    I worked at Stellar Industrial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment with great people who are focused on team-work efficiency to provide the highest level of service to their customer base.

    Cons

    Antiquated computer operating system. Old warehouse equipment. Each branch has it's own processes and procedures, so the results in most cases are marginalized. Everyone on the same processes and procedures promotes greater over-all efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline all processes by all branches following the same procedures and processes will increase your over-all company-wide efficiency of operations and cost-control.

    I worked at Stellar Industrial (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Location was great, drive was amazing, meet some great people.

    Cons

    No training provided on how to do anything! No manuals. You had to learn buy trial and error.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a Detailed TRAINING MANUAL. NEEDS To be a Bible. This is a must!

    Pros

    Good culture and have made strategic business partnerships that have been helpful with their growth and account penetration abilities.

    Cons

    Growth via acquisitions of competitors has put a burden on financial numbers and commitment levels made to the board of directors which resulted in good quality employees being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Remain focused on where the company started. Small family atmosphere and a strong belief in your employees. Growth is obviously important to market share but so is the entire team as a whole.

    "Good Luck, You"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    It is a steady Paycheck with health insurance, 401k and other benefits. The price of Health insurance is very low.

    Cons

    If you are not related to someone, friends or family friends you will be left to flounder and figure things out on your own. Don't trust anyone. People will smile in your face while jabbing a knife in your back. The only employees who are deemed relevant are executives and sales people. Everyone else is under appreciated, under paid pond.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create cultural consistency among all branches. Nepotism will hurt you in the long term Stop allowing sales to be puppet master.

    Pros

    Some branches have good people to work with. The management has tried to keep as many employees as possible through the tough times. They are trying to be aggressive in the market.

    Cons

    Just now getting back into the black. The upper management was too bloated and now that many are gone, they want to look elsewhere for blame. Stupid inventory management and a CEO that tries to get blood from his turnip sales staff makes for a stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take some responsibility for poor management decisions. Work with your sales staff rather than against it. Keep upper management small.
