Former Employee - Senior Specialist in Potomac, MD
Former Employee - Senior Specialist in Potomac, MD

I worked at Total Wine & More full-time (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

    Opportunity to learn about wine, beer and spirits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Total Wine & More full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In a tight economy I am grateful to have been offered a full time position with a company that offers benefits to employees. I have encountered a positive work environment with supportive co-workers.

    Cons

    The hourly wage is not great; $10.25/hour. Some pressure to switch customers from big name brands that have been aggressively advertised at bargain prices to higher priced products that are not always better in quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't want to sell cases of big name brands, don't advertise them at prices lower than all the competitors.
