    Pros

    Great atmosphere benefits and good management.. You get to learn the business. Job Stability and room for growth in the company.

    Cons

    It is physically demanding and if you are not up for hard work and challenges, this may not be the place for you. This job is not for everyone. It is for those you want to challenge themselves to become a better person leader and grow in a company.

    Advice to Management

    more training for new hires and current employees

    Pros

    you get some perks but managers used them to their advantage in baiting employees to do some extra work that the managers do not want to do.

    Cons

    Long extented hours. No quality of life. You work in all types of weather. If you get hurt the first thing the managers ask " Can you finish the day" instead of asking "Are you Okay!" because they are at the bar already drinking and dont want to help. If you want to quit they offer to promote you. Why do you have to quit to get promoted. There is a lot of verbal abuse from customers and management. When you are off your phone is still constantly ringing. Managers want you to work on your days off if you dont you get black balled.

    Advice to Management

    They is a total disconnect between employees and management. Upper management here in san antonio does not disclose all info to their bosses in houston because they do not want to get in any trouble. Houston management need to spend in more than one day in san antonio to see what is really going on over here. Go to other stores beside the ones mr big bad wants to take you to.

    Pros

    Great co workers and vehicles.

    Cons

    Upper management has no connection to the rest of the company. Unrealistic standards. Was a good place when I started. Turn over rate is ridiculous. Half of Houston has worked here. It seems like.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Free case of beer every month. Good benefits like 401K, medical, dental, vision, and life.

    Cons

    Pay is average, not great. Lack of training. You learn by getting your hands and feet dirty. Often, you form bad habits of doing things and when you find out, it's too late. There are a lot of gossips and backstabbing. Some managers are abusive and arrogant. Some use fear tactics to get their way of things. This leads to low morality in the company. A lot of managers don't even have a college degree. There is no work/life balance. You are given 2 days off, but a lot of time, you have to come in on 1 of your off days. Otherwise, you will have a lot on your plate the next week. Personal growth is little to none.

    Advice to Management

    Train people better. Pay people for what they are worth.

    Pros

    Independence to handle customers the way you best see fit, Competitive sales force consistently motivating one another, good incentives, ITS THE BEER BUSINESS!!!

    Cons

    Unrealistic distribution goals, lack of staff to get objectives done, lack of time to gain insight on how to perform job better

    Advice to Management

    This used to be a competitive but fun business, not thinking distribution and sales through anymore just put it out there and move on to the next account.
