    I have been working at JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with of varied life backgrounds and experiences. Willing to invest into new/older employees so that we get the most out of our work. Team incentives with sprinklings of individual so that we can achieve a synergistic status.

    Cons

    JUSTIN Vineyards & winery is very far away from most places in Paso (actually the furthest West) and sometimes it takes some effort to plan out my commute, and also does not really allow for saving at the pump. But honestly this is me digging deep to find something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend that the managers work together more to accomplish goals. Granted I am on the outside looking in, but there are somethings that take a couple weeks to get working (swipe cards for the clock-in/out system, or company emails set up). But honestly this is me digging deep again to find something.

    I worked at JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -good benefits: reasonably priced health and dental, and free personal trainer
    -friendly employees in local offices

    Cons

    -little advancement opportunities unless you are willing to move to LA where the parent company, Fiji Water, is stationed
    -segregated employees: each dept sticks together, and doesn't socialize much together

    specific to the inventory position:
    -boss and rest of team are all based in LA, while you are alone in Paso trying to do everything by yourself. Makes communication very difficult, and increases job stress dramatically
    -poor work life balance. worked 60 hour weeks ALL the time.

    Pros

    The wine is ok. full benefits after 30 days. Put a lot into the Christmas party.

    Cons

    Unethical, unorganized, a bunch of people that think they know what there doing but it's all about a social status for the managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wouldn't listen anyway since its corporate.
