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

Southern Wine and Spirits is an amazing company that takes the time to truly educate all employees in all areas.
Pernod Ricard Portfolio Manager (Current Employee), RochesterMay 14, 2014
Pros: expense account, cell phone and car allowence.
Cons: none other than holiday hours.
Each work day is different. I really don't have a set schedule, things can change at any second. You need to be able to multi task and attend to any issues immediately. I have had several management classes and extensive education on brand knowledge. At Southern Wine and Spirits we are all a family. We all work together daily and help each other when – more... need be. They hardest part of the job is during the Holiday season. As you can imagine it is a very busy time of year during October, November and December. It is hard to actually enjoy the holidays because its our busy season. Other than that I its a great company to work for! – less

n/a (Former Employee), n/aFebruary 13, 2014
Pros: work enviourment, very respected amongst customers, large market share
Cons: currently re-organizing and going through layoffs, slow to embrace mondern pratices and technology
Company was known for stability and job security, but is going through reorganization right now. I still really respect executive management and their intelligence and fairness. Downside was lack of training provided and some seemingly, un-accountable personnel. Positives were camaraderie. Their was a "family" aspect to the culture. However, with re-organization, – more... this is changing. Overall, a great company. If you can get in and stay in, the benefits and culture are great. – less
