Pros

Flexible for students who just need a few bucks

Cons

It would be nice to rotate people from checking to other things in the store more often since standing around gets boring after 3 hours.

    -company only cares about money.
    -some employees get preferential traetment.
    -multiple managers create confusion with tasking and scheduling.
    -schedules are released the day before they start, sometimes the day that they start!

    -10-20 hours a week.
    -low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees happy! develop leaders, not $8 an hr drones. Rememver, happy employees keep happy customers returning. Our happiness = your bonuses. We dont sell cars you corporate heads, we sell alcohol- so stop with sales qoutas. Your associates earn roughly $8 an hr, they dont care about margins, comps or any of that stuff that your managers get paid to care about. Dont forget we (your associates) pay your bills.

    Pros

    Employee Discount, Wine classes, all store management are nice and friendly, and the work isn't challenging.

    Cons

    Employee discount is only 10%.
    They send all the employees these random questionnaires that you have to do, and they get tedious and time consuming.
    Pay sucks.
    Hours are horrible.
    Bevmo makes you think that any other previous job you have had was a god's gift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise employee discount rate. Raise pay and give back more to employees, because employees are the ones that are selling, not you! I can tell them to buy a better (or not) bottle that is more expensive, but in the end I care more for what the customer wants, so I give them exactly what they want and if they can get something similar for cheaper, I tell them to GO FOR IT!
