Family owned and operated
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Madison, ALOctober 24, 2016
BBC is a small and close knit company that has been around since the early 90's. The work is hands on in the field and the management can be very understanding. I have had to keep on my toes in many situations and it can be frustrating at times when the work load would go up, but everyone is on the same team and paddling in the same direction. BBC is a little company pulling in big business and is only going to grow!
Pros
Freindly staff, lenient lunch breaks, always something you can be doing
Cons
Can be too fast paced, not a lot of training when hired in

Great company, less pay but has great benefits to counteract.

Although my time with BBC was short, it was a great place to work and feel the fantastic vibe of the whole team. The closeness among the co-workers is the best asset of this company.

Great place to work with a huge amount of assistance.
Business Banking Manager (Current Employee) –  Regency Park, South Australia, AustraliaNovember 1, 2015
Regency Park BBC North is a great place to work with a world knowledge being shared between colleagues to help all grow and develop to the best of their abilities.
I spend 3 days a week out on the road meeting with existing and new clients to ensure that I am providing quality service and tending to all of the customers needs in a timely manner.
There is a great group of fun, like minded individuals in the office which makes for a very enjoyable day.
The management is great and the support is always available no matter what the situation. The hardest part of this job is the quantity of work so ensuring I have a good time management structure is paramount. Planning is the key to success.

Field Working
Different Jobs (Former Employee) –  Ducor, CaJune 15, 2015
During working in the fields a typical day would be cutting off leaves from the branches and opening up the grapes so they could be cut easily and quickly. I learned how to be hardworking and how to properly cut grapes so they wouldn't be so bunched, or fall off the trees. The management was great! The manager was a very great, and helpful person. Coworkers were always relaxed, and helpful as well. They would help out if you were too slow and would always encourage you to keep going and working hard. The hardest part of the job had to be the heat. Enjoyable part of the job was how easy the work was once you got the hang of it and it would be fun listening to music and doing what you had to do.
Pros
Good hours, and fun times while working
Cons
The heat
