    I worked at BevMo! part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours if you need them for school/a second job, etc.
    Opportunities for advancement, if you are interested.
    A great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Hours can be really bad during the summer.
    Favoritism (from my point-of-view): a couple of co-workers seemed to get away with being lazy, acting unprofessional, etc.
    Corporate needs to make themselves more available to our concerns and questions.

    Advice to Management

    Not really to my management, but corporate: Listen to your stores and be more flexible in giving them the resources they need. Hours, for example, was the biggest issue for my store.

    I have been working at BevMo! part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Have learned a great deal about tasting wine/beer/spirits and drink making.

    Cons

    Can be a stressful work environment because there is always something to be done (even with customers in the building). Often labor-intensive. Low pay when compared to other retail jobs in the area, but significantly more effort is required. Employees are expected to know a great deal about the products, tasting notes, drink recipes, etc.. Employee discount barely covers state sales tax (let alone Washington 20.5% liquor tax), and often it's cheaper to go to Total Wine or another store because their prices are less than what we pay after our discount. In general, not worth working here unless you're trying to move up the ladder to become a full-time store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay for key-carrying managers. Make sure stores have enough employees to keep it running. Don't expect "part-timers" to work close to or above 40 hours and not provide benefits. Make it mandatory to have work schedules made 2+ weeks in advance.
