    I worked at Kendall-Jackson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely loved my time at Jackson Family Wines. I would have stayed had I been able to fulfill my passions, unfortunately there was just no where for me to fit at the time and I had to forge my own path. If I find myself on the job hunt ever again I will definitely look into JFW again.

    Pros:
    - Great employees who become great colleagues.
    - Wonderful health initiatives.
    - Good health benefits.
    - Programs to give back to the community and employees in need.
    - Commitment to sustainability.
    - The wine is amazing, so you know you are selling a quality product.
    - Family owned and operated company.

    Cons

    - Vacation is only 2 weeks.
    - Significant others are not invited to holiday party.
    - They offer Sick and Vacation vs. PTO.
    - All travel expenses including flight and hotel must be paid out of pocket and then there is a long wait for reimbursement.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kendall-Jackson (Santa Rosa, CA).

    Interview

    Responded to an ad & it took them more than a month to respond. The first interview went well & I was told I would come back for a second interview but the process dragged on and on with very little transparency or communication. Surprisingly unprofessional for such a high level position.
