    I worked at Glazer's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Good pay. They take care of employees. Good benefits. Room to grow. Overall great company

    Cons

    Politics between plants get in the way of working more efficient.
    Set in their ways on certain things b/c they have been doing it the same way for so long. Should be more flexible on industry best practices and bring in people with that expertise and listen to them.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to doing things differently.

    I worked at Glazer's as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Glazer's celebrate holidays in a big way. It made working there fun.
    -A few people were really nice and helpful.
    -They are very good at helping employees gain product knowledge which is an extra fun topic at Glazer's. As an intern at HR, I got to do a month-long rotation in the distribution center to learn what everyone does. I loved it.

    Cons

    -The team I was assigned to had no interest in training me (besides the general knowledge I got during my rotation in the DC) or delegating to me so I hardly had any work to do for a while. I am a self-starter and a go-getter; I tried really hard to get more work. Eventually, a different team noticed and took me in. The first team I was on complained because I wasn't an IT intern and that's what they wanted. However, when I left that internship I went off to become a developer at a different company. So, I think they would have found me useful had I been given a chance to be.
    -Tiny cubicles
    -They paid less than competitors

    Advice to Management

    If your employees are complaining that they need more resources, make sure the team is willing to put the time in to training new resources before wasting your money and that new person's time .

    I have been working at Glazer's (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When it's not the holidays you tend to work shorter days.
    You get to sell and learn about wine and spirits.
    Good first job out of college.

    Cons

    Underpaid. Our competitor gets paid 30k to 40k more than we do.
    The managers micromanage everything. Worst micromanagement I've ever seen. You'll have to send daily reports on what you're doing out in the market. It's like homework.
    Working 6 days a week can become a beat down. Especially since we don't get off for holidays. You only get off Christmas day, Thanksgiving day and New Years day. But the day before those holidays you will work until 8pm.
    Very cut throat. You're supposed to work with your sales partner but management will tell you to steal sales from them.
    On end of month your managers will call and text you until 9 to 10pm. You're not off on end of month until they say so.
    If you don't brown nose the right people then they'll forget about you. You'll get stuck in you're route or won't be considered for any upward movement.
    When suppliers come in town you'll work very late. There will be about 2 days where you're working 7am to 12am (sometimes 2am).
    Their PFP pay system is terrible. It's not commission like the competition is. You'll sell a ton of some brands, but if you don't sell the specific brands they want you won't get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of PFP pay system and stop micromanaging everyone!

    Your day is never the same, you are consisting meeting new people and discovering new ways to achieve the task at hand.

    Cons
