    I worked at Mouser Electronics (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management's "big picture" was included with explanations for goals and quotas. Wonderful support of the management team.
    My dept. had a very family-like atmosphere - we all helped and supported each other and other depts. when needed.

    Cons

    Silly meetings - basically time wasting meetings for awards, etc. that didn't relate to my department and took away valuable time I could have used to meet my daily quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the silly meetings - basically, the same people get these awards over and over again. Please note that most people don't really care about these awards nor do they find them inspirational.

    Pros

    I worked at Mouser for 5 years. This company has an amazing management crew. Though it is a big company the feeling of family is still a definition that comes to mind when I think of Mouser. Each person has a servants heart and values the opinion of the customers while always practicing the customer service value that the customer is always right. Wonderful people to work with and a great company to work for.

    Cons

    The pay is a bit low in comparison to the competition in the field, however the culture of Mouser definitely offsets that.

    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 have been working at Mouser Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Free Tshirts almost every three months , that's about it.

    Cons

    After they hire you as level 1 order puller (pulling about 8 to 10 an hour ) , shortly after that (about two months later ) ,they start pressuring you to pull more orders (about 18 to 20 an hour ) to become level 2, and if you don't , the supervisors start giving you bad weekly reports , which are not accurate because the managers manipulate the numbers to promote the employees of their choice . Some employees get moved around to different departments a lot, while others stay in one place, usually the ones that are favorite to the managers . Almost every other pick has especial Date Code requirement or you need to combine different boxes or you need to package the order in a special way , which makes it impossible to meet their quota .

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone as equal and be fair . Because if you don't , what's being done in the dark will eventually come to the light .
