Dependent upon management
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 28 August 2017
I began at the Beer Store when the store manager was liked by upper management, so it was great then. But once another new store manager came to my store everything changed. For unjust reasons the district manager did not like my store manager even though I though he was a really great guy. This resulted in always being short staffed because the district manager wouldn't allow him to give more hours out, and my poor store manager was getting watched under a microscope. This caused a poor experience for everyone, the employees and the customers because being short staffed didn't allow us to put new product out because we would always get stuffed with empties and only 2 people working at a time.
So, with that being said, it depends on the store, the people you work with and especially your store and district manager. I actually would not recommend this job based on my experience but I do know people that love the job.
Don't feel valued, bad pay
