    Center Store Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Winn-Dixie.

    Interview Details

    For me, the hiring process was quick. I listed my brother, who was a grocery manager at the time, as a contact and that got me an interview quick because the hiring manager knew him. They just asked me some basic questions, like if I had any experience, what my best qualities are, what my worst ones are.

    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Winn-Dixie in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview went well, the people are nice but I would ask to see the actual work area you would be occupying. The carpet is so dirty and old I'm sure that is why the people here remain sick all the time! People with allergies can barely breath. Get your duties in writing, I was told one thing and I do far less.

    Assistant Produce Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Winn-Dixie in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The process involves submitting standard job application with a resume and cover letter included. If your experience, education and skill set are a good match for the job requirements and obligations, you'll move on to an online test. The test consist of an array of questions that test for specific personality traits and behavioral. Also, you're asked a series of basic math and verbal questions. If you receive notification that you've based the test, then you'll move on to a 1:1 phone interview with an individual from the HR department at the corporate office. If you pass the phone interview, you are then scheduled to move onto a 1:1 interview with the store director of the location that you applied for. This interview is generally followed by a group interview with an HR director and the district director of the department you'll be managing. I passed all the interviews and accepted the job offer via phone. The process is rather extensive and complicated for the level of work required.

    If you have a sufficient amount of industry experience (especially in retail or restaurant management), you're likely to get a hire starting rate than those who do not. Also, individuals applying internally traditionally get a smaller hourly increase than those applying externally.

    Corporate Communications Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Winn-Dixie in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The company is still rebounding and rebuilding from bankruptcy, so money is tight. They are in competition with WalMart and Publix, and have a lot of work to do!

    Also, it seems the company believes in having many people involved in a single hiring decision. I met with 8 people total during the process and had two in-person interviews. That is, after passing a phone screen with a recruiter and then one with the hiring manager. This was for a middle management position.

    My 1st meeting involved a series of six 1-hour interviews with a mix of dept staff, HR mgmt, the hiring mgr and key internal customers. My 2nd meeting was 4 hours long, and including repeat meetings with 3 people plus meeting a Group VP. Some interviewers took a more formal approach with behavior-based questions, but others seemed like they had chosen/composed their own questions.

    It seems like the director-level staff and above work very long hours. There are people in the company who have been there for many years, and they often think very differently about the business than the newer staff who've joined the company during or after the bankruptcy. The new people seemed very sharp and many joined from high-profile companies around the U.S.

    Pluses of working there: Everyone dresses business casual and the company offers employees a 5% store discount on groceries. The headquarters office has an onsite pharmacy and a decent cafeteria.

    Interview Questions

    The interview is really simple, the manager only asked me how often I could work and continued to have a little conversation. At the end, she said how she noticed I smiled often and was easy to talk to and hired me.
