An employee’s Hourly rate needs based on the employee’s performance and not their current rate of pay. I do more for this company than most and do not get paid for my performance.

It is a retail experience I have a great manager love him but want to utilize my experience as an infusion pharmacist and manager. After working for a home infusion company for several years and currently on the side I Know I need more of a challenge than retail. My love is helping people exceed and my passion is helping where I can to help others develop an experience outside the normal realm of healthcare.

They are a good locally owned company that does care about it's employees. There are some occasional communication issues between the support center and the store level. This could be improved, but otherwise it is a well run company.

As with any company there are ups and downs. B&R is a pretty good company. Managers are bad in some places and good in others. The benefits are pretty good for a small company. I would recommend this for any young person trying to learn hard work. Those who enjoy the job or want more experience have many opportunities for advancement in their home store and the many other locations available.

At first it was a very nice place to work. Then management kept changing and nobody seemed to know how to run things and they are having a hard time keeping employees. Their system doesn't make sense and favoritism is displayed.

While it is a great place to work at, they do tend to push all the work on you when I worked at night. coupled with a couple of bad managers there, it really doesn't help the company.

This company only cares about the bottom line, they will use their employees to the breaking point. They do not care about you as a person. The costumers are rude and you just have to stand there and make sure they leave happy, even if they're yelling at you.
Pros
None
Cons
Bad management, stressful working environment, management only cares about profits

Good place to be employed for a hard working individual that likes to keep busy. Upper management was caring and showed interest in their employees. The job does demand an employee to work holidays, weekends and nights due to the company being opened 24/7
Pros
Was able to advance
Cons
Hours were undesirable

An average day was 6 am-1 pm and although the same vendors came in every day, each day was different. I worked with a great group of longtime vendors which made my job easier. Management would routinely come through and visit each department. For the most part everyone worked together and we were consistantly in the top spots company wide in regards to sales.I would say the hardest thing about this job was the holiday season which ran from mid October through January 1st. I enjoyed the interaction with the vendors and developed some great relationships during my time at this company.
Pros
Hours, Tickets for free meals
Cons
Communication, Vendors not following company rules

For the most part, I enjoyed my time. I had a wonderful manager who always had my back. Then he was transferred away. The new manager never left his office. Barely spoke to his management team. Insisted we call him Mr (Last Name). He was younger than me.

My position was changed and when that change came, it was given to a former store manager who I had to train to do the job. I wasn't given another opportunity within the company, so I left.

I learned many valuable skills, and worked with a fun group of people.

Over all my experience with B&R has been good but over the last few years there have been many changes good and bad.
