Worst Management
Material Handler (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJuly 28, 2014
Honestly it was like high school working here. I worked at the warehouse in Richmond VA and it was terrible. The warehouse manager was very rude to all of the employees. He went as far as asking one of the guys I worked with if he was blind or just dumb. We had human resources in the warehouse every other month because of something the manager said – more... or did. Employees would come to work drunk and would sleep on a desk and others would just not do their job at all. I was fired for using sick days and vacation time when my family was going through a rough time. This is a company that I will never work for again and I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. I have no bad feelings towards this place I just want to give everyone a heads up. – less

Fun atmospher depending on your personality
Manual Laborer (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 9, 2014
Pros: good hours 930-630. awesome people to work with. management is really fun and easy going
Cons: it can get hot in the warehouse, some employees dont pull their share, if busy have to work long days
I worked in the warehouse. Time went fast and the people were fun to work with. Management was never on your back unless you didn't do your work. The daily tasks would get a little boring at times but overall was not bad. I would recommend working at Graybar.

productive and sometimes fun
material handler (Current Employee), austell gaMay 15, 2014
it's a great job to start off with if you are looking to move up, 401k, employee stock ownership, advancement opportunities. typical day as material handler you come in and get on a machine to stock or pull material off shelves, at the end of the night help wrap things up. The other employees / Management team are pretty easy to work with. hardest part – more... is having to stand on a machine all day. The most enjoyable is that it can be a fun job, it is what you make of it and as long as you are good at what you do and have fun while being safe, your time there will be an enjoyable experience – less

Great company, poor local management
Material Handler (Former Employee), Sparks, NVFebruary 24, 2014
Graybar is a great company. Their quality and service to the customer was excellent. Local management lacked appreciation for the efforts of their employees.

I enjoyed working with most customers, but found it difficult to deal with some management personell.

Quotation Specialist (Former Employee), Portland, ORFebruary 21, 2014
Management problems in understanding needs of employees on the upper levels. I have always been friendly and helpful to my co-workers. The hardest part of my job was not able to give services
that I know my customers needed due to management regulations. I really enjoy meeting customers, architects, engineers, contractors and designer in all fields. – more... I have a very solid relationship with them and I am well known and repected in this community. – less
