    Pros

    If you're a foodie, you'll love this job. Lots of opportunities to taste wine. Your team makes all the difference and Portland's on-premise team is awesome!

    Cons

    Raises and promotions are very rare. It's all about timing since the market is small, so you can end up waiting a long time to move on. Management makes a lot of promises but they take a long time following through or they never do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic with your employees about timing for raises and promotions. Don't promise things you can follow through on.

    Great entry level, but after 6 months you start to see the BS.

    I have been working at Southern Wine & Spirits full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Neat products, friendly coworkers, not too much busy work

    Cons

    Lower end of the pay range for positions similar in industry. Took away salaries and made us hourly. Time Clock must be from the 80s. Most of their IT is fairly archaic in today's business world. Lack of communication from management to clients, leaving the administrators to clean up their mess. Sorry, I don't get paid to do your job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a reason you look good. It's the support you are getting from your employees, so take care of them the way you take care of yourself.
