    I worked at ProBuild full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great People to work with. Made many friends and enjoyed going to work for many years till the last few.

    Cons

    STRESS!!! No compensation for getting a job done. Upheaval in Mgmt. Newer IT System was a disaster from implementation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the IT System of the past few years if you haven't already. SR Mgmt should be regional and not all in Denver. Market should be looked at regionally and not nationally. Supply and Demand along with overall economy is different in all geographical regions of the US. Conclusion: Bigger is not always better.

    Pros

    Growing business. Good location. Seems to be working I projects to make the job easier.

    Cons

    There isn't enought time set aside for training. The tools are not there to feel confident in your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is key. Please do not lose sight of the fact that training is important and employees need to feel like they have the tools to succeed.

    I have been working at ProBuild full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The good work environment is one of the best reasons I have for working here. Employees to employees and customer to employee relationships are for the most part friendly and productive, making for a fun and relaxed work culture. Local management is good, they look out for their employees, encourage them to advance, and are well liked even by the few employees that don't like each other.

    Cons

    Intense workload in the summer months, time difference from AK to the Lower 48(for special orders), vague job duties/descriptions(within roles, i.e. cashier, inside sales I, inside sales II, receiving, inventory control)

    I worked at ProBuild as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Job is exciting and always changes. Everyone is friendly. My team is very welcoming. Everyone works hard.

    Cons

    Position is currently temporary. There is not always consistency or best practices in place. Corporate and the field don't always see eye to eye on many topics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to get best practices in place and align corporate and the field by having the field share their best practices and what works for them now and in the past.

    Pros

    The people around the yard were good to work with, very willing to help out each other.

    Cons

    The issue I had was a lack of any type of urgency on the customers behalf. The customer would be taken care of, eventually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the smaller customers, as they will bring in the larger ones.
