    I have been working at Bay Area Beverage Co. full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Room for advancement
    Executive Management is understanding and not intimidating
    Excellent benefits
    Competitive pay

    Cons

    The negativity of some employees. There is a good chunk of employees who do nothing but complain about their job and how much they hate it, but for some reason still show up to work everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bad seeds! The company does not deserve to have the negativity and the weight of these horrible employees trying to drag the company down.

    I have been working at Bay Area Beverage Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisor/manager aren't always looking over your shoulder!

    Cons

    Sales reps don't allow merch to rotate product before sending double the next week, the sales team/management don't care about the merch,a lot of backstabbing!

    Top pay for merch 15.15 per hour with $120 a week for gas!

    Advice to Management

    Show more respect to your merchandisers and offer more raises !

    Pros

    If I could give zero stars, I would! The only good about this company is my manager, the HR Department is by far the WORST! Currently seeking other employment because they are a joke!

    Cons

    Human Resources- the entire department is a joke and clueless! Unprofessional and did I mention, they are the worst? They have no idea what they are doing and have no intentions on making anything right!

    Advice to Management

    Hire new and EXPERIENCED HR staff!

    I have been working at Bay Area Beverage Co. full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are really good

    Cons

    Owner will cuss at people; upper management is afraid of owner; profit hugely out-weighs employee relations and safety; absolutely no equality between departments! It's in Richmond! Facility is dark, dirty, unorganized! Upper management has no athical compass!!!

    Advice to Management

    stand up for what is right, don't just tell owner what he wants to hear...have a sense of urgency...listen to your lower level supervisors, managers, and workers

    Advice to Management

    Add some vending machines and on-site food options. Offer a healthy lifestyle program, discounts for gym memberships. Don't be afraid to make the tough call when necessary.

    Thank you for your review! We have added a vending machine, but we're still working on increasing healthy food options.
