    I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Being able to work with others is great as long as there is little messing around and the job is done well.

    Cons

    The only cons i can see are the long hours and working with others that dont do the job well.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to not complain about merchandisers but to teach them how to do the job correctly.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Helps you stay physically fit or get into better shape Good place to get warehouse experience 14 $ per hour for pay is pretty decent with overtime but no overtime is basically the same as making minimum wage your checks will probably be around 750 . They are very flexible and try to work with you.

    Cons

    Very gossip filled environment who's the best at this who's trying to sleep with who feels very much like your right back in high school but ten times worse. Almost everyone their is a snitch instead of just telling you what you did wrong to your face they'd rather just run to a manager like a baby than man up and say it to your face, almost always over something insignificant too. 75%the crew is on drugs or smokes...

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    *Fun business to be in. *Supportive direct management *Family owned operation *Good support structure *Power of AB and all of the marketing dollars that come with it

    Cons

    *Arbitrary sales goals *Unrealistic expectations from the primary supplier, given local market conditions *Entrenched senior management that commands little respect

    Advice to Management

    Overall, this is a great company to work for. But they really need to retire some of the senior management and get some new blood in there.

    I have been working at Maletis Beverage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open Scheduling, Independent, Long history in the community, family owned

    Cons

    Communication can be better, everything is a "first time" even though the company has been around for a very long time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to add more structure, basics work but the company can excel to excellence if they install order.

    I have been working at Maletis Beverage full-time

    Pros

    I would say that most of the people may Maletis are great, but those aren't the people that are dictating what others should be doing. (Some of) the decision makers are the ones with the issues.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Everyone is too lazy/scared to take out the people that clearly are making the work environment intolerable. There is little regard for the well being of the people closer to the bottom of the totem poll.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the people that are making people quit!!! You know who they are.

    Get rid of some senior mangement.

    I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Brian Freeman, the order of operations, is the man. He will be good to you if you are good to him. Hard work and a go for it attitude goes a long way.

    Cons

    Pay is okay.... If you get on the companies bad side they will make your routes harder.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the owner. Pay your people better and promote Brian Freeman to whatever is next.

    I have been working at Maletis Beverage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay, excellent benefits. I had to take time off for medical reasons and it was paid leave. They have incentives to get you to give your all, and it's worth it. It's a great family company and they really care about their employees, and you get raises.

    Cons

    Summer time can be extremely busy, but you get paid ot, it's best if you are well organized most of the merchandisers have to work weekends and holidays which takes away from family time

    Advice to Management

    Need more merchandisers up in cowlitz county.

  10. "Friendly but at times dis-organized"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Graphics Production in Portland, OR

      I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Staff is very nice and welcoming. They were great at making you feel like a part of the team on your first day. Also if you like beer and wine, vendors and sales people tend to thank you with alcohol.

      Cons

      The office they put graphics in is freezing because it is next to the warehouse. Also when the Sales department needs something, like a tap handle or event poster, they like to ask you day of and expect it within the hour which is chaotic when you had to speak 5-6 different sales people during that same hour.

      Advice to Management

      Communication between employer and employee can use improvement. There were time I had to try and clarify what the job was for the day and my manager would be just as confused as I was.
