    Pros

    Great place to work, manager is excellent leader and open for any realistic suggestions! I have been in the industry for 20 years, and am used to having to "go get my check" so I think anyone beginning this position with the thought that, the customers come to you, is not going to make it!

    Cons

    none so far, like I said up top, you get back what you put in!

    Advice to Management

    push for more funding to upgrade the restrooms, if your going to sell these products you should probably use them??

    Pros

    Fellow employess are an asset and very reliable

    Cons

    When Probuild buys out failing companies that are failing, we tend to get rid of great Probuild employees and replace them with the faililng company employees that we just purchased.

    Advice to Management

    Probuild employees are dedicated, keep them around. Get rid of raises and move towards COLAs.

    I have been working at ProBuild full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The good work environment is one of the best reasons I have for working here. Employees to employees and customer to employee relationships are for the most part friendly and productive, making for a fun and relaxed work culture. Local management is good, they look out for their employees, encourage them to advance, and are well liked even by the few employees that don't like each other.

    Cons

    Intense workload in the summer months, time difference from AK to the Lower 48(for special orders), vague job duties/descriptions(within roles, i.e. cashier, inside sales I, inside sales II, receiving, inventory control)
