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

    Pros

    Decent pay. Fast advancement. Good DM's. My interviewing process was actually quite simple. I've been here for a year. And I'm already a shift supervisor.

    Cons

    Some of the coworkers are not professional. They can be grumpy. Or they can sit outside in the parking lot fighting with there significant other.

    Advice to Management

    Hmm, somethings I would actually consider is checking in more on you're stores to make sure things are running smoothly. Have to walk the talk :)

    I worked at Byrne Dairy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dedicated and hard working management. Plant operators take pride in their work. Company takes and listens to suggestions from employees, even gives cash if ideas used (safety, productivity, anything)

    Cons

    Very long hours many times. Little room for advancement. Lack of repercussions for individuals repeatedly doing things wrong or dangerously.

    I worked at Byrne Dairy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Blue collar people enjoyable. Work was rewarding, although the right people didn't see the accomplishments. Compensation was okay, depending on job function.

    Cons

    There is no personal growth unless you are good friends with someone higher up. They promote values but do not adhere to them. Definitely no perks.

    Advice to Management

    The Byrne family needs to spend more time talking to the blue collar workers as they are the one with the hands on experience and deal with the upper crust on a daily basis. This should be kept confidential, which currently does not happen with the supervisors.

    I worked at Byrne Dairy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Regulars make your day, Tasks are fairly simple, but there is always enough to keep you occupied. If you work your butt off, you have a better chance at getting the shift you desire for the following week.

    Cons

    It took me 9 months of being there to finally receive the 90 day raise they tell you you're supposed to get & 4 months to get my one year raise.
    The store never closes, meaning you get stuck working holidays.
    Food service side of the store is often short handed; especially in the summer when ice cream is open.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of the managers you have in your stores and make sure the DMs are hands on & involved with the stores. Get to know the workers, not just the managers; you don't have a store and people to serve customers well without your cashiers.
    Also, you should reconsider being open 365 day a year. You're taking people away from their families on holidays that they can never get back. If corporate isn't in the office on significant holidays then workers shouldn't have to be in the stores.

    I worked at Byrne Dairy full-time

    Pros

    None at all that I can think of!

    Cons

    I do not recommend a "career" at Byrne dairy at any location. They treat all of their employees like trash. I didnt go in on my last day because my manager screamed at me the day before to "GET OFF MY GOD D*** PHONE" so I found some one to cover for me the next day being nice so they didn't have to suffer being short a person in the deli. I shouldn't of bothered now Im on their "non hireable" list. 5 people followed me out the door and two of those five people have Already left. What can I say? KARMA will bite you back! Screw you Byrne dairy!

    Advice to Management

    Shut your company down. You suck!
