    I worked at BevMo! full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Still has a great selection of wine and spirits

    Cons

    The management is passive and unexperienced. Maybe the say all the right things to get the position but don't possess any real problem solving skills. Most of them preferring to be "friends" with staff over actually managing the store. Store theft is up by both customers and employees because again, Bevmo prefers to hire rather weak and passive managers who always say "yes" and offer no real new ideas. The aesthetics of Bevmo stores are also on the decline and what moron that it was a good idea to put a 100 bottle of wine on the sales floor instead of inside a locked case? News flash! Unless Bevmo starts hiring intelligent managers with a backbone Total Wine will overtake them in a matter of years.

    I worked at BevMo! full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -With enough time you will learn a lot about alcohol, provided you learn on your own. Don't expect corporate to assist. -I had some great store level managers in my 5 years

    Cons

    -DMs considered it easier to deal with a horrible employee by hoping they quit rather than to fire and then hire a new one, putting strain on store staff and locking them into a hostile environment. This happened at two different stores I worked in. -Employee discount is poorly executed. Just do 10% above cost and call it a day. -You are treated as a body. Not as a human. They will sacrifice your personal life, your health, and anything else they can to keep the store running on barebones hours during crisis or natural emergencies. No power? Show up and work in the dark. Being evacuated from your house? Sorry need you to pause gathering your stuff and show up.

    Pros

    Laid back environment You learn a lot about liquor, beer, and wine (if you take the time to learn) Not a difficult job

    Cons

    Pay isn’t great Not much room for growth It’s retail so you deal with rude customers and the company doesn’t really care that much about you

    Pros

    The customers are easy to work with

    Cons

    No matter how hard you worked there was often no recognition. They would constantly never know that actual company policies, and lie about them actively. On multiple occasions I had to pull up the employee handbook or something off zipline for them to be honest.
