I worked at FIJI Water

Pros

I worked for Fiji Water during NY Fashion Week and it was a great way to see a variety of fashion shows I never would have been able to see otherwise. They took us out to lunch and dinner regularly and I was provided a year of free Fiji Water delivered to my door.

Cons

The fashion week internship was unpaid, and provided no housing stipend since it was in NYC. This was really an excuse for them to have pretty girls hand out their water to celebrities and other fashion industry professionals, without having to pay anyone to do so. But if you want to attend fashion week it's a remarkable opportunity. I was not able to network or gain professionally from the internship as they promised.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The two people leading the 4 interns were fun and organized and were really a pleasure to work with. Asside from one snafu that resulted from miscommunication, I think they were donig a great job.

    Pros

    They have a great product and is a great place to gain experience in a variety of different roles. They also have great benefits>

    Cons

    There is constant change in management styles, ideas, and objectives. Communication is often lacking. The company as a whole is very unstable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to keep and promote more business minded individuals and ended all of the political games. They also need to properly evaluate peoples strengths and weaknesses

    I have been working at FIJI Water full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company values, never bored, flexible work hours, opportunity to visit the bottling plant in Fiji and get to learn different aspect of the beverage, wine and snack business.

    Cons

    Disconnect b/w retail and on premise managers, many reports are requested which get in the way of selling, compensation seems to be lacking, T&E budgets are unrealistic and they do not offer a national sales meeting that allows employees to meet one another and exchange ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring company together for a national sales meeting. This will give employees an opportunity to build relationships with people that are trying to achieve the same things as well as experiencing similar challenges. A national meeting fosters good moral and the exchange of ideas.
