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.

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.

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.

Management is awful

I currently work at MBLL, I think that Management and Human Resources are the worst I’ve ever seen. If they like a certain employee that person gets treated like gold, if not liked as much, you might as well hide under a rock somewhere. If you like to be a but kisser, whistleblower this is the place for you.if you’re a casual employee you get 0 benefits and it takes a long time to get part time, so you could get your benefit package. I enjoy working with the people, but hate being treated like a doormat.

Pros

Great wages

Cons

Management, No benefits for casual, long hours, Human Resources are terrible

Great Entry Level Job for Students

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.
