I worked at Liquor Depot full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great learning experience if you want to know about wine and liquor. Some locations are better than others for learning about wine for instance.

Cons

Management of the company was pretty ridiculous sometimes. They order product company wide instead of catering to what each individual store needs. This causes extremely stressful and frustrating stock conditions.

Advice to Management

Listen to your store management and realize that you don't quite have a grip on what's going on at the store level..

    Pros

    If you want to get a management title, or if you are fresh out of school and living at home. For a part time job it would be nice if you re fine with the type of wage for the industry, and if the hours and location are convienient.

    Cons

    The product is overpriced and you need to explain why to the customers. It is difficult to explain why because the wages paid are not living wages. Usually a shoe string staff working for low wages, unreliable people are attracted to work there, and any no shows or sick call-in's result in the manager working a double shift... with no extra pay or time off in lieu.

    Advice to Management

    Shut down the 'boys club' and take some of the money you spend on the head office club house and spread it around to the staff.
