its good place to work but...
Product Handler (Former Employee), Modesto, CAAugust 6, 2014
Pros: weekends off, very laid back people, rarely get terminated
Cons: low hourly wage pay, hard for advancement, part time forever
I'd say this place is a great place to gain experience in a warehouse environment, and also the people here are very laid back, and very helpful to, but other than that the pay is not really good, if your getting a position that's not a manager, technician or a driver position, you don't get full time, its a part time forever position and its pretty – more... hard to get a full time position there to. If your looking for a job to gain experience in this is the right place for you, but other than that, its pretty difficult to make a career there. – less

Outside Sales Associate (Current Employee), Gardner, KSAugust 5, 2014
A typical day at work I spend invoicing, quoting, inventory management for customer locations and the store, and also bringing new business to the company. As an outside sales you have to keep constant customer contact with a very wide variety of customers and present new options for better business. At times you will have to do collections on account – more... to receive payments, you will have to source products from vendors all over the country, perform logistics tracking, and submit purchase orders. – less

Awsome company with a lot of growth
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee), Columbus, GAJuly 21, 2014
I had a great manager at the store level. Learned a ton about the products the company carries and they are very big on training and safety. My experience with the district level management, if you like to play golf and hit the bars regularly you will probably go far. You need to fit in. To spite the cons It was a great company to work for.

Look elsewhere
General Manager (Former Employee), FloridaJuly 17, 2014
Pros: customer interactions, helping customers
Cons: overworked underpaid leadership
This company is not loyal to their employees. District managers are unethical. Ive experience and seen discrimination against hiring women. This may have been in just my area. I cant speak for the company as a whole. But leadership needs to be replaced. Everyone from corporate to the hubs refuse to accept responsibility for their mistakes and leave – more... you to deal with the customer. – less

Productive, Self motivated fast pace work enviornment
Sales (Current Employee), ALABAMAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: great training, possibility to make great money.
Cons: some days have short breaks, sometimes stressful environment, regularly work over 45 hours weekly.
On average I work about 50 hours a week. Very fast pace work environment. A store will succeed if one has a good general manager and all employees work together. An individual will succeed if they are confident and self motivated. If there is any employee clash it is usually obvious and can hurt sales significantly. The hardest part of the job would – more... be keeping inventory correct and training people correctly to get the job done right the first time. The most enjoyable part of the job is customer interaction. You really get to go out and see industry and how everything works. This job offers good sales/life skills to apply in future positions. – less

Not bad until hours were cut
Sales Associate (Former Employee), McDonough, GAJuly 14, 2014
This company used to have a good program to move up. I started out part time and was expecting to move up. The cut part timers hours across the board for the slow season, but then didn't increase them. The district manager was closed minded and said I wouldn't make it in sales. At that point, I decided to move on because I knew he wouldn't promote me.

General Warehouse Laborer (Current Employee), Winona, MNJuly 4, 2014
Pros: compensates pretty well
Cons: certain jobs are rough on body
Great place for a high school or college student to work part time. For the most part you will be given one or two different jobs that you will do daily that are pretty easy to do. Most of the employees there are very friendly and outgoing.

Laborer and Picker (Former Employee), Modesto, CAJuly 2, 2014
Management and coworkers were extremely friendly and very competent. Management worked around my military schedule and even accommodated working extra hours in lieu of taking a day off. Greatest part of the job was when management posted how fast you picked; I liked seeing how many items I picked per hour.
