Good company but you better know somebody to seriously advance
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – October 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.
Nice people, good benefits, good job if you work well alone and generally appreciate time away from people.
Rampant nepotism, low wages that aren't competitive, lack of accountability and discipline for bad employees.
