Great at the store level, terrible beyond.

Merchandiser (Current Employee)
Laguna Hills, CA

ProsYou learn a great deal about the business, wine, beer, and spirits. The store managers and supervisors, at least where I work, are wonderful. They expect you to work hard, and they push you, but they're fair and as long as you prove you are a hard worker, you can almost become friends with them.

ConsUpper management simply doesn't care. District managers come into the store and complain about things that were caused by their policies. Hours are determines solely by the revenue of the store, with no consideration to the amount of work that needs to be done on any given week. last week we got 2000+ cases of wine, beer, and spirits, and only 2 merchandisers were allowed to work that day because of cooperate policy. When the job wasn't done at the end of the day, the store manager closing was worried that the shipment wasn't all done, and stated that he/she (I won't specify which) was concerned that the individual would be chewed out by the district manager. This is unacceptable. Upper management should care more about running a business that can work to it's full potential than cutting costs by reducing man-hours

Advice to Senior ManagementStore managers, stand up to cooperate for your hard working employees. Without us, you couldn't function. hard work should equate to more hours and better pay, regardless of the money being taken in.

Upper management. Stay out of the store management way and let everyone do their jobs. The company as a whole would create more review and function better without you butting into the individual stores daily business.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been working at Total Wine & More full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Wine Training and the guise (false promise) of wine trips. Cons: The absolute worst place to work in the USA. The worst culure, wages,managment,benefits. Hostile… Advice to Senior Management: Get a grip on reality. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Working toward Manager? Be careful what you wish for!

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at Total Wine & More full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Wine for Life and coworkers Cons: Most inefficient company I have ever worked for. I was a manager. Scheduling is a joke. I wrote the schedule, but had to follow so… Advice to Senior Management: You are helpless. Look to the Trone-Gods. Get rid of the BINDERS!… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
