Sales (Former Employee) – Kansas – September 15, 2016
Actively look to cut the bottom 20% of employees regardless of how they perform. Watched the VP of Wine physically manhandle someone, and cuss people out on several occausions Senior VP talks trash on employees to other employees, takes all the supplier trips away from sales reps. Hard to get higher up positions in KS you usually have to be in their click.
Warehouse, merchandiser (Former Employee) – West Texas – September 14, 2015
This company has gone down the drain in the recent 5 years! I've worked for this company for over 12 years and seem to get nowhere! Beware of all the sugar coating that they give you! The company makes themselves out to be all about the employees and they aren't! So don't waste your life away in this dead end job unless your upper management! They are horrible at compensation, I've wasted 12 years of my life and family for 35 cent raises every year!
Human resources, managers, branch manager, pay, pay raises, expensive benefits! Management is all about themselves and themselves making money!
Supervisior (Former Employee) – Layfette, La – August 23, 2016
Southern Glazer in Layfette,La is the worse place to work! Rude people, hostile work place, no,help from upper management! Employees don't do,their work and the supervisior just look the other way, atmosphere is very harsh and people are very clannish! The management teams leaves a lot to be desired ,when you take issues to,them about being mistreated, no one does anything! The treatment of employees is so bad they can't keep decent help! Don't think,you can go to,upper management for help,because it will all be swept under the carpet!!!!! Management just covers their butts! Nothing changes!!!!!
Hostile work, place, no help from upper management
Sales Rep (Current Employee) – Central Texas – July 25, 2015
Been with Glazers for just over 3 years. It can be a fun job sometimes. Not many jobs around let you drink while you work. For the most people the people are great. It's a fun bunch. Having said that, the pay is abismal. As a sales rep you can expect to earn 36-40k a year. That is much lower than industry standards. Pay raises are also very small and executed in a very unorganized fashion. The company is very disorganized. No one knows what the others are doing. Lower management is for the most part good (they were recently Sales Reps). Above the DSM position most are so out of touch it's sad. The company offers very little room for advancement. At the top it's the good old boy system. It's definitely not what you know (because most that high are clueless), it's who you know. I would recommend this job to a recent college grad but NOT for a professional salesperson.
Healthcare is adequate. Can be a fun environment. Free alcohol.
Pay is pathetic. Upper management is incompetent. Everyone is expendable.
They will sugar coat your job and once you get in the door you are on your own. HR runs this company so beware. HR used to be there for the interest of the employees, not this company. HR will stab you in the back in the chance they get to protect the company.
I was employed at glazes for a little over 10 years, I gave my life to glazes working ridiculous hours and being away from my family. Once they terminated me I was cut at the knees. All benefits ended that day. Really 10 years and not even 30 day extension, I would have taken 2 weeks.
The pay is abysmal. Management is a bunch of children who will throw you under the bus. Fake. Useless corporate. Dont recognize hard work only when you make a mistake. DO NOT WORK AT THE WICHITA BRANCH. Im sure its the same everywhere. Just dont do it. I wasnt the only one treated bad. So. Heres your warning. DONT DO IT.
Free booze sometimes.
Management. The culture. They lie to you and tell you you can move up. Not true.
Office (Current Employee) – West Texas – July 1, 2015
I love the people I work with and the environment, but the pay and raises are an insult. Our warehouse workers got a $4/hr raise due to the "oil boom" while the office workers get a 15 cent raise. Our living expenses aren't any less! We are just as essential to the business running smoothly but I feel like that is ignored. The company does have some fun events like Truck Rodeo, family days, etc but the yearly "raises" are a joke unless you're a warehouse worker or in a higher up position.
Administration Clerk (Former Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – July 11, 2016
Glazers prides itself on being a family company but that's not true. I worked at the North Little Rock ar branch and the management treat their employees like dirt. They work your fingers to the bone and not want to give more than a quarter raise. I wouldn't recommend my worst enemy's to apply for a job at Glazers.
6inches of snow, branch close but management decides not to pay you.
Im a hard dependable worker that is try to set a goal for myself to be a weathy humanbeing in this world we live today . i can be a the worst off my days but i wouldnt bring that on or at the work place or any where the work require for
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 20, 2016
Management has a saying, "If you're not working 65 hours a week, you're not worth it to this company." That's absurd to begin with, but you're only salaried for 40 hours. Anything over and you're just SOL. Management is constantly tracking your location and telling you what you're doing wrong. Overall just a bad job with a bunch of awful people. Find something else. I did.
Accounting (Former Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – February 21, 2016
I didn't care for this job at all. Management was not helpful at all. Training was not a it's best. When you are being trained someone will come in and pull that person from you and you will have to wait until that person comes back so learning things was on my own time.
Merchandising Position was great for college student
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – November 4, 2015
I am unsure about all merchandising positions but the one I held was great for being a college student. The set schedule was only once a week on Friday to meet the delivery driver and assist them with the delivery, after that you made your own schedule for the rest of the week. Management was understanding and would work with me anytime I could not work the merchandise due to school.
Rather not say (Former Employee) – Dallas texas – May 3, 2013
Worked for this company for 9 years. No opportunity for advancement unless you are of the Jewish faith or part of the Glazer family or attend their temple. Unbelievable disloyalty in upper management. People worked 20+ years get escorted out the door like they were criminals. Company headed south with new "leadership". Unless you are desperate, do not give this company the time if day as they will do everything in their power to take the money you earn and stab you in the back.
Can't think of anything.
GPS micromanaging devices for management/sales, they never work right, your word is doubted when GPS doesn't work, no one knows how to fix, no one monitors, scare tactic
