    I have been working at 7up American Bottling Company full-time

    Pros

    It's more of a physical job, but it's not too hard. Stock shelved, fill displays, and work the load when it comes in.

    Cons

    You are told you will get help if you have a big load, but I have never had help. Only get help on the days you don't have a load. work every weekend. Low pay compared to other companies.

    Pros

    Weekly Pay; Benefits from day one

    Cons

    Use of personal vehicle with low flat mileage rate that covers only gas and not wear and tear; Management is very focused on their checks rather than ours; too much micromanaging; Chinese overtime and wages not competitive to competiton's.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those managers who are related; Focus on helping the employee be better equiped to complete tasks; acknowledge that employees have families and circumstances that warrant them taking care of those responsibilities (work /Life balance).

    Pros

    Great job if you need money and want to loose weight. All the over time you want and dont want.

    Cons

    You work for the sales department. Seems like they just look at the numbers they have to make and are substantially less concerned about what the customer needs. Basically an overnight position. Don't plan anything on weekends or holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the entire sales department! Bernicks has been very successful without a dedicated sales force.
    Merch managers are really good hardworking people.
