Wesco Distribution Employee
in West Chester, PA

"This company has a very high turnover rate. You will have to create 500 purchase orders or more a month in order to stay on top of things. There is no management support and everyone who works are unhappy and looking to find new employment. You are trained on a system that they created and they expect you to hit the ground running. The two women who run the department are bullies and will use the team leads against you to get you out of the door. This is a highly stressful environment and everyone there is looking to get out. Just look at how often the job for Buyer is posted and that will answer your questions. They will accept just about anybody just to fill in the seat. it is a dead end job that pays $42,000 annually. Trust me, you may need a job but you can do better somewhere else. You don't want to work for bullies.."

"No overtime allowed, ever. They will deduct overtime off your time sheet and dare you to complain about it. Medical insurance is below average for a company that employs over 7,000 people. Very oppressive company to work for. Big brother is always watching."

"I've been a Warehouse Manager for 8 months and I'm only getting paid $25,000 yr. I'm reading that I should be getting $32,000. When I ask I get the run around... We are in the process. Well I'M not in the process of doing the job. I feel like I'm being taken advantage up and am very disappointed. I've been with this company almost 5 years."
