Great way to enter and learn an industry, but not a place to stay too long

Sonepar is a good company. Its success and growth have been increasing dramatically - growth in the states It's pretty amazing to see, and honestly, pretty fun to be a part of.
That said, you have to be careful that you don't stop learning. The environment is fairly one dimensional, so it's pretty easy to be forgotten about. If things stop getting challenging, you're staying there too long. For most people, this happens in about 2 and a half to 4 years. By then, you'll learn everything you can about the company. I say this as a caveat to anyone looking to apply.
Sonepar is a great company and worth applying to. It has a lot to offer to people with not much experience, but it's important to know that it won't take long for you to want to take the experience and move elsewhere
Pretty good work environment, co-workers become your friends, health care benefits are good, frequent cater lunches
As the company gains so many users, it corporate model continue to be a bigger issue, new positions/structural changes seem a little arbitrary
