Gregg Distributors


Size of company: Large (More than 500 employees)

Industry: Motor Vehicules (sales, parts, services)

  • Just left. Feels good.

    I think if you're a customer then there is no better place to go. The customer will always be served well and get good value.

    As an employee, I recommend moving elsewhere. I couldn't stand the micromanaging. I couldn't stand the low morale of staff. I couldn't stand being watched. I didn't like being treated like a 10 year old when I made a mistake. Conversely, I didn't like not getting recognition for the good things I did. I didn't like getting in trouble for talking in the parking lot well after 5pm. I didn't like being subjected to endless stories about the speedskating family, or the fact that family was made the center of the company marketing strategy. I didn;t like not being allowed to talk at packing tables. I just didn't like it.

    Here's hoping my new job with the competition works out better.

More and more people leaving Gregg's every day. Once you leave you really see them for what they are. Soul suckers!

@ Commenter: Be strong! There is light at the end of the tunnel! You'll find something else and then Greggs will just be a memory...I a bet in a year from now, you'll be looking back on your time at Greggs and you laugh about how stupid and ridiculous this company and its loyalists are.

In the mean time, remember this...YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Most of your coworkers probably share some or all of your opinions, but are too afraid to admit it.

Just keep your head up. Work hard (not for them, but for YOU). Stay out of the drama and popularity contests. And live for your off time. And you'll survive just fine, till you are able to make your jail break.

And PLEASE write a review when you do leave.

I wish I could leave, but I'm stuck in the blue cult for the next good while until the job market improves. I'm just about to head out the door and head to work and like always my stomach is turning.

The only thing that allows me to make it day to day at Gregg is reading the stuff on this website. Its good to know that I'm not alone and other have gone through the same things. And I'm inspired by all the people on here that have found life after Gregg Distributors.

I hope by the end of the year I'll be in a new company and be able to write a review on all the garbage I've been I've had to deal with at my time at this horrible place.

Off to work......... :(

In this bad economy Greggs has their people over a barrel.

But, I have a feeling that once the economy comes back to full life, there is going to be a flood people making a "jail break" and leaving Greggs. (...).

The smug is about to be knocked off the Gregg Cult leaders faces...its just a matter off time......

Leaving Gregg's IS like leaving prison. When I left, I had another person call me and ask for advice on making their own escape.

EVERY where I went to apply for work afterwards knew all about Gregg's reputation and would crack jokes with me about it and ask me to tell them my horror stories.

I also find it very telling how there always seems to be people leaving Gregg's all the time with out warning. People that put on the Gregg's smile, wear Gregg's Gear, suck up to the managers, always talk up the company and show their loyalties...then BAMN! They jump ship and pop up at another company, and when you run into them they tell you how much they really hated it at Gregg's, but they had to play "Gregg pride" game to survive there...

I left as well, I still can't beleive how many people from the warehouse, front counter, and sales came to congradulate me like I was getting married or something.
Not one person said sorry to see you go, every comment was telling me how lucky I am that I found another job, and I can get out. I even had a couple ask if they were still looking for more people where I'm going.
Glad to be gone, worst place I have ever worked, in 14 years I only had 2 jobs, last one before Gregg was for well over 10 years, thought when I left for Gregg it was to go into a career, turned out to be the worst move I ever made.

Yes it does feel good to leave, its like freedom.
Even if the new job is not great you definatley will be respected more and won't be treated like a child with management controlling every aspect of your day.
