    I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time (More than a year)

    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 weed or they just drink almost after every shift. People try to pretend to be your friend just so they can find out some juicy information about your life .
     There's no real out look for career advancement this is just more of I need a job and 14 $isnt bad at all especially with the overtime you get some decent pay checks . I'd say do it to get some experience and then find a job with a better company but hey these people aren't picky they will basically hire anyone that can pass a drug test.
    Snitches and brownnosers get first priority.
    Theres a few good guys that work there but it doesn't outweigh the massive sea of garbage people you have to deal with.
    At first glance and when you start working here it feels really good like it's a decent company and the people seem nice too but it changes very quickly and you eventually lose the spark that made you excited to come to work .
    Oh watch out almost everyone that works their currently knows someone or is related to someone else working there .

    Advice to Management

    Drug test your crew haha but then again I guess you wouldn't have one at this point.

    I worked at Maletis Beverage full-time (More than 3 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 (Less 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.

    Very laid back company, always expanding so there's never worry of being laid off

    Cons

    Sometimes it's understaffed and additional duties will be rolled into everyone else until they find a new employee

    Keep up the good work

    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.

    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.
