    I worked at Washington State Liquor Control Board full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in one of the retail stores. You're petty much on your own and I like that. If you have a question or need help usually someone will help you.

    Cons

    Once you're hired on, it seems like it is almost immpossible to get fired. I mean I seen people get away with alot! It is frustrating to everyone, especially the manager who wants them fired! And for very good reason too!

    I worked at Washington State Liquor Control Board part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were great. The management and co workers made the job fun and and were very supportive of each other.

    Cons

    Poor decision making from the Legislature. The stores were not allowed to carry the extra items associated with liquor sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the state, don't allow the Legislature to control a retail operation. Hire a retail person to manage the inventory assortment.

    I worked at Washington State Liquor Control Board full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer a standard benefit package after 6 months. Potential for movement around the state employee system and internal Liquor Control Board job postings.

    Cons

    Many people are not competent in their abilities at their current job position. There isn't any sort of team concept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the standards and get rid of those that aren't there to do the job.

    Lots of voter initiative, legislative and organizational changes make it a challenging organization to work for.

    Pros

    If you embrace change, this could be a good place to work. There are many opportunities if you are strong enough to push yourself and your agenda.

    Cons

    If you are resistant to change, or not one who pushes yourself and your agenda you may not like this organization. You may need to do so at the expense of others you work with. If you do push yourself and agenda, use care and be aware of political agendas, you may be allowed to go a direction that later has negative impact on your employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty, integrity and transparency are critical in any organization.

    I worked at Washington State Liquor Control Board (more than a year)

    Pros

    Would have been a stable job if the public had not voted me out of a job and in to unemployment.

    Cons

    The alcoholics in the state got to vote me out of a job. No thought to liquor control and the employment rate.
