Wine Merchant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 30 May 2019
The wine rack is a fine place to work. But it’s just that; fine. Don’t count on getting your breaks or having team members that support each other because entire staff, excluding management, is part time and will usually have other jobs. The company is constantly understaffed and switches managers around constantly. On the plus side, you will never be fired because the company is completely unwilling to fire anyone even if they are a danger or a nuisance. That being said, the staff is usually the best part of the job along with fun events and regulars that will eventually make your heart happy. I can’t say there’s anything horrible about working here. There’s certainly room for improvement.
Employees were rude and rough to work with. Manager is not suitable for this position as she cannot manage her workload nor do basic store responsibilities and puts all her work on her inferiors. She let 30 minutes into my second training shift and expected me to self teach all protocol.
