Great workpalce culture and advancement opportunities
Marketing Manager (Current Employee), Glenview, IllinoisNovember 6, 2012
Pros: workplace culture, career advancement, market leader, new technologies
Cons: holidays
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

Productive and Fun workplace
Warehouse Operative / Store Assistant (Former Employee), RotherhamSeptember 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

Productive workplace with great learning resources
Inside Sales (Former Employee), Sydney, NSWAugust 2, 2012
In my time at Anixter I was exposed to many different aspects of the business, which help tremendously in overall knowledge of the companies role in the sales channel. I began by helping with administrative work, but quickly began working with large accounts trying to win upcoming projects. Anixter, being an IT distributer, allowed you to work closely – more... with both the manufacturers and contracters, giving you much better perspective of the functionality of the products and services Anixter provided. – less

Customer Service Rep.
Customer Service (Current Employee), Reno, NVJune 25, 2012
Pros: free coffee, day flies by
Cons: this work requires you to be at your desk for the full 8 hour shift. stress
On a typical day I personally receive 80+ telephone calls from sales persons throughout the entire United States. Calls from, help me place an order, to my material has been lost in transit, or wasn't delivered on time, to material was damaged in transit. At this point I contact the warehouse to inform them, call and inquire with the carrier about the – more... product being shipped.

Very fast paced/multitasking.

Company themselves is very good.

For being the national call center for the entire United States/Canada/Mexico, the call center is understaffed and the employees are spread too thin with other duties. – less
