    I worked at ProBuild full-time

    Pros

    When I started working for probuild I didn't know what to expect, but after meeting the staff and the plant workers, it turned out to be a good company.

    Cons

    It seemed to me that the last run of probuild benefits, prior to being bought out and taken over by builders first source were structured by the company to benefit those within the upper echelon rather than those that really needed good benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people that make up the majority of people in the company and stop being hypocritical when it comes to notice of termination vs quitting.

    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.

    I worked at ProBuild full-time

    Pros

    The only good thing about this company is you get benefits and 401 K.

    Cons

    Dixieline Lumber Co. is a very unprofessional place to work. You are basically just a number to them. There computer system is from 1913. The Managements lack of communication, and the lack of training employees correctly is the reason why I no longer work there anymore. There's a lot of favoritism and I can see why there is a very high turn over.

    Advice to Management

    More like ADVICE to the CEO of Probuild. PAY ATTENTION to whats going on in your Company. CHANGE your management Immediately. MANAGEMENT is the reason why your stores are closing down.
