Plant Engineer (Former Employee) - Loretto, KY - July 14, 2019
The Maker's campus is one of the most beautiful places anyone could ever hope to work. It welcomes lots of visitors every day to see how the iconic product is made. The people are very special, and take lots of pride in what they do.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) - Chicago, IL - June 9, 2019
Fun place to work, supportive team members. Helps you learn how to interact with others better and promote sales. A typical day at work would be setting up, learning about product before the event, and assessing inventories and customers at the end of the day. Then reporting to point person all this information through a survey.
Equipment Owner 2 (Current Employee) - Frankfort, KY - March 9, 2019
Work can be challenging. As an equipment owner you have to be able to calculate different types of materials used in the processing and production of a product. You also have to be able to troubleshoot problems with equipment in order to keep production going.
Senior management is a nightmare. There is no clear direction given, simply chase the shiny object until the leaders tell you to chase something else. All VP's seem to have different agendas and they are often conflicting.
Teams are far too lean and leaders won't even consider hiring more people who can actually do the work.
The culture is cutthroat and toxic. Doesn't matter the location.
The people, who actually do the work, are talented, caring and overall a pleasure to work with. Too bad they are often treated poorly and taken for granted by their senior leaders.
Wake up Beam! You were once a great company with great brands. Put some real energy in to fixing the culture, not just a half-assed HR campaign. It starts at the top. Hold your leaders accountable for their behavior. Hire leaders who really care about people and their development.
RECEIVING/ MT CASE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) - Frankfort, KY - February 8, 2019
Beam Suntory is a good company. It is a unionized environment, so it's crucial to know how to work with employees.
The Frankfort plant continues to grow, potentially bottling 15 million cases this year alone.
People are pretty cooperative, but the management can stereotype people.
Edge LFL (Former Employee) - Detroit, MI - February 7, 2019
Love the spirits industry and learned a lot working for a top 5 supplier over the past 2 years. My position was recently dissolved, but the environment at Beam Suntory is one that I will look for in my next employer.
Very Cut Throat Environment with extremely long hours
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) - Louisville - January 28, 2019
You are expected to work weekends, holidays, and vacations if you are a salary employee. Hours are typically 10+ per day. Management can pretty much do whatever they want and complaints to HR are ignored. Managers are allowed to yell at and intimidate their employees. There is NO family/work balance.
