YMCO - Field Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – March 22, 2019
a family owned business, upper management is very supportive, amazing co workers all around (from the sales side to the warehouse and customer service), sometimes stressful (just like any other job), you are rewarded and treated on how you perform, participate, etc -team work was key.
best part was being educated on the brands we represented (winery trips, etc) and the liberty to manage your territory accordingly for best results (do what you are suppose to do and everything is ok) -number should be in the black-always!
great benefits and educational programs
some late nights if you work on the On sale side (not often)
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 8, 2019
I enjoyed my employment at Young's. My co-workers were a great group of people. The outside and inside sales reps were awesome as well as the customer service reps. My department manager was nice but somewhat uninformed about quite a few things. There's a large problem with communication within departments. EXCELLENT COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS! EXPENSIVE but excellent.
Compensation an benefits, free wine and spirits, free lunches, great co-workers.
Express Store Manager (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – March 6, 2019
Started off pretty well, and ended up turning out to be another good old boys club where women don't get to advance. There is potential here, but upper management needs to pull their heads out and see what's going on around them.
District Manager (Former Employee) – North Bay, CA – January 24, 2019
I loved this job as well as the incredible coworkers I had, however, the training is little if not none at all. "make it happen" seems to be the direction you'll get when you reach out for support. But you are able to be very autonomous and have a somewhat flexible schedule. I loved the level of competition and the high energy but many coworkers would say the stress level is unmanageable.
Sales Rep Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Tustin, CA – January 15, 2019
You have to work pretty hard to make good money. If you want to advance you're going to have to work even harder and count on doing more than what is expected in your job title. Good perks and hours though.
Marketing Manager, Western Edge Wine Division (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 3, 2018
Young's Market Company is a 100+ year old family owned company that has excellence and integrity as core values. While opportunities for advancement within the region in which I worked were limited, the company was nonetheless excellent and I happily worked there for nearly a decade.
Senior VP, Director of HR (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – December 3, 2018
I worked my way through the system in a family-owned company. I started as a recruiter and worked my way to leading the Human Resource Function. The people are hardworking and dedicated to the business; the leadership was transitioning from one generation to another and wanted a different direction for the organization. It was a great place to work through the years going through the system - the last years was difficult to see a new culture evolving - the old was geared toward work hard and have fun, the people were the greatest asset, take care of them.
Sales (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 21, 2018
Company is going down the toilet. Major changes with competitors merging and suppliers leaving has been horrible for business. Used to get 2% raises every year. 2017 was such a horrible year that nobody received a raise. Recently they have been terminating a lot of people.
Advice to Management Merge with Breakthru.
Advice for jobseekers: Go to Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits or Breakthru Beverage. I worked for Southern and loved it. Better health benefits, better work parties, lots of wine/liquor bottles given to employees, and they promote from within.
Each day is different from the last. Fun work events with clients.
District Trainer and Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – November 15, 2018
-A typical say is spent entirely in the field. Visiting 6-8 accounts each day with the goal of increasing brand representation and selling in additional product. -I learned about the wine and spirits industry and the different buying patterns and what made our brands superior to the competition. -Management was responsible for a large number of accounts across Southern California. Focused on increasing coverage of current top brands while also working to grow newer and lower volume brands. -I did not experience much of a workplace culture since I was in the field almost always. -The hardest part of the job was scheduling times to speak with store managers. -The most enjoyable part of the job was completing a high volume sale to a difficult buyer.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Chino, CA – September 12, 2018
- 13 - 15 hour shifts 6 days a week was the hardest part to get used to - I learned that coworkers can be cruel -Management was unorganized and used favoritism - The most enjoyable parts were the breaks when I could listen to music
vending machines and cold water in the warehouse
bad management, horrible coworkers, imbalanced hours
