    I worked at Southern Wine & Spirits of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn some sales experience-although at the lower levels it is all about buying off store managers/liquor clerks. Good bonus potential depending on your territory and division.

    Cons

    driving driving driving-all day you drive and are barely compensated enough for it. The hours suck-you start most days before 4:30am in the field (although you do end at 2pm which is kinda nice). As a territory rep you basically have to hope your manager supplier pays off the store managers to get your product in there.

    Advice to Management

    No issued with management-more so with the company as a whole. They do not seem to care about the "little guys." And you are definitely replaceable. But with said you can do well when you are promoted!


  2. "Fast, challenging, rewarding career"
