    I have been working at Winn-Dixie

    Pros

    At my time of employment which has been a while it was a wonderful place to work good co workers and awesome atmosphere but not every store is this way I did move stores once because my first one was not this way

    I have been working at Winn-Dixie full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is a great place to work at. Everyone is very friendly, offer assistance when needed. Great company perks also. We get free food tastings, flu shots, great incentives. If anyone is unhappy here, it is at their own doing. There should be no reason to be miserable here, it is wonderful!

    Cons

    Everywhere I have worked in the past we got off for the day after Thanksgiving which was great. But being in the retail industry I understand why we have to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we cannot have off the day after Thanksgiving, how about offering off for a full-time associate's birthday.

    I have been working at Winn-Dixie full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    With Winn-Dixie there is always room to move up within the company. They give you all the tools and resources to understand your job duties completely and perform them with confidence. They also make the community each store operates in a priority and I love that.

    Cons

    Only con I can think of would be the limited hours for part-timers which is in no fault of Winn-Dixie, but just a rule we must comply with. This would be a con with any company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always remember communication is key. Your team can only do as much as you allow and teach them to do. Share what you know and watch them grow =].
