    I worked at McCoy's Building Supply part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Works with college students and their schedule, you learn all about lumber and building, meet some great people and contractors (they'll give you advice on how to fix stuff at home!), and pretty good pay

    Cons

    No room for growth unless you're male, you have it in with the McCoy family, or have family with some higher up connections. Didn't get to grow or learn all the skills I wanted, they always said "later" but it never came. Work for a good 2 or 3 years and was never taught to mix paint, re-key, or cut wir/rope/chain. They always gave it to people under me or inexperienced or those who didn't care to learn or bad at their jobs. Also if you're a cashier you're basically almost doomed to be that forever, it sucks, and you're almost always never away from the registers. When you finally get a break from them, you're called back almost immediately. Manger won't admit it, but plays favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Really take a good look at your employees! The ones who work really hard and want to grow and learn! Stop overlooking them and giving it to whomever you favor. Or giving it to the ones who don't care or make numerous mistakes on a daily basis but have been here a long time.

    I worked at McCoy's Building Supply part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They work with college students, they will help you get the hours that you need. They welcome questions and are open to hearing suggestions.

    Cons

    They take advantage of you being a college student needing money, as in making you stay way, way late doing things that the Full Time Staff finds undesirable.
    The manager (at the time) would make employees do ridiculous stuff to keep busy. For instance, he had me go outside in 35 degree weather to paint the warehouse stairs with oil base paints. The paint doesn't stick well under 65 degrees, and then proceeded to get upset with me about it being off. Older staff acted very vindictively to the younger staff as they were scared of being replaced. Manager plays favorites

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great thing by working with college students, but maybe pay attention to how the older employees treat the younger ones. I've seen hard working young employees get fired due to them being disliked by the older staff.

    ill management; need schedule rotations,

    hire someone who has people skills and a clue about how to manage a team rather than a young person who continuously has to be talked to, retrained.

    Pros

    Family owned company with leaders that focus on not only growing the company but also on growing and developing others.

    Cons

    Hours are long, pay increases are only reviewed once per year

    Advice to Management

    Consider cutting back the hours so as to allow for more family time, to align with the motto of family values. It's hard to do it all on Sundays alone.

    Pros

    Family oriented, Friendly, best people to work with

    Cons

    Long hours, when moving to a new store you don't get very long to find a home. When you want to move you are asked to move within two weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Give us more time to find a place to live when relocating. This is the only con that I can think of working here.

    Cons

    Management asks you do to one thing and then you do it and they ask for more.

    Advice to Management

    REMEBER WHOM MAKES THE COMPANY NOT THE SIGN IN THE DOOR THE EMPLOYEES INSIDE!

    Pros

    Headquarters: Amazing culture! Mr. McCoy prides himself on creating a family feel in the corporate environment. There are many comforts on the job. A very comfortable atmosphere. The company likes to challenge employees, at least in the department I
    work in. They will seek to identify your strengths and weaknesses and build your position accordingly. Allowing you to promote your strengths but also work on growth and busting through weaknesses. The benefits are fantastic. It really is a dream job in the sense that you enjoy spending 40 hours a week.. Everyone here has pride in their jobs and assumes an ownership of their surroundings.

    Cons

    The only con, for me, would be the pay. And that is because this area is very expensive. The pay just doesn't come close to the cost of living. Throw in the fact that I am a single mother and it becomes next to impossible. If it weren't for friends and family...I wouldn't make it here at all.

    Advice to Management

    Not much. Other than maybe reassess the cost of living to wage ratio.
