good environment and really nice people to work with
Customer Sales (Current Employee), Greater Sudbury, ONFebruary 18, 2015
the beer store was a fun place to work at where both the managers and fellow workers were relate able and shared similar interests. the environment was very friendly and the getting to know more about beer was interesting. sometimes it was difficult to deal with customers when rejecting intoxicated patrons who become very upset and aggressive.

The Beer Store and BDL
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: social gathering every thursday evening
The Beer Store and Brewers Distributor Limited is a high paced environment. High volume invoices with both companies over 20,000 invoices needed to be processed each month. I would ensure all invoices are validated with proper approval levels according to our policy and guidelines. Posted all batches entered into our accounting system. Posted all payment batches. Handle all levels of enquiries between management and vendors and customers effectively.
I learned to to be a team players, how to work and respect my co-workers and all levels of management.
I loved all of my co-workers, we are polite to each other and we are helpful to each other.
The love of my job made my job very enjoyable and looked forward everyday to do my work
The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that at the end of the day I have made a difference both with accomplishing my daily task and working with excellence people.

Cashier (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJanuary 7, 2015
the hardest part of job was being painfully aware of peoples dependencies of alcohol. Great job for students, permanent part time and full time positions are far more secure. Everyone buys beer just like being a garbageman, everyone needs garbage removed.

Pros: breaking bottles, staff, great atmosphere.
Cons: busy, low hours, empties, rude customers
Currently work at the Beer Store and I love my job. It's a love/hate, but it's easy to overcome the hate by breaking bottles in the back. Flexible schedules and great staff.

Productive and fun work place with great fellow employees, making an awesome team to be apart of.
Part Time Retail/Sales Clerk (Current Employee), Elliot Lake, ONOctober 15, 2014
I happily sign in at the beginning of my shift and start off by getting my point of sales station organized and ready to go whether it be on the bottle return side or the full good side. Always remembering to provide great quality customer service and maintaining a clean and organized environment through out the day, I follow safety hazard guidelines and make sure to work together as a team. At this location I learn something new everyday which I enjoy very much. I don't find anything hard about my job anymore but giving the physical strength this job requires it is a great work out challenge. the most enjoyable part of my job is being able to work with very cool and kind people every shift and being able to be apart of making a difference in recycling and fundraising for charities.

Busy workplace
Cashier (Former Employee), Sutton, ONApril 30, 2014
My typical day would start off by grabbing my till from the office and setting up at a cash register. From there on depending how busy it was I would take peoples orders, grab there orders, stock the beer fridge, sort through the empties. At the end of the shifts I would have to sweep and mop and then count my till. Working at the beer store i learned a lot of communication skills by interacting with customers. The management was good, although we were short staffed a lot of the time. The coworkers were great. They were very nice and understanding when I would need help with things. The hardest part of the job was learning about everything. All the different types of beers, where everything was kept, etc. The most enjoyable part was the coworkers and the shifts were great. They worked around your schedule if you had some conflicts.
