Collections Assistant - St Louis, MO - March 25, 2021
I started back in April 2016, I was excited because if all the good things I heard about Graybar. I worked there for almost 5 years and was let go a week ago. Lack of training sucks and if you are not a favorite you will not excel in your position. The level of favoritism is unreal.
