    I have been working at Waxie Sanitary Supply (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Family owned and operated company with direct access to Executive level management.
    *Many employees in Senior/Executive level positions worked their way up into their roles, very inspiring to see the potential of growth from within.
    *Definitely don't feel like a number- people are valued.
    *Employee of the Quarter rallies celebrate milestones, successes and include everyone in the company, rewarding them for various reasons.
    *Great culture with fun events occurring regularly: BBQ's, Costume Contests, Birthday Celebrations, Happy Hours, Conferences and more.
    *Lots of tenured staff- not a whole lot of turnover.

    Cons

    Benefits can be on the pricey side.

    Advice to Management

    Change can be difficult for some of the tenured staff- but we definitely need to continue to push for it in order to have an edge in the market.

    I worked at Waxie Sanitary Supply full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work. Good work life balance. Family oriented company.

    Cons

    Pay is not good for this industry, raises each year are horrendous. Lots of micro management. Management always complains about overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the hard working drivers what they are worth. Minimum wage is rising! Competitive pay is everything.

    Pros

    You feel like you are apart of the family. Great benefits and wonderful people work there. Low turnover. Management is great about work life balance.

    Seniority is a big thing there; years in the family (not skills) mean promotions

    Pros

    Working at Waxie is like being part of an awesome, tight knit family; with outstanding leadership, benefits, growth opportunities, and people that care for each other, not just the bottom line.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a boring job that does not challenge you; don't apply at Waxie.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and keep doing what has been so successful for over 70 years! I have never worked for a finer company or group of individuals.

    Pros

    I just celebrated my 20th year working for this great family owned company! I have been blessed by the owners and leaders on numerous occasions.

    Cons

    my division has 3 shifts so something is always happening and I am never truly "off-work". This is more of a reflection of my position.

    Advice to Management

    continue to recognize every employee's importance to the success of the company.
