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.
Good pay, great workers, awesome benefits
terrible evening manager
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
Overall I think that Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries is a great place to work. They have great employee benefits and the wages is fair. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Can be fun
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.
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.
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.
Avoid working in Food and Beverage, seriously. It’s a shhhT show. Days off are like pulling teeth, way too many black out dates, the less senior you are the more shhht you gotta take. Management and supervisors hardly communicate with each other let alone other staff. Favoritism, racism (cliques) is a big thing, harassment from guests is accepted. Just don’t bother. Save your sanity
At Casino, i was able to meet a lot of people, i have grown personally, was able to know about responsible gaming, thought me to deal with hard to deal clients,
The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people everyday. Working as a team in whatever the situation or task may be Being able to assist guests and make their stay more enjoyable Benefits are great
