The culture of Total Wine is holding it back from being a really great place to grow a career.
Most days feel like I'm trying to fit 10 lbs of *stuff* in a 2 lbs bag.
Management sets unrealistic expectations and fails to hear the solutions to opportunities. Employee turnover is high, even for retail, and the amount of training that is required to be even the most entry level of positions means that you're constantly having to train new people without the support of veteran staff.
A typical shift is 10 hours long with a single 30 minute meal break.
The culture is toxic and negative at the store level.
Free case of wine every month and ample training.
Low pay, Long hours, No WL Balance, Toxic culture, no upward mobility.
