    Pros

    Benefits, a paycheck and lots overtime. Not much else. Pie and food leftovers (if you like scraps like a raccoon. )

    Cons

    Bias management, unfair work load, old guys don’t work hard so you must do more to compensate. Racial politics. Almost all workers are Mexican and so is manager, so be that.

    Advice to Management

    Phase out the older guys , 55 60 65 loading trucks...? Laughable

    I worked at Waxie Sanitary Supply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A paycheck, basic health benefits, and PTO. I did however meet some great Co-Workers whom I’ll be friends with for years to come.

    Cons

    Horrible training for new hires, handcuffed to the past, old industry. They claim that you can make a “ton” of money, but it’s all favoritism. They set the “chosen” people up for success by handing them a base of accounts, and then others are given nothing and expected to crush it.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp everything. Starting with new sales management, they are awful, and just riding the wave until they retire.

  8. "Steeped in tradition"

    Cons

    Slow to adapt and not ideal for those that do not fit their traditional mold.

    Encourage new ideas especially from employees on the front lines

    I worked at Waxie Sanitary Supply full-time

    Pros

    Everyone cares about everyone from the CEO to the team leaders. CEO makes a point of visiting each branch at least once a year and talking to employees on a personal level. Training is offered at their main location in California which shows how much they care about helping each employee perform to their high ability. They have preferred hiring within the company and are always open to employees that want to move up or move to a different department or location. They offer benefits and 401k to full time employees.

    Cons

    No big cons about the company as a whole that I can think about about. It is genuinely a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very hands-on and always accessible. I think Waxie makes a point of making each employee feel like they are important and have a voice.
