    I have been working at Traveling Vineyard part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the flexibility I get with Traveling Vineyard. There is no pressure to go beyond what I want to do, only support. I happen to have a FT job that I love and I think it's great that I can do both. The educational opportunities and the benefits are outstanding and I basically have my own business but never feel alone, there is support all around to assist me in doing great things. The wines are fantastic and I have no problem marketing them all, quality is superb!! They have also come along way and are always giving back to their employee to make our jobs easier. Many companies charge the consultant for things they give us for free!! and just when I think they have done above and beyond they do something else to help me with my business!!

    Cons

    They need a few more accessories to market but other than that I have no complaints. They listen every time there is concern. I would like to see a way to virtually attend and get credit for some of the regional meetings since it's often hard to make them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great support coming and keep up the great work and Thank-you, but remember to keep things simple and about the wine!

    Interview

    There's no interview, your love of wine is enough. We have had men and women sign on that didn't even have that. You pay $189 to sign up and agree to the company's policies and procedures (that must be followed). Then you are ready to start your business.
