Graybar Employee Reviews

A Good Start to a Career, but Not a Lifelong Company

Project Specialist II (Former Employee) - Miami, FL - July 22, 2021

Loved my coworkers and learning about electrical distribution/fixtures, but the workloads were always too high and compensation too low. I was managing, ordering, and billing on multi-million dollar orders and making only between 30 and 40k (before taxes) while the salesperson that hardly did any work on the order was pulling in 6 figures. I could not afford housing within 30 miles of the branch I worked at on my salary alone and was told by management that it was my fault for not negotiating better (highest pay range for my position was still too low to cover rent).

I did work in a customer facing role, so there was a lot of the typical rude quips and aggressive comments from customers. We also received a lot of backlash internally from sales over issues we couldn't control which made the job more stressful than it really should have been. Upper management almost never had our backs and let us take the verbal abuse. Supervisors were usually the ones standing their ground and stepping in to help.

I was given the opportunity to learn more about products after a few years by completing the NAED's EPEC Bronze program, which was great. But it felt like too little too late as I had already been helping to build panels and read plans well before the opportunity was given to me. Would have loved to complete that my first year so that I was better prepared for the order and product issues I would have down the road.

If the company actually offered more opportunities for growth, better managers, and fair compensation, I would not have minded staying for the rest of my working - 

Pros

Coworkers, Product Education

Cons

Low pay, Poor Managers, High Stress, High Workload

"I worked for Graybar from December 2018 until April 2020. My time there was spent using my existing talents and helping Graybar tailor those talents into being a leader within my department. I gained a ton of knowledge that I will take with me to my next role where hard work and determination will make me a strong candidate."

"Having worked with Graybar for several years in several positions. I would recommend the company if asked to by a friend. The workplace is friendly and i feel like management does have the employees interest in mind. However the compensation is not competitive this gets covered by some profit share / shares options but it does not make up the deficit Overall i good company but needs to pay the employees more."

"Graybar is an excellent company that treats its employee well, but their attitude towards technology is remarkably old-fashioned. I would not recommend it for a developer who's looking for a forward-thinking environment."
