Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not the best but not the worst. Get paid pretty good for the easiness of the job. However god forbid you stop on the floor and chat with a fellow employee for a few minutes......eyes everywhere.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Working till 3am

If you have no life weekends this one is for you

Salary is questionable, Other perks are good (Medical and Dental Benefits) pension matching. You get a Saturday off, once a month. Also if you are on the gaming floor, you must have high tolerance with obnoxious customers

Nice working place different rules because of different unions

Lowest salary for Government job. No Benifits in emergency times like COVID-19.doesn’t care for the lowest position job. Poor coordination from employer to employees. All higher positions get protected from their job.Good working experience in diversity way.good Benifits

Ever so toxic management

The leadership group in the food and beverage department can be very condicending. They manage by discipline, not coaching - honesty gets you disciplined. The staff are very inclusive and newcomers are often belittled and rejected.

Pros

fewer and fewer

Cons

Staff cafeteria closed, only 20% discount on food

Diversity in the workplace is very much practiced. Health insurance is good.

An eight-hr work day is typical. There are day shifts, night shifts and overnight shifts. Diversity is practiced very well. There are in-house on-line learning. the hardest part of the job is surviving a night or overnight shift without getting sleepy. the most enjoyable part of the job is extending a good customer service to patrons and getting tips from them as a gesture of appreciation.

Pros

Good health benefits.

Cons

It's hard to move up the ladder because Seniority is vital, not too many fulltime positions.

Fun place to work building pallets driving the motorized pallet jacks picking bottels of liqour.

A good place to work if you dont mind the people who speak a different languge and laugh behind your back.!!After new years the work really slows down lucky to get 7 hours in you only work 2 or 3 days and its 2 or 3 hours a day..you will only get 20 or 30 hours a week..Things start to pick up when summer starts..

Pros

When the Christmas season starts thats when you make money lots of over time..

Cons

Your hours slow down after new years.Co workers talk behind you back.

Awesome work, great benefits, terrible manager

Loved working at Liquor and Lotteries Warehouse. However, the manager was not keen on me being there and reported me to HR for minor mistakes that I did. That led to me not being rehired due to her pettiness.

Pros

Good pay, great workers, awesome benefits

Cons

terrible evening manager

Don’t bother

Abuse, bullying and lies are part of your daily routine. Staff and mngmt love to gossip. Worst than high school .Too much favouritism. You can move up if you’re a favourite.Too much mngmt positions that do nothing, know nothing. A customer service industry that knows nothing about it. No protection for its employees. Don’t work here and don’t gamble here. FT takes years to get, PT is forced to work

Good place to work

The pay and the benefits are competitive for the position. The hours are structured and you are never forced to stay late or work long hours. They prioritize your work-life balance which is something that I truly appreciate about this organization.

I loved working at the site I was hired. The staff were friendly and supportive. The customers are diverse and interesting. I would definitely suggest working there even for a seasonal position.

Okay

The job was okay though not knowing what was next and what was expected was a bit of a problem Things seemed to be based more on who you knew rather than what you know

Relaxed job with great staff and training

How busy the day is is largely based on customer traffic. Luckily even when the store is empty you can always chat with your fellow staff members, work on stock, review your product knowledge or generally clean the store. MBLL has numerous training programs covering a wide range of topics, including an ever improving Management development program. One particular gem of a program are the product education courses that give staff two opportunities to greatly expand what they know about Wine and Spirits from across the world. Management can be a bit of mixed bag with some managers being a little more hand on and others being rather hands off to outright absent. To their credit the upper management and executives are rather friendly and down to earth. The workplace culture is present, including a list of core values, but unfortunately not really pushed into the minds of staff, myself included, but that is a systemic problem across the company and something that is being working on at all levels. Overall the company has been quite good to me. I feel adequately compensated for the work I do, my work life balance is great, the benefits are fine, and there are usually a number of advancement opportunities across a variety of fields such as Security, IT and Management.

Mbll is a good workplace.

It’s not a stressful environment but it is a collaborative workplace and you have to gel with co-workers to make the job easy for both of you specially when you’re dealing with money and you have to be guest focused and patient with a high customer service value attitude.

Poor

If you are a white male, don't bother applying. Minorities and females only hiring. Very few opens available, does not go by seniority. Very poor communication from the MGT team.
