    I worked at Liquor Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to get into retail, they will give you a chance, and even let you open the store by yourself in short order.

    Cons

    I explained my schedule when I was interviewed, but they kept scheduling me when I said I couldn't work. The bosses can't stand to see anyone idle, so they come up with some inane busy work.

    I have been working at Liquor Depot part-time

    Pros

    Discount on product which is cost + 8%
    Bigger discounts on preferred items(spirits wine and beer exclusive to Liquor Depot)
    Flexible hours
    Tastings(depends on store)

    Cons

    Poor pay (min wage)
    Wage increases are pretty much non existent
    Poor Training(no knowledge of product is really given)
    Limited training is given in online modules (difference between an ale,lager and description of what spirits are made of)
    High turnover of employees (due to poor pay)

    Advice to Management

    Pay you're employees more than minimum wage and then you will see less turnover of employees within the company. Also provide more extensive training i.e. knowledge of wines.
