Does Liquorland offer employee discounts?

Pros

Decent rate of pay for casuals.

Cons

Often you are working alone with threats from aggressive and intoxicated /drug affected people. Must work a minimum 6 hours before a meal break. You waver the right for an earlier break when you join. You can revoke this in writing. Management never gave the staff where I worked their entitled short breaks (10-15 mins) after 4 hours. Required to close stores by yourself in some dodgy areas. Have to close the store to go to the toilet Pressure on you to work at other stores - some which are 30 mins drive from your home store - no allowance to drive to these other stores. Pressure from management to comply. Lousy 5% discount which most members of the public can get anyway by purchasing gift cards online through various websites. Bullying is commonplace at most stores I frequented. Casuals were never offered the chance to go permanent. I suspect most people on here giving this company 4-5 stars have never worked anywhere else. My advice is to move on as soon as something better comes along. There are so many better employers out there who respect their staff.

Advice to Management

Start treating your staff with respect

How are senior leaders perceived at Liquorland?

Pros

Good pay ($27/hr, $35 on Sundays), flexible with hours generally

Cons

Some stores overstaffed, managers in my experience have been unpleasant from their self importance. Area managers look down at you and store managers seem to think they're above doing usual labor intensive tasks, leaving them to the bust afternoon shift workers, which makes you feel like you're in a 6 hour constant rush to finish jobs from earlier. Also you're working for Coles which imo is an awful company

Advice to Management

It's always somewhat amusing the condescending tone managers use towards causal staff, who are mostly University students working until they finish their degree and move into better full time roles elsewhere

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Liquorland?

Pros

Worked here for a few months. Good pay, hours if you want it. This isn't a job you want to stuff around in. Great training and I've learnt a lot of things in just the time I've worked here. Everyone works hard and I think our store is a great team.

Cons

There's lots of responsibility, which can either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your views. You have to learn a *lot*, and it's a bit of an extra step from working in normal retail. It is a bit overwhelming and you're expected to learn a lot quickly.

Advice to Management

Take it a bit easier with training. Online modules don't reflect as much in store.

How is management perceived at Liquorland?

Pros

When team and some customers are good can be a friendly environment Some discounts, learn about lots of products

Cons

Overwork managers and have so many redundant protocols and tasks. Area managers are consistently awful and certain store managers do dodgy practices to appear better than others and take their job way too seriously given the average management salary (especially average given the risk associated with being the licensee)

Advice to Management

Budget more staff hours and implement appropriate security cameras for theft
