I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Over-time is available to almost all employees when they want it.

Cons

Pay rate and benefits are no where near the normal rate for other AB In-Bev facilities. The Houston Brewery, located less than a mile away, has employees that perform the same work and get paid 4 to 6 dollars more per hour. Benefits are not on par wit the rest of the AB Inbev family of companies. The mandatory draft policy can cause you to work several days past your required shift, which is a pain after you have worked 3 12-hour shifts.

Advice to Management

Adopt a night and day shift instead of rotating workers from day to night every month. Make employee benefits & pay equal to the Brewery.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Free beer.

    Cons

    Very toxic work environment before and after InBev. Not worth the money. Employees and management can be mean, surly, back-biting, ruthless and homophobic. The only reason people stay is for the money, but a lot are miserable. You see these senior managers post glowing reviews, and it's not true.

    Advice to Management

    Come and work out on the floor as an hourly for 30 days, and get a good feel for it. See what you have to deal with day in and day out.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Big bonuses for upper managers (top 6 or so in each brewery)
    Tons of overtime
    Up to 8 weeks vacation (not for salary types, new hires top out at 4 weeks)

    Cons

    Banker upper managers only care about $$$ and nothing else.
    Large turnover in "group" managers because they are expected to do the impossible
    Management bent on cost and job cutting without regard to long term effect on product quality.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know if it's just in the Houston brewery or if it's rampant throughout the A-B brewery system. In Houston the budget (or lack there of) is law. Things don't get fixed, they get a band-aid to get thru this 8 hour shift then it's someone elses problem. Parts are rarely on hand to actually repair something. It's time to long at the long term effect this time of management will have on this brewery and the jobs it creates in this community rather than keying in on keep local managements bonuses at the maximum.
