    Former Employee

    An Awful Normal

    Pros

    Free beer or wine depending on your position and level of expertise based on passing certain tests. A possible way of making connections within the beverage world though they try to limit that. Possibility of travel, though slim.

    Cons

    The attitude depends on where you are in the degree of discontent. The store I was in was almost cancerous. They will give you a lot of rah-rah and there are many who definitely drank the Kool-Aid. But the pay is terrible compared to retail standards, and downright abusive compared to beverage industry especially taken into account what they expect and what you get in return. The work load is overwhelming, their expectations of their low-paid leaned upon workers is reflected in their difficulty in retaining employees that are worthy of investment. Work and life balance for those in store is non-existent. Of store employees they will expect a kind of availability that owns you. All of this represents a very awful normal, of the kind of company which in its totality and business model is based on cutting the profits out of not only their business partners, but of the very people of which day to day success is dependent upon.

    Pros

    .Good and flexible hours .Good OT if you want it .Great coworkers .Great products that you get to taste and take home for free (a case of wine a month for full timers) and they also reward you for a good days work with a bottle on occasion. .They take care of their employees. If you’re doing your job right and showing up, they’ll be fair to you and grant the time off you need. .It’s easy to advance. Just express interest and learn your products and you can join the management team within a year. They are expanding fast so it’s easy to find yourself in the management team of a new store if you’re good at this.

    Cons

    . If you’re full time, the holidays can get demanding with very long days and high store traffic. . There was some drama at other stores with the management team. Not at my current store but there can be some toxic management in some places within the company.
