Employer Summary

Our Total Rewards package includes a benefits offering that’s anything but standard. We're a company that depends on the ingenuity and productivity of each member of our team, and we show our commitment to providing for their personal and professional well-being through programs such as:

  • Medical, Dental and Vision Coverage with shared coverage cost: Selecting health care coverage is an important decision that is based on your personal and family needs, financial considerations, and physician preferences. Gallo also provides a dental plan and vision care plan.
  • Profit Sharing and Retirement Plans: Employees are eligible to participate in the Company’s Profit Sharing Retirement Plan the first full pay cycle after completing twelve consecutive months of service.

    Great benefits package. Starting paid time off was a little low.

    The 401K plan is excellent. The PTO compensation is more than fair, and the employee discount is an awesome perk.

    Benefit package is competitive for a company this size.

    Good: Employee wine shop with discounted wine. Commuter bus from east bay. 401k matching. Bad: PTO policy could be more generous. Vacation and sick time are looped together, and they start you at only 15 days. This forces people to work from home when they’re sick in order not to burn up vacation days. Health care is expensive because they only cover half and it’s Kaiser(ugh). No stock options because it’s a private company. They offer profit sharing but you have to work there for years before you’re eligible. Women’s nursing room is basically a windowless closet. Office isn’t pet friendly. They are a super conservative company and are loosing tons of good talent to companies in the Bay Area with unlimited PTO and amazing benefits. If they invested more in benefits I think they would attract better talent.

    Match your 401k to 3%, great benefits, health incentive program that gives you money back for gym membership or lifestyle choices

    Gallo is a great company to work for; however the salaries are a bit low. That being said the have a great benefits package.

  • Sep 06, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Human Resources Manager in Modesto, California

    Health insurance, 401K and profit sharing - all great benefits. And then there is the employee wine shop!

  • Aug 31, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Modesto, California

    The 401K company contribution is top notch.

  • Aug 28, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Team Leader in Fresno, California

    Vacation time as a team leader is excellent. We have 3 plant shut downs a year that give an added 4 weeks of vacation time to the year (for 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and 2 at Christmas) on top of the 3 weeks a starting employee gets. If you work at the winery, this benefit is well worth the 6-day work weeks during harvest season. Getting bumped up to 4 or 5 weeks of vacation time, however, takes staying at the company for an extended period of time (over a decade), so improved benefits are hard to get.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Sonoma, California

    Medical benefits are decent. Perks are great for some and non exist for others. Growth has taken away the family feel.
