    I have been working at Coors Distributing Company of Denver full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid teamwork, Fun work environment, Great Benefits, even greater relationships.

    Cons

    at times, the goals and tasks are unrealistic and unattainable. There are a lot of tedious tasks that are asked to be completed on a daily level.

    Advice to Management

    Become more hands on.

    If an errors occur with our pricing and the company undercharges an account, CDC will be diligent and urgent when back billing the account. On the other hand, if an account is overcharged or pricing is incorrect, CDC does not respond with the same promptness to remedy the issue.

    My advice would be to treat our accounts as if we were in their shoes. we should reciprocate the same urgency and standards that we ask our retailers to abide by.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coors Distributing Company of Denver (Denver, CO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Very comfortable interview, 2 people asking background questions, mechanical questions, and a general walk through of the facility to show me around the place. Was assured that I had the position if i wanted it, and there was no guess work left to question. Was told to start the following Monday, and began a few weeks training.
