Store Level Employee (Current Employee) – Manitoba – 19 April 2018
Bar none, this employer is the best option for University students in Winnipeg and Brandon. The extended store hours mean that there are plenty of shifts available to work around class times. There are many stores in Winnipeg, making it easy to pick up additional shifts on a casual basis. Time off for exams and study is rarely an issue, and the busiest times of the year are during the summer and wonder holiday seasons when students are free to pick up plenty of additional shifts. Great management advancement opportunities exist for those so inclined.
Becoming an alcoholic is complementary with the job
Did work there (Former Employee) – Shhitstore – 28 April 2018
Will replace you in an instant, since lotteries joined with liquor has been terrible. Corporate bullies and they do not help if your suffering stress or any mental illness. No diversity in head office all white rich people with no souls
Summer Student - Service Desk Technician (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 7 February 2017
As service desk, I worked 8 hours a day. The duties which I regularly performed includes detecting, recording, classifying, routing, prioritizing, matching, resolving and closing incoming IT related support calls as possible, automated system alerts, service requests, and capital project requests.
Overall, my work term as Service Desk in Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries has been a valuable learning experience. My job duties developed my interpersonal skills, decision-making and technical skills. There may be challenges in this job but it takes patience, flexibility and humility – knows how to accept negative feedback in order to fulfill the duties satisfactorily without conflict.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when interacting with end users and resolving their technical or non-technical issues as possible.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 3 February 2017
You get adequate training for the job you do. It's a little challenging to do recommendations since you wouldn't know every single product in the store, but usually what you suggest is what they're searching for.
A dynamic workplace with lots of potential for development

Acting Manager (Current Employee) – Grant Park Liquor Mart – 28 September 2015
A typical day at a Liquor Mart obviously has it's ups and downs. There are hard situations to deal with; from having to refuse a customer to checking I.D. on a daily basis, but these hard situations don't come without their rewards. The MBLL prides itself on it's social responsibility, and we as employees are the front-line protection for underage or intoxicated customers. The management system is hierarchical, and seniority/longevity is how hours and salary are determined; but if you're willing to put in the time with a company like this, you'll be greatly rewarded, not only in the unionized atmosphere but also in the employee incentive programs.
I enmjoyed working and been more familier with somany things: Daily banking Activities, Bank Deposits preparation, Working on Lawson Accounting software, Excel, Words, Bank and other monthly and periodical reconciliations, Account receivables, Answering phones of customers, customer service, adjustments and journal entries and many more things.
