    Pros

    Amazing support from boss. Lots of flexibility in schedule. You build relationships with great people. Co workers are enjoyable to be around.

    Cons

    Politics- just like in any corporate job. Everything is a priority so nothing is a priority.

    Advice to Management

    The only real complaint is - lack of direction in what is a priority. Every single Monday morning meeting includes 20 different things being a priority. It’s understood that we should get everything done - but it would be nice to know what order they should get done in.

    I have been working at Republic National Distributing Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family owned, well intentioned and very supportive to employees. Friendly staff and long tenure which means lots of dedicated employees willing to help and share experiences.

    Cons

    Somewhat blind to how technology can help improve productivity, which means younger tech savvy employees grow frustrated with its use. Older members of management have a large disconnect with the day to day operations of sales. That coupled with misuse of technology means doing simple tasks more than once to provide data to accountants and pencil pushers.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to younger employees and ask what we can all do better. Anonymous surveys are fine, but they don’t act as a conversation to induce change.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Republic National Distributing Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get plenty of Liquor samples

    Cons

    Only speaking for the on premise spirit side:
    “Perception is reality” based thinking
    Opinion based employee reviews ... they purposely will score you lower to hold you back from advancement if you’re not “well liked” Management that is around you the least will encourage your direct manager to score you lower.
    Promotions are based on opinions and not facts. If the right people like you you will move up. If the “right people” don’t like you they will sandbag you and not allow movement even though NUMBERS say otherwise.
    No culture
    The spirit side is NOT family friendly
    Upper management is untouchable and can treat you how they please with no fear of punishment
    If you’re looking for women management to be supportive and encouraging LOOK ELSEWHERE

    Advice to Management

    Bad managers can cost the economy billions... 70% of employees leave managers NOT companies.

    Pros

    95% road warrior and your selling a product that sells itself.
    Management rating: 6 out of 10
    Work/Life balance is great.
    Invitations to great events/happy hours

    Cons

    NO car or mileage allowance program - 70-100 miles driven on avg. per day.
    Company doesn’t really show appreciation.
    No claim on expenses allowed
    They pile on more work: they just expect you to do it and like it.
    You work almost all holidays (Oct-Dec blacked out)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees concerns and invest more in them.
    Mileage program for employees. It does cost employees around $3k-$4k a year to maintain and fill our cars with gas regularly.
    Look into providing Go-to-Meeting - it works really great and save on miles, time and traffic.
