"I started as a casual at the Bedford Place store in 2011. Since then, I've worked in four different stores each offering a new, fun and challenging experience. 

The NSLC offers its team members numerous opportunities to engage in various roles, while providing knowledge and support in developing the necessary skill set for career advancement. The NSLC’s focus on creating a positive work environment for every employee has made coming to work an enjoyable experience for me day after day.

My favorite part about working in our stores is the product knowledge. I enjoy educating customers about the various products we offer and during occasions with friends and family. Having a customer return to the store to thank me for a previous suggestion always makes my day!"

"I started as a casual at the Tacoma Drive store in 1998, and in 2005 I got a position at the Distribution Centre. I love the fast-paced work environment of the DC. No day is the same! I enjoy loading and unloading trailers, fulfilling orders and getting them shipped to our stores, all while being a safety ambassador every day.

I enjoy coming to work everyday and the team I work with makes my days fun and engaging. It’s great to see the collaborative efforts we put in to achieve a common goal."

“Working with the NSLC team is a privilege. The privilege comes from the sense of pride we share in providing exceptional service to Nova Scotians. We have a culture of respect and responsibility, and we work hard to have our customers feel that as well.

I am fortunate that my time with the NSLC started as a casual employee in our retail network while pursuing my education. When the opportunity arose to join the Human Resources Team and work with Learning and Development in 2016, I jumped at the chance to rejoin an exceptional team spread across the province. My role here has – and continues to be – exciting and diverse. No two days are the same. I collaborate across the business to improve the knowledge, skills and abilities of our team for our continued success.”

Christy Pippy – Manager, Learning and Development
