    Favoritism is the key word.

    Pros

    The customers are generally amiable as opposed to other retail stores, save for the occasional rich snob who treats you like dirt. You do learn some interesting things in the classes and just working the floor, and learning to sell is a plus for any job.

    Cons

    Everyone is in it to win it. People will backstab you in this company like nothing I've ever seen. You can take whatever someone said, even if it's positive, out of context and twist it around to get them in trouble. Be careful of EVERYONE you talk to, because a lot of people (INCLUDING the beer distributors and the delivery guys) will talk trash on you. Everyone wants that pay bump and the managers will play favorites to their little pets. Don't even joke around with these people because it will blast their fragile egos to bits. Most store managers are not fit for the job they are doing. They will lie to you to get you to do what they want. They will bully you and guilt trip you. God forbid you need a day off to spend with your kid while they aren't in school, or to finish that big project before your exams, you'll get your hours cut in a heartbeat. The commission system is a joke. You'd be having to work at the company for years to get a fraction of what the senior staff get out of it. It doesn't promote a good work environment and actually puts their employees at odds with one another. The commissions are barely anything and it is based on not just your rank within the store, but how much the upper management likes you. If you meet and exceed your quotas for selling their brands, then they like you a lot. If you are honest with the customers and actually give them what they want, then not so much.

    Pros

    The people were great to work with. They have programs to move you up in the company and are always teaching something new within the beverage industry. Upper management was great.

    Cons

    The pay is not great at the entry level but like I said you can move up quickly.

    Below Poverty pay scale

    Pros

    It is close to home. Co-workers are great. If you like volunteer work this is for you.

    Cons

    What they are willing to pay one can not even afford to pay rent on the local economy. They have extremely high expectations for ten or eleven dollars an hour. A physically demanding job that also requires extensive knowledge, about all things alcohol and excellent customer service skills. You are dealing with drunk people all the time. This is a family owned/operated company and it shows. The top-level clearly do not communicate amongst themselves and they certainly are not held to the same high standards they hold for the store employees. The upper management likes to announce a 'visit' to each store, the 'Big guy' arrives and struts through to observe his kingdom and all the plebians who serve him. He should just pop in unannounced. He should honestly talk to the people working and see how hard people work for such freakishly low pay . ABC could actually pay a decent salary if they stopped wasting time and money and man-hours constantly changing prices. Even though the sales pricing is intended to be for the month, they change almost every day and then forget to update the system and the signs! ABC needs to learn, even a great employee is going to get tired of being worked into the ground for 10 bucks an hour. Extremely high expectations no reward. Overworked underpaid people are unhappy people and they are never going to give their best.
