I have been working at Southern Wine & Spirits as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

A six week program that takes you behind the scenes of the biggest alcohol distributor in the United States. From broad market (bars, restaurants, liquor stores) to the grocery store chains, you will learn more about alcohol that you ever imagined. I truly enjoyed ever day of the internship, and was offered a full-time position at the end of the summer. If you are currently at a four year University, then I would highly recommend applying for this internship, you wont regret it.

Cons

The only con I can think of is waking up around 5:00am to work with the District Managers in the Chain divisions. Not an everyday thing....
