    I worked at One Source Distributors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only pros are the customers themselves and the opportunity to grow as an employee because you will be faced with a lot of pressure. If you survive it will make you strong.

    Cons

    The new owners (One Source) came in and made us sign a non-competition contract for five years if you wanted to keep your job. They then turned around and cut out commission making you the only ones in the industry without it. They run it like the federal government promoting the deadbeats and enslaving the ones who actually do the work.

    Advice to Management

    You have to be in touch with your customers. It's not all about numbers, it's about trust and being their partner.

    Pros

    There are no goo reasons to work for this company. They base everything they do on whether or not the president of the company likes you or not.

    Cons

    No raises
    No praise
    No management done in fairness of job performance
    Termination of employees using bad judgment

    I have been working at One Source Distributors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A good place to get entry level sales experience and then move on if your still motivated. Growth strategy is by acquisition.

    Cons

    Several top notch employees resigned within past year. A lot of employees/managers complacent and unmotivated. Lack of structure for advancement path. No raises at all unless your manager begs senior management on your behalf. Division between Operations and Sales people. Archaic IT system maintained by remote offsite employees. Company still going through changes as a result of being bought by Sonepar. Too many employees hired based on friend/relative working at company.

    Advice to Management

    Time to make serious changes to the management team.

    Pros

    Great people, great environment, lots of work

    Cons

    Way too many managers, no career advancement & when you do advance pay raise is nothing special. Huge disparity in wages for the same job. No communication from management

    Advice to Management

    Lose all the managers, give raises frequently & let your people know what is going on. Don't let good employees go and keep the bad lazy apples

    Pros

    It is one of the tops in the industry, and provides a great service to those top customers.

    Cons

    There is no clear path of advancement, and difficult to move up.

    I worked at One Source Distributors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was given the opportunity to work in several different departments, gained a lot of experience in different aspects of business that I wouldn't have learned anywhere else. Company made efforts to give people new positions if/when they were burned out and needed a change.

    Cons

    Company had serious growth strategy at a breakneck pace. Was impressive, but culture suffered.

    Advice to Management

    Move from ambiguous profit sharing to individual performance reviews and raises based on merit. People need acknowledgement when they do well, and constructive criticism when they are struggling. If you're not concerned about employee retention than don't be afraid to take the time to give employees honest feedback.
