    Pros

    Berger is a good place to start a career and learn the basics.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. You will not make anywhere close to the same position in other companies. Men will always do better at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same when it comes to pay. Pay people for the job they do.

    I have been working at Berger Transfer & Storage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast paced working environment. I learn something new every day. Not a dull moment.

    Cons

    Summer is the busiest season so there are not breaks and lots of late days. No training, all on the job training, learning as you go.


  3. "Nice place to work"

    Pros

    At Berger, you get to know all of your coworkers very well, including from other departments. Berger has a very friendly and open atmosphere for it's employees. If you need assistance from another department you can walk right up and ask for it on a first name basis. From my experience, they are very good at promoting proffesional develpment and offer assistance to help employees expand their knowledge of their chosen field.

    Cons

    As with any smaller company, there is limited room for career advancement. For example, my department had six or seven people in it. Each person had a specific duty, and while we did cross train, there wasn't really room to move into a different position from the one I started in, without someone else leaving their position to create an opening.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Berger Transfer & Storage full-time

    Pros

    Established, family owned, long tenure--not necessarily in a good way, largest Allied Moving franchise, locations in many areas of the country.

    Cons

    Still does most things the old fashion way. You have to work there for 20 years before you are part of the "in-group".

    I have been working at Berger Transfer & Storage full-time

    Pros

    I enjoy my coworkers and the challenges the job presents. Learn something new everyday and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management tends to micromanage everything you do. Constantly only points out negatives and rarely tells you good job. The training is on the job and doesn't teach you much; have to figure everything out on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Be more positive, stop nit picking, just because someone does something a different way doesn't make it wrong.

    Pros

    Berger is a great Company takes care of it's employees

    Cons

    Owners seem to have there eyes closed as to whats going on in there separate divisions. They take length of employment over dedication to the company.

    Advice to Management

    look into all terminations, ask why if the performance has been exemplary why are they being terminated.
