Workplace Safety

Safety is taken serious here.

Suggestions for improvement

  • This company is professionally run and they really know how to take care of their employees and customers. Its a great job to work for especially for someone who likes to keep the blood moving, the ability to make money with little educational background, and someone interested in becoming a part of the beverage industry.
  • I worked for this company for three years and I sometimes miss the comradery I had with my coworkers. It was also pleasant to be given the feeling that I was part of the big picture when I was given the chance to participate in company meetings and holiday parties.

What I like about the company

The company is very professionally run. You get would you put in and if you work hard than you get more in return. Hard work is recognized at this company and if you meet the expectations and put in a little extra you are get encouragement and improvements that directly affect your rate of pay.

What I dislike about the company

Being a position of sales you must adhere to the golden rule of the customer always being right. Any sales professional will tell you that nothing good comes out of arguing with a customer. Working at Schamberger means having to bite your tongue more often than not when dealing with unpleasant customers.

Support from management

Family owned - ownership was handed the company by default and grew up with a silver spoon. They are clueless as to what goes on in their employees daily work life and don't care to learn.

Teamwork

Some great people work here, but they're often unpleasant to deal with because of the stress of the job.

Freedom to work independently

Some sales routes are jam-packed with responsibility, some are a walk in the park (relatively speaking). Management frequently dismisses any suggestions to remedy this.

Internal Communication

This only gets a 2 because everyone has a Nextel. How long did it take to figure out the benefits of company email? Pathetic.

Gender Equality

They hire women in your stereotypical female employment job roles and treatment of them generally matches this atitude.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Lots of older gentlemen here...beer business is kind of an old guys' club.

Career Development

Ha!

Overall compensation for your work

They do pay reasonably well if you can handle stressful work. Good luck collecting your commisions though.

Office / Work Environment

Stuff looks fancy around here for the main purpose of impressing customers, not necessarily employees.

Environmental Friendliness

These concepts are beyond the grasp of the simpletons who run this place.

Work-Life Balance

Be prepared to work whatever hours are necessary to not have bosses constantly on your case.

Company Image

Everyone I ever worked with and spent time with outside of work trashed the company. Competitors generally consider this company to be a laughing stock.

Job Security

Hahahaha! The things they've fired or laid off employees for...

Handicapped Accessibility

Off the top of my head, no. But honestly, I am not a good resource for this information.

Workplace Safety

I don't really know when 90% of my job occurred off the premise of their headquarters.

Challenging Work

I guess you have to be able to operate a computer and do 4th grade math...

Inclusive / Diverse

Well, they do have a token African American or 2.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Take an active role in understanding what your employees go through - both at work and outside of it. Eliminate unehtical sales practices (lying to customers, freebies, etc.). Basically, think about something other than when your next tee time is.

What I like about the company

Working around beer is fun, and there are lots of fun and interesting people to encounter.

What I dislike about the company

Ownership and management (that I had direct dealings with) absolutely sucks the life out of you. They also encourage unethical sales practices, so if you believe in integrity, work elsewhere.
