Pernod Ricard USA – Why Work For Us?

Two decades ago, Pernod Ricard was barely a speck on the radar in the United States. Then known as Austin Nichols, the company was a small player with a very low profile. But over the years, Pernod Ricard USA quietly has become bigger, stronger and more capable. Today, it’s no secret that Pernod Ricard USA is a leader in the U.S. spirits and wine industry – with a growing market presence and a strong portfolio of premium brands – thanks to a decade of clever acquisitions, seamless integrations and organic growth.

The company is poised for continued success, based on the following key success factors:

  • A strong portfolio of premium brands, with provenance and social gravitas, and a platform for franchise innovation;
  • Relevant brand strategies with clear and up-to-date activation plans linked to consumers and the trade;
  • Simple, disruptive messages that engage consumers at key points of contact;
  • A dynamic culture based on a shared passion for continuous improvement;
  • A motivated team, properly trained, resourced and incented to win;
  • A strong collaborative network of partners;
  • Cash to invest behind brands;
  • And finally, a strong global foundation to support growth.

    I have been working at Pernod Ricard USA as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Reasonable hours, comfortable work environment which help employee morale. Upper level managemnet is very approachable and answers questions frequently.

    Cons

    IT problems are not dealt with as promptly as they should. Oversight is not particularly ideal for a new employee, however, it fosters an ability to work independently and seek the right answers to problems.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Pernod Ricard USA.

    Interview Details

    Talent Acquisition is completely a joke. They ask bogus questions and then pass you along. It takes over a month for follow up call from HR. All of their recruiters...sorry Talent Acquisition people are inexperienced sales guys from another planet.

    Negotiation Details
    They are real cheap on salaries and do not pay all that well. You have to have another offer that is more compelling if you REALLY want to work here. Best bet is to take the offer and thank your lucky stars you did not work here.
