Great job.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLDecember 23, 2018
As a driver I enjoyed working at Breakthru. Four days on - three days off. Payed well for job. Good quality management team. I would consider it the best job I have had. I would work for them again if given a chance.
Pros
Time worked vs. time off.
Cons
Long work days.

Decent place to work if a manager is a fan...
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLNovember 4, 2018
Covers all the bases on compensation package when hired. How much you have the potential to make? Depends on the territory. There are reps that scrape by and reps that have 2/3 of the accounts and make more with less hours in the middle. One rep could struggle to make 45k while another made 90 K. The culture initially was better and it was more "one team and one dream", but then the big managers started doing whatever suited them and living the life on the company tab... it became a tale of two cities. People who had been there for years, who deserved a promotion were getting looked over and passed by for younger, better looking people with zero experience. This led to the younger crowd getting a high sense of entitlement and an oh well attitude...because they knew they wouldn't be fired. How well the job was done? Who cares! So if you worked at a bar and had a lot of friends, you could easily never be a sales rep first. Just need to be a "mixologist" or a young female with minimal experience because they are friends with someone in management. That's when morale changed and it all went downhill, which is why they are merging/sold to Republic National.
Pros
Used to be a lot of fun at work, training was solid, made some great relationships
Cons
Babysitting meetings every Friday, career advancement, warehouse and delivery were awful typically

Great company to work for, rewarding and fun.
Area Manager, Package Division (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLOctober 10, 2018
Meeting with customers on a daily basis to sell and promote company and supplier brands. Always something different everyday which makes your days enjoyable and fast paced. Company offers sales training and product training to prepare you for success. Management team is reliable and available for support and vested in your success. Most enjoyable part of the job is building relationships and selling great brands and introducing new and exciting brands to the market.
Pros
Independent sales minimal supervision.

Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) –  DelawareOctober 9, 2018
Poor management
moral is bad
equipment always falling apart.
Employees do what ever they want and work at there own pace. And you really cant say much unless you want HR on your back.

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

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...

Corporate business through and through
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Denver, COMay 21, 2018
At the end of the day, the only thing that matters to anyone at this company is making sure the people who are at the top get paid. I have been with this company for three and half years, and for some reason there seems to be a lack of common sense about the day to day duties of many departments from the higher ups. When policies come down from corporate board meetings telling you to change what you are doing and have been doing (and it's working for both you and the account you are assigned) for as long as you have been working for this company, and all of the sudden your job becomes your biggest stressor, you know something can't be right about that. However, you don't have a say in how that works, even though you are the one who handles the product every day and sees the accounts everyday. Nope, your work pattern and work practices are dictated by people who see more of the golf course and fancy dinners than they do the actual accounts. Yet, they know exactly what needs to be done to make changes to "better effect company growth and client relations".
Pros
Fun Industry to work in
Cons
Corporate greed, no regard for actual HANDS ON job practices

Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 18, 2018
Not a horrible company. No connection with employees. Lots of trips you can win but management has no control over the politics that goes on when it comes to promoting hard working employees.
Pros
good compensation
Cons
no growth for minorities

Poor work conditions, poor management. The manager down south is unbelievably lazy. You work more hours than what was said. Loads are always late to yard give you impossible times to do the job.
Pros
Is an easy job
Cons
Everything about the job.
