    Pros

    has great employees, great benefits and retirement

    Cons

    not remembering how the company started and hiring outside management from failing companies.

    Advice to Management

    Winco need to promote and train within the company and stop hiring and promoting management to run our company when they have no ideas why the company is successful. It takes longer then a year to understand why we are what we are.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at WinCo Foods.

    Interview

    Came in for my interview, they had me fill out a basic questions sheet, that asked for availability, and if you except X wage, as well as other basic questions like you see someone you know stealing, what do you do? And things like that. Then the manager looked it over and asked a few more very basic questions (a time you assisted an upset customer; when was a time you were in a stressful situation and what did you do). He let me know at the end of the interview that they were interested in hiring me contingent on my background check and drug test.
