A typical day at BWS included making sure the palettes out the back were unpacked and the stock put away, fill and face the shelves and cold room, serve customers, cash handling and eftpos, stock rotation, general cleaning, opening and closing, safe and till balancing.
Customer service (Current Employee) – Palm Beach QLD – 19 August 2018
Overall i'm very happy with my current job at BWS. The team is good, good work place and I really enjoy working there. My only 'issue' is that I want more hours during the day time as i'm currently only getting late night shifts.
It’s ok, if you love being alone and working this job if for you
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Victoria – 14 August 2018
Good job if you really enjoy people & alcohol otherwise wouldn’t bother even if it is an easy job to get. Good money aswell for practically standing and scanning alcohol and then restocking empty shelves. But I end up talking to wine bottles from boredom so beware *all depends on store if it’s a busy one though
Good money, Friendly Customers, Easy enough
Worrying about safety as your by yourself most of the time, Horrible customers who think they’re gods gift to the world, Extremely boring by yourself for hours
rewarding, challenging, ability to adapt, customer engagement, fun. a job were you use and utilise your own skills and abilities to achieve sales and better customer experience, be authentic and always learning.
Great place to work. Fun and busy work environment. Great career advancement opportunities for hard workers. Fabulous staff and management . Regularly promotes from within, and mentors talented staff members

Friendly people, both as a customer and when i was an employee.
Service assistant (Former Employee) – Midland WA – 3 May 2018
I have shopped there in the past frequently and have always been satisfied with the service. When i began work there, i found the methods of training to be very productive and informative. A clean and well managed establishment, which i encourage others to take advantage of if they desire to develop a good work ethic.
the management and higher-ups at bws tended to be a bit hit-and-miss what do you got a good one or not especially since the managers get moved around. the work itself it's not that bad but the environment was toxic and left you more stressed out.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Dickson ACT – 6 March 2018
Good at working for Woolies, friendly co-workers, good managers. Learned how to deal with very rude customers. The hardest part of my Job is having to work evenings and not been able to see my family the three nights a week.
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Parramatta NSW – 25 February 2018
Good place to work. Typical day begins with customer service, filling, faceups and meeting variety of customers in fast paced customer service environment. Learned to provided responsible service of alcohol.
flexibility, meeting people, fun and supportive culture
I really enjoyed working for BWS, was physical. I always worked with great people. I learned a lot working for BWS. I always thought i was looked after by management quite well. The only reason I stopped working there is because I wasn't getting a lot of work.
Retail Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 7 February 2018
Working at Bws has its ups and downs. Its kind of a physical job (a lot of heaving lifting on load days) so you get a good workout from it. Its flexible if you have another job or studying. The hours are great, the store I'm at closes at 10pm so obviously no overnight or extremely late hours. Dealing with customers can go smoothly if you handle the situation with confidence= which is important with this job as you have to check ID. You learn so many different types of alcoholic beverages and through time you get familiar with most product knowledge. Management is okay but sometimes hours would get cut but most staff are really friendly and helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to recommend drinks to customers who aren't familiar with the drinks and every now and then getting this customers who are so lovely and make your day by actually treating you with kindness (If you work within Retail/Hospitality you know what I mean!)
Long hours=long breaks, Good salary, Multiple locations
Heavy lifting, A lot of product knowledge to remember/learn
Not a good place to work. Just a place to get some experience. Expanded my sales abilities. But nothing further. Long hours expected. Breaks were few and far between. Don't comply with rule of law or regulations. Loathe to give holidays. Refuse to accept ideas for expansion or growth.
Sales Assistant, Woolworths Young (Current Employee) – Young NSW – 4 February 2018
My work place is a happy, easy going enviroment where i have learnt incrediable communication skills and technological use and throughout that have discovered a love for customer rapport and giving out thorough information to other's in the best way i possibly could. However i have out grown my current career and am enthusiastic about taking on a more challanging line of work. Especially one that i am passionate about.
