Company Culture

My immediate teammates are great. Most of us get along and are there to help each other. There are the token few who pick fights or don't help the team.

Support from management

My immediate teammates are great. Most of us get along and are there to help each other. There are the token few who pick fights or don't help the team.

Teamwork

They try to get everyone to work together but do tend to ignore long term complaints.

Freedom to work independently

The department I am in operates separately from the rest of the building.

Internal Communication

Most of the department that handed out bonuses based on success were fired and employees have not received their bonuses from September 2018.

Gender Equality

Women are treated completely equally.

Attitude towards older colleagues

A fair chunk of the staff is over 45.

Career Development

I have worked there since September and starting in November they started working me into management.

Overall compensation for your work

I don't make as much money as previous jobs in the same industry.

Office / Work Environment

The sinks back up and smell like death, the bathroom drains don't always work and end up filling the restaurant with feces smell, and it's usually cold.

Environmental Friendliness

No recycling, even though we go through hundreds of wine bottles and cardboard boxes in a week.

Work-Life Balance

They work you within the availability you give them. Once you start to go into management, they work you longer days, 24 hours over Saturday and Sunday.

Company Image

It is not a bad company but there are some things that are fishy and I have had better jobs overall.

Job Security

If they like you, they'll keep you. If you're there to pick fights and cause problems, they won't keep you.

Handicapped Accessibility

Very handicap friendly.

Workplace Safety

Most people don't get injured there. I am the only one with a serious injury in the past year.

Challenging Work

The only challenging part is heavy lifting and dealing with demanding customers. Middle aged women are the worst group to serve.

Inclusive / Diverse

They listen to ideas and encourage employees to pitch in during meetings.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would change the way wine club memberships are dealt with. They're currently used to gain managers bonuses with no real benefits to employees, and rank employees. They make customers feel entitled, there is no reason you should sell memberships to a restaurant. It isn't a country club.

What I like about the company

I met my best friend there, and they quickly started working me into a management position. I can use the experience here to get a better job in the future and get the job I want.

What I dislike about the company

Management puts and extreme amount of pressure on employees to sell customers wine club memberships because they get their bonuses based on how many wine clubs the employees sell. They rank the employees and evaluate their usefulness based on their sales numbers, which is unfair and inaccurate. They fire people if they don't get "enough" wine clubs in a certain time period. Additionally, the free bottles wine club members pick up are included in the daily sales as actual sales even though nothing was paid for the bottles, so they are misleading investors.
