packaging operator (Former Employee), breinigsville – January 28, 2015
Was given the run around for roughly 6 weeks after going in for interview. The interview went well but from that point on, someone was always either "sick" or on "vacation". In the end I was basically informed that i was not qualified to operate machinery or forklifts even though I have a stable work history, college and years of military experience. The entire process was completely unprofessional and surprising for a company such as Sam Adams.

Cons: they act like they care for you
Caucasian only allowed @ Samuel Adams. I had a prefect résumé and background. My interview went great .They even told me , they need 20 new employee. 99% of Samuel Adams were Caucasian when I took the tour. I will call the OCR to investigate!!!!!!!
Senior Account Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – August 17, 2012
Pros: free beer; no cubicle
Cons: compensation; unrelenting schedule
Working for a beer company certainly had its perks. Getting free beer and working in fun environments like bars and restaurants was fantastic. The hours were a bit hectic. There is no "typical day" in the beer industry, which is good and bad. It was never stagnant or boring, but you couldn't plan you personal life more than two weeks ahead of time. You could work 9 to 5 Monday thru Friday, or work all nights and weekends for months. I definitely learned how to be a superior salesman during my tenure. I learned how to build meaningful and successful relationships as well.
Account Manager (Former Employee), Boston, MA – June 26, 2012
Pros: the beer
Cons: 5+ days a week
Working 5+ days a week. If your looking to have a work-life mentality than this may be the perfect job. If you enjoy your weekends or looking to start a family than this is not the job for you. Sales training is very repetitive and somewhat pointless at times. To be successful here you have to drink the "kool-aid" and is very political. The best way to explain it is almost a high school mentality, everyone talks and there are always rumors floating around.
