      Pros

      The management cares about the employees and so many opportunities exist for career advancement.

      Cons

      Sometimes there's a lot on the go so the pace is fast but never a dull moment either.

      Pros

      - The company is winning in the marketplace - Great employee benefits (lots of improvement over the last few years) - The company is big on collaboration at all levels - Totally different company than it was a year or two ago thanks to new leadership across the board and a lot of positive enhancements.

      Cons

      Because the company is growing rapidly there are always a lot of projects on the go. It can be hard to keep up.

      Pros

      From the recruitment process, through onboarding, starting at Wolseley has been a great experience. Colleagues have been eager to help me learn, answer questions and are very receptive to new ideas. Leadership is very responsive to employee feedback.

      Cons

      The company is growing quickly - good news...but some growing pains around processes. This is only a sign of good things to come.

      Pros

      Big company so lots of locations to work from. I love working with customers and feeling like I'm really getting to know what they need and be a good partner to them. Lots of SKUs so never run out of recommendations to make.

      Cons

      Sometimes it feels like HQ in Burlington doesnt care or understand what happens in branches. They seem out of touch with the decisions they make and how those decisions actually play out for us who interact with customers every day and have to deal with the blow back.

      Thanks for sharing this honest review. We really value associates who make customer service a priority. We’ve recently introduced Wolseley Connectors, a group of individuals from the branches, DCs and offices who will share feedback with leadership to ensure all perspectives are considered for new initiatives and programs. We’re looking forward to hearing more from the field.
