Matthew Tisdale, a customer of Builders FirstSource Matthew Tisdale, posted his opinion on Facebook in June 2020:
I do not recommend this company for anything. Worst experience dealing with everything from a salesman to management and staff. The salesman is downright rude and hard to work with. If you have any warranty issues it’s like pulling teeth to get anything done, just terrible service. Never get any callbacks when you leave a message with this company, and their right-hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. Save yourself any trouble and go with a good company. This one needs new management to teach their staff and salesman proper work ethics.
Former Employee - Maintenance Supervisor says"Hot, Sawdust in your underwear, lack of leadership"
Former Employee - Manager says"Many employees are hired through temp agencies so employees don't feel valued. Company has grown through acquisition leaving it without a core culture. Upper management is happy to manage by email but does little to support. Processes are redundant, antiquated and waste time. Efficiency is not a priority. They make the simple process of selling material more complicated than it needs to be. There is little training available to new employees. This company seems to be more focused on financial gimmicks than being profitable through hard work and servicing the customer."
Current Employee - Office says"Managers do no know how to manage people, poor leadership, unprofessional employees, lack of team work, favoritism, lack of positive reinforcement, no one takes accountability., You have to rely on overtime bcz the pay sucks, so no work life balance."
Former Employee - Delivery Driver/Load Puller/Customer Service says"Crappy equipment no training go go go attitude,,. pull any employee off to the side and ask them a question and their answer is I don't give a and that starts in the office all the way down to the load pullers. They do not care what time you get off what time you start as in if it fits their needs . They can take a nice vacation but when you ask for a week off and if another driver or load puller has a day off in the middle of the week you cannot have that week because somebody else has got your spot for one crappy day that's how they operate the biggest backstabbing organization I've ever been around with no training asked for something you get nothing . can never trust anybody there somebody is always out to get you and you are always a liar.. never get "Good Job "out of anybody.. And if there is a foul up your butt is on the line for a very long time, years .Do 8000 jobs correct but by God don't be on the wrong side of them once you have a screw up with their crappy equipment it's constantly butt kissing! To The Bitter End!! and you will get tired of it very quickly: people are very uneducated do not know what the right hand to the left hand is doing and that's a fact ask anybody but then again they say I don't give a CRAP!!"
