    I worked at BevMo part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The customers were cool, there was always something to do during slow times, you learn a lot about different brands and what is good through customer recommendations, the coworkers are nice and relaxed.

    Cons

    the scheduling was undependable and did not work well if you had a second job or schooling, there was little opportunity for advancement or raises, many scheduling conflicts with class times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a smaller staff with more regular hours, schedule accordingly around worker's schedules, have in store training for better workplace opportunities for long term employees

    Pros

    Nice people, customers are always so happy to be handed their booze. The hhours are flexible for someone like me who isn't looking for a whole lot.

    Cons

    No training for seasonal sales staff, knowledge on alcohol is assumed or tough luck. If I was looking for more than 15 hours a week I highly highly doubt I'd get it. The employee discount is pretty weak.

    I have been working at BevMo part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Learning about all sorts of different alcohols, there's okay amount to move up as long as you have the drive to learn everything, it's a pretty decent job to learn

    Cons

    poor hours after the holiday seasons, irregular hours, no raises, their rules there are very strict which sometimes leaves you being at the end of the wrath of customers, no real training although as long as you're a quick learner you don't need it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least to the managers and everything you're doing a good job but to corporate you should definitely start giving raises and better hours so that you're employees would be more driven to stay and do a good job while working.
