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

Pros

Free wine, good employee discount.

Cons

Very difficult and needy, affluent customers. Oppressive company culture. No consistency in schedule. Upper level management very inconsiderate of mid and low level employees. Owners would stop by with very little notice, right before store closing, etc. Worst time of my life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider a raise wage for low level employees. Give better holiday bonuses to full time cashiers and merchandisers. Treat employees like people.

    I worked at Total Wine & More

    Pros

    Paying more than minimum wage, Total Wine has an excellent reputation for enforcement of policies and laws. Bonuses are well-advertised but definitely earned. No nepotism.

    Cons

    Management always seems to be playing a game... Employees can easily get "stuck" in their title and rank, getting overlooked for not being well-rounded in their skills. There is also a clear difference in the employees with work ethic and the ones without. The ones with seem to be getting worked to death.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat every employee the same. Your retention is a joke, really. Demanding a labor force of a 21 pool requires way more than paying more than minimum wage. For instance, kids who work for you who graduate college are given the option to remain in poverty with the company or move on. Why not give them a REAL opportunity to find their place in the fast-growing corporation?

    I have been working at Total Wine & More part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    works with school schedule. provide food and random days free of charge. Simple to get the hang of how things work.

    Cons

    not enough potential to move up, and the pay is not the best. it is about 9 dollars and hour for cashiers, merchandisers, and wine associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create an enviroment where your turn over wont be so high.
