WAS a great company BEFORE InBev
Office MANAGER (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJune 18, 2015
The Anheuser-Busch I worked for no longer exists. They were a company dedicated not only to being the largest beer company, but also a company with hear who cared about their employees. Once InBev bought out A-B, they were interested only in becoming the largest beer company in the world and didn't care what corners they had to take in order to get there and employees were just a tool and not something to be valued.

Laid Back Work Enviroment
Logistics Coordinator (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOJune 15, 2015
Anheuser-Busch is a great place to work. Everybody is cohesive and gets along well, from coworkers to management. Laid back dress code is a huge plus. Toughest part of the job is determining how to deal with each situation that arises on nearly a daily basis regarding wholesalers and issues. Most enjoyable part of the job are the coworkers.

Brewer (Current Employee), Cartersville, GAMay 26, 2015
Pros: Pay and benefits
Cons: Management is young with a high turnover.
Great pay and benefits. Packaging dept. is a tough environment. Great job for young people to get without a degree. Not a bad place to work.

Lead associate (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLMay 26, 2015
As a lead associate my day started out with opening and cash handling as well as all deposits. Some of my day was making schedule when needed. I would all do all receiving of merchandise, tagging and displays of the store.I worked very close with all employees on a day to day bases. There really wasn't a hard part to my job. I enjoyed getting to know customer that would visit us.

It's an ok place to work
Biergarten Server Assistant (Current Employee), Saint Louis, MOApril 13, 2015
Its a pretty easy job to do. The people you work with make it harder because you really cant trust anyone. The hardest think about the job is keeping up with the pace of a really busy day.

Good Benefits but not a career type job
Sales (Current Employee), Denver, COApril 13, 2015
Pros: Benefits, Company supplied car
Cons: Tons of driving and having to keep your schedule open about 12 hrs a day for sales calls
The Denver WOD is a wholesaler for A-B. The branch could be run a lot better but the management chosen by corporate is definitely chosen by favorites, not in the best interest of the company. The atmosphere is unpleasant for the most part because of management.

Laid back but good workplace
Global summer intern (Former Employee), Champaign, ILApril 7, 2015
Pros: sound pay package
Cons: lethargic pace of decision making
InBev has a very laid back work culture. if you enjoy working in ambiguity , InBev is the place. good work life balance and good benefits. the good part is that you have to really work in a matrix structure and you get to learn a lot about various functions

Great job before INBEV purchased company, now they keep pressure on employees, people are great to work with but managment is vendictive and have FAVs
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Fort Collins, COMarch 18, 2015
Maintenance worker for 26 years AB was a fantastic company to work for family oriented, and cared about their Employees and their Products. Now owned by Inbev they don't care about their employees or their product, only the bottom line MONEY. Keep pressure on managers to put pressure on workers. Pay great money but you are there all the time , not a good family life.

Digital Project Manager (Former Employee), St Louis MOMarch 8, 2015
Pros: free beer
Cons: too much overtime
A typical day consisted of managing new requirements required by marketing staff that needed to be added to the brand web pages. My coworkers were friendly, helpful and professional. I was given the opportunity to learn and work with many creative agencies as well as international vendors. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning and working with great people. There was never a dull moment. The most difficult part of the job were the time zones. Many of my contacts were 4-12 hours ahead of St. Louis time.

don't expect what you are told
Route Driver (Former Employee), Jersey City, NJMarch 4, 2015
Pros: 2 cases of beer per month
Cons: they choose the beer.
I was told i'd be making $65 - $70 k per year and the reality is $45-$55 k per year. Routes are very disorganized and inefficient.No benefits til after 90 days. You get 90% pay for the first 6 months.As a new driver you will work with temps that have no experience at all.They tell you that you are not required to take cash and then frown upon it when you choose not to. Absolutely the worst job I have ever had.

VAMPIRES VS. MAVERICKS
Marketing - US Headquarters (Current Employee), St Louis, MOFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: pay, job security & advancement if gmt (general management trainee)
Cons: 12-14 hr days, foul language, no leadership, sexist, ageist, overly processed, no teamwork, no integrity
It is a matrix organization with so much red tape and processes that nothing cannot get done or executed without making a huge production and taking weeks for approval or decision. There isn't any corporate leadership, just a bunch of foreigners that do not know anything of the US market or any other markets for that matter except for stereotypes and one's assumptions. There isn't any clear direction nor visionaries to lead the organization and grow ORGANICALLY. There is a lack of communication and transparency which makes the work you are doing challenging and uncertain. Expect no teamwork since reward is given to the individual and not the group. Functions work in silos and are incentivized differently resulting at times with functions in conflict and at odds with each other rather than unify toward a common goal. Be prepared to work 12-15 hour work days, including weekends. Poor language and manners (i.e., yelling matches) are commonplace including sexism and discrimination based on your appearance (weight, age, gender). It is a very demotivating and deflating workplace. There is poor employee morale and if given the opportunity of another job with equal pay, the majority would leave!

Outside of the GMTs, be ready not to learn or properly be trained. This is not such a company. I recommend to work at AB if you are either a GMT, a Millennial, and/or an experienced professional trained elsewhere who is a Millennial. Pay is good but not for the long hours, zero work-life balance, in a blood sucking environment who prefer to hire "soldiers" who can execute and enforce leadership's will without question. If you want to be a thinker, a leader or an entrepreneur, Anheuser Busch will NOT be a good fit for you.
