    Pros

    Time flies. I never look at the clock. Always busy, always making sales or preparing for my next big sale. Talking to dozens of clients a day.

    Cons

    No overtime. I’m young and have nothing going on. I would love to have 5-10 extra hours a week to work on events or things my clients need

    Ok- avoid shared service inventory department

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Health insurance, co-workers ,401k matching, 3% raise yearly max 5% like clockwork for bare minimum effort (you’ll see people who accomplish less in a day get the same pat on the back), good friends club (nepotism is rampant so make friends or get your family hired) most are there for life in the same positions so very stable- I miss working there for my friends but do not miss shared service

    Cons

    Stagnant, nepotism, outdated systems that constantly crash, hard to move upward without being related or besties with management. I liked working there but the toxic management culture made it impossible to stay in shared services- the rest of the company is not the same as shared service department specifically inventory costing

    You get what you pay for

    Jul 28, 2022 - Wine Sales Representative in Dallas, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The manager and director-level leadership in my division work hard and are genuinely invested in me and my growth

    Cons

    Our warehouse/transport are terrible and our administrative and logistical systems make our jobs much harder than they need to be. If Glazer's invested more into shoring up the fundamental flaws in its systems and paid less attention to proprietary software that eats up its employees time, it would have a much larger share in the market and much happier customers.
