They overwork you and dont offer a hand. Management wants no responsibility
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Suffern, NYAugust 14, 2018
I've been working here over 10 long years. The management was good. Then they changed people around and condensed sales routes. The good managers were smart and left or they were downsized. My new supervisor and manager give a question when you ask a question. There's no winning, no encouragement or positive feedback. Its only what you could have done better. They aren't happy even when you work extra hours. 7am I get texts asking questions. They want preplans and recaps. Late night promotions on occasion take more time away from my family. Never enough help merchandising. Products aren't ever rotated by merchandisers. You have to do alto of heavy lifting.
Pros
Beer sells it's self. Benefits are great
Cons
Management is terrible, late night meetings & promos. Heavy lifting

Okay to work for depending where
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Bronx, NYAugust 1, 2018
You get a huge workload. Many days I couldn't even take a lunch break. Depending on what department you work for, it could be either a blessing or a curse. The sales team does nothing but gossip all day about each other rather than doing actual work. My supervisor was extremely temperamental and could either be the nicest person ever or the biggest jerk you've ever met. He did do a great job at training me in what I needed though. They expect you to know a lot of company stuff nobody outside of the company would know. Overall an ok place, but not for me at all.
Pros
benefits, a lot of knowledge of the beer industry
Cons
huge workload, moody boss, work gossip

It’s a great company
Supervisor/Administrative Assistant/Asst Manager (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJune 29, 2018
I work three years for this company doing the job as a manager and being paid as a supervisor.I was told my shift on night operation will be 10 hours and was doing 12 plus hours.In Brooklyn warehouse they work you six days and paid you for 5 days and then ask you to take a day off.You get the day off at the time of the facility manager convenience.
Also if you are not a favorite of the facility manager then you have no place for growth.Its a great company to work for just the wrong people managing.

Sales: On Premise vs Chains
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Wyandanch, NYFebruary 23, 2018
On Premise: Low pay, but good management and work environment. Room for vertical movement within company.
Chains: God awful management. Stressful work environment. Absolute nightmare. Moderately acceptable pay, but not for the hours required. 6 days a week, but often 7 during peak season. Zero chance for advancement.

I would recommend on premise for the right person. Pay isn't the best, but the more you grow the route, the more money you make. Nice fringe benefits (Think: paid and encouraged liquid lunches. Good food constantly available and offered sometimes on the arm.) Most in on premise management are both laid back and supportive. It's like a family.

Chains is the anthesis. The astronomical turn-over rate should speak for itself.

Average Place to work
Sales Representatives (Current Employee) –  Wyandanch, NYFebruary 11, 2018
Compensation for the job is not enough.
Long hours, a lot of travel, very little time off.
The hardest part of the job was having to commute to the office every Friday and sit through meetings with little to no relevance to my position.

Unfair and always expecting more
RECYCLING SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Suffern, NYFebruary 8, 2018
A typical day at work is doing more than your job and seeing your upper management sit in the office and telling you that you aren't doing enough. I learned that even if you want to move up and do the required work to get a promotion, they still won't promote you but bring someone from a different warehouse with less experience. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the drama between employees and never having job security. The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving.

Beer business def fun environment
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Long Island, NYDecember 26, 2017
Loved working there learned a lot from my then supervisors. If your social you will gain a lot of relationships with your accounts and suppliers. The new GSM that came into office was terrible he is all about #'s and does not care to hear about your ideas to help with in the company. He also makes you feel below him as well as some supervisors. Most of them show face in the AM and then go home by the early afternoon and bark orders via email call or text
Pros
Free beer during promotions
Cons
non stop calls
