Great Company but Hard to Grow your Career Here
Global Supply Chain Specialist (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYJune 6, 2017
Great place to work and people rarely leave As such, the opportunities to move into new roles are rare. Culture here is also unique and best suited for extroverts and outgoing personalities. Board service and taking an active role in Employee Resource Groups is also highly valued.

Global Learning & Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYApril 26, 2017

Success is still dependent on relationships with the right people. Performance is not the overriding factor in career advancement or job retention.

Limited career growth opportunities

Great place to work IF you are not looking to improve your life
Stave Stacker / Saw Operator (Current Employee) –  Clifton, TNApril 13, 2017
Drugs are an issue....professionalism is way down. Management also seems to really not care about important things especially when it comes down to employee downtime

Monotonous, repetitive, not recommended.
Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee) –  Spencer, IN 47460April 5, 2017
It's what you'd expect from a sawmill, despite the hype up from the new hire orientation. The people are good to work with, however, the management is quite under-trained.
Pros
Mon-Fri, daytime hours.
Cons
Under-qualified management. Causes many errors in weekly expectations.

Terrible/cut throat place to work steer clear
First Responder/ Security (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYAugust 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.

Don't work for Brown Forman!

Associate, Finance (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYNovember 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.
