    Pros

    Total Wine is very committed to developing and training those that want to continue their career with them.

    Cons

    However, during my two years with the company I noticed very few internal promotions and the few that did move up had to fight hard. They seemed to value outside hires more than internal promotions, which is a big reason I left. Mostly the move from the stores to corporate were lateral moves unless you'd dedicated years to the company.

    Pros

    .Good and flexible hours .Good OT if you want it .Great coworkers .Great products that you get to taste and take home for free (a case of wine a month for full timers) and they also reward you for a good days work with a bottle on occasion. .They take care of their employees. If you’re doing your job right and showing up, they’ll be fair to you and grant the time off you need. .It’s easy to advance. Just express interest and learn your products and you can join the management team within a year. They are expanding fast so it’s easy to find yourself in the management team of a new store if you’re good at this.

    Cons

    . If you’re full time, the holidays can get demanding with very long days and high store traffic. . There was some drama at other stores with the management team. Not at my current store but there can be some toxic management in some places within the company.
