micro-management, treats staff like robots
sales rep (Current Employee), ottawaMarch 24, 2014
Pros: my co-workers
Cons: everything else
Working in a downtown location in Ottawa, it was demoralizing everyday to aid the alcoholism of the homeless population. They would come in wasted with a tim hortons cup of change and management would insist you serve them so as to not lose a sale, EVEN THOUGH IT IS ILLEGAL! This job gets around so many legalities because they think their store level – more... staff are stupid. The minute you bring up the labour board they threaten to take you off the schedule. They manipulate and use coercion to get you to do job tasks that you arent comfortable doing. – less

Great place to work. Great team spirit and honesty
Walkie Operator (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONJuly 6, 2013
Pros: i learned a lot about the wine industry; and i developed a greater understanding and respect of it.
Cons: not enough work to keep me there longer.
I enjoyed working for this company. The employees and staff were so helpful and respectful to each other and made me feel welcomed. I learned to do my job quickly safely and the importance of working together as a team to help each other. We made sure that we were always aware of the strength and weakness of each other and to give a hand whenever needed. – more... The hardest part of the job was leaving. The proximity and time was my ideal working hours since I was able to start early and finish early. I could still be home in time to greet my kids from school. – less

Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONOctober 15, 2012
Busy all day long - time flew by.
Just learned a new JDE 9.0 system - so new challenges to keep the job exciting.
Good people to work with - lots of team players.
Hardest part of the job was meeting dealines and most enjoyable part was completing the deadlines - at the end of the day felt good about self as all was accomplished

June 4, 2014

HEARD THAT SOME PEOPLE LOST THEIR JOBS UNFAIRLY AFTER MANY YEARS OF HARD WORK. JOBS WENT TO THE U.S. - SINCE LEARNING NEW GLOBAL COMPUTER SYSTEM KEPT CONTRACT PEOPLE AND PEOPLE WITH SHORT TERM EMPLOYMENT AND LET GO LONG TIME EMPLOYEES. LOTS OF FAVOURITISM. SO SAD FOR THESE PEOPLE. NO A/P JOBS IN NF ANYMORE.

Terrible place to work
Accountant (Former Employee), Victor, NYDecember 2, 2014
Constellation Brands is a terrible place to work. They love to misuse people by keeping them as temps for over 25 years and refuse to hire them directly.

Great benefits and work/life balance, not a lot of room for growth
Marketing (Current Employee), Canandaigua, NYJuly 10, 2014
Pros: benefits, free products, work/life balance, salary = average
Cons: growth potential is extremely limited on east coast
Constellation is a great company to work for as the benefits are wonderful. The parties and free wine are great perks, however there isn't room for advancement on East coast. If you want to move to high priced San Francisco, CA then there are many more opportunities.

Pros: bar, holidays, pay

Constellation Brands clearly has one of the BEST wine portfolios in the Industry. Fantastic!
Field Sales Manager - Minnesota (Former Employee), Canandaigua, NYFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: all the brands, the total compensation, and many of the people
Cons: i would rather not say.
I owe a great deal to Canandaigua Wine Company (now called Constellation Brands). This Company gave me the chance to learn the wine industry covering multiple states with plenty of distributor responsibility. As they acquired companies such as Sebastiani, Robert Mondavi, Vincor, Beam Wine Estates, I became educated on Premium, Super Premium, Luxury, – more... and Ultra level wines because these were the wine categories I inherited and took over selling. – less

Lab Technician II (Current Employee), Madera, CAFebruary 17, 2013
Pros: discounts on wine, enthusiastic people, benefits
Cons: long hours, heavy work load
A typical day consisted of doing line checks for the lines that were bottling wine and/or sparkling wine and make sure that the commodities were correct. Hourly pick ups for the lines making sure to get a sample for micro plating and samples to check the CO2 and/or O2 in the wine. In between that I had to plate/filter all the micro samples that were – more... brought in as well as other duties that were put on the schedule.I learned a lot about the process of how wine is made and it's journey to the shelf. The hardest part would have to be the hours and everything that is/was expected but the people I worked with helped the days go by faster. – less

Systems Administrator (Former Employee), Canandaigua, NYOctober 24, 2012
I certainly can't say anything bad about Constellation Brands, Inc. It was a great company to work for. I was brought in as a contractor and was hired on as an employee in just over 9 months. Working with Management and co-workers were absolutely wonderful to work with. I actually looked forward to going to work with this company. So many compassionate – more... people to work with. It was not your average Corporate atmosphere. Again, the most enjoyable part about working there was working with the end-users and resolving their issues. You couldn't ask for a better feeling of appreciation. I was able to move up in this company and they really do care about you. You definitely are not just another number in a corporation. – less
