Worst place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON8 March 2019
There is ZERO room for growth. Unprofessional, unhealthy environment, management is a complete mess..They keep things from Head office to get away with a lot. It’s literally a corrupted location. Stay away from Brampton/Mississauga location. They lie and make it seem like you will have a lot of hours but end up working 3hr shifts. Just stay away.
Pros
Learning about the wine industry, freebies
Cons
Racist and incompetent workers, no growth, hours

Customer Service and Branch Support Staff (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 June 2018
Staff had no support for all the heavy lifting on daily basis.

It was a really good work environment. The employees were very friendly and easy to work with.

Micro managed and mgmt plays favourites
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Beamsville, ON11 January 2017
Worked at the Beamsville/Niagara location as an Assistant Manager. Didn't feel like I was an AM, only when it was convenient for the Store Manager or when she didn't want to do something. Micro managed beyond belief. Wasn't allowed to participate in any decision making. Store manager and upper management played favourites. A few employees got away with everything while others (or most) got heck for even breathing. Pay was good. Work/life balance was mediocre. Was told at hire I would get one weekend off a month, that did not happen. E
Pros
Good pay, friendly customers, not many late evening shifts.
Cons
Long days (sometimes 12 hours), management, favouritism, no trust, micro managed.

Magnotta has a few great individuals working within the organization. Customers were from all over, so it was a great experience to meet different cultures. Lots of selection to learn and there is always something to do. Good job if you enjoy meeting new people.
