The Beer Store – Why Work With Us?


Time-Tested, Beer-Lover Approved

Becoming experts on beer doesn’t happen overnight. We’ve been in business since 1927 and we’re owned by 33 Ontario-based brewers. The Beer Store employs 7,000 hard-working Ontarians with well-paying full and part-time jobs.

There’s no other team of beer experts who live and love all things beer as much as we do. We love beer as much as you — so you know we’ll always be dedicated to bringing you your favourite brands from brewers around the world and offer tips on how to enjoy them responsibly.

Facts and Figures

The Beer Store was established in 1927, which means we’ve been around longer than the Internet. And television. And a lot of other things (probably even you!).

Here’s something for the number crunchers to chew on: We operate over 450 retail stores, serve 20,723 licensed customers, 650 government-owned LCBO retail locations, 141 retail partners, and 71 Northern Agents.

Environmental Responsibility

In April of 2014, the Two Billionth liquor container was returned to the Beer Store under the Bag It Back program — the highly successful deposit return program for wine, spirit and beer containers sold through LCBO and Ontario winery stores.

Since we’ve been in business, we’ve kept approximately 70 billion beer bottles from ending up in Ontario landfill sites. If you were to stretch all those bottles out, it would be about 25 trips to the moon and back.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We take corporate social responsibility seriously, and make sure that every beer we sell is a responsible sale — whether it’s through our WeID 25 program or refusing to sell to intoxicated customers. In 2015, we refused service to almost 50,000 individuals at our retail locations.

We let brewers decide where they want to sell their product! Brewers can be in one store, 50 stores or all 450 locations of the Beer Store — it’s completely up to them.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Beer Store (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    Very brief. Literally hired on the spot. Most of the time the turn-over is way too high, so they hire wherever and whenever they can. If you intend to move up, please advise you will wait too long to get there. Just better to stick to regular retail.
