Safety and Compliance Coordinator (Former Employee), Halethorpe, MDApril 18, 2013
My normal day at Diageo consisted of auditing the 6 production lines for any glass breaks, dirty cleaning items, and personal hygiene. I was on a 3 month contract, which was extended 6 months because of my performance. I was eventually let go as part of a plant wide layoff resulting in a decline from ~300 jobs to ~50

Customer Service Coordinator and Clerical (Former Employee), Menlo Park, CAMarch 12, 2013
Pros: annual inventory events with breakfast and lunch.
I was always happy to come to work, people in the warehouse was so friendly, helpful and respectful to others.
I learned many cultural values by associating with people that came from different countries.
I was fortunate to have worked with so many supportive management staff at Diageo Menlo Park Plant.
My co-workers were very understanding, always ready to offer help when needed.
The hardest part for me was how to manage irate drivers when they arrived for pick up and product was not available due to warehouse issues.
The most enjoyable, when I completed all my assigned duties plus more before leaving work and start fresh the next day.

Great benefits and a flexibel scheule for the full time reps. Some are even able to work from home 2 days a week or during bad weather. Would defintly recommend applying. Unfortuntealy, there were not any jobs open for me to apply to.
