Pros: fun employees, easy work, good hours
Cons: minimum wage, bad customers
I worked at The Beer Store for 4 months or so (part-time), and I'll tell you, you get what you expect to get out of the job.
The people I worked with were awesome, very fun, young, and loved to laugh. Manager was awesome, could be tough at times but a very personable and good guy overall. The job was pretty straight forward and the hours were divided – more... fairly in my opinion.
The customers, however, could suck. A LOT. Constantly run into mean and rude people, but that's not The Beer Store's fault, you just have to deal with it. There were problems with people bailing on shifts, which was a pain. Finally, it's minimum wage and the opportunity for advancement is slim-to-none. Don't go in thinking you'll get promoted at some point, because it could be a while before that happens.
In conclusion, if you want a simple and fun part-time job while looking for something more full-time, I would definitely recommend The Beer Store. Especially if you like beer, that helps. – less
