What a great way to learn about wine and teach others, too!

I worked at Total Wine & More full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Always learning about wine, spirits and beer. Team atmosphere. Monthly meetings teach about market trends. You will never be exposed to more wonderful wine than you will as a Wine Associate.

Cons

Only learning about WD and SD makes it hard to understand why customers favor National brands, if you can't compare them to WD.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people to work only weekends, so you don't burn people out by making them work every Saturday.

    Pros

    To say you worked for a growing billion dollar company.

    Cons

    Managers promoted with zero management experience or skills. Mandatory 45-50 hour work week, ALWAYS expect to work more. No work-life balance. Very few holidays, very low PTO. Work here if you want to give up your life working your tail off to just get yelled at by six different managers at the end of your excruciatingly long week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least pretend you value your employees. There are much more successful companies out there that people actually enjoy working at.
