    I worked at Univar full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked at 2 locations and 2 different positions at 2 different times. My first time with Univar was absolutely fabulous, great coworkers on the west coast. I worked hard but the atmosphere was amazing. Then a few years later I went back to work for them on the east coast this time and the company either changed or it was the people and culture that was different. Different position (sales) but I didn't have a good experience. No direction, did not want to focus on building customer relationships as I had done in my previous position as a Coordinator, only care about increasing revenue and new sales at the expense of existing customers.

    Cons

    Lack of direction, bad middle managers, no training
