MERCHANDISER (Current Employee) –  Ogden, UTApril 16, 2019
This job is pretty good place to work. I've learned quite a bit about what merchandise pepsi deals with. The hours are nice and the people you work with is also great.
Pros
Listen to music while working.

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Cheyenne, WYFebruary 22, 2019
By far worse company I have worked for. Would rather promote family than somebody who has experience. If your not in on the inner circle you will not move up. Benefits are the only good thing up until they raised the rates without a pay increase. Your hr rate is laughable compared to other beverage company's. Shaddy business is always happening from selling out of date products or damaged. Beer side is even worse with out of date beer.
Pros
Cheap drinks
Cons
Any managment

Good company but you better know somebody to seriously advance
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMOctober 30, 2018
Admiral Beverage is a good company in terms of benefits (retirement/401k) but wages are lackluster. However, career advancement in the company only seams feasible if you know somebody. Nepotism is alive and well here and it's an uphill battle if you don't have somebody going to bat for you behind closed doors. Raises are sparse and borderline laughable. While the job itself isn't difficult mentally, it can take a physical toll on your body. Day to day operations can be mundane but if you enjoy working alone for the most part, it's not a bad gig. The job provided me with stability in terms of hours and benefits but that's the extent of it. While there are several people that make careers at Admiral for 20+ years, making it passed entry level proves to be difficult.
Pros
Nice people, good benefits, good job if you work well alone and generally appreciate time away from people.
Cons
Rampant nepotism, low wages that aren't competitive, lack of accountability and discipline for bad employees.

Sales work can be fun but tough.
Salesman (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTAugust 24, 2018
It is a competition based company between beverage companies. In order to be an effective salesman you should plan on utilizing negotiation skills as well as physical labor.

Merchandizing ok for entry level employees
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Great Falls, MTJuly 26, 2018
Ok place to work if you are interested in an entry level job. Some opportunities to move up into Sales if you are interested. Pay is basically minimum. Bonuses or rewards often promised and not fulfilled.

Management is a problem. It all streams down from them.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Idaho Falls, IDJuly 11, 2018
This is a great place to work if you are a mindless drone that doesn't mind getting treated with no respect and likes to be belittled by really anyone you encounter on a day to day basis. The actual work is not bad and can even be enjoyed. It is the pretentious micro-managing by both the company managers and the store managers that is so ridiculous. Specifically the merchandising manager, I have never come across someone who is so blatantly incompetent at their career with not a care towards any improvement. I would not suggest working here at all, I already know you deserve to be treated better than you will be treated here.

Room for Advancement
Truck Help (Current Employee) –  Pocatello, IDJune 20, 2018
Starting out as truck help gives you multiple opportunities to advance. You have the potential to drive the truck yourself or to become a merchandiser. The job is straightforward but requires practice. You visit a lot of the same places, which is helpful; you can establish a good customer relationship.
Pros
Straightforward
Cons
On hands and knees sometimes

Fast Paced, fun place to work
Route Driver and Utility (Former Employee) –  Cheyenne, WYJune 14, 2018
Overall a pretty fun place to work. You will work hard, but they make it fun. Pay isn't the greatest, especially for someone with a CDL. But it could be worse!

Labor demanding, but builds character and responsibility.
Warehouse worker (Former Employee) –  Santa Fe, NMJune 14, 2018
A typical day at work for me consisted of fixing breakage and helping with whatever my manager asked me to. I learned a lot about the beverage business and work in a warehouse. I also learned how important it is to practice safety while working in a warehouse. All of my fellow employees were very helpful and caring individuals, as were my managers. The hardest part of the job is that you are constantly working and your tasks are labor heavy. The most enjoyable part of your job is friendly coworkers and managers.
Pros

Cons

Good benefits , pay needs to be more competitive
Route Driver (Current Employee) –  Idaho Falls, IDMay 17, 2018
Love working here . But hours are cut and hourly rate could be better for all they ask us to do. Management is knowledgeable and helps you out . Owner needs to pay more fairly . Stop using excuses for pay because of branch location and cost of living . Truck drivers are becoming harder to find and need to be treated as such!!!
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Lack of overtime, pay could be better

Terrible culture and terrible people
Senior HR Manager (Former Employee) –  Casper, WYApril 9, 2018
Terrible leadership who only value a few of their employees. The rest - they could care less about. My prior boss was fantastic. He valued the work you did and rewarded you accordingly. My last 'boss' was a dictator who only wanted to protect herself and could care less about the TEAM.
Pros
none.
Cons
Leadership.

Hands down the worst managed company in Salt Lake City.
Sales Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTMarch 27, 2018
The managers at the plant in Salt Lake City literally Do nothing and expect the most. They were constantly setting up pointless meetings every week which would only make your work day even more stressful.. you got nothing out of the meeting other then them stressing about hitting numbers and pushing extra sales. They don’t care about home life balance at all. On top of that they do not appreciate their employees one bit. People come and go in this company like it’s a hotel! I worked 12-13 hours a day and they would still ask if I can work on weekends cause they couldn’t keep weekend merchandisers. I wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone unless they hit rock bottom and it’s the only place available.
Pros
Expired beer and soda if you’re into that.
Cons
Management. Run down facility. Pay

Not bad for a single person that can work all day with no Family
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Ogden, UTMarch 21, 2018
Started off as a great place to work. Carrer advancements were there but then new management came in and changed everything. Advancements aren't there and more and salary + commission employees haven't had a raise in years. They justified the lower pay compared to competitors by stating that the benefits package better than the competitors but they didn't evolve when the competition changed theirs. Expect to work long hours with the mentality that your job is more important than your family. Perfect job for a single kid not going to school with no family.
Pros
Decent Benefits package, discounts on product. Some positions have weekends off. Co-workers were good to work with.
Cons
No real time for lunch, no pay raises in years for salary and commission employees. Long hours.
