    I worked at Bernick's full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Flexible with time off. Discount on beverages.

    Cons

    Use up your vacation if you have it. They will not pay out after voluntary or involuntary termination. Unreasonable case loads with no help. You'll be taken advantage of if you are fast. Higher ups are in it for themselves. Ideas are heard but never followed through.

    Advice to Management

    What's the point?

    I have been working at Bernick's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a fun industry with the opportunity to meet good customers

    Cons

    A lot of us question the ethics of management and how we are to go to business against the competition. It's uncomfortable to be asked to break the law.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent. Follow policies set and the laws.

    I have been working at Bernick's (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being part of the load crew in the warehouse works great around a class schedule. Most shifts start after 3pm so as a student its great. Plus $3 cases of beer is the best perk of all! Starting pay is $11.43/hr which is better than most other part time jobs.

    Cons

    Sometimes the nights can get a little late. On average the shifts get done around 10pm but ocassionally we can work past midnight

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of estimating projected cases so the proper amount of employees can be scheduled

    I worked at Bernick's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Associates seem pretty nice,work environment is pleasant, pay is okay

    Cons

    Only the three full time order pickers get to use a mobile picking device, if u are part time or new person get ready for a lot of walking!!!

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same and maybe u can get new people to stay more than a month

    I have been working at Bernick's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    benefits, free breakage pop, discounted beer, plenty of OT if wanted. everyone is very friendly and helpful. the company believes in family time.

    Cons

    on the lower end for industry pay but a good place to get experience. my main complaint is with direct management of the distribution department. any ideas are bad ideas unless it was from management . they play favorites with other drivers. the managers use to come out on routes and help out during busy days if we were short on help, now its the end of the world if they have to leave the office other then getting lunch. all in all a good company with a few departments that need more management training.

    Advice to Management

    remember you were once drivers and apply that to being a manager.
