ProBuild Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
ProBuild Holdings was a privately held diversified supplier of lumber and building materials to professional builders and contractors in the United States.
A former employee shares her disappointing experience on indeed.com, "ProBuild is good but Managent is terrible.. Especially if you are a female. If you are a female they minimize your value. They have very little respect for women and men as well. Tremendous favoritism. This place needs Management personnel with actual management skills or some kind of training. I was so disappointed. I have been in this business 25+ years and never was I subjected to such a demeaning environment. Mind you , I was not terminated by any means. I left the this company because it was intolerable."
says"Pay is very low for the amount of work we do, owner will throw others under the bus to make himself look better, prices are too high for any local to pay."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Upper management only cares about the numbers, not the people. They will replace good people that produce but make more with less experienced people just to make more profit. They overload you with work and expect it done yesterday."
Assembly Line Worker says"Worst management I've ever seen no safety enforced"
says"Do a lot of work with no credit and very little money. No support from upper management , its a good stepping stone, but not where to stay for long term"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"After the buyout by Builders First Source, all that optimism is gone. BFS is run by grandparents who haven't the slightest idea what to do with this "new fangled" internet, with these "upstart" kids talking about "big data" and "connectivity"."
Former Employee - Cashier says"Dixieline Lumber Co. is a very unprofessional place to work. You are basically just a number to them. There computer system is from 1913. The Managements lack of communication, and the lack of training employees correctly is the reason why I no longer work there anymore. There's a lot of favoritism and I can see why there is a very high turn over."
Former Employee - Material Handler - Forklift Operator says"After giving it all you've got, doing the best you can at your job (sufficiently getting all your multiple tasks (while extreme multitasking) completed), and even going above and beyond to be a great valued worker in hope to get promoted (some fair day in life); It is a real shocker and hard to come to terms of making logical sense when you are all of a sudden jobless."
says"pushy work place. poor planning. everything seems rushed and the management cant deal with that very well. nickel and dime you to death. each year I got great reviews and a whopping 35 cent raise. they don't appreciate nothing. big talk about moving you up in the company evrytime. dead end job . and they love to take advantage of a good worker , and do not know how to disapline a bad employee at all. oh I almost forgot, they push you all day to get 10 hrs of work done in 7 hrs so you get a lunch and then go home. winter time is hard,no good pay. my advise is that if your gonna take a job there do yourself a favor and get a second job...."

I worked the Saturday shift that literally no one else ever worked that was seniority... Very micromanaged. The customers were great, but the whole thing about this place was just not good. Trucks always non maintained. I had a fun experience in a C.D.L. truck going down Zimmerman Trail with no brakes.. Let me tell ya that was a real "think fast" situation. Everything with everyone that I worked with there was always in argument mode."

Clean up crew (Former Employee) says"It was a typical day working for pro build. I learned some basic stuff like operating a fork lift, flat stacking lumber and dealing with inventory. In my opinion the management sucked and they were very unfair. The work environment was okay. just a typical lumber yard that was very far from home. I would have to say the hardest part of the job was having to drive far to get to work as well as trying to learn every single piece of product in the yard as well as having to clean the whole yard by myself. To me this job was very miserable and there was no enjoyable part working for this job.short lunch break, bad working environment"
