Terrible Company to Work for
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 17, 2018
They don't care about you. All they want you to do is follow and stay silent.They are not afraid to take commissions away from you and will offer certain commissions and change parameters if they think you will make too much or if it benefits them more. No care for the worker bees, managment only cares about themselves. Management will also not offer help or solutions, only demand that work be done...
Pros
Free lunches and free swag at times.
Cons
No care for the working man...

Toxic work environment after merger
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 5, 2018
Following the merger with an east-coast liquor distributor, the workplace became quite toxic. People who left the company would not have their old roles filled, rumors of entire departments leaving for the shared services center, as well as petty games played by non-sales management.

It was like walking on egg shells every day.

Office staff were not treated like adults by HR or management.
Pros
Nice office
Cons
Toxic work environment

Not for me
Sales Consultant- Liquor/Wine/Beer (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNJuly 26, 2018
This position wasn't for me. I didn't have all the answers when I took the job and the insurance was through the roof for my family who had medical conditions.

Internship - wasn't that great
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Cicero, ILJuly 16, 2018
They didn't manage traveling well for the interns and made them travel to areas where people lived already. I lived in the suburbs and they would make me drive to Chicago and then make a person from Chicago go to the suburbs. Made no sense to me but i went along with it.

Growth!
SALES DEVELOPMENT REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 3, 2018
Im lost for words on how a company so large can treat their customers and employees in such manner. Many lies and false promises, the company is currently focused on growing the business rather then taking care of its customers deliveries and billing errors. Lots of slamming, extra orders being delivered to accounts without approval of customers, this makes an reps job difficult because we are the face of the company!
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
No 401 match, No car allowance, No milage reimbursement, No cell phone customers call you day and night on your personal phone, expensive medical costs, lack of leadership support

Great place to work.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Carbondale, ILJune 21, 2018
This is a great job that is relatively easy. The employers are protected by the union which helps with pay and benefits. I would definitely recommend this job. It requires a lot of driving and some manual labor.
Cons
No vehicle reimbursement.

Relaxed
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Sandston, VAJune 6, 2018
It's a relaxed environment, albeit still production-based. You're guaranteed on the day shift overtime every week. There's great management there. I'd say the pay is competitive with other warehouses in the area, but I'd rather they'd pay more.
Pros
Guaranteed overtime every week
Cons
Wages

Alcohol sales is tougher than it looks
Premium Account Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 6, 2018
Overall, a pretty good place to work if you're interested in getting into route sales. An entry-level rep will get plenty of management coaching and there are lots of opportunities to move around within the company once you've proven yourself...
