    I have been working at Horizon Beverage full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Family owned company that takes care of their employees which is a rare thing these days. Great people and work environment. Advancement opportunities. Been with the company 20 years and look forward to many more.

    Cons

    Honestly not many. It is a sales company so it is fast paced and competitive. If you are willing to put in the effort you will reap the rewards

    I worked at Horizon Beverage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    not much good to say here

    Cons

    Fake woke company with can drives and females in leadership organization, all for show. The way they treat their sales division is borders on CRIMINAL, constant unrealistic goals, forcing people off salary month before originally agreed upon, cutting salaries by 25% to squeeze sales staff, never accurately paying out bonus, holding small allotments of owed $ for customers on monthly accuses, and constantly lowering commission and breaking the joke of a sales union, sending private investigators after employees even during COVID.

    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

    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.
