I have been working at Bernicks full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Job is pretty laid back, and so are the employees/management. If you don't lose track of money, drive poorly, or over-order product you're generally good to go. Its a good workplace environment and base pay is good for the position itself.

Cons

Insurance benefits are terrible. Bonus is tied to performance of entire company, not your division -- meaning you can have a great year but it doesn't matter if a new product roll-out flopped in another area. Upward mobility difficult, especially depending on location.

    I worked at Bernicks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good company, good people, everyone is super nice. A company that plans to grow and will continue to hire more people. Employee growth is also important.

    Cons

    Compensation is low for the industry, extremely top heavy company that likes to waste time in meetings, they also spend too much time shining each other and do not make decisions that are plausible in the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time and money on meetings and more time in the market

    Pros

    Bernick's had great involvement in the local community and they were involved all over the state in various events. Benefits were also ok.

    Cons

    Bernicks was a terrible company. All the rollouts that the company were poorly thought through, and poorly executed. When harm was done to the customer, they did not care, they looked for their own efficiencies, as they had the markets cornered. I can't believe they are as big as they are, my 7 year old could manage better.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to deal with change better, when buying other distibutors, have a better plan on how to deal with the employees, and to also be ready to supply the customers with the products they want.
