    I have been working at SupplyOne full-time

    Pros

    Many outstanding, extremely nice committed people to work with; very customer focused;

    Cons

    Little appreciation for the hard work required of EVERYONE for a company to excel, Unsure what they want to be when they grow up; old school set in their ways - business has changed since 1970. Profess decentralized culture but the truth is completely different.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good people and give them the responsibility and AUTHORITY to succeed. Reward success and don't let failures linger.

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

    Pros

    SupplyOne offers unique benefits to their customers by being both manufacturer and distributor. There are many tools for the sales team to utilize in order to grow their business. They seem to hire people that genuinely want to help grow the business. If I have an equipment or material question, there are teams of people in place to help me learn.

    Cons

    May take some getting used to their way of selling if you are used to working for strictly a distributor or strictly a manufacturer. I would like to add here, that I am surprised at the overall score of this company on glassdoor. If you are interviewing with SupplyOne, please understand that they are decentralized. This is a very good thing. But know that a negative experience at one location does NOT mean the same will happen to you at another location. If you have been contacted for an interview-check out that location and decide for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that each location takes some time with new sales hires. Because of the unique way that SupplyOne does business, many sales people cannot relate initially. They may want to conduct business in a manner like they did before. Invest in new hires by introducing them to all resources available and help them understand how and why SupplyOne succeeds in their market.

  3. "Sales Associate"

    Pros

    Good product offering and nice people to work with. People are very knowledgeable. Good geographic coverage. Competitive pricing. Smart people at the top.

    Cons

    Poor conceived one source supply concept. It is very difficult to get a company to release all of its data. The customer must be very trusting in a non-trusting commodity industry.

    Advice to Management

    None


  4. "Little chance for advancement"

    I have been working at SupplyOne full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Corporately, SupplyOne has great programs and potential for success. They are focused on rapid growth within the packaging industry which creates great opportunities for employees.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and consistency at Wisconsin location. One week there is a plan, the next week there's a completely new plan. A lot of talk but no action or direction. It's hard to move a ship if everyone is rowing in a different direction. Employees have lost the can do attitude and the negative morale is draining.

    Advice to Management

    Be present. Return emails and phone calls. Take issues seriously. Hold employees accountable. Set goals and a proper plan to achieve the goals and stick to the plan. Eliminate favoritism within the office.

    I worked at SupplyOne full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy Work
    Expectations are low for lower employees/management

    Cons

    Employees are simply a number on a page to the offsite managers.
    Employees are never given an opportunity to showcase any strengths as the upper management will take credit for all advantageous work done.
    Upper management have little or no desire to improve the company, only to collect a paycheck, which often provided a depressing and bleak work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your middle management and salesman before your company is no longer relevant in it's field. Middle management was a joke and never did anything that didn't allow for some type of personal gain.

    Pros

    The people who work there are great to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the facilities still have the old school mentality in management so it's hard to use newer technologies for an easier work life.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a training program for the employees.

    I worked at SupplyOne (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was close to my house.

    Cons

    I was promised that I would be hired permanently as (a new position) Chief of Sanitation, but after working ten months as a temporary worker, the managers could not find someone to properly run the machines (the former employee passed away), so they laid off all new workers.

    Advice to Management

    They should have job rotations, so if someone is not there other people will still be able to run the machines correctly.

    Pros

    Nationwide footprint - although this is not utilized to its fullest potential.

    Cons

    This company focusing on the minutia rather than the big picture. It stifles growth.
