    I worked at Southern Wine & Spirits of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits , Great Business , nothing else !!!!!!

    Cons

    Bad Tactics , Bad Stategis going to markets work the employees like they are in a concentration Camp . BURN AND TURN VALUE !!!! Look at the company before applying they suck you in as a merchandiser work you like a dog nights weekends no life then if you know someone you make it to the next level which is a salesperson then you are in . Then your merchandiser that doesn't know anybody gets picked on till you quit !!!!! But everybody gets hired at that position first !!!!!
    They lie , make you work like a dog !!!! Shame on them

    Advice to Management

    Management you are as bit PROFESSIONAL as they come !!! Crawl in your whole and get some real managers in there !!! Stop hiring relatives and printing you brother sister or better yet the suppliers family members !!!! Give you merchandisers a big rate increase and don't work them like dogs they are real people too ....
