    I have been working at Liquorland part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Coles do look after their employees, good systems in place for employee welfare - Small team, working independently often - Supportive environment

    Cons

    -Small team means there was often issues covering shifts, highly inconvenienced at times because of this. -As with any casual job, lots of weekend and night shifts, which may benefit some.

    I have been working at Liquorland part-time

    Pros

    - Working independently often - Decent pay - Get to know customers

    Cons

    - If your not a manager your not getting close to 40 hours a week on your roster and have to fill the rest of the week with trying to pick up shifts elsewhere which can be frustrating some times.

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Liquorland full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great support from middle management - Hard work doesn’t go unrecognised - Lots of recognition given - Pay is decent for retail - Great incentives - Access to great training programs - Reasonable KPIs that are easily achievable

    Cons

    - As a store manager you hold the liquor licence, so if there is a licensing breach within your store it is 100% on you... the company do not take any responsibility for licensing breaches

    Advice to Management

    Education should be nationally recognised eg. Cert l, ll, lll, lV, diploma, etc.

    I have been working at Liquorland part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Decent pay - Good team members

    Cons

    - Very low hours allocated to stores to use per week - Most of the time working alone, can be boring and very threatening when dealing with aggressive or groups of customers - No care given from upper management towards team members - Can be very stressful at times - Nearly all casual shifts will strictly be weekends - A lot of responsibilities put on team members with little to no acknowledgement from upper management

    Advice to Management

    - More allocated hours per week to support team members - Less greediness and more support for the employees - Listen and understand employee concerns - Need a better structure in terms of short term planning - Spend money where the money is actually needed - Care about your lower tier employees more
