What I like about the company

You get out of Ferguson what you put into it. Internal and External Customer Satisfaction along with Safety are top priorities on a daily basis. The training and development opportunities provided to me over the past 13 years have helped me make a career out of my employment with Ferguson. I am proud to be employed with them and am a true success story. Started as a temporary (seasonal) associate 13 yrs ago and now I am the 1st shift floor manager. The culture and dedication Ferguson has for its employees and customers supports growth and a family oriented experience.

What I dislike about the company

There current business model of hiring outside people for key senior management positions. I have always been a firm believer of promoting from within. Those that worked from the "ground up" so to speak within Ferguson have added dedication and value that associates appreciate and respect when those people are promoted into key senior management positions.
The associate incentive program needs to be reevaluated to promote teamwork instead of individual reward

Company Culture

Very bad! People are afraid to ask questions or communicate.

Support from management

No support; they don't want to listen to you, don't understand your job, and doesn't care to. Just want to take credit!

Teamwork

No teammates; just competition and backstabbing; withholding information to make your life miserable.

Freedom to work independently

Micromanagement, watching the wrong people! Adding more work to people who work hard, and less to people who don't care about their job! And get promoted!

Internal Communication

No communication, just figure out your job (no training), and don't ask management because they have no idea hoe to do your job.

Gender Equality

It's the good Ole boys club!

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not trustworthy; they will throw you under a bus. There are no friends in business.

Career Development

No promotion or raise, just more work!

Overall compensation for your work

Too much work for little pay; never promoted or given a raise, just more work!

Office / Work Environment

Toxic

Environmental Friendliness

Doesn't care about environment impact.

Work-Life Balance

There is no life outside Ferguson.

Company Image

High turnover, should tell you something about the company image.

Job Security

Upper management would put fear and doubt in your mind. Thinking they were better than and you are beneath them.

Handicapped Accessibility

Good

Workplace Safety

Great job!

Challenging Work

You're doing the work of 4 people and management has no clue about what you do; just want to take credit for your work.

Inclusive / Diverse

These are the people who get promoted thanks to the Government giving credit to corporate companies who hire or promote to receive more credits and money.

Suggestions for improvement

  • HR should be more involved at local levels - we'll only see HR maybe once a year and that person spends time with the higher managers instead of the associates. We recently reduced hours from 50 to 45 a week but then did not staff properly to pick up the added work that still needs to be done in less time per day. They also should add more flexibility to all levels of management in terms of remote access and laptops so that customers can actually get answers and associates don't feel so overwhelmed.

What I like about the company

I was able to accelerate my career quickly with this company as there was some constant turnover. I'm thankful for those experiences and the opportunity to grow as a business woman.

What I dislike about the company

I highly disapprove of the management. They do not staff properly so it runs thin with associates and even thinner with seasoned associates. The hours are hard and the expectations are high; it's quite stressful.
