    I worked at Paulaner HP USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free beer once a month

    Cons

    If you have any self worth RUN!!! Good people go to waste here. You will never get out from under Jeff or Colleen's thumbs. Jeff will have you going in circles with his indecisiveness. Jeff and Colleen will squeeze ever minute out of every day out of you. If you value any type of home life and family; this is not the place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out of matters you know nothing about and let the professionals do the jobs they are hired to do.

    Former Employee - 2012 National Biergarten Tour Manager in Denver, CO

    I worked at Paulaner HP USA as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good product base and decent working environment. Travel opportunities and entertainment galore. Definitely has it's great times.

    Cons

    Definitely has it's horrible times, though. Long seasonal hours, an obvious lack of effective communications between suppliers and distribution (no one know's what's going on half the time), demanding and often overburdening work loads. A lot of distributors laugh at and mock the company due to its lack of coordination and constant haggling and often refer to it as an example company to avoid. Too many battles to fight with too little troops. Plus Germany likes to meddle and "know what's best" for the American market, which ends up tying up the administration for hours or days on end, distracting everyone from their main objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More feet in the field, better brand exposure with better distributor sales incentives and rewards programs. Plus, your high turnover rate seems to affect your employee and customer confidence. Plus, your high goals and demands on individual work load burns your employees out very quickly.

    Not a good place to work

    Pros

    Great German Brands with a very strong tradition. Two of the six brands found during Oktoberfest. People love the brands.

    Cons

    Management is awful. Budgets are low. Beer is too expensive to sell effectively. Expenses aren't repaid quickly and are haggled. Salaries are low and base salaries subject to bonus type qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Much about the management team seems to be lacking. Turnover has been high, the brand trends are awful and almost everyone wonders what the brands are doing with this management team.

    Pros

    Nice mix of young, progressive people, with support of quite a few wine and beer industry veterans. Generous on free beer, free wine, and time off when needed.
    Management has a solid plan and won't be denied.

    Cons

    German ownership visits and while friendly, seem to always be looking for something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know Colleen and Jeff. They know what they are doing, and are supportive of people who want to learn, growth, and excel.

    Great brands
    Middle management are good people, just caught in a bad company

    Cons

    Where to begin? Low pay, not close to other companies in the business. Distributors think the company is a joke, no follow through on incentives and crazy ordering requirements

    Pros

    Great brands! It's a new company so bumps in the road should be expected. To the person who just replied they agree. You either just left and were overwhelmed by BUILDING a company. Or, you're just not able to put in a good days work. IF you still work for us, please do us all a favor and resign. We have beer to sell and you're obviously more of an ordertaker!!

    Cons

    Young company with growing pains!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less admin work and more time on the streets! We're Herr to sell beer and there has to be an easier way to effectively track the numbers Germany wants from us.
