of you. Concerned with not just your job but your well being. Spectacular management and always willing to listen and help.

    Cons

    Insanely busy in the summer and winter, and still does steady business thru the off seasons. Be prepared to work and sweat and learn.

    Advice to Management

    Salary increases and mental health days that don't cut into your vacation days on the off seasons?
