Great company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time for more than a year

ProsThey offer great benefits, you can get a consistent schedule with weekends off, Monday through Friday 7am to 5:15pm. They have dual annual reviews to help you know what you need to improve on to help with raises.

ConsThere are some people who seem to keep their jobs even though they are burned out and not working as good team members and pulling their weight.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Really liked Grainger, Management is a different story

I worked at W.W. Grainger full-time for more than a year


Pros: Working at Grainger was a very good experience. The sales training in DPS was in-depth and applied to real world sales. The managers… Cons: Immediate management's only concern was to increase their own political capital to further their own rise… Advice to Senior Management: Everybody is under pressue to perform, however, if you are truly interested in increasing sales, the stick approach only works so… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
