    I have been working at The Beer Store part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Shifts are very easy to drop if an emergency arises
    Very dependent on your co workers who could make or break your experience
    Union job so feel quite protected in your role
    Good first job environment with some basic skills to learn (cash handling, customer service etc)

    Cons

    Since it is a union don't expect to get a ton of hours when you first start off
    Some full timers are incredibly lazy and there is nothing you can do about it
    Drunk customers harassing employees

    I have been working at The Beer Store full-time

    Pros

    The Beer Store has an excellent approach to work-life balance and inclusion. They are accommodating and very willing to help employees grow in their careers. They provide a solid pension and benefits program, along with a yearly bonus system.

    Cons

    The company has an "old-school" style mentality, and new innovations are slow to take hold. It often takes longer than it should for change to occur, and employees are often not held to the same performance standards.
