      I worked at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Paid Vacations was about it

      Cons

      The salary is a joke for management. Even mom and pop liquor stores pay better than what they do here. Going from MIT to Manager only gets you a raise of under a dollar an hour. Almost impossible to earn raises through merit. Managers leave because every process you go through is flawed and the pay is trash, store managers are clueless and promoted off bias instead of hard work. ABCFWS will respond saying that's not...

      We are the first to admit we aren’t a perfect company. We have this as a goal, but are humble enough to know we aren’t there. We are an open book company, meaning, if you want to discuss why our pay levels are what they are, ask! Why people feel the need to criticize on social media ...

      I have been working at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I have to say, this is one of the most stress free positions I have had in all my career. I've learned so much about the retail environment in the 2 years I have been here. The owners are approachable, humble, upstanding individuals who I am grateful to have met on more than one occasion. Having over 100 stores in the state of Florida, I'm sure it is no easy task. The opportunity to learn whatever you choose about the...

      Cons

      Everyone always desires to make more money. I believe the company recognizes this. Over time they are working on improving this area.

      Advice to Management

      The company always emphasizes increasing the basket size, which I am a proponent of. I would like to see more consistency amongst the stores in how this is accomplished. Like the waiter who asks "Would you like dessert?" or the fast food, "Would you like fries?" I believe ABC needs to adopt a script other that "Do you have an ABC card?"

      I agree that we need to greet guests at the counter differently. Hopefully guests are greeted as they enter a store or are approached while they are shopping the floor. At checkout, we suggest you ask "did you find everything you were looking for?" this may cause a guest to remember ...

      Pros

      Awesome, fun job. Not that hard. Interesting day to day but I also had a great staff

      Cons

      A 'working break' which was cool with me, I'd rather not clock out

      Advice to Management

      Make the pay bumps a little better... quarter raise for way more responsibility isn't worth it

      Easy job and some customers can be really nice. Enjoy learning about wine and the many different types. Lots of employee classes to attend which are fun
