Pros

Benefits above average for the area, even an allowance for wine purchases, pay above average for the area. Company enourages volunteering in community (with some restrictions during work hours) and contributes financially to many worthy causes. Great potential to learn about the alcoholic beverage industry.

Cons

Management is out of touch with those on the front line. Birthright is not a guarantee of competent leadership. When goals are not being met, pressure from upper management explodes and stress becomes horrific - plan on working extra hours, getting frowned upon for needing to leave for doctor appt's and kids' functions. Paper diplomas have a higher value than loyalty to the company, long time employment, and common sense. If you are young and hip, apply and pad your resume for 3-5 years and leave. That's the pattern now. What was a wonderful place to work has become a merely paycheck to so many. And if asked for an opinion, just smile and nod and agree with the management person asking - they don't want to hear the truth. I have seen some bright, talented, experienced people leave for simply telling the truth.

Advice to Management

LISTEN to the front line people. Enough with the flashy parties and trying to get the company name plastered on everything imaginable. Mr. Marvin Sands was a kind, compassionate, brilliant man and truly cared for the people who worked for him. The culture today is pure business, cold and ruthless.

    Pros

    At Wine Rack it is the colleagues and customers that make the best reason for working at Wine Rack

    Cons

    Pay raises for Wine Merchants stop after four years = no reward for loyalty, customers like to be remembered its like the TV Show 'Cheers' where everyone knows your name - Wine Merchants Have to come to work even if sick and spread it to colleagues and customers

    Advice to Management

    Have senior management work in stores for a month with no special treatment and find out what the job as a Wine Merchant actually consists of - and why the pay is not comparable with LCBO
