Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – February 3, 2016
You learn a great deal by interacting with customers of different ethnicities. Social skills improve immensely as a result. Learning about wines, spirits and beer can also help with learning about the world around you and how others live. The work environment could be a lot better & allow for employees to be more productive.
Great place to learn how to be successful in the alcohol beverage industry.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – February 3, 2016
Many different types of responsibilities and great place to learn about the industry. Fantastic training system in place teaching you about the products and also policies the LCBO has in place. The hardest part about the job was working the cash at Christmas time and before new years.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – January 14, 2016
It was great working there. I had a fair and great manager and the staff were helpful and very friendly. The winter fixed term contract is too short, but there are prospects of re hiring in early March late February. But no guarentee.
work environment is not good at LCBO Private Ordering
Clerk, Private Ordering (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – January 4, 2016
I like the actual job/work which is data entry and payment. Management is so disorganized. Supervisor is very rude and unprofessional. Co-workers are fun to work with. The hardest part of the job is lack of proper training.

Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Coniston, ON – October 25, 2015
excellent place to work. I had the opportunity to meet many people, loved the work environment and the other staff I worked with. I learned a great deal what to help customers with in making selections. It can become a very busy place especially during holiday/long weekend times, but in general, it was an absolute pleasure to work there.
Cashier, handling stock (Former Employee) – Buckhorn, ON – October 8, 2015
The LCBO gave me a lot of reponsibility which was a good learning experience for me. While taking the job of serving alcohol in a safe envornment my co-workers always made me feel welcome. It was always fun to go to work. I enjoyed keeping busy and having the opportunity to take on different tasks every shift.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – September 14, 2015
Union philosophy throughout the organisation, horrible upper management uses bully tactics on store managers, expected workload hampered by "Policy a week" standards. Zero management training or backup from District Managers. No reward for hard work and no incentives for employees. Supply chain management is a joke, with no accountability from anyone in charge.
Too many to list. Run, run fast from this pseudo company
Ability to work with others whether it be staff or customers
Casual CSR - Part Time (Current Employee) – Oakville – July 19, 2015
I enjoy having the ability to help others find what they are looking and/or giving them my input into on new items. The staff are fantastic to work with and learning from them are great! The store manager is fantastic and is very informative!
Customer Service Representative (Part-time) (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – June 18, 2015
LCBO was a great work environment. Working at LCBO allowed me to advance my knowledge in product and sales. I also became more confident with my customer service skills which is crucial in any environment that involves dealing with customers/staff/employees etc.
good job oppurtunity
difficult to advance in a secure title when working part time/seasonal
