    Current Employee - Shift Supervisor in Richmond, VA

    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best job in the world. Worked Richmond Va. 32 years. Retired and enjoying life at 70. If you ever get the opportunity, do not pass any job at Altria up. Ever! Many opportunities for overtime. As a young man I was willing and able to work any and all hours requested of me......Every hour of overtime adds to YOUR retirement....NEVER PASS UP THE OPPORTUNITY FOR OVERTIME.......I was told the first day there...."There will always be the opportunity for overtime, I suggest you take advantage of it" even after I became a Supervisor....that held true.

    Cons

    Best company ever. No Cons.

    Advice to Management

    Respect older employees and their vast knowledge and experience. NOT at all a con......Just advice to younger mid-level management.

    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working in the field sales force is great for people who work well in isolation from team members, self starters, and those in need of autonomous/somewhat flexible schedules

    Cons

    Headquarters is very cliquish. We're told during onboarding in the field sales force that the "company is big enough to find your fit in any given department." But I've found that HQ employees often look down on the FSF when they pursue opportunities in the building. Have also greatly reduced PDP assignments that would allow employees to prove themselves while working on a temporary assignment in conjunction with an HQ team.
