    I have been working at Reyes Beverage Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great benefits, good work-life balance, bar on site, fun employee events, great coworkers, free beer to take home for your family at every holiday etc.

    You really feel like you're part of a family that has your back.

    If you're ambitious and work hard, you will be promoted. Most of the leadership in the whole company started out in entry level positions and worked their way up.

    Cons

    It is a very large company, can feel corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, and keep growing to get better!

    Pros

    free beer and that's it. This place is horrible and the managers are completely awful. Do not work here. They will try to suck you in with the pay, but it is awful.

    Cons

    If you want to sit on the phone for 8-9 hours a day and have people yell at you the entire time than this is the right job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoritism and act like adults

    Pros

    You get free beer for every holiday, discounts at breweries and beer events. I wouldn't say theres much more to like..

    Cons

    As much as they preach work/life balance, there really isnt any if you're working here. Also they expect you to be okay with this, you're looked down on if you can't work a 6th day or do more OT. Constant turnover from top to bottom, I've been told they manage money and time then their employees by management. It's too stressful, just not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training, especially in sales. You guys throw people out to the wolves with no experience and then are shocked to see why turnover is so high.

    I have been working at Reyes Beverage Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay. Not much more to say.

    Cons

    No support from management on the larger issues at hand. Yes they are out in the field. But they are doing trivial work. Building displays stocking shelves. We need management that wants to build relationships & address the real problems that come with the way RBG is ran. Currently when management goes into you account. Your critized on the way things look. But don't help to get them to their standards. And if a customer is unhappy. The salesman is at fault regardless of circumstances

            Promotions are clearly done by picking out senior managements favorites. & industry friends/family Not by qualifications or time earned. Subordinates suffer by the lack of skill and basic human resource knowledge of current management and recent management hires.

         Intimidation runs rampant, you are never to talk constructively against company procedure. Or your "marked"and will be passed up for promotions or worse.
      Do not ask "why" or ask for "more help". Merchandising is a joke. Sales force is belittled to feel insufficient when goals are not met. But the company's lack of true customer service is the real issue. Drivers are paid very well and treated like royalty, Very appreciated. Sales force is expendable & always ready to be replaced at a moments notice. Operations is royalty Sales is expendable.
    Senior management/Management/drivers all go on all expense Paid trips. Sales all fight for a single trip. But we are rewarded once a year with a free round of bowling.

    The companies core values only apply when management sees fit. Or to belittle you.
    "Integrity" - is an excuse to fire you.
    "Wellness" - is only practiced when it doesn't affect the bottom line.
    "Innovation" - technology is redundant adds more to your work day.
    "Responsiveness" - the only ones that are responsive is the sales force.

    To finish. I believe in rbg and the core values I also believe this is an isolated facility. I believe the Reyes brothers don't want the company ran this way or their people treated this way.

    Advice to Management

    The problems at allied Sylmar/Ventura need to be addressed by an outside agency non biased third party. These problems will be swept under the rug if handled by allied.

    Pros

    Good co-workers but need to know who to trust. Make your own schedule and prioritize your day (unless you are with a manager), fun events if you meet goals.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites and it is well known. The sales reps work hard to keep up with the idiotic complaints and demands of their customers but get no recognition or encouragement from management. As soon as something goes wrong though you are in trouble. Management is not supportive and cannot answer majority of questions you have. Managing you through email and via phone, not efficient. Have to wait days if not weeks to accomplish a small task because you are working with so many different groups of people. Too many hands in the pot to efficiently get work done. I would not recommend to anyone. This sales job is a joke. You have to stock shelves and clean coolers, which I was lied to about in my interview. Not one day went by where I didn't go home with some kind of dirt on my clothes from having to do a cooler re-set or build a display. No opportunity to move up. They will tell you there is but when you want to try, they beat you down and make you feel under qualified and will literally bad mouth you in order to prevent it (even if you are qualified for the role).

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse and remember that you too started as a sales rep. Treating us like a non-respected, replaceable item will not make anyone excited to work with or for you. Management has literally told people they are not worth their salaries and they specific people and teams are hated within the company. Gossiping is not appropriate between management and subordinates yet it is very common.

    Pros

    often hire from within, perks (events etc), benefits, good coworkers, fast growing industry

    Cons

    Replacing new positions can take longer than expected, hours can be long, can be very stressful with the fast changing environment

    Advice to Management

    Employees would appreciate filling positions faster sometimes it seems they drag their feet.
