The scheduling is flexible and provides a competitive health, retirement, and vacation package even for part-time workers."

"I've worked at Grainger for nearly 14 years and have had many opportunities to grow as a finance professional. The company is in the MRO distribution business with approximately 20K employees worldwide and $12B in annual revenue. I have supported senior leaders in the organization and led the finance organization for one of its international subsidiaries. It will be hard to leave after so many years of service but am ready my next opportunity to continue on in my career."

"It was a good company, but management was poor. There is a lot of opportunity if the management is strong, but in this case, working in the Buffalo/Rochester/Erie district it was not. Coleen Lacina, the territorial manager will make your life a living hell for no reason, even if your numbers are fine."

"Company has excellent benefits. They are going through reorganizations trying to reduce operating expenses. So they have been doing restructuring including lay offs. They are moving positions to other counties like Panama to save cost. They are also looking at out sourcing positions to eliminate internal staff."

Account Manager
in West Sacramento, CA

"Regarding the reviews about setting you up to fail... especially to those who make PC or AA, I totally disagree. Some sellers make PC or AA by way of an account project, new corporate agreement, or alignment change. They miss goal the following year. They also have 1 or 2 high growth accounts, a ton of bleeders, no real growth plan, and have very little in their pipeline. They set themselves up to fail. Period. Grainger is #1 and outpacing the competition. Great company overall."
