    I worked at United Hardware Distributing (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with that help you learn your job since there is no on board training. Busy with lots to do which fills your day.

    Cons

    Employees are not happy because they are asked to do more than expected than job indicates. Pay does not equal workload. Turn over of jobs says enough. Not fun to work when you can't talk or enjoy a laugh every now and again. No communication from the top management. No rewards, or recognition or even a thank you.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to invest in their people and treat them better. Company does not care about the morale.

    I have been working at United Hardware Distributing full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Many hard working employees that care about what they do.

    Cons

    The company hires incompetent people with little or no education to keep the pay low. They are cheap beyond words. Employees work under fear of losing their jobs, overall atmosphere is a cesspool of low moral. The launch of a new computer system is doubling the work of every employee. Management does not what to hear any negativity. There is an attitude if you don't like it, there is the door. Many unhappy customers, vendors, and employees because of a botched system launch.

    Advice to Management

    Management is blind to the hard working employees they have. Listen to your employees and hear what they have to say instead of sticking your head in the sand. Spend money on worker bees instead of management. The board is just as bad, they are being told what they want to hear by upper management and don't hold accountable. Start asking the right questions to figure out what exactly what is going on.

    I worked at United Hardware Distributing full-time

    Pros

    Employees are wonderful, abused, but wonderful.

    Cons

    Inept and incompetent senior management. Dealers are treated poorly and disrespectfully - the Emperor is certainly naked...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your exit interviews - build collaboration from all tiers of employees and first listen to the needs of your dealers. Find new blood for your IT Department and bring in a President that can lead and learn.
