    I have been working at Republic National Distributing Company full-time (More than 10 years)


    RNDC has a culture that appreciates and rewards hard work. I have had the opportunity to work in different roles and in different markets during my career at RNDC. RNDC has also developed a Millennial Counsel to make sure that the voices of the largest growing demographic of workers are being heard.


    If you are on the "on premise" side of the company, which means calling on bars, restaurants, etc., there may be longer and later hours than normal. If you are an outgoing person that likes to engage with consumers then the long hours and late nights aren't really a "Con" at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communication as open and transparent as possible, continue demonstrating appreciation and recognition, and continue the visibility that our Senior Leaders have demonstrated in the past year.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Republic National Distributing Company (Charleston, SC) in February 2018.


    We met in a bar and had a great conversation. The interview went very smoothly, I was familiar with most of the staff so I felt very comfortable and relaxed. The second interview was at RNDC headquarters in Columbia, SC with the area manager and director of sales.
