Worst place to work unless you are Very Aggressive
Former Employee (Former Employee), Las VegasDecember 16, 2012
Pros: decent medical and dental benefits, 401k, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement
Cons: railroading tactics, indecisive, unstable, manages finance dept by emotions, brown nosing, old school management style to break morale.
Culture: Dog eat dog everyone for themselves. Be sure to walk on eggshells so that you do not get targeted for the retribution list especially in some departments. Finance is the worst department to work in and is notorious for its revolving door policies. All the other departments are normal. Otherwise, pleasant place to work in the other departments.

People: – more... Nice overall except for a few department pets and a few overly sensitive troublemakers, and that depends on the department. Management has gone downhill since 2010, and no longer seems to be genuine or to care about their employees as they have in years past. Example, everyone used to earn bonuses now just management, even with a 10% increase in Sales over the previous year. No matter how hard you work increases range from $0.00 to $0.50 cents, and it depends if your well liked by your manager. Catalytic Coaching means nothing its just a Ponzi scheme to see what you are thinking and an instrument to use against you in retribution. Meanwhile, managers receive massive increases and bonuses very much like Wall St, and the employees are definitely riding down Main St.

Cons: A lot of nepatism, railroading and bullying by certain managers especially in the Finance Dept if they do not like you or want to force you to quit by breaking your morale, the workforce is very homogeneous needs more diversity in age, race, and gender areas. Unfortunately,they have the typical corporate elitist attitude. LV upper management needs to focus more on the customers and their employees; not themselves and their bonuses. The company has a lot of potential with the right management in place, and seems to be a great place to work in their other out of state locations. Unfortunately, the LV office is a Hot Mess and their gangsta mentality will one day eventually get them sued for their wrongful termination tactics against people in order to avoid paying them unemployment. In fact, their have been employees who turned in two week notices and they either paid them on the spot to leave or gave them ultimatums to make them quit on the spot..Very Strange! – less

Striving distributor that sets high expectations out of their employees
Sales Representative (Current Employee), ILSeptember 29, 2012
Wirtz Beverage is a liqour distributor in Illinois, Nevada, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. They are a competitive sales organization that allows you to make a nice paycheck if you hit goals/quotas for selling cases of alcohol to various accounts

typically work on your own driving to and from various accounts making 8-12 sales calls a day. I have learned – more... to deal with many different types of buyers that require many different needs.

Management has gone down hill since I started in 2009 and it no longer is a team based organization, everyone seems to be looking out for themselves rather than the overall outcome of the entire teams goals.

The hardest part of the job is the day to day monotony if driving and lifting cases to the shelves in grocery stores.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom of making your own schedule and not having a direct boss looking over your shoulder everyday – less
