Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Niles, IL – July 10, 2017
Typical day for cashiers: ring at your drawer, stock occasionally, help with carry-outs, do your job, be on time, and make sure your drawer balances. Those are the two most important things there. And good customer service
SOFTWARE ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Niles, IL – June 29, 2017
A great corporate culture, which helps deal with an almost obsessive devotion to the work by most management. The people in charge obviously enjoy what they are doing, and that enthusiasm works its way into everything they do.
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 19, 2017
The Store Associate position is very faced paced with customers coming and going throughout multiple shifts. You have the opportunity to learn about store products and how liquor retail works. The culture is very relaxed despite being very faced paced. There are some challenging customer concerns and attitudes, but not often. The management is very helpful and flexible long with other store associates.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Evergreen Park, IL – February 15, 2017
I have worked at Binny's for less than 6 months and have mostly worked as a cashier. They have strict rules regarding cash short and over and how they handle these. Binny's has a wide variety of liquor wine and beer. In addition, Binny's has many experts that help customers to get the best products available. The management is always willing to help in guiding when challenges come up. The store is clean and well faced. The prices are very competitive.
Cigar Department Manager (Former Employee) – Niles, IL – January 30, 2017
Enjoyed working for this company. Everyone was a team player and were always willing to help out a person in need whether it was an employee or customer. Managment was always helpful. Only issue I had with the company was they did not like the fact of my school schedule as I was attending college for my medical billing and coding certificate.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Algonquin, IL – December 21, 2016
This was still retail, but I have worked in enough retail settings to see what distinguishes Binny's. Specialists appreciate their inventory, and I enjoyed learning from them in conversation. Supervision was present and involved. Weekend tasting events were fun. Benefits, promotions, and extra hours were available. shifts were reasonable and accommodated my school schedule. Work could be slow and tedious at worst.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 29, 2016
Great work life balance. Growing company. Advancement a little rough. Fun company to work for and the product knowledge is abundant. Plenty of growth in company to allow for transfers but moving up can be a struggle. Pay is very low compared to similar retail management jobs.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Glen Ellyn, IL – October 6, 2016
Binny's does a great job of hiring and promoting the right people for the company and the customer. All of the permanent/ long term staff are very competent, and the management is some of the best in all of retail.
There is a great balance between work and life, time off is always available, and so are extra hours if you want them.
I was offered advancement to full time within 2 months of being hired, because I worked very hard, invested my own time into product knowledge, and showed initiative to help in every department.
Co-workers are like family, and they are all very nice, supportive, and a pleasure to work with, as well as a great source of knowledge on product, and salesmanship.
Overall, Binny's is an amazing company.
Great co-workers, great management, great environment.
