    Pros

    The people are willing to add their skills and grow the company. The enthusiasm is strong and the challenges are real.

    Cons

    The new owners, Builders first source, don't see the need for this new technology called the internet, are regressing the company back to typewriters, fax machines and rotary telephones. They won't see this review.

    Advice to Management

    Retire the senior management and let their grandchildren take over already.

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

    Pros

    Overtime, and a lot of it. You work hard and in a fast paced environment. Your doing a lot of mindless work and repeative motion.

    Cons

    Loading and unloading bulk materials. Unorganized and multiple communication problems! Temps are onsite. Lots of people don't care about their responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with strong skill sets and a drive to work and ideas to change processes for the better. Instead of having the mindset of this is how we have always done it. Better equipment and tools to do the job would help as well. People work as hard as they are compensated.

    It is a good opportunity to learn new skills in Accounts Receivables.

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

    Pros

    Work is generally pretty easy. Plenty of tenured people there that are willing and capable to help with almpst all accounting tasks. Very flexible with hours depending on manager.

    Cons

    No room to grow. Below average salary and raises and bonuses are nothing. If you are looking for a company where you can move up in the company, look elsewhere. Several (but not all) managers do are difficult to work with. Very aloof.
    The benefits are not good either.
    Nothing to do during the month. EOM is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. Without your accounting team, you would be lost.

    Pros

    Good pay, with shift differential thrown in.

    Cons

    Said there would be lots of overtime.. except there isn't when they have people not come in mid-week because they don't have enough wood cut.. but then everyone has to work Saturdays instead! was barely getting in 40 hours. Quotas are ridiculously high and they fire people every week for not meeting them, some people only get a week to prove they can perform up to pa.. others a few weeks or months, but they have no reservations about letting people go without offering ot help them improve

    Advice to Management

    how about work with those people you have to increase their production, or LOWER your standards to a safe level. the only way to meet the quotas was to work so fast that people were constantly hurting themselves and messing up the measurements. Quality OVER Quantity.

    Pros

    Work week Monday thru Friday...all holidays off and coworkers are awesome. Clean building and yard.

    Cons

    Management is inexperienced. Care more about your appearance than what you know and they will hire anyone even if they have no experience

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't take them for granted. It's a lumber yard. Let them dress like they fit in with their customers rather than a business office setting.
