    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.

    I worked at Walters Wholesale Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Walters treats there employees very well with great benefits and there is always room for advancement and moving around the Co. is easy when there is a job opening at another branch or division anyone can apply for that particular job and they pay well. Compared to similar industries Walters seems to pay pretty well and the employees seem to stay a long time. We have a lot of employees here at Walters over 25 years.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons to speak of.

    I worked at Walters Wholesale Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They offer family type atmosphere, competitive pay, great benefits and plenty of opportunities to advance your career.

    Cons

    Only con I could really think of, is that sometimes it's hard to transfer locations to be closer to home.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to get a bit more involved with employees and ask for suggestions. Employees know what is needed to run more efficiently.
