    I worked at Oyster Bay Wines part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    flexible hours, good pay for a part time job. good deal of personal freedom.

    Cons

    Very unorganized, my boss on my first day was supposed to show me the ropes for my first tasting. She was 2 hours late. i was fortunate that purely by coincidence kind-hearted fellow wine vendor happened to be just leaving when i was trying to get set up and She helped me get situated. The Job it self is easy as long as your a personable and positive individual with a decent sales acumen and a love and knowledge of wine. No commission or incentive for exceptional sales.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Oyster Bay Wines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great portfolio of wines, okay work/life balance, nice office environment and generally okay office staff.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, very average staff benefits and salary, very little opportunities for advancement, poisonous corporate culture and product training verging on staff brainwashing, inconsistent and deceitful Managerial approach to HR issues, HR department and policies almost non-existent, zero transparency with Management decision-making.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with your staff, treat them like humans and not robots, revise your hiring policy regarding middle-Management, look at increasing staff benefits/salaries and revise your staff training as this is the worst of any company I've ever worked with.
