Former Employee - Senior Specialist in Potomac, MD

I worked at Total Wine & More full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

-Discount on wine
-They're trying to implement some "fun" events at corporate office
-Free wine (if you're one of the lucky ones)

Cons

-45+ hour work week
-They take themselves too seriously, like they're performing brain surgery or something
-Only get a few holidays even at corporate office
-Very cliquish atmosphere
-Health insurance options changed EVERY year for three years in a row
-Free wine is only for some people, not everyone, which creates a "have & have nots" system
-Depending on what dept you're in there is basically no chance of promotion

    I worked at Total Wine & More full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Learn about Wine, Spirits, and Beer. 30% discount on store labels

    Cons

    Long hours, the stocking crew and most of the cashiers will be the lowest on the totem pole. our store was great at having contests for the sales staff to win gift cards or bottles but lacked any reasonable reward program for the entire stocking crew and the same goes in consideration for the department entirely. Not really willing to work with any change in schedule if you're full time. Frequently the same person would scheduled to leave at ten P.M. only to return at Seven A.M. They do not hire from the ground up, our store currently has two managers hired off the street and are in the process of hiring a third.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire less managers and more leaders, when you like and respect the individual in charge you want to do what they ask you to do. Treat your merchandising crew and cashiers with the same respect as you treat the sales staff we work just as hard.
