Worked here for 10 months, the coworkers are amazing beyond anything else. They made the day. The customers were great to serve as well. As per my title though the management out east kills the company. HR purposely uses misleading words and will break promises made to employees and say that the situation is out of their hands.
Shady head office
Graybar management expects you to work over and beyond your scheduled hours unpaid. Sales department staff are a bunch of dinosaurs who cry if they don't get their way. Beyond fake. If you respect yourself don't apply. Nepotism at it's finest. Customer appreciation day means you don't get a break. If you are short staffed no breaks. You get a pizza👍
The drivers are nice.
Graybar has stood the test of time and is growing and expanding their markets / product offerings year over year and is 150 Years this year 2019. Great place to work and good people / products and systems in place for local and national distribution.
What a joke. I’ve noticed now they are not even giving people the false hope of having a decent long term job to progress but offering a one year contract. When you come in you will be expected to have post secondary education, warehouse experience and electrical knowledge. This is for the “entry level job” once your hired you will be doing the work of three people for and working for peanuts
Benefits from the start
I have been with Graybar for 10 years and it's been a great adventure and opportunity to learn so much about myself and my abilities as an account manager. I have been well taken care of during my time here by being promoted and sent to branches across the country to help train new hires. The best part about working for Graybar is the continuing education on new products in the growing industry by offering hands on training and product sessions with manufacturers.
A seriously understaffed business. A typical day consists of showing up to work and running around trying to do the work of 3 people and constantly being behind. After five hours with no breaks you finally get to take your one hour unpaid lunch. You miss out on those lunches when the company has a supplier bbq. You are expected to work for 9 hours straight those days and also have to help set up the bbq because they are to cheap to hire outside for those days. Expected to have post secondary and relevant experience for an entry level job and after hire will not learn much at the job. Not much opportunity for growth unless you want to stick around for years.
Benefits from start. RRSP marching.steady says with weekends off.

Free lunches, RRSP Matching, Great hours
I would arrive, sit at my desk, then proceed with my day. I would answer phone calls, transfer phone calls, file transactions, photocopy transactions, and run shipment information between the warehouse and the manager. My managers were lovely people and extremely flexible. My co-workers were a lot older than me but treated my professionally and no different than anyone else in the company. The hardest part of the job was being everywhere at once; answering the phones, making copies, filing, and handling ship information all at once. The most enjoyable part of the job was being in a professional environment, it was good preparation for my future.
Free lunch, flexible hours, expierence
It is a beautiful environment with wonderful people. My work is general where I support the warehouse in receiving, putting away, order picking and investigations.I inherited many problems and right away I started dicusing ways for improvemnet. As a result of these, a lot are left in my hands so that I continue the improvement processes. This has brought too much work load on me and hence the hardest part.I have been able to put some measures which have brought immense contributions to the processes. I enjoyed my work because the changes I effected and the new ideas have brought positive results reducing peoples frustrations. We are able to serve costumers better and all these results are felt throughout the organizations.
it's a beautiful team
