Numbers driven company out of touch with employee's and customers needs
Portfolio Manager (Current Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCJanuary 10, 2019
I would advise anyone trying to get into the spirits industry to consider this company. However pay is significantly under average and work load is high. Micromanagement is the leadership here.
Pros
Liquor industry
Cons
Micromanagement, Old out of touch leadership

Customer Care Manager (Current Employee) –  Lakeland, FLJanuary 10, 2019
SGWS provides the possibility to put your mark on the company, in a positive way. The company is large so the benefits package is great however it is small enough that you don't feel you're a 'number.' Leadership is focused on bottom line activities but in the same breath promote a culture of learning and collaboration.
Pros
Collaborative, positive
Cons
Holiday schedule is rough

Senior Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARJanuary 6, 2019
Great place for entry level work. I was able to learn how to operate a ReachTruck which required the Company to send me to Dallas Texas also for SAP.
Most enjoyable part of my job allowed me to travel to other plants and seek more experience with their systems.

Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJanuary 3, 2019
Clock in at 3pm, pick orders until no orders are left for the day. Usually done with all the orders by 4-7am depending on the day.
Fast paced, pay attention, riding different forklifts/pallet jacks. Management was good, always helpful with anything they can. The hardest part of the job was the hours and fast case. The most enjoyable part was getting paid after working a lot of hours.

Great work place but lazy managment
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  FloaterDecember 31, 2018
An awesome place to work management made it difficult to do job correctly due to bad attitude and rude personality's. All coworkers got along almost like family. Everyone did the job they had too, sometimes even helped others. Would love to work at a place likr this again.

abusive management
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLDecember 27, 2018
extremely uncomfortable work environment, sexist women and rampant favoritism anti male work environment. All of management is complacent and just collect pay check since they have no hope of moving up.

An "OK" place to work
Director (Current Employee) –  Oakland, CADecember 26, 2018
This isn't an organization that will push you to excel, but they will push you to make sales goals! They primarily promote from within and as such you'll often be working with people that have never worked anywhere else in their careers or have never been in a different industry. Leadership is changing, but is largely out of touch with the organization as a whole and promotes an outdated work environment and culture. The people who are in the trenches doing the work are nice, but often lacking in experience with regard to best practices and the tools the organization uses are at least 20 years behind the times.
Pros
Hospitality industry means a lot of nice dinners and events
Cons
A lot of travel is often required, benefits are not in line with size of organization (ex. 401k takes 5 years to vest), most offices are seriously outdated and poorly organized

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Union City, CADecember 7, 2018
The most changeling aspect of the job was achieving sales targets which were often a bit overly aggressive. The camaraderie is fantastic as the working culture at SGWS something special. In a typical day I managed numbers, managers and salespeople. I also made sales calls on my own and assisted my sales reps in doing the same.
