Palm Bay is a great company. Good place to work, family owned and operated. Located in Nassau county, very easy commute for those who live on the island or in the city.

Worse place to work
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYOctober 19, 2016
They hire you with a high salary and fire you after 3 months. Accounting department is the worst there. A bunch of rude jealous people. Save your self and stay away. They very heartless and cold hearted people.

Palm bay is a full service importer of fine wines with extensive qualities for beginning and medium level individuals.
Director of Wine Education (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 7, 2014
Palm bay is very positive when one wants to learn about the business. Daily work is intense and comprehensive. People are positive outside of the normal politics which happen in every company. I recommend Palm Bay as one will learn there and grow.

Administrative Assistant to Vice President (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYApril 13, 2012
A typical day at work would start by going in early organizing myself, my things to do list which is constantly modified throughout the day, prioritiez my tasks, phones rings, emails flow from sales reps and regional manager, Vice President, his business clients, I make sure VPs calendar is perfect and up to date, screen his calls, check VPs emails respond to most Emails, book his car, order his lunch, prepare presentation for meetings, create customized reports as requested by VP using Cognos system, make sure reports binders and all food is ordered for the next meeting, make sure travel is confirmed, hotel is booked and car is reserved for the day or week. Everyday at work is extremely busy and before I know it is time to go but I stay a little late to organize myself for the next day.
