    They are very generous and will train you as much as you want. Free wine each month. Good management.


    Lots of lazy coworkers. Low pay. Constantly short staffed

    Advice to Management

    Pay the staff more so you can get better help.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Total Wine & More (Greensboro, NC) in February 2020.


    Overall very positive. It was more of a conversation than it was a formal interview and I heard back quickly. I also had to take a leadership assessment which took roughly 35 minutes after the interview.
