    I have been working at Sonepar USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They invest a lot in their employees; they recognize and want you to continue learning whether through their trainings or from an outside source. I've also had a mentor since I started and he has been a huge help thus far. Also, I was hired into their Sales and Operations Trainee Program right after I graduated college. Which is a year long trainee program where I am getting to work in all aspects of the business and see the industry, which has been an amazing learning experience. The fact that they are training me for an entire year proves the fact that they invest greatly in their employees and care about the succession of the company.

    Cons

    I haven't experienced any yet.

    Hello, thank you for providing feedback on the Sales & Operations Development Program! We are a family owned business, so it is important to us that we treat our associates like family. Thank you for your advice to management on tailoring the program more towards utilities, we are happy to inform you that we are currently developing a utility track to address this issue. We also encourage you to reach out to your program leader or champion to talk about different opportunities to learn more within the utility side of our business and to take on additional responsibilities. Thank you again for your feedback!

    Pros

    Sonepar demonstrates a positive work atmosphere and employees are encouraged to be creative. The Regency program is critical in developing new generation of Sonepar employees through hands on experience and overall knowledge.

    Cons

    Only difficult part about this program is having to travel and move across country. While it can be seen as a con, it allows the employee to push themselves to be successful in an unfamiliar environment.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our organization and Sales and Operations Development Program. We are glad you are finding the work environment to be positive and encouraging of creativity. Supporting our associates’ entrepreneurial spirit is one of the key values of our organization. We understand that moving to a new city can be difficult. We hope that you find comfort in knowing that many of your fellow trainees are going through similar experiences, so please lean on them for support. We encourage you to reach out to your program leader and/or supervisors at any time to discuss these transitional issues and know that they will help guide you along the way. Having said that, we’re glad to hear that you believe that taking on things that may not be as comfortable as one would like can help an individual grow for a better future.
