Good company to work for if you like being a work horse.
Chain territory manager (Former Employee), Cerritos, CaOctober 7, 2014
Pros: monthly incentives to chase $$, good benefits
Cons: back breaking work, micro managed
Overall I liked my management and the benefits the company offered, however in this position we are work horses and seen as free labor to the retailers we sell to. At the end of the day, not worth the day to day back breaking work you have to do for the pay you receive.

Fun place to work and very stable industry if you are organized
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Louisville, KYAugust 18, 2014
Pros: selling alcohol, training, samples, trips, incentives
Cons: low income at first, long hours during holiday season
I did very well with this company. Unfortunately, like many companies I had to start at the bottom and work my way up. I was accustomed to making a much higher income than what I was started off at and could not afford to stay on board. If given more time, I would have generated higher income. The people were very helpful, positive, and it is one of – more... the best places to work I've ever been employed with. – less

Not as glamours as it sounds
Chain Territory Manager (Former Employee), Temecula, CAJuly 7, 2014
Pros: great trips and prizes when they finally decided to be awarded, free wine and liquor
Cons: super early mornings, irregular shifts, tons of time on the road in your personal car...150, 000 miles in 3.5 years
High pressure sales job, extremely political. Non-traditional ways of promotions. Lots of driving and only offered flat rate for "vehicle allowance" regardless of miles traveled. Weekly meetings could be an hour drive from territory. No overtime, once a new VP was appointed basically told you had to get a laundry list of things done in 8 hours. Coming – more... from a company that continuously broke sales and volume records year after year, just everything went to the egos. – less
