Great place for a job, but maybe not a career

I worked at Young's Market full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

This company gives you the opportunity to work with world renowned brands, and the good people that represent them. This is a great starting place for someone that wants to enter into the Wine and Spirits business world.

Cons

It’s a nice place to work if you are looking for a job. However, if you are looking for a career, be cautious. This is a wholesaler and the company does not own the brands that it sells. Many major suppliers have walked away from this company over the past ten years. If you want to work here, be ready for change and roll with it - continually.

    Being one of the biggest in the business hardly makes you one of the best...

    I worked at Young's Market full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent training, great people, and outstanding work/life balance. I loved working here for the initial five years, but after realizing it's a "good old boys" club...it's total doom and gloom from there regarding your career path.

    Cons

    Lowest paid in the industry, I believe. Micromanagement on completely immaterial issues. Focus on what's important: the selling and building of these brands. Use coach management mentality instead of trying to rule with an iron fist for no real reason other than to boost your own ego.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You never reward your loyal soldiers. Invest in your workforce who want to BE there and maybe everyone wouldn't try to jump ship to someone else.

    Pros

    The work itself, sales, was great and a good leg up on the industry, wine and spirits.

    Cons

    Managment turned on their best asset, the employees
