    Pros

    Family owned and operated, very low turnover, lots of opportunity for advancement, positive work environment, good core values, evolving with changing industry.

    I have been working at Horizon Beverage full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with. It is like a family. Tons of perks.

    Cons

    Some of the management needs to realize a leader leads, a boss demands. A leader earns respect, a boss expects respect. Certain "management" needs to get off their high horse. People can only accomplish so much in 8 hours. Can't expect 3 days work to be done in 1. Not expect, demands

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to know how their employees feel. Most have grievances, but don't want to air them due to fear of termination. Most don't feel safe talking to HR due to bias

    Pros

    No pros unless you consider being friends with people one day and them stabbing you in the back the next a pro

    Cons

    Rude management favoritism runs rampant, job rules change like the weather horribly run poor leadership, condescending ignorant people.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good long look at the way your employees are taught and spoken to but really there’s no point because you’re only interested in the almighty dollar not the people.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great sales staff. Lots of fundraising. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    Management is not held accountable for their actions, and allowed to do whatever they want. Ownership doesn't take the time to actually visit all departments in a regular basis to check in with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to check in with each department. Try to find concerns and issues that are plaguing the effeicenty of work.

    I have been working at Horizon Beverage full-time

    Pros

    Been with the company for a few years. One of the best companies I’ve worked for.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Hard to get into industry? Hard to move up? Not really a complaint. Shows that people love the company and don’t want to leave.

    I worked at Horizon Beverage full-time

    Pros

    Some truly great people work here.

    Cons

    No training, support or direction from the company. Ride, unprofessional and passive aggressive communication rubs rampant. Unfair distribution of accounts. Lots of fake smiles. If your direct supervisor or manager is passive aggressive or vindictive - watch out. Confidentiality issues - the entire office will know your business. The bad mouthing will continue after you leave to the point of being slanderous.
