Server Team - Just Say NO
Thought this would be the last job where it turned out to be the worst job.

Those that work hard get more work, those that do nothing but suck up are praised and promoted.


No chance for advancement. HR and Management need to start doing there work properly.
Pros
Free Outdoor Parking & Earned Days Off
Cons
Incompetency and kissing up is rewarded and promoted, NO respect from management for staff, Old boys /girls club, too many to mention

Casual
I could only work casually for the AGLC after completing my summer student program. I wish I could have stayed longer. The licensing teams are very unique from one another and they were always willing to assist me. This helped my professional growth so much and I wish I could go back.
Pros
Amazing staff, Great hours, Good learning experiences
Cons
Job availability

Great place for sheep
If you enjoy blindly follow the sheep, this is a place for you. Don't speak up, don't innovate, don't question authority and you'll have a secure job for life. This is a normal government facility with regular pros and cons.
Pros
Job security, free parking, good pay
Cons
Terribly slow internet with tons of restrictions

Excellent job
I would get to work and we'd start by getting any paperwork done until senior inspectors were ready to go do inspections. We'd then all get into a company vehicle and drive to the locations. I learned how to better write paperwork and how to be perceptive of my surroundings while doing inspections. Management was great and very organized as well as friendly. Co-workers were great and friendly. Hardest part of the job was going into really intimidating places with the guise of being underage and trying to get alcohol. Most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with co-workers.
Pros
Flexible hours, high pay for easy work.
Cons
Days could be quite long and you may be out late.

Temp Work Situation
I worked at AGLC on a Temp basis, and I was there for about a year. The staff I worked with were a great group and treated me as one of them. I was disappointed when my term was done.

Fun, laid back
At Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commision, it was a very fun place to work, management wasn't up tight, they were open to ideas. It was interesting to see the inside of Video Lottery Terminals and how they work.

Great life work balance
Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission has wonderful people. If you are looking for perfect life work balance, this is the best place for you. So much politics and much bureaucratics.

Very difficult place to work
The culture of the AGLC, particularly the liquor area, is one of far too many staff members who have been there far too long. There is no opportunity to grow, or to even express new ideas. Bullying is a huge problem and there is excessive turnover. Corporate Services, the last area I worked in, was extremely bad.
