    Thank you for your nice comments. We appreciate them.

    While it is true that we do not have the Rockwell line in San Diego County, we do have the Siemens
    Industrial line which is very strong.

    I have been working at Walters Wholesale Electric part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The great thing about Walters Wholesale is the support from the staff, managers and the corporate team. I am looking forward to coming back as a part time employee after a year and a half of full time retirement and working with a new group of people at the Westminster branch and hopefully be able to renew some of the relationships that i previously was able to build with some of the contractors that I dealt with in the past.

    Cons

    There have been no downsides in working for Walters and look forward to coming back.

    Pros

    Family values, many growth opportunities, sincerely looks after welfare of their employees. With its positive attitude one finds it is fun to go to work everyday. Their longevity of their employees proves the quality of this company. Walters growth pattern has given their family of workers many opportunities to expand their own horizons.

    Cons

    If one is looking for advancement there are many opportunities but there are others within the company doing the same so there will be competition in many times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the attitude and focus on what John Walter has established on how this company should move forward.

    Pros

    Walter's has always had a good reputation in the industry. Great benefits and competitive pay. I enjoyed my time working for Walter's.

    Cons

    Change of ownership made a big impact. Company feel changed drastically. No longer a "family" atmosphere. Not a lot of opportunity for advancement because new owners are bringing in their own people.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the talented people you have. These people are already dedicated to making the company great.

    Pros

    There are many people with a lot of experience that are willing to help and coach. There is plenty of room for growth and the company invests in its employees. Good pay and great working environment. Upper management is very professional. You are part of a team and not treated like you are worthless. The President and VP's know everyone and acknowledge all employees.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of cons as my experience was very positive and I learned most of what i know there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing as it is obviously working.

    I do not have any cons to speak of.
