    Chaotic

    Nov 18, 2019 - Returns Processor in Atlanta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay. Decent benefits. Decent equipment.

    Cons

    Might have changed in the last two years but from my experience it's very chaotic. HR is 1000% on the companies side over the employees. During my time there, Upper management was horrible at holding warehouse management to the same standard as warehouse associates. Warehouse management often blamed their own screw ups on associates. Hopefully it's changed.

    Pros of Beautiful Portfolio Outweigh the Cons if you Have a Good Manager

    Pros

    Beautiful portfolio of wines and spirits. Excellent product and industry education program. Passionate co-workers. If you have a good manager they will cultivate your abilities and assist you in reaching your goals. The manager really dictates the environment as a good manager and leader takes the time to put together a strong team of quality people. Enjoyable sales competition between colleagues, on the whole not overly cutthroat. Nice incentives an perks.

    Cons

    Legalities of industry create un-even playing field between companies, as well as between individual divisions within the company. Expected to sign agreements that you will not break SLA rules, yet upper management regularly expect it of employees. Breaking rules (not signing an agreement that you understand them and will not break them) seems to be standard in the industry, but could change if it started from the top down, which I do not believe will ever happen here. If you have a poor manager you easily could be used as a scapegoat. Compensation used to be more stable until a merger with Martin Scott and revamp of hr policies. I was about to gain (4 or 5 weeks from it) an additional week of vacation due to coming up on anniversary date and instead no longer qualified. Company hires dead weight managers (nepotism?) and hangs on to them refusing to see their negative impact on once vibrant and successfully selling divisions.
