Fun job with interesting things to learn about alcohol
Key Holder (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 July 2017
A typical day at work varies between being quiet and having time to complete all required tasks as needed, to being so busy you barely get a chance to leave your till.
You get to learn some interesting things about liquor production as well as how to prepare drinks.
Management varied greatly; each manager & assistant manager I've dealt with prioritises different aspects of company policy while not worrying about other policies.
Workplace culture can be good, but some employees can be trying on the nerves. Ability to shelf ones feelings and muscle through working with them almost required.
A degree of difficulty emerges when you are given a multitude of tasks to complete on the busiest days of the week, and you need to find a balance between completing your work while assisting customers.
While some employees can be trying, the majority are upstanding folks. It's easy to become friends outside of work with your coworkers.
