    Hours can sometimes be long, but its to produce results.
    Some leadership has to together, others do not.
    Training is constantly required because methods are always changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the idea that the team has, and try not to make promises to the clients that cannot be met.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, relatively not stressful. Easy work. Lots of time off and paid holidays. People there can be welcoming if you stick around.

    Cons

    Most everyone in manufacturing dislikes working there. Low pay. Long hours. Messed up schedule. Very high turnover rate. Many unclear policies and instruction. The work is very boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people more. They make your business happen. Focus on quality, then numbers. More incentive for loyal/good employees. Listen to the obvious signs of the high turnover rates. Refine your policies and procedures so employees know in detail what you expect of them.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You receive incentive pay for how fast you work, so the faster you work the more money you receive. Start pay is decent, $11 per hr for night shift $10 for day shift. Easy job everything is pretty much in numeric and alphabetical order.

    Cons

    Takes for ever for a full time position to be available

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you treat your employees right they will work hard for you.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The summer internship program is a great experience. You get to meet many executive members and network with other higher ups. The environment is very laid back and welcoming. The experience is very valuable and helps set you up for your future.

    Cons

    There were times where there was not much to do rather than busy work. Also, getting used to SAP took some time at first.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    Work place is nice. They have great soft drinks and hot beverages also.

    Cons

    People are nice front of your face. You will earn rewards for the work you do, but when they don't need you they will say you have poor work performance your quality was bad. Make so many excuses. It would not be right to show them good performance certificate they given to you to prove them wrong. They like people with poor quality with high production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really hope management think twice before making such decisions. Its all about your company's reputation. After all its your company.
