It was my first job, and I had fun working there.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Winn-Dixie

ProsFlexible scheduling, nice managers, interesting clients.

ConsSometimes they implemented procedures that felt awkward or unnatural.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to inspire your employees more, especially the lower level employees. They are the ones that interact with the customers, not the managers.

Winn-Dixie offers a challenging work environment with great people, and a has great training program.

Assistant Store Director (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at Winn-Dixie full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFlexible hours, fun work environment, challenging and rewarding daily routine. I love the people I work with and feel a true sense of team.

ConsLimited opportunities to get promoted. I have not received a raise in 5 years because I am topped out, and the lack of growth potential is extremely frustrating.

Always a busy environment.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Winn-Dixie

ProsThe hours are pretty consistent. Time flies because it's always busy. The management is really nice and so are the employees. The job is easy.

ConsAlmost every customer is in a bad mood and always has a complaint on the prices. The new WIC cards make it hard for customers to see what they are allowed to get and so it ends up being a problem and time consuming. The break room does not have a fridge, sink or a good microwave.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome advice would be to put a fridge in the break room and also a sink.

I enjoy knowing I can work nearly any department and exceed expectations.

Pricing Associate (Current Employee)
Deland, FL

I have been working at Winn-Dixie part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe store I work at has a great family friendly environment. I enjoy being cross trained in many departments and knowing I am trusted to do the assigned jobs without constant supervision.

ConsThe biggest challenge of working at Winn Dixie is the limited hours available to each employee

Advice to Senior ManagementI have suggested if they can not use me as a full time employee in one department, perhaps they could have a part-time employee, approximately 30 hours a week, that works different departments as needed.

Too many changes, and no job is guaranteed.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Winn-Dixie full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWorking with customers is great, the schedules are flexible, and is a family environment.

ConsPay is not competitive, hours not guarantee when an hourly employee, and difficult to secure a full-time position.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't hold back team members when they show interest in moving around to different departments just because you don't want to lose and replace them.
