    Pros

    Great pay. Strong benefits. Great people to work with. You receive some of the best sales training available from both internal and external resources that are specific to the MRO world, but also concepts that help you build your future for other potential opportunities outside of sales. Great opportunities for advancement for top producing candidates if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    No movement to improve rural markets. Stuck with more accounts to make goal based on employee return on investment. Cause for burnout with trying to meet required sales plans and goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust goals and sales plans to be SMART, truly SMART for rural employees. Not addressing these issues will not only cause the loss of top talent, but also the loss of revenue and growth for large customers in rural areas.

    I worked at W.W. Grainger full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent profit sharing and stock options and salary

    Cons

    If you don't go out drinking with management be prepared to to never get a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a little more control over the branch managers so as promotions are based more on actual work done vs. who gets friendly.
