Does E. & J. Gallo Winery offer a yearly bonus?

Pros

Good pay and benefits, especially compared to the competitors. If you want to get into the industry, Gallo is a great place to start. The company culture is better than most and job security is above average as well. As a merchandiser, you work with the sales representatives most often and the majority of them are nice, hardworking people...

Cons

... but a good amount of them are not. A lot of them will try to take advantage of you and will give you most (if not all) of the hard work, while they claim credit. Expect to be thrown under the bus if anything goes wrong too. The hiring quality of sales reps varies dramatically and management is slow to correct the behavior. As a merchandiser, you are expected to sell, even though there are essentially no kind of incentives at all. Management might throw you a bone every now and then, but that's about it. Promotions are more based on if they like you, rather than merit. If they don't like you, expect to be given loads of more work (on top of your regular duties), micromanaged and nit picked until you either get out of the doghouse or resign. Depending on the territory, you might be forced to lead a reset team 5 days a week, week after week, for up to a third of the calendar year. It is a truly tedious, thankless and unenviable project with no kind of bonus by the end. If you're lucky, you might have to do only a dozen or so resets throughout the year.

Advice to Management

Merchandisers are always told how essential they are to Gallo's business. And that is true, as they are help the sales reps grow business. Unfortunately, these words don't usually translate into anything tangible. My advice to management is to actually follow through with professional advancement, give the merchandisers incentives more than just couple of times a year and work more closely with the sales reps and merchandisers. The meetings are too frequent and time consuming and eat into valuable sales time. Finally, there must be some kind of bonus or incentive to give merchandisers for leading resets for months. Especially considering that merchandisers won't be able to sell during that time, thus putting them far behind in any kind of career advancement.

It is a truly tedious, thankless and unenviable project with no kind of bonus by the end.

Does E. & J. Gallo Winery offer a daily bonus?

Pros

Good pay, job security, mostly good people.

Cons

Lots of red tape. Lots of "above and beyond" regulations that clog up workflow. Too many meetings.

Advice to Management

Invest more in your employees. Groom them to move up, don't just let them become stagnant once they sign on the line. Develop better plans for on-boarding new hires and getting them integrated in your department. Do a better job of making things consistent between Modesto and the rest of the wineries. Don't give small tasks/projects to groups of people, this clogs work flow and does not promote team work. Ever done a group project in school?

Good pay, job security, mostly good people.
