    Pros

    Free lunch here and there, 40+ hours a week, laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Major political game going on in there, non stop gossip , management scared to assist employees based on the backlash they may receive ,no room for advancement they will only hire from outside. Very childish behavior from supervisors and managers so you either play dumb or voice your opinion and be made a target. Processes, system and basically everything in the warehouse is outdated and breaking down . No rasises, no bonuses or anything to look forward to. Working atmosphere was laid back but also negative and hostile.

    Pros

    Very solid company as they deal with electrical, chemical, and metal parts. Very diversified and is growing. Also typically have profit sharing with employees.

    Cons

    They are in the middle of going public as a company which involves many different new processes and working in different ways.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a much more solid Supplier Quality group working on resolving problems before they reach the Wesco warehouses.

    I have been working at Wesco Aircraft Hardware (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are friendly, work environment is good, if you don't mind a cubicle. Supervisors listen and care, and try to provide you with all the tools and information you need to do your job. Bosses are great actually. Health benefits are very generous in my opinion. Working from home is a possibility on occasion.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of upward mobility. After a promotion or two, you've reached the top of your potential in your department, unless you want to wait until your supervisor leaves and take their place. Though that isn't likely.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    No breaks, Applied volunteered shift changes on a whim. Destructive culture. Gossip...etc.

    Advice to Management

    Put our personal first before profit. Listen to your first level responders that deal with customers and vendors. Stop using cliches for answers. Stop forcing the 'too smart' people into resigning
