A real good company to work for. Family oriented and respectful to your own family. Willing to work with you on any personal matters that may arise. Just an all around good company.

The goals set are often attainable- if you’re ok with bribing certain stores with money from your own pocket or tickets to a drake concert. If you try to complain about this unjustness you’re told that you don’t know your sales pitches well enough. Also, if you complain about anyone in a store sexually harassing you, likely the best you’ll get is a manager asking if you *really* want to move forward with your complaint because it will open a can of worms. I wouldn’t recommend this as a first job out of college, you get little to no respect as a human until you’re doing on premise or are an area manager.
Pros
Free alcohol

Very unfriendly and unprofessional management. Co-workers were un-happy. High turnover of staff. Company always promised chance for advantagement, only if you were in the old boys club.

The only good thing about working here is the 19/hr with overtime, the insurance plans, and the paid leave. If you are looking for a company that will treat you with any sort of respect or dignity, I suggest you keep looking. The supervisors are untouchable, despite constant harrassment, threats, and not knowing what their job is. The management is unqualified, and don't do anything to fix the situation. Favoritism based on race is a huge problem that'll likely never get fixed. It's almost impossible to transfer anywhere if you work nights as they would rather hire out for day crew. I 100% approve of the companies practice on the corporate level, But this particular location has numerous flaws.
Pros
Great benefits.
Cons
horrible leadership, favoritism, harrassment, and unachievable expectations.

They are very interested in diversity. They show you the expectations and expect perfection, they help you get there. Self motivation is key. Sales experience is necessary.
Pros
Freedom

Senior management has let this business go to shambles. They need to stop hiring VP’s that have no clue from off of the street. It only takes one person without skills to mess up the whole management team.

Sothern Glazers is a good place to work for great staff great employees they’re down to the point get in get out I just wish they weren’t closing, Merging with the Houston market is putting a lot of people out of jobs and with this time with the COVID-19 going on it’s really hard for people to find employment wish there was another way that they can work around just pushing us out

I worked for Southern a few years back, The management team that was in place was different than the one today. I can hostility say that i would truly enjoy the opportunity to re-join the company, the new team seems more focused on the employee. I believe i can be an asset to the team.

This people work you like slaves
Management needs training

Management lies

All they care about is $$ and not the employees

Once the company hires you they make you work nights schedule mandatory for new hires

There were always management issues.
Managements did not provide necessary training for their employees and expected them to be perfect at it.

Piece of advice: do not trust management even though they give you hope because the result will be deceiving.

The work environment was unsafe most of the time and no regard for the product being shipped. Respect between the workers and management was nonexistant.

The company tells you a completely different story once they wine and dine you in the beginning. They state your salary is much higher, opportunities are always available and fast advancement is achievable. None of this is true. You will be overworked and underpaid completely. While yes, you do learn the ins and outs of certain wines you don't get to use your knowledge often. Your job only consists of stocking wine and ordering for accounts. "Sales pitches" is once every blue moon. You also will NOT be working with one of the biggest winery, you will only be partners with them and merchandising their product.
