    I worked at Johnstone Supply full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The fact that most employees have remained for well over 10 years speaks volumes as to the working environment. After 30 years of independent business ownership I spent my last 5 working years surrounded by, with few exceptions, dedicated hard working co-workers. Both pay and benefits were above industry standards. The owner repeatedly showed his care and concern for his employees from actions as simple as celebrating everyone's birthday with a cake to insuring the financial well being of individuals in times of need. This company places an enormous emphasis on employee training and education.

    Cons

    Because of the multifaceted aspects of this industry there is a steep learning curve in developing the skill sets necessary to become proficient in handling the day to day activities in a leadership role.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide key employees with the compensation and benefits commensurate with their dedication and loyalty.

    I have been working at Johnstone Supply full-time

    Pros

    I am in charge of all sales, estimating, job design, inventory, purchasing, accounts payable and accounts receivable.

    We are sometimes short staffed and it is hard to stay on top of everything.

    Excellent people to work with. Outstanding customer service. Depth of product knowledge is unbelievable. If your product need is available, they will find it or tell you where it is available, even when they cannot provide the product you need.

    Location needs to be larger and is in the works.

    I have been working at Johnstone Supply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Johnstone Supply hires adults, no one looks over your shoulder. You do your job to the best of your abilities and it is noticed and appreciated. If you struggle and speak up you will get tools to help yourself. Continued learning is encouraged and offered within the company.

    Cons

    It's easy to get in over your head and not realize it. Mistakes are expensive for the company both financially and it's reputation. With a small clientele being contractors only small mistakes add up fast and soil your and the company's name.

    Pros

    Long Term employees. Everyone does what it takes to get the job done.

    Cons

    Pay rate, although it falls in line with what other companies are paying here, is far below what it takes to meet the Cost of Living.
