Too many managers and not enough employees. This place does not respect it's employees and they say one thing and do another. During covid they are telling employees there is no money while buying lavish things and properties.
working/life balance, no 401k match anymore, bad management
Jackson Family Wines is a large company and conveys the employee experience consistent with big enterprises. Employees with strong skill sets will have success with the company. There is a culture of competitiveness and confidence. The wines produced and the brands managed are some of the best in the industry.

Good place to work, management was short tempered but everyones working tons of overtime during harvest so its a bit understandable. Is super good about promoting internally.
Employees are expendable and are compensated as such. No real effort put in by management for career growth. Self-assessments required annually, but review by manager is rarely valuable. No structured plans for advancement and no tuition reimbursement offered. Mostly boys club of high-end executives versus army of low-paid, forced part-timers (= no benefits) who do the actual face-to-face work with customer base. Culture is "work hard for us every day, and we might do something nice for you down the line."
Some really great employees. Good wine.
Low pay, many who should receive benefits do not per legal loopholes, disappointing company culture (fake concern about putting employees first), poor top-down management/transparency.

Jobs at Jackson Family Wines
Company has grown too fast for developing and refining the different sections. It has a enough money to get through it's problems yet doesn't fix the basics. I personally was displeased with how much they throw away, and care less to organize or recycle. They have lacked S.O.P.s, guidance, and management. I remember countless days going machine to machine, ALL DAY, getting them "going" all the while the production personal just goof of and play on their phone. If you have the skills they need they will keep you and use the heck out of you. If not, they might let you go or just keep you in the corner to load machines and press buttons. Co workers were nice, caring, and easy going.
Benefits, 10 paid holidays, bonus
manamagement, demoralized environment, inconsistencies, wasteful
Impressive wineries, great story and work perks. Paid below market average. Free wine does not pay the bills. Fun co-workers. Woman owned company yet all upper management is men. Fast paced, dynamic and sales driven company.
Pay is below market average, boys club
Great place to work and great benefits. Even though it is just a place of work, everyone becomes a member of your family. Overall it is a family company and really knows how to treat their employees.
Benefits, Family Oriented Culture
I had a wonderful experience with Jackson Family Wines. Rewards and incentives were put in place for performance milestones. Learning the ins and outs of hospitality made me a much more articulate member of the work force.
no benefits for part time
A typical work day consisted of: serving customers wine, educating customers about wine, telling customers about our tasting room, serving food, shipping and selling wine and wine club memberships, do outreach to the surrounding wineries. I learned a lot about wine and sales. I made a lot of friends at my winery but had an issue with my management. Overall a great company to work for.
Free wine at the end of the night, discounts on wine at all JFW locations
Working every weekend
Believe what you hear - it is a toxic environment. My direct supervisor had the "shell game" down - look busy and throw the work on everyone else.
The salary - they HAVE to pay well. It is horrible to work there
Too many to list - if you value your soul - skip this organization
Jackson Family Wines hired me to assist the various contractors with the facility history and locations of underground utilities to expedite the remodel of the winery. This company knows exactly what it takes to rapidly refurbish a production facility and turn it in an efficient production facility. The upper management was easy to communicate with and did not have the standard "unreachable" attitude that most corporations seem to have.
Clear communications, good contractor contacts-Professional.
Did not have a chance to establish a relationship with the new chief of engeneering.
