    I have been working at Mouser Electronics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Laid back office environment, no super strict dress code, generous PTO, occasional employee appreciation lunches, corporate payout bonuses based on sales and overall company performance, with a gym, a Which Wich and a mini clinic on the way in 2017. A Mini Market and ATM are currently onsite for convenience. There is Plenty of room and departments to move around and work for. Not a bad place to work for people that don't want to drive to Dallas and can live on less than Dallas.

    Cons

    Busy, Big, Crowded, parking a country mile away from the building, unchecked water cooler talk spills into the open cubes while you're trying to work. Too many people with bad manners in crowded cube areas. If you like and need quiet to work, forget it. We have ample break areas but some people are always on break and don't bother to take their personal calls or conversations to those designated areas. If you sit next to or across from an attention seeker, earbuds are a necessity.

    Advice to Management

    Please take corrective action sooner than later when employees are repeatedly disruptive and have been reported as such. Also, we need more work from home opportunities for those with proven and reliable work ethic and responsibility for certain positions that can allow it. Even if it's just a few days of the month. The flexibility would be a great and welcomed relief.

    Pros

    The warehouse is a great place to work. It is clean and air conditioned. Frequently the company hosts events to show their appreciation to their employees. The management team really tries to work with you.

    Cons

    I had to go to our VP before Shelly followed up with me on a benefit question.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and responding to your employees.

    I worked at Mouser Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were some good country people who worked there.

    Cons

    Most of those good people have left. Anyone who is not Glen is driven by fear. If you're not into politics or your not related to Glenn, you not much.. Most people who work there live in or near Mansfield. They've put unqualified people in management positions. Glenn micromanages the company as if it's still ran by 50 people. If you're in the technical department, it's a day-by-day job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running the company by fear. Hire qualified personnel and let them run the company.

    I worked at Mouser Electronics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are none that I can think of. Other than the shirts that you pay for & get to wear.

    Cons

    You have to stand your whole shift. Not for me as they love to micro manage. Bonuses suck as we were told during training that bonuses are $15.00, not worth my time. Medical insurance is not good. They are always hiring because they have a big turnover rate. Employees there are very unhappy & they do not hesitate to let you know.

    Advice to Management

    Need better wages, benefits, and treat employees better.

    Pros

    Wonderful company with many benefits.

    Cons

    Be careful of training. When the group of hirees I was part of was trained, Mouser was in process of hiring a trainer to train employees. Therefore, my group was trained by different people of different departments. We would get conflicting education very often which led to my group of being let go due to not being able to fulfill job duties within probation period. The group after mine was trained by a new trainer for the trainer position and they are all still there. It was an unfair assessment the department management performed. My group began training in April 2016 and all let go by August 2016.

    When trying to schedule a day off and there are already certain people off and won't be able to take off. Also pay is not that great.

    I worked at Mouser Electronics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job is pretty easy and the pay is not terrible if this is your first job or you still live at home. Co workers are pretty cool.

    Cons

    .25 cent raises, only 3 holidays off a year, mandatory 10hr days, crappy bonuses. Don't expect to make any kind of decent money in any warehouse position unless you're a supervisor or manager. Cross training in various departments adds a lot of workload with no extra pay. THIS IS NOT THE TYPE OF JOB THAT YOU CAN MAKE CAREER OUT OF. I'd recommend this job for kids fresh out of high school or someone that is in between jobs. Warehouse management and warehouse HR is pretty useless if you ever need help with anything.

    Advice to Management

    Give warehouse workers more holidays, better raises/bonuses/incentives so they can be more productive. Hire new late shift supervisors that can actually motivate order pullers. Team talk was probably the worst part of the day. Appreciate the workers that put in extra hours and stop adding mandatory 10hr shifts. Angry employees are not very productive.

    Pros

    Isolated work environment, work at your own pace

    Cons

    No ability to advance your career, no professional development or attempt to teach new skills to employees, barely above minimum wage pay for college graduate work

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate talent you've got, a lot of workers are sitting dormant with great ideas, management seems unwilling to listen to them
