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

    Pros

    As is true anywhere, some of the people are nice to be around.

    Cons

    The pay is dismal, as are the benefits (unless you've been working here for 20+ years). As the management ages, they do less work while getting paid more for their "loyalty" while the low level workers have to pick up the slack while never getting raises. No sick leave. An incredibly negative place to work where your good work and ideas are not prioritized if someone with seniority wants to "keep doing things the way they've always been done". New ideas are seen as a threat to the system.

    This company claims to hold family values but doesn't provide enough pay, leave, or flexibility for people to provide well for their families. True, the company is family run, but that is where it stops. Being closed on Sundays doesn't make you a family-focused company. Those in the executive team have enough wealth to be able to provide quality childcare for their families while those doing the grunt work at the company put decades in only to get low pay, terrible benefits, and almost no career advancement opportunities because management only leaves when they die.

    Also, there is an incredibly invasive "personal growth" program that everyone has to go through where you routinely sit in a room with your coworkers (and sometimes someone pretending to be a therapist) and are encouraged to share the deepest, most personal aspects of your life, all in the name of growing closer so that the business can be run better by people who really know each other. The true outcome of this, in my experience, other than regular discomfort was actual hostility and hurt feelings between people who shared very personal experiences with the group, only to be given a pat on the back and told to get back to work.

    I worked here fairly early in my career and didn't realize how truly terribly run this company was until leaving and working several other jobs. Working at this company was terrible for my personal morale and left me feeling exhausted almost always because it was such a frustrating and fruitless experience. If you can get a job anywhere else I would strongly advise that.

    Pros

    McCoy's is by far the best establishment I've ever worked for in my life. The company works around your school schedule and the family atmosphere makes working easier and more efficient. The managment looks out for the employees and genuinely cares for its staff, it something you don't see in companies of today.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to comment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at McCoy's Building Supply full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits; family type atmosphere; off Sundays and evenings; paid holidays; depending on the store overtime is allowed; raises are usually based on performance/promotion; pet friendly; positions are not stagnate

    Cons

    If the store is short handed, you are expected to work extra hours; can be very emotion/feeling oriented; expectations for staying "busy" are not the same for everyone; raises can be past due

    Advice to Management

    Expect the same amount of effort out of everyone; dont get after the employee who is usually going 100% for taking a short break when most others are sitting around chatting or goofing off a good portion of the day. Encourage communication and assistance when things gets busy. If you know someone is working hard but has some minor areas they need to improve on, a small raise to recognize all they do with a larger raise to follow once they improve will be received better than no raise until they improve. If you give someone responsibility over others, be prepared to back them up and support them when they ask.

    I worked at McCoy's Building Supply full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Honest and down to Earth Christian CEO Brain McCoy. Company allows you to make your family a top priority. Most co-workers at the corporate and store levels are friendly and easy to work with. Freedom to test new protocol to increase productivity and accuracy in my position as long as my main responsibilities were completed on time. I loved the position of Store Inventory Coordinator a lot and will miss it.

    Cons

    McCoy's store management were allowed to much freedom/leeway to harass and/or persecute employees that they did not care for or employees that they wanted to leave the company. Store management did not follow company protocol and/or company policy if they did not wish to do so, due to a lack of supervision from the corporate office. My position was monitored and audited by the corporate office but, I reported to the store manager who did not make my position a priority. The stress level this situation created for me was almost unbearable at times.

    Advice to Management

    Store management needs to be held accountable for their actions by upper management and disciplined when necessary just like all other employees who break protocol or company policy. Upper management needs to mentor store managers on a regular basis showing them the correct way to conduct themselves in the McCoy states. Employees who's job performance is monitored by the corporate office should have their evaluations for advancement and/or pay increases handled by the corporate office, not store management. You can not serve two different bosses and make both happy! This Bible verse best sums up my point I am trying to make, Matthew 6:24 says, "No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money."

    Pros

    working at McCoys is a complete nightmare. Whether you work in management or not. You must work on Saturdays and the work is highly labor intensive. You never have the same days off. Once they discover your competent they ride you into the ground expecting you to come in early and stay late. And forget about being treated like a decent human being. The culture is work till you have a heat stroke for pennies on the dollar and if you complain about it you will be assigned more physically demanding jobs.

    Cons

    Assistant managers are Treated like nothing more than a hired hands expected to work 63 hrs a week for low pay to do extremely laborious task. Pay is low, work days are 10-12 hrs, and store managers treat employees like they're easily replaceable. Regular hourly employees are treated just as bad. McCoys Mgmt tries to act like they care about their employees by doing mandatory counseling with the crew. It's a complete joke and the most disingenuous corporate culture you could ever imagine.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the team like they're more than slaves who can't find better work.
