Cross Class Warehouse (Current Employee) – Repack Department – July 14, 2015
We process anywhere from 20,000 to 30,000 cases and 10,000 to 15,000 bottles through the system for shipment every night. I am in the repack department handling bottle orders. I am trained for quality control and inventory that must be done every night. My managers are understanding of the stress this environment may cause and are willing to make adjustment to the lineup to accommodate. Everyone knows we are a team regardless of what department because actions can domino affect through out the warehouse. The most enjoyable part of my day is product knowledge because seem to notice something different everyday.

short breaks/lunch, hardly no room for improvement/promotion, repetitive work, graveyard shift
Sales Representative and Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – June 24, 2015
Not every day is the same, work early in the morning but get off early. I personally had a wonderful supervisor but not every employee is the same. I worked with really fun people and learned a lot about the sales side of the wine and spirits industry.
On-Premise Broad Market Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – June 17, 2015
I realized it was time to look for a new job when, during a sales appreciation luncheon, the Vice President of the company was asked what was being done to improve company morale. His response was, "Nothing, be happy you have a job." I will admit the pay is good but, for being a family owned company, management has a real ego trip and seems to have forgotten that their employees are the reason the company has such a good reputation.
Great job for those who are self sufficient.
Management is out of touch with the market, and like to rule with threats.
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – April 30, 2015
What I learned is I needed additonal challenges and growth from a company. I learned that you must be proactive in your career. Keep a updated Linkedin profile and make sure your resume is always updated with new accomplishments. Keep a on-going list of goals to achieve!
Accounting/Data Entry Clerk Temporary Job Service (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – April 25, 2015
I worked in the chain store department in warehouse and responsible for collecting from chain store accounts who owed lots of money. Every month I sent the same packet of invoices to one chain store asking for payment, My supervisor got a check for a million dollars with a note saying that Wendy is very persistent, month after month, her envelope of invoices would show up, until they paid it.
Awesome company, great people, fun industry to be a part of.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Union City, CA – April 21, 2015
With Young's Market Company I loved the the positive vibes within management and the work place. I enjoyed going to work everyday. The wine and liquor industry was fun engaging and always something new. Obtaining knowledge of wine and liquor was enjoyable, interesting, and very useful. Making stores shine and the appreciation of my retailers as well as co-workers made everyday enjoyable.
Constant inentives, good people, supplier support, and being a part of a fun engaging, growing industry.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Arizon – January 30, 2015
Position: Territory Manager Learned a lot about the Spirit Industry/ management has taught me a lot about the spirit business and managing employees. I could not ask for a better group of co-workers to work for. They are very inspiring and competitive. I would have to say the hardest part about the job is not having the right tools. The most enjoyable part about the job is meeting new people every day and building that relationship with them. I would also say the distillery trips, expense account to entertain clients/ customers.
Gas Card, Expense Account, Distillery Trips, Samples
Sales Representative and Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Simi Valley, CA – September 2, 2014
Typical day is waking up early (4am to 6am) to start your day. Seeing 6-8 accounts per day. Dusting of bottles, putting bottles on shelf, hanging coupons, stocking coldbox, etc. You will learn basic sales techniques and territory management skills. The "upper management" at this company is a joke. They are unreachable and will not talk to you if you are someone who works under them. They have unrealistic expectations and put alot of un-needed pressure on you. The company as a whole is also technology challenged as they use a bunch of outdated systems and techniques. Co-workers are sometimes good, sometimes bad. The hardest part of the job is the physical lifting, bending, kneeling, etc. It takes it toll on you after a while. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a flexible schedule.
Flexible Work Schedule, Paid Holidays and Vacation, Beverage Samples
Management, training, being micro managed, ridiculous expectations, Pay

Independent Contract Recruiter (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – May 2, 2014
Young's is a terrific company. Their history and success is undeniable. They've been around well over 100 years and for good reason. My experiences with their management team and HR staff has been tremendous and I would say anyone who works for them is in good hands.
Workdays are busy. I work remotely so I balance my phone screens and sourcing for convenient times and when would be most effective. The greatest challenges in this role have always been in identifying extremely niche high level executives for positions outside of my own metro. But it inspired creativity in sourcing methods and innovative approaches. That in itself has taught me a great deal in the recruiting world. The liquor industry is one of the most profitable of all industries, so it's never a bad idea to plan a career in that direction.
Remote working, Great leadership, Reasonable expectations, Ability to manage your own process, Terrific Administrative support
