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

    Pros

    Great wages and benefits. Plenty of opportunity to work overtime. You leave work at work when you clock out everyday.

    Cons

    No promotion without a college degree. The company would be better off promoting from within. There are a lot of operators with a lot more knowledge and experience than the college kids coming in as managers.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within

    Pros

    Fast-paced; Great co-workers; Working for a beer company is fun

    Cons

    View on budgets is unsustainable (ZBB); lack of flexibility; changing expectations; lack of engagement; hours required make the pay not worth it; bonuses have been lacking for the past 5 years

    Advice to Management

    Introduce logic back into the company, make smart choices and invest in your employees if you want them to work as hard as is expected.

    Pros

    Great career job for hourly employees. Great benefits and pay. Employees get 2 or 3 cases of free beer a month.

    Cons

    There is a high management turnover. An hourly may have to work many years to get day shift hours.

    Advice to Management

    Change your hiring practices for entry level managers and try hiring leaders and not just engineers. Every new manager must have an engineering degree and you are missing out on people who will not only be great leaders but an asset to your company.

    Pros

    Jeans and casual work environment made for a comfortable workday. The company offers free beer every couple of weeks, and the hourly wage was decent.

    Cons

    The job was presented to be responding to customer calls, emails, and social media posts. Once you start, they tell you that it is just a call center, and to take on emails and social media, you have to be a more tenured employee. It is just a call center...it is absolutely nothing more than a call center. They leave you at part-time with promises of advancement and more opportunities within your role.

    The training was highly disorganized, and it consisted of of classroom training and "on-the-job" training. Several racist remarks were made by the training manager who led the classroom training, and his remarks made several employees visibly uncomfortable. They toss you into "on-the-job" training with associates who obviously were not interested in assimilating trainees into the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get more organized. Don't hire college graduates into part-time, menial positions.
