    I have been working at ScanSource full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working with Scansource for a little over a year now. Honestly I believe this is a great company. Scansource is a people company, they care about their employees as well as their customers. The management team works hard on contentious improvement throughout our DC. Most of the employees I have spoken too love it here.

    I started here part time in June 2016, only worked 4 hours a day. During that time I got to meet most everyone that worked here. I found that so many of the employees had been here 5,10 and even 20 years. Also we have a few employees ages 65 through about 72 . They could retire anytime they want but they told me they liked working here. The two factors that helped me make a decision to convert to fulltime were the amount of time employees have been with the company and the ages of some that keep working because they like it here. I think it says a lot of good about a company that's able to retain employees as long as they have.

    Cons

    The only con for myself personally is having to work 2nd shift and I am missing a lot of family time with my wife and children. Although I do understand it is because it is part of the business model be that we are same day shipper's.

    Pros

    Great bonus structure, 401k, and stock retention program.
    Management truly cared about my success as an employee and wants to give you the flexibility to not just move around, but up. They consistently ask what your goals are for your career and life, and they work to give you the tools necessary to make that goal achievable. You'll love the face paced culture and "win together, play together" environment.
    I felt like I was able to make an impact in the relationships that I managed, the business that I ran, and community that we as a company gave back to. I felt fulfilled working here.
    I was truly sad to leave such an amazing job and group of friends, but I had other family commitments take me out of the city.

    Cons

    Looking back, there were no con's during my employment at ScanSource.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Empower employees and continue making an impact!
