Pros: employee owned, profit sharing, promotion from within. coworkers were engaged and great to work with.
I worked my way up in Graybar from a Stock Clerk, to Billing Specialist, to Customer Service Rep., to Operating Manager - then accepted a transfer to Corporate in Clayton, MO as Zone Purchasing Manager, then Project Manager for Central Purchasing Pilot.
I learned so much that has assisted me - from business etiquette and computer skills, to product education and management skills.
The people were the best!
The hardest part of the job was leaving to relocate.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the challenge and education.
