    State employee benefits are awesome. Super supportive work environment. Very willing to work with people who have little to no experience in the field.

    Haven't been here long enough to determine if there are any cons.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Washington State Liquor Control Board full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in one of the retail stores. You're petty much on your own and I like that. If you have a question or need help usually someone will help you.

    Cons

    Once you're hired on, it seems like it is almost immpossible to get fired. I mean I seen people get away with alot! It is frustrating to everyone, especially the manager who wants them fired! And for very good reason too!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Washington State Liquor Control Board part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were great. The management and co workers made the job fun and and were very supportive of each other.

    Cons

    Poor decision making from the Legislature. The stores were not allowed to carry the extra items associated with liquor sales.

    Advice to Management

    To the state, don't allow the Legislature to control a retail operation. Hire a retail person to manage the inventory assortment.


  5. "Lots of voter initiative, legislative and organizational changes make it a challenging organization to work for."

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Washington State Liquor Control Board full-time

    Pros

    If you embrace change, this could be a good place to work. There are many opportunities if you are strong enough to push yourself and your agenda.

    Cons

    If you are resistant to change, or not one who pushes yourself and your agenda you may not like this organization. You may need to do so at the expense of others you work with. If you do push yourself and agenda, use care and be aware of political agendas, you may be allowed to go a direction that later has negative impact on your employment.

    Advice to Management

    Honesty, integrity and transparency are critical in any organization.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Washington State Liquor Control Board (More than a year)

    Pros

    Would have been a stable job if the public had not voted me out of a job and in to unemployment.

    Cons

    The alcoholics in the state got to vote me out of a job. No thought to liquor control and the employment rate.

    Pros

    High level of pride in achieving and maintaining excellence in operations, employee recognition, maximizing efficiency while minimizing costs, progressive thinking, flexibility to accept change, positive work culture, and accountability.

    Cons

    Low pay, constant unwarranted criticism from an uneducated and uninformed public, viewed negatively simply because we are a government agency, overlooked for our many accomplishments and contributions to our communities and the state in general.
