Not worth it
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Victoria, bc26 February 2019
Working at liquor plus is useless petty drama every day. Something is always going wrong and the managers never know how to deal with it. With a company ran purely by a family and people employed because they’re friends with that family is why their turnover is so high. No one stays because of the management. They work you like a dog and have you doing things that aren’t in your pay grade or your best interest. No advancement is in sight unless you’re happy with no benefits and a 10% discount, even as a supervisor. Don’t bother if you want to stay at a job, if you want to be here for a stop along the way go for it but stay a clerk. Coworkers were not bad but the management is awful.
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
Bad everything else

Great place to learn
Clerk (Former Employee) –  Saanich, BC26 October 2018
The store I worked at had a very nice manager who worked around people’s schedules a lot. It’s a busy job with lots to do, and lots to learn for those who don’t know anything about beer/wines etc. Enjoyed tasting products and using my discount to try new things.
Pros
Discount, tastings
Cons
Laborious

Sales Clerk (Former Employee) –  Victoria26 October 2018
The Clerk job is fairly straight forward, and you can be very busy during Christmas and Summer. Great for students looking for nice managers to work with their schedules. Also good for someone looking to increase their beer/wine knowledge. Learned a lot. Very friendly staff at my store.
Pros
Friendly, Keep Busy, Lots to Learn
Cons
Lot's of Lifting

Abusive manager
Sales Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Courtenay, BC5 October 2018
The manager there was incredibly abusive. She held nothing back when choosing to mock her employees, insult their intelligence, and generally be a terrible person to work for. If it weren't for her, I would have enjoyed working there. The other employees were tolerant of her, clearly afraid of saying anything, should she turn her eye to them.

Not horrible
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC5 October 2018
Unless you are management you will be just a number. Just another staff member who is easily replaced. There are always job openings at LP+ stores because of such massively high turnover. Pay is at the bottom end of the range, though not the absolute lowest, for liquor retail. Depending on the store the management can be good, or rather cold. Very little autonomy between stores, most product is dictated by head office. Good job for a student working part time, someone just starting out in liquor retail, or something to tide you over until you find something else.

Management gets treated like gold by head honchos, but everyone else is replaceable. As is often the case with the big chain stores, like LP+, Liquor Express, and Liquor Depot.

Just awful.
Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC3 October 2018
Manager was awful and drove people to quit. Culture was abysmal and people were chastised for having fun. Never fully staffed, and people were able to call in without consequences. Lots of easy solutions to the numerous problems presented, but no one in management cared to listen. No real sense of authority, and the store was essentially run by the supervisors and a few competent clerks. A change in management all the way up to head office would improve the store and the company significantly.

Coworkers Were Great
Liquor Store Sales Clerk (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC8 July 2018
People were nice to work with. Work could be tedious at times. Lots of closing shifts making it hard to maintain a social life. Just over minimum wage.

Customers were awesome
Supervisor it was my job (Current Employee) –  Courtenay, BC28 July 2017
If it wasn't for Manager who never has any positive feedback or really anything nice to say t was a good place to work. If they hired a new manager the job would be a little more pleasant.
Pros
The customers and fellow staff members
Cons
Definitely the Manager
