    I have been working at Total Wine & More full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked as a wine team member selling wine . They gave me good training and education in wine as well as an opportunity to meet winemakers and vineyard owners too. That's wear it ends.

    Cons

    Work days are long ie:10 - 12 shifts with only one break for lunch which is a half hour. Constantly pushing to sell their Winery Direct wine and some managers lie about non WD wine ie: bad grapes, changed winemakers, lost Gran Cru status, etc. The hours and scheduling is very erratic with no input from the employees. If you want a day off you have to give them 3 weeks notice, but you only get your work schedule a week in advance. Our store management is not friendly to customers, eats all day at customer service , is lazy and does not have any outreach into the community. Oh , but they do care about customer perception if a customer gets upset or has a return or wants a coupon. The employees are worked like slaves with no empathy from management, no breaks , no thank you's , or positive encouragement . Sales are only part of the job get used to climbing a ladder for cases of buried wine , " ABSOLUTELY NO ORGANIZATION" when searching for cases of wine !!! It's like finding a needle in a haystack! It annoys customers and employees. During the Holidays expect to start work at 5am and work a 10-12 shift. In wine sales ,you are a stock boy, a gofer, and then a salesman, but don't recommend anything but WD wine or you will hear about it from management !!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees, just as you do the customers. Have a work schedule that's consistent, with input from employees and that's posted 3 weeks in advance. Employees want a life too. Local management should be more active in the community and not rely on coupons for business, there's NO Community outreach ! Less eating by management at the Customer Service desk. If we did that we would be written up by management. Finally store management on a local level is immature and insensitive to the needs of their employees and they fill our heads with " empty promises"
