    I have been working at WESCO International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seems like a great company to work for. Talking to someone that has been there for almost 30yrs. Laid back. Just show up and do what needs to be done. The one I work for only has like 7-8 people total. Looking to add on or find a bigger building due to work load. $2.2m last month.
    Get hired on and automatically get 3-weeks pto. Don't know anywhere else like that.

    Cons

    As far as the warehouse goes. It could use some changing up a little.

    Advice to Management

    Take input from the warehouse employees and find a way for it to be more efficient.

    Pros

    Managers did not hover, gave you space to work and gave amble opportunity to learn

    Cons

    Every employee was trained differently. No uniformed way of processing any orders/quoting/sourcing. stingy with raises.

    Advice to Management

    Create a training department for new employees and explain why things need to be done in a certain way.

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

    Pros

    Paid time off and work life balance is really the best part about working for WESCO. Generous 3 weeks starting with floating holidays as well. Health benefits aren't terrible.

    Cons

    The company pays terribly and rarely promotes from within. There is no room for upward mobility and if you work hard, they continue to throw more and more work your way. This is, while slackers are allowed to keep slacking. Not to mention that you do the SAME THING EVERY DAY. Quite frankly, this makes work boring and me as an employee lose interest. The company also really needs to evaluate some of those individuals in management/key leadership positions because many are either not qualified or are terrible leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Promote more often, and make them actually feel valued. Your going to keeping losing more and more talented people if you continue to operate the same way.
