You are just a number. Management could care less about any issues you are having. They will force you to only have a life for 8 hours of your day to sleep, eat and do anything personal outside of work

Good company to work for.

Producing a good quality beer would be fun and working as a team. Keeping a safe environment working in the plant at all times. Getting a good run every day or night. I would say that there's any thing bad to say it is a great company to work for.

They treat you like a slave. Your just a number.

Good pay but not worth the amount they make you work. Yes I said make you work. They can FORCE you to work pretty much whenever they want. Weekends, 12 hour shifts. It makes for a uneasy feeling constantly wondering if you will be forced to stay late or work the entire weekend

Pros

Good pay

Cons

No personal life

Great place to get experience

Overall it’s a great company to work for. Comp and benefits are competitive, opportunity for growth and development are there and in my experience all the managers I reported to seemed to genuinely care about my development.

Pros

Comp, flexibility, monthly beer allotment.

Cons

Extremely stressful work environment. Whether you’re in the brewery or corporate office, your calendar will be always triple booked.

Decent place to work

Molson Coors is a decent place to work. The pay and benefits are average for the industry, but they are good when compared to flipping burgers. The management is lacking and a little old fashioned. Work from home is not a thing unless you are not an essential employee. This is not surprising since this is a manufacturing plant where you need to be physically present. The work life balance is lacking and you are expected to be on call or available to cover a shift at a moments notice. The most difficult part of the job is working with bad management, and old or broken equipment, nothing here is new and you are always expected to be a miracle worker. The best part of the job is the variety of tasks and ability to gain a wide range of experience. It's definitely worth working here for a while just to see the place.

Pros

Decent pay, consistent work, overtime, decent benefits

Cons

management expectations, work life balance

Live To Work

You have no life outside of work. You are forced to work 12hr shift 6 days a week. They don’t care about your family. Working there is like a soap opera it’s more drama then a little bit. If you are not liked by your co workers or kiss up to supervisor. You can kiss promotion bye bye. All money ain’t good money if you have to give up on your own personal life.

Pros

Money

Cons

Judgement/ Forced Work

Great people to work with

A manager that listens and cares about how you are doing as a person, not just treated like a cog in the wheel. Good teammates. 4-4 schedule leaves a lot of time for enjoying life outside work

Nice perks with in office bars

If you love beer then the free or discounted beer perks is good. There were in office bars that you could meet in or socialize at. Lots of politics made it hard to work or stay focused on following through on projects.

My team is productive and always acknowledge for their performance.

Great place to work, advancement is always there. Good crew teammates. Vacation and family time off is always there. Good to work for a company that understands that certain things are more important than just work.

Great pay, and benefits

Cons

None

Forced labor

Terrible place to work for. You have no life. Forced overtime every day. 60 hours plus. It's really sad. Understaffed and they think they have to many employees. Everything is about making money and that's it. They do not value there employees well being here mentally and physically. I would never recommend anyone to work here. I won't be here much longer.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

No work life balance

All Around Good Place

I was with the company for 4 years in various roles. Most jobs are shift work. I had fun working there and the pay was fair for the work. There was not much room to develop and grow within the company.

Pros

Decent pay, free beer

Cons

Little advancement opportunities

It's a fast paced work environment. Days can be long depending on the route. Alot of heavy lifting taking kegs and cases up and down stairs. overall it's a good company as long as you have a good work ethic and don't mind hours.

Pros

Fast paced, helpful co workers

Cons

Alot of heavy lifting, long hours

A total man's world

I worked here as a female sales rep - it was a flexible job with lots of opportunities for fun. Not a great job if you're not into the super late night party scene. Opportunities to advance if you play by the rules of the "man's world."

Pros

Great compensation and flexible

Cons

Advancement required tolerating unwelcome behavior

Great Coors culture

Great company to work for. Unfortunately, the changing of the old guard really shook things up for the worst. Lost a great Colorado culture in the short sidedness of the new CEO. Tons of great talent was able to walk out the door. Very old school thinking on forcing HQ to Milwaukee and Chicago from Denver and Golden. Sad times for the Coors family and their legacy in the beer business as they bow down to board members and inept CEOs to make dumb strategic decisions.

Pros

World class culture. Fun place to work

Cons

Turned into Corp followers vs industry leaders

Fun, challenging industry and good people.

I've had a great time in my five years here. Most everyone is nice and it's been a lot of fun so far. You get to attend some cool events at times, and you get free beer every month!

Pros

Free beer, good people

Cons

Service based jobs have little-to-no chance for advancement.

Great experience with one of the largest and wealthiest companies in the world, but get ready for hard work and stressful times.

The experience was amazing in many ways. The perks were great, and though many people may focus on that, they didn't make the job what it should have been. Upper management is stuck up, stuck in their ways, and unwilling to take constructive and productive feedback. Whenever I did give feedback, I felt like someone was watching me. They are very hard to talk to. Distributors for the most part are amazing to work with, still stuck in their old "this is how we have always done beer" ways, but are slowly learning to adapt. Co workers were great, diverse to some degree (could definitely be more diverse) but there is definitely drama in all corners of the company. Hard to get away from. The job itself is difficult, stressful, time consuming but rewarding when you accomplish your objectives. Bonuses depend on the market, so don't be fooled by your individual performance - though your performance is what's most important. Don't ignore that you havw goals to hit and you will DEFINITELY hear about it if you slack. Also, HR is terrible. They dont function the way you would think. Not as helpful and very passive aggressive. So any personal/internal issues may eventually be known throughout the region. Just be weary.

Pros

Perks, Free beer, Tickets and experiences are the best of all, Great for the resume Experience is incredible all things considered

Cons

Pay isn't what it should be. Upper management isn't great, stuck up and full of themselves. Work life balance is definitely, BY NO MEANS balanced. Expect hard work, very little recognition and some back stabbing by employees with years of employment.
