Associate, Finance (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 12, 2015
great place to work...if you like good company
A typical work day displays how team-oriented the management likes the staff to be. Each day there are ice-breakers, brief meetings and goals set for each shift. After reviewing the objective for the day the team works individually for the remainder of the shift. The managers consistently and constantly provide support for the employees and ensure they have everything necessary for their shift. Easy to move up and get raises, always incentives as well (from candy to a pay raise). Awesome place to work, even more awesome management.
First Responder/ Security (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – August 25, 2016
Management is cut throat. Looking to fire everyone or nonsense matters. Cut security jobs and hired contractor company. Has 2 tier wages which reminds me of when women would do the same job as men and get paid a lot less.

Manager (Former Employee) – Decatur, Al – February 4, 2014
Interview process was not truthful. Management out of touch. Almost no training provided. Vague expectations. Lots of favoritism. Not family friendly. As I said above. Wish I had never worked here. Waste of time and very difficult on my family.
employer tries to buy off empolyees with lots of free food.
no leadership, no direction, no training, not family friendly, i could keep going for awhile...
A wonderful work environment. This Fortune 500 Company offered great perks and enhancements as well as stability which allowed growth.
Bottling and Maintenance Administrator (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – April 8, 2013
My most recent position involved processing payroll for Maintenance and Bottling employees to include editing lunch, shift differential and other extra pay incentives; verifying correctness of hours worked, etc. Additionally, I scheduled necessary training and proper licencing for various skilled trades. I managed Safety and off campus conferences to assure compliance with other agencies. I enjoyed the variety of assignments and awarding perks to employees for a job well-done.
Laid back workplace with great work ethic and atmosphere
Accounts Payable Temporary Employee (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 27, 2014
I typically process invoices and work on excel spreadsheets and databases regarding vendor information. The most important thing I've learned from this is to ask questions and always ask for something to do if there is down time. I enjoy every day I am here because I am learning invaluable real-world experience in the accounting field while not being under the pressure of working and performing at a high level in an accounting firm while taking high level computer information classes to graduate.
Great opportunity but poor hours and poor training.
o Quality Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 3, 2013
I worked the third shift in the quality control lab. My day would start at 10:30pm and end at 7:30am. I was in charge of processing samples of liquor and verifying certain characteristics such as color, alcohol content, pH, and brix. I was also responsible for the maintenance of quality on the bottling line. I learned how to manage my time, balance multiple tasks at once, and anticipate problems before they occur. Since I worked third shift I was the only person in the lab so management was not present during my shift. I would only have contact with them through emails and text messages. The only issue I had with management was the lack of training. When I asked my manager for help with an issue I was having, my manager sent me to a different department to learn how that department operates rather than help fix the problem I was having in my department. My co-workers were excellent. The people I worked with were hard workers, very nice, and extremely professional. They were also very easy to talk to and get along with. The hardest part of my job was the hours. I found it very difficult to work during third shift considering I was tired the majority of the time. It was difficult to sleep during the day and this affected most aspects of my social and professional life. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. I had a great time working with everybody on my shift.
the experience. the people.
the hours. the lack of management. the lack of training.
Midwest Region Korbel Brandy Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – October 1, 2014
At this time I had 10 states in the Midwest, I spent about 75% of the time in WI or MN. Work withs in both on and off premise was a huge part of my time spent. One day a week was given to office duties and about 15% was given to my other markets. I learned that each state had a different value for my products and my job was to bring more importance and production to my brands.
