Pros: good co-workers, generally nice customers, flexible
Cons: minimum wage, no benefits, part time only
I worked for the BevMo in Elk Grove (off East Stockton Blvd).
The job itself was not hard, most of the "work" as register/cashier. At times you would perform other tasks like stocking, cleaning, etc.
There were usually 3-4 people per shift: One checker, one of the sales floor, and one manager, and occasionally another person helping out around.
It – more... was exclusively part time, majority of people would only get between 12-20 hrs per week (which consisted mostly of 4 hr shifts) unless you were a manager or you "endured" yourself for lack of a better term. Saying that, don't expect much, you don't get benefits or anything unless you are a manager (full time). The one upside is that at my store they were flexible with schedules. If you had school or another job they were flexible to that.
The job in itself was rather slow. The majority of the clientele was older (over 55). There would be times where there would be no people for close to an hour.
Pay is minimum wage.
The management was very cool. They helped you whenever you asked as did the more experienced co-workers.
All that together, I would say this is NOT a career job unless you really like it. If you're in your 20's or 30's and want to make a little extra money on the side then this is for you. It's a good flexible second job but after that.....that's pretty much it. – less
