Order Picker (Former Employee), Alsip, IL – March 14, 2013
Pros: interactive management. good compensation for what the job actually is.
Cons: such high turn over and constant changes the old saying was everyone gets fired from anixter.
Anixter was a pretty good job that allowed me to learn a lot and advance pretty quickly. However they don't always give everyone such an opportunity and often an employee is let go before much if any effort was put into help making the employee successful. Management and supervisors rely on other employee's to train new hires and never really judge – more... bad performance on having a good trainer. So some unlucky people get poor training and just don't make the cut.
Over all though the place was pretty good to me while I worked there and I learned a lot about how a distribution center runs. I guess I was lucky. – less

Great workpalce culture and advancement opportunities
Marketing Manager (Current Employee), Glenview, Illinois – November 6, 2012
Pros: workplace culture, career advancement, market leader, new technologies
Product Managers are given autonomy and empowerment to manage and promote their product portfolios (relating to technical solutions for wire, cable, security, and data centers). Workplace culture is very dynamic and encourages interpersonal communication (no working out of the house and few conference calls). Glenview is corporate HQ for F500 company – more... with a professional, polished, driven, yet relaxed culture. Many career opportunities exist for advancement and are given based on experience and results, not tenure. The compensation is above average for a B2B Industrial organization. Only area of improvement might be more holidays. Healthcare benefits are good, but expensive. – less
Warehouse Operative / Store Assistant (Former Employee), Rotherham – September 6, 2012
Mornings would usually come in and print off any lines that needed picking, and get straight to it. finding the locations and then picking, measuring/weighing the item, and then packing it and labeling. Some jobs used BIN systems which meant that their were many items going to the same place so a pallet would be used and boxes labelled to specific parts – more... of the delivery. Then in the afternoon, there might be some goods inward to locate and put away in the correct location. throughout the day deliveries would be being made and being picked up. sometimes having to sign for a delivery. If I had any questions about the locations of any items or anything like that I could quite easily ask any of my coworkers or management team. Everyone I worked with was very helpful and friendly towards me and hopefully they felt the same towards myself. – less
