    I have been working at Sonepar USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People come first and many opportunities are available. There is a focus on education and career pathing. Good pay and benefits. At least half the growth comes organically which creates opportunity for personal advancement.

    Cons

    Although the business is in much of the US, currently there are no operating companies in much of the Midwest for people who want to work in that part of the country.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in education to develop the associates

    Pros

    Great benefits, flex schedule options, casual attire, nice building, covered parking, understanding and friendly Mgt and others. Higher ups keep everyone informed with everything on the company.

    Cons

    Waiting 2 yrs for a raise, sometimes have to wait to be able to learn a new aspect of the job. Doesn't go in order of how long you been here and since everyone does not do start to finish in AP, it makes it hard to get ahead and gain more experience. Because of the high volume, it's broken down into groups who handle certain parts. Also with extra workload that keeps being added on makes it stressful to get things done sometimes. Kind of robotic doing the same thing all day every day.

    Pros

    When I came to Sonepar USA 17 years ago it was a place that I could help build, hire staff, mentor, coach and make a difference. I often ask myself what I enjoy most about my life or my career. I always revert back to the fact that I feel as though I have made a difference and contributed to helping people on a personal and professional level.

    Cons

    - We struggle a bit at transforming our company and maintaining our small company feel.
