    I worked at BevMo! full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun industry to learn about. All my managers were always flexible with school and other jobs. Good stepping stone to other more career-oriented jobs. Team is fun to work with.

    Cons

    Pay is way below average market resulting in high turnover rates. Hours for part time associates are extremely low. Expectations are extremely high for management. Store are consistently being asked to do more and are be given less (i.e. payroll hours).

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of your customers. This is more of a message to Corporate whom has been increasingly focused on sales alone.

    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.
