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.

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.

It was a great experience to work there

It was a very team oriented workplace, good benefits and salary was good. It can be a very high stressed place to work sometimes, sometimes there was too many projects and too little resources.

Ridiculous

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

Micromanagement galore

Micromanagement galore, ever have 2 levels of management in the same room telling you to do different things then congratulating themselves, because it can never be done. Called back from holidays for no reason.

Positive working experience. Providing customer service.

Enjoyed working at MLLC. Great working environment. Interacting with customers as well as the staff of MLLC. I also facilitated Customer Service Standards Training. My last position at MLLC was as a Corporate Security Ambassador. This job involved working as a host to MLLC head Offices as well as providing a Security and Customer service presence at Corporate sites. Also worked in Security at the Casinos as a Security Officer as well as a Security Supervisor. This entailed inter acting with customers of the Casinos as well as counselling guests re: gambling and would refer guests seeking additional gambling information and help to The Addiction Counsellers on site for professional help.

Pros

Interacting with and assisting guests of the Casino.

Cons

Midnight shift otherwise tremendous positive experience working in the Casino Environment.
