    I have been working at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I have been working for ABC for about 3 years. These are the top pros that I have seen through my years here: They give back to the community They hold people accountable Good Benefits Fun industry that promotes learning and knowledge in wine and spirits Fun and inviting environment Plenty of avenues to move up in the company (They promote from within)

    Cons

    I Can’t think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits full-time

    Pros

    Great training opportunities. There is some upward mobility within the company if you truly work hard for it.

    Cons

    Tons of turnover and relatively low pay for the amount of responsibility given.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay for position and offer better incentives for jobs well done.

    I have been working at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    ABC cares about their Team Members as well as the guest. They are family oriented and treat you as you are part of it. They offer great incentives and benefits and look for ways to improve the work environment for both Team Members and guest.

    Cons

    Need to have a better training system in place and find a way to improve the incentive program as well as expand it more.

    I worked at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits part-time

    Pros

    Fun guests, very lay back atmosphere for the most part

    Cons

    Managers on extreme power trips, taking vacations during holidays and forcing everyone else to pick up their slack, no accountability for them. Would punish workers and would ignore other assistant managers doing the same exact thing. Would stay on computer the entire time rather than helping when registers needed help and would leave a hour early after doing nothing all day.

    Advice to Management

    Please have more accountability for the managers/assistant managers. As it is, no one at the store I worked at wanted to be there because of the Manager.

    Pros

    Hours of operation leave opportunity for other passions or responsibilities. Classes are easily accessible to improve your knowledge of the products. Computer system is easy to learn and use.

    Cons

    Unloading trucks is mandatory for all employees. (usually very early in the morning, rotating shifts)
