Awesome place to work, would go back in a heart beat
receptionist administrative assistant (Former Employee) – High Point, NC – December 29, 2015
this job was 13 years of wonderful, fast pace work, dead lines, always something new to learn. Amazing benefits, management was great as well, always room for advancement, this company is very large and even if you had never seen someone faces to face, you still felt like family, even in an email and on the phone. Typical work day lots of paper work, checking for errors, talking to customers, communicating with sales rep, management, other businesses, worked closely with telephone companies. Hardest part of this job. Leaving. I can honestly say I never once said "I don't wont to go to work today" working for The Berry Company.

Digital Account Coordinator (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – March 29, 2015
I had to leave after working here for just a few short months, there is NO female management or leadership at least for the Dayton and Cincinnati "frat houses"
They hire individuals who have NO experience with SEO, marketing, copyright, or web developmeny experience and the ones they do (like me) see how they are taking advantage of small businesses and leave which is why they have such a high turn over rate.
Any company can set up a Google plus account, it's free! And they charge for this, they also don't implement schema coding (something almost all their new hires don't know or understand) and they use their own "analytics" which doesn't even offer real time tracking like Google analytics, which is also free!
Small businesses realize the scam soon after and drop like flies, making it difficult to retain accounts.
The boss of the Dayton office let's his son run the Cincinnati office like a dang frat house and it's completely unprofessional and lacking in female management or diversity.
My manager was previously in sales and had NO idea what SEO, schema coding, or html was! He had to ask ME for advice and that's whose running these small businesses accounts...
Also if you have a degree, experience, speak multiple languages, and are working on your masters you sill get crummy pay, I've worked as an admin assistant before and made more money!
My daily job duties varied everyday due to the nature of the job. I worked on financials, worked with clients, created and maintained reports and documents. I've learned a lot over the years including basic office work, pc skills, generating various reports, reveiw of financial reports, creating memos for customers, working with customers, and developing budgets. Co-workers were wonderful to work with. My direct Manager was a great and understanding person to work for. Hardest part of job was not knowing if I would have one the next day. Most enjoyable part of job was the work I did and the people I worked with.
The management team is brutal to work for and big on punitively punishing their sales people for local clients canceling advertising. During my time with the company they changed publication dates of phone directories without telling their sales team then when the project was nearly completed asked the sales team to go back and tell the client they are enacting a clause in the contract to extend the billing of the old contract by 3 months. This put the sales people in a very bad light with the local businesses. I would not recommend this company.
established relationships with clients
poor product results and poor fulfillment of digital media
I loved helping peoples business through a great advertising program
Customer Service & Sales Representative History (Former Employee) – Seattle and various different cities – January 25, 2015
My day was at least 10 hours a day I. I would spend the morning making sure I had all the correct information that I would need about my customers business and his competitors to make sure I could put together the best possible program for my customer.
Over the thirteen years I did advertising I learned that when I had the customers business need first the better I did. I always enjoying sharing sales ideas with my co-workers. I often found my got some of the best ideas from a co-worker
The hardest part of sales is of course ; however the best part is closing a big sales that I had worked very hard on
putting together a sucessful advertising program for my clients
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – January 24, 2015
The Berry Company is one of the best Nationwide companies to work for if you are looking for a sales and customer service job. When I started in June 2014, I was not 100% sure that I would like being in an office setting all day and being on the phone, although there is a Outside Sales Rep position. I was so used to taking care of customers in person. It took me a good 3 months to get comfortable with my job,but I absolutely love it today! Once you gain knowledge of the Hawaiian Telcom directory regulations, online marketing and advertising products, and LocalVox, everything becomes a breeze. You become 100% focused on getting to know the customer and which of our products best fit their business needs. You are paid salary plus commissions. Your performance pays off, and it starts with the customer. You are apart of a team and new competitive opportunites are given to help you earn more $'s. Management today cares about their employees. They drop what they are doing to help you in the time of need. If you don't have a need to succeed, then this job is not for you. The job has a lot of growth opportunites around every corner.
$'s revolve around your performance; sales tools and management readily available; great hours, benefits, and holiday pay
none; any job is stressful and requires hard work to succeed

customer relations representative (Former Employee) – 3100 Research Boulevard Dayton OH 45420 – September 12, 2014
Good People, nice management, interesting job. The hardest part of the job was juggling the phones with all of the side work that had to be done for each customer. Being able to help customers or give assistance to a fellow worker was the most rewarding part.
fair and impartial treatment. relaxed environment.
not having enough hours in the work day to finish everything you would like to finish.
