If you appreciate the lifestyle of drinking, eating and having great relationships you'll love this job

Pros

So many times a day I feel like I'm not even working. The industry is very heavy on relationships so if you love people and they love you you'll find yourself wondering how you found a job where they paid you to be you.

Cons

You'll never stop thinking about work. Also I think there are some very unreal expecations that brands have once they get with a company like ours. With so many amazing brands out there it's becoming more and more important for brands to represent themselves and tell their special story. A distributor of our size offers wonderful economies of scales with help in the sales, marketing, PR and events area.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the important things for the company as we can't make all the brands happy and if you do you'll never get to that point where it's enough.

    Pros

    its an interesting job you get to learn about wine, you get a lot of free bottles, for the most part you are left alone and get to manage your own time so theres a lot of freedom. they don't GPS you like other companies do. and i hate to say this, but if your a woman...numbers are a little better because you are mainly selling to men.

    Cons

    where to start. if you're a morning person this job is for you. 5am start times get old real fast. you have to lift a lot and deal with a bunch of liquor managers who are on power trips. so you have to be patient and always smiling. they gave a management position to a guy with no management skills and a guy because his daddy is a VP in the company. so it doesn't matter how good you are at your job, how many sales awards you've received its all politics so if you want a company where you can move up in, look elsewhere. its also a cheap company that doesn't seem to care about their employees very much. they recently cut way back on healthcare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sell the Co.
