I worked at Total Wine & More full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun atmosphere selling cool products. Most customers are happy to be there since the products are things they want, not things they need.

Cons

Mixed bag with upper management. Some people are "in" with them and are impervious to scrutiny. If you're not "in", you're screwed even if your performance is exemplary.

    I worked at Total Wine & More part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros could possible exist only if the Management was human and had a heart, but they don't; its like a cold-blooded environment.

    Cons

    If you get sick you are pretty much dead to this company, you are nothing more than a number. They can't even properly receive in the mail and/or process your Doctor's paper work and could care less if you live or die. Management is INCOMPETENT and turn over is very high, I would say 80% of everyone is new within the first year of any store opening.

    They give you retarded tests every week, over and over and over..

    No trust and no employee empowerment.

    Their loyal customers are basically drunks.

    There is no trust anywhere and Managers and co-workers are back stabbers, the #1 worst Retail company that I have ever worked at, and that's not even an understatement.

    Advice to Management

    Get a Clue not so much to the Management but the owners of this Company - it clearly reflects that they don't care, because their Corporate policies echo through their Management.

    I worked at Total Wine & More full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great education given to all associates from the sales team up through the management teams. Fun work environment and lots of benefits to most associates.

    Cons

    promotions for associates below management level are decided on by AVPs and DMs and taken out of the hands of the local management staff. Normally leading to the wrong person getting the job.

    Also there is lots of room for growth and promotion from management level up if your willing to relocate out west or down south. Very little chance of management growth and promotion in the north east.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful how much control you give the AVPs.
