    I have been working at PLCB part-time

    Pros

    You keep busy! Can get almost full-time hours, at 38 hours max for seasonal. Work is simple, but you do work hard. Lots of physical lifting of heavy cartons.

    Cons

    Work gets monotonous, you're either working the cash register or stocking wine. Co-workers aren't necessarily customer-focused, and management doesn't seem to encourage the high level of customer service that the training indicated.

    I have been working at PLCB part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This job allowed me the freedom to work part time while going to school. This job helped me gain more experience in the customer service environment. I enjoyed learning a lot about wine and spirits in the product education classes supplied by he company.

    Cons

    The stores are often short staffed and the turn over is somewhat high. There is little room for advancement. There needs to be better incentives to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people who are available any time to work and offer more incentives to become TA’s.

    I worked at PLCB part-time

    Pros

    pay wasn't bad and holidays off

    Cons

    managers play favorites and can be rude

    Advice to Management

    would have stayed had I had a work/life balance. I worked full time 3rd shift at another job and was always scheduled mid day when I should have been asleep. Boss knew I worked 3rds. Refused to decrease hours and was always on me about using too many paper bags (only allowed 1 paper bag if 2 glass bottles) though she did not enforce this with anyone else. Made me do pointless things to look busy despite other staff doing nothing.
