Current Employee - Service Center Manager in Birmingham, AL (US)

I have been working at Baker Distributing

Pros

Easy computer system to learn and very good product line offering. Great customer retention also with great marketing backup. And great overall communication.

Cons

Central ordering through a distribution center by people who have no idea what your local stock levels should be. Limit of $250 for branch managers to buy goods without going through a buyer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow branch managers more of a say in what their branch stocks and the levels of inventory. Also split up the larger zones into smaller ones.

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

    Pros

    Close to home, free coffee, clean office. Co workers friendly.

    Cons

    Managers I didn't expects to be best buds with, but I expected them to be impartial. Not! Medical plan didn't cover much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Based on the recent reviews Glad to see in the time I've been gone things haven't changed. In over 5 years never got a word or praise only told when things went wrong. No reviews were given in the years of wage freeze because if there is no raise available there is no reason to tell you if we like how you do your job. Wonderful answer from my manager. Should have left sooner.
