    Pros

    Literally nothing good to say about this company.

    Cons

    I will not mention any names, but the owners daughter basically runs operations, and treats everyone like dirt. Avoid this place at all costs. Their policies are outdated, payroll constantly screws up checks and it's just not a place you want to wake up every morning and go to.

    Pros

    Good while going to school. Flexible hours. The new Director of Operations, Marc Wasser is very friendly and a great guy to be around. He's a go getter, something that Bemis needs. Take out all current management and have him run the place. Or just sell it all to Marc and he can be the owner. I would work again for him if I was respected and compensated right. And only if the Bemis name was completely taken out, no more Bemis's a part of the place. BTW, Joe Hamblock is no longer the General Manager of the Ford store. Brian Bohman is the new GM and really, they are both great. Both can be moody but they are good at what they do, despite what sales thinks.

    Cons

    Get ready to be viewed at as bottom of the totem pole. Pretty much all family run so its very political. Family (at least one person of the family) is moody and ungrateful. Brian Bemis even fired his own son (not that he was the best manager by any means...actually, i can name two Bemis' that are moody). I'm sure firing him didn't really help much because that place is a revolving door. So happy to be gone!!!!!!!! When you leave, don't recruit anymore, share their info, nothing!! They will threaten to sue you despite what the facts actually show.

    Pros

    Very fair, family orientated business. The health benefits (medical, vision and dental) pay vacation

    Cons

    None, note that most people resist change because they are comfortable. The Bemis family makes changes that make sense that helps everyone and makes them better.
