Distell is a good company.

One of the best jobs I have had in my life. May it continues to do the best to others.Hours were not a problem, working during the day or night was good.

Very backward autocratic micro management style esp at Springs site.

Company is great place overall the only issue is the Management style at the different sites. Managers have little or no executive experience nor people skills. Culture is very demotivating for staff, no growth opportunities and lots of favoritism. Staff is very demoralized.

Pros

Quarterly alcohol allocation allowance

Cons

Management and salaries no overtime and short pay on salary

Workmanship

Distell can improve alot of work stations and it can definitly make more efforts in others ideas , not taking credit for everything. Giving early retirements was not the right thing to do I can make them more money than there making now with new improvements

I was so passionate about my work

I was doing a job that I liked most with a lot of traveling, meeting deadlines of sales is one of the things that I liked about that job but things changed later on.

Productive and fast pace work environment

I worked for a year at Distell, I have learned so much from my colleagues. It is a very fast moving environment and you must do your work very accurate. The culture at Distell was amazing. The hardest part of the job was leaving.

Pros

Cons

Not enough money

Company restructured and this cause retrenchments/early retirements

Stress full and inconsistent A huge amount of experience in programs, processes and procedures Management changed a few years ago and it brought a lot of changes to the company. Some good some not so good, good/experienced people who worked for the company for years lost their jobs. Years of experience is not important as one would expect. To try and keep your staff motivated if the company made changes without timeous communication to adjust or put processes in place. When targets are reached and staff are happy and celebrating.

Growth of workers

They just over look people who are capable for promotions. Slowing the growth of personnel working for them for many years. They supply good packages with the cost to company for an employee.

Corporate and stressful at times but truly a fun and exciting company to work for

The company is very focused on achieving targets and sometimes forgets about its employees. It use to be very enjoyable to work here but it seems that the pressure from upper management does make sales a bit more stressful. On the other hand, the people do make it enjoyable and fun and it is definitely a company i would recommend if you want to accelerate your career.

Overall this is a great company.

Management must pay attention to its employees especially on certain opi or suggestions they bring. It is a great company to work for they do spot talent when they see one.
