    Pros

    Even upper management make themselves easily accessible.
    Health benefits have been sufficient over the years.
    They help pay for relevant education expenses.
    Livable wages even for sub-manager positions.

    Cons

    Standard retail woes mostly still apply including occasionally difficult customers. No getting around evenings and weekend work. Have heard the health benefits aren't what they used to be. Somewhat slow pace to replace exiting employees, leading to understaffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the health benefits aren't what they used to be

    I have been working at Binny's Beverage Depot

    Pros

    Expanding
    FT Benefits (health and dental)
    Laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Education (you have to learn anything about the products you sell on your own).
    Advancement (still a family business, so you need a family name)
    Pay (lower than other comparable retailers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Posting opportunities and having interviews for advancement.
    Really promote from within (not from within the family).
    Increase staffing, customer service is only obtainable if someone is there to give it.
