IT Manager (Current Employee), Bronx, NYAugust 13, 2015
Manhattan Beer is fast paced but the benefits of this far exceed any other job that I have held. The management is something that people have been blogging about for a very long time and it isn't something that is going to change. The management is effective and has made Manhattan Beer what it is now, the biggest distributor in NY. Above all this, Manhattan Beer the best job that I have ever had and my distance and the addition of my 2 daughters is what keeps me from continuing the employment.

Manhattan Coors Momentum Supervisor (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 4, 2015
I worked with the owners and bar managers to set up promotions to make sure that our brands were the feature beers, and to ensure that these accounts met company standards. In addition to these duties and throughout my years working in this industry with Manhattan Beer, I developed strong problem solving skills, which in turn helped secure accounts.

merchindise handler (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYJuly 8, 2015
Pros: meeting new people, seeing new places.
Cons: Driving a lot can sometimes take a toll on you and not to mention the parking tickets.
A typical work day was fun and easy going can be a lot of work at times. I had cool co-workers we helped each other out when needed, I learned streets and area's I never knew while driving my scheduled rout, the most enjoyable part was I had the chance to meet new people and made new friends.

Steady Paycheck & Job Security
Sales Rep (Former Employee), Bronx, NYDecember 1, 2014
Pros: steady paycheck, job security
Cons: shallow glass ceiling, rewards longevity over talent
A consistent paycheck and the job security are the highlights of the company.

Downfall is that seniority takes precedent over talent/hard work.

The longer you stay, the more you get... But good luck staying motivated long enough to see a return on your effort.

Recycle Laborer (Former Employee), Suffern, NYNovember 10, 2014
Pros: a whole hour of lunch. great co-workers team oriented
Cons: none.
A typical day at work is organizing the breakages from the night the day before, then seperating the color and clear bottles for recycling as well as the cans. The management was great. Very enthusiastic willing to teach and very helpful in completing difficult tasks. The most enjoyable part for me was being able to work with great people who helped each other for the common goal in a fun yet safe working environment.

Worst possible company to work for
Sales Route Representative (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 18, 2014
Management only cares about themselves. They don't value the people actually out on the route doing the real leg work. Will replace you on a dime even after 4 years of dedication and hard work. Lazy Management

Manhattan Beer Distributors
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Wyandanch, NYMarch 13, 2014
Pros: had an extremely awesome boss.
Cons: literally everything else.
Manhattan Beer Distributors was a job I worked at for a year. I worked as a merchandiser which consisted of moving products, hanging marketing signs, rotating beer in coolers around various beer distributors around Long Island. I loved my manager. Down to earth guy and was extremely flexible but also stern and fair. When I left he was the one guy I genuinely would miss working for. That being said , the company itself was not. Driving around long island for what seemed like minimum wage was un fair. When asked for a raise I was told their were none for my position unless promoted to sales which I had no experience at the time. Another horrible thing that was actually just taken to court was un paid overtime. They lost a lawsuit to some other merchandisers who took the matter to court and anyone who worked in a time period got a settlement. The funny part of that was when you came back exactly at the time you were scheduled to work you were reprimanded. Overtime was expected with no extra compensation. Another issue was for me I worked under 4 salesman who had their respective store all over long island. I'd be assign to them sporadically through out the week. They had a contest for these salesman if they had these awesome displays in the sales stores they would get prizes. I would take time out to build these magnificent displays and these salesman would win like 500 to 1000 dollars. I hardly ever saw a cent and I would build the whole thing. I will never work for them again.

A generally bad place to work
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: occasional free beer
Cons: bad physical work environment, very poor management, terrible hours
To start, if you don't like warehouse conditions then I would avoid this place. When I took up the job as an inventory specialist my concern was whether I would have to work weekends. I was told that I wouldn't, only to find out that there was an inventory one Sunday a month. The management is poor. My actual inventory manager worked out of the main warehouse. I can say he knew what he was doing and he was smart. He was also unprofessional and wasn't always very pleasant to work with. Having your manager make fun of you in front of other employees for not owning a car to get to meetings isn't very professional. Nobody there worked together and the hours were really bad.

Operations (Current Employee), BrooklynMay 4, 2013
Pros: pay, healthcare, vacation time.
Cons: to much buddy buddy in upper management, long days
Upper management has no clue what's going on especially in one warehouse, bosses are crooks and try to micro manage everyone.Only if the owner knew what was going on here.
