Great place to work
IT - Application Support (Current Employee) –  Kingston, MAAugust 9, 2018
Love working at SFC. Familiy owned and family like work atmosphere. Excellent benefits package.

Everyone is focused on making the company the best group of beverage wholesalers in the world through hard work and innovative use of technology.

Dont work here !
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Cerritos, CAJune 8, 2018
Poor management all around It is so bad its laughable. Bullying, deception, and game playing are are common unless you're on the inside. Would you want to chance that ? The general manager in Cerritos is as inexperenced and immature as a manager can be. Way too young, extremely unrully, and completely lacks integrity and leadership skills. Management is mostly made up from nepotism. A lot of customers have dropped them. Their beer portfolio is very weak also.
Pros
Beer industry is fun
Cons
Poor managment

Horrible place to work
Driver (Former Employee) –  Port EwenMay 28, 2018
Management Wants you to learn route very quick if not you get frowned upon. You work be able to spend time with your family. And hours changed so much one day you have to be there at 7am then the next day it would be 5am and everyone rush to finish. I would never recommend this job to anyone unless you you don’t mind throwing your back out from lifting heavy kegs of beer up and down someone horribly built caller and or you want a divorce.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Throwing your back out and no home time

Kiss your personal life goodbye
Driver Helper (Former Employee) –  Everett, MAMay 2, 2018
Worst company I’ve ever worked for. If you have a family or want to have a personal life stay away from this company you will be working at least 10 hours a day. Management doesn’t care about the workers wellbeing they just want you to get the job done as fast as possible safety comes second.
Pros
Non
Cons
Bad management, low pay, incompetent coworkers, too many forced hours

Driver CDL-A (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMarch 21, 2018
There's opportunity to make money but you're taking your chances getting behind the wheel and driving one of their trucks that are non compliant with DOT regulations. Co workers were Kool but some helpers weren't worth the help. Watch your own hours because you'll get hours but if you go over regulated hours and get into an accident, it's on YOU not the company!!! Don't say you didn't get warned. For the record, I'm not writting this down because I'm a disgruntled worker. I'm writting this to protect someone that cares about their license and future....
Pros
Definitely will get 12-14 a day
Cons
Trucks are not maintained. Non compliant with DOT. Some helpers are lazy

Awful workplace
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  NHMarch 14, 2018
Horrible workplace. This is a company that expects way too much and doesn’t give anything in return. Management is clueless when it comes to the wants and needs of the market. Veterans get favored while new employees get poorly treated. Wouldn’t recommend working here to anyone.
Pros
Beer industry great
Cons
Management is terrible, under paid and appreciated, getting time off is almost impossible

Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  NYC, NYMarch 13, 2018
Bro-culture with a lack of direction from managers. Upper management is just as clueless when it comes to understanding of the feet on the street. Terrible compensation for a billion dollar corporation. If you like being miserable, this is the place for you.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

Fun place to work, get to see a lot of places and meet some pretty awesome people, also meet some really weird ones as well
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAMarch 3, 2018
Typical day starts at 5am, get to the shuttle at 5:45 and start receiving the days product. From there you begin your route and basically follow a pre determined route that sometimes makes zero sense, but you have the ability to change it on the fly.
Pros
Good insurance, Not under a microscope, move at your own pace (but don’t miss your timed stops I.E grocerie stores)
Cons
Low pay for area but higher than most other jobs around.

Ok to work there
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  MaineJanuary 20, 2018
No room for advancement at the time of my notice. Fast paced but very hard work for your compensation. Managers were nice but it was very fly by the seat of your pants. Hard market to corner in this state.

Good starter job
Sales (Current Employee) –  MassachusettsJanuary 11, 2018
SFC is a good place to start your career if you are willing to roll up your sleeves and work hard. People are able to quickly gain exposure to many areas and it's not uncommon to wear multiple hats. This is great for someone's first job, however it's very difficult to progress in the company. Often salary is not commensurate of position or level of responsibility.

There are some really great, collaborative, and smart people throughout the organization that are working on solving problems, but this is diminished by ownership's inability to progress quickly enough. With the new CEO/President there is hope.
Pros
Good starter job, exposure, smart people, good benefits, new CEO/President
Cons
Disconnected ownership, low pay, outdated work policies

Fast-paced work environment with various advancement opportunities
Former Operations Employee (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 11, 2018
You don't have to be a craft beer lover to succeed at this company. There are many different types of jobs that become available in sales, operations, analytics, etc. Whether you're fresh out of school or looking to make a strategic move within your chosen field, there are opportunities that come along that allow for competition between outside candidates and employees who want to advance.
Pros
Benefits (including healthcare); discounted beer
Cons
Physical work, dependent upon job title (could also be a pro)

A productive, fun environment with great work perks and good beer.
Management (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 10, 2018
Each position differs throughout the company. However, teamwork and cross-departmental communications are key to our organization. The culture can be competitive at times but also laid back in a sense.
Pros
Beer, chair massages, team lunches & events, great health plan, and employees being rewarded for hard work!
Cons
No 401K and hard to keep up with growth (not a bad thing but can make for some long hours).

Fun Industry, Good People
Sales (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 10, 2018
Salaries are below market rates but benefits are good. Ownership/management can be disconnected so it is important to balance their asks with market needs. People are regularly interrupted during meetings. Big personalities are preferred over quieter people. There are few career advancement opportunities within the company so co-workers can become defensive of their position. Some co-workers gather for beer tastings which is always fun and builds the team up! At the end of the day, Sheehan Family Companies is what you make of it.
Pros
Product tastings, health insurance
Cons
Low employee development, management

This is a great place to work! I gained a lot of experience here. Everyone in the office is friendly and willing to help each other. I was just an intern but I would absolutely recommend others to work here.They provide great benefits and paid vacation to their full time employees.

Corporate Staff (Current Employee) –  Kingston, MAJanuary 9, 2018
I love working at SFC - the company really takes care of its people and the work is interesting and challenging. Hard work is greatly rewarded and working in the beer industry is very exciting to be a part of. Every day is different and there's a very 'all hands on deck' mindset, where people pitch in to different areas and help each other out. It's cool to learn about different aspects of the business! It's the beer business - so the culture is professional but laid-back and fun! It's also awesome being a part of such a large company with distributor locations across the country. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with all of our people! I'm proud to be a part of a company with such strong values and heritage.
Pros
beer business, great benefits, the people
Cons
can't think of any!

Manager creates a hostile work enviroment
Driver (Former Employee) –  Cerritos, CANovember 2, 2017
The manager drowns in a glass of water! Has no integrity! Disrespectful to all employees! No respect or gratitude for good employees! The job is not bad @ all but when you have a manager that absolutely has NO INTEGRITY what's so ever & creates a hostile work environment makes it hard to stay! The benefits are Great! The pay is mediocre. The fact that it's a union shop doesn't make it better. Great staff as far as the warehouse & drivers! Management needs to learn a lot! Young PUNK running the show! & the the big cheese even worse! Companies that you deal with hates the company & since the driver is the face if the company you take the brunt of it!

No leadership
Manager (Current Employee) –  Kingston, MAMay 17, 2017
Every month there are new mandates and systems to replace a mandate from a prior month. Cannot stick to one strategy for more than a few months. Leadership unable to make smart business decisions due to owner appeasement whose whims change daily. No plans for the future.
Pros
Great health insurance
Cons
Leadsership is poor
