119 questions about working at Total Wine & More
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Total Wine & More a better place to work?A whole system upgrade to the technology within the store. A lot of the tech and systems used are archaic and more difficult than is needed. The theatro system is spotty most times, the Sam devices are generally really slow, the wifi is also spotty, the shipping is old, and also the registers are out of date. Modernization would improve the experience for both the customer and employee.

How do you feel about the future of Total Wine & More?With the margins they pull in (some of the wines sold are 5 dollar bottles and people pay 40 or more) money will never be a problem. Labor will be the only issue. Right now they dont address cost of living and so in many stores they are shorthanded. This means more burn out. And since they dont reward those who shoulder the burden. Key employees are lost.balso the lack of advancement outside of management makes retention impossible. If a sales person is good then they should be kept in sales and paid more. Not forced to move into management to deal with emails and metrics.

How do you feel about going to work each day at Total Wine & More?At the end I dreaded it. I liked quite a few of my coworkers but the managers were so unbearable. Too many employees didn't do their job so the bulk of the work fell on a few over-worked individuals.
