    I have been working at Golden Eagle Distributors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There might be one or two employees with integrity at the Buckeye plant. The best employees figure out the disfunction and leave.

    Cons

    Improper training. They're quick to hire only because the turnover rate is consistent. Employees who voice opinion about making things more efficient are weeded out and either quit or are wrongfully terminated. Golden Eagle makes an enticing offer to work for the Budweiser name, but soon upon hire you'll see how it's not only Budweiser products but 'SPIKE Beverage" products your pressured to push into accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Time to stop intimidating employees and start giving positive praise when it is needed. Your company is no longer competitive in the market. Other distributors such as Hensley and Crescent Crown have a stronghold in your area due to the fact that they take care of their employees.

    I have been working at Golden Eagle Distributors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's painful to try and place pro's in reference to this company. If there are any pro's, it would be the occasional friendly conversation with a store customer while making a delivery

    Cons

    Management seems to be in disarray, confused on how to lead. Employees are constantly left to handle situations with no help from supervisors or upper management.The turnover rate is high. There seems to be an uneasy feeling within the branch, no comradery or integrity. I'm thankful for a paycheck, but look forward to something new.

    Advice to Management

    Work on issues in house first. That may evolve into happier employees and better customer service. Acknowledge employees more often in a positive light instead of using a passive aggressive method. You have the potential to be a respected company, but not until you put forth more emphasis on your employees and not your flow charts.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits. There is a strong sense of community and teamwork within the organization. The atmosphere can be fun, new, and exciting.

    Cons

    Salaries are on the low end of the scale. There are very few opportunities for advancement in the company. There is a high risk of being terminated for reasons beyond your control.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salary schedules to compete with other distributors and correlate with work load and stress level; you will retain talent. Basic management and communication skill seminars should be mandatory for management personnel.

    I worked at Golden Eagle Distributors full-time

    Pros

    Great pay. Benefits were as well. Company fleet was top-notch. Corporate training department was very knowledgeable. Co-workers that produced were awesome.

    Cons

    Too many employees only doing enough to keep their job. Not enough motivation for those that are performing. Ownership sold to a competitor, and a lot of people lost their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable to perform their job, for the amount of money you are paying them. Discipline the employee if needed.

    Educate interns more, prepare interns for what the job REALLY entails
