      I have been working at The Beer Store full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great corporate culture - very fun and relaxed. There isn't a great deal of office politics and many people have very good relationships with their teams. There is an opportunity for growth within the organization and it is encouraged, depending on what your goals are.

      Cons

      It is an older company, so it holds on to some antiquated ideas and has a very hierarchical structure. The state of the beer market in Ontario is changing, so jobs within the company will also be shifting. There is also sometimes a lack of communication and consistency between the departments, and change can occur at a very slow pace.

      Advice to Management

      Create a more flat management structure. Encourage excellent and innovation instead of stifling it. Keep a relaxed culture but encourage more open communication.

        I have been working at The Beer Store part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        - it's an easy job

        Cons

        - at this location some of the people (ie. most) are pretty racist and sexist and it takes about 3 seconds to see this - especially working in a neighbourhood with a high indian population... // no one seems to care about this or reprimand employees who speak in such ways

        Advice to Management

        cultural diversity in the work place!!!

        The work is not hard, relaxed atmosphere if it is not rush hour.

        Terrible customers, management varies from store to store. No room for promotion unless you’re related to someone of power.
