    Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee)
    Simpsonville, SC

    Proswell i like the customer service and more busy

    Consthe new rules and new hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementCarry a schedule and record all your thoughts, conversations and activities for a week. This will help you understand how much you can get done during the course of a day and where your precious moments are going. You'll see how much time is actually spent producing results and how much time is wasted on unproductive

    Good company to work for

    Deli Associate (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsTuition Reimbursement, flexible schedule, paid vacation for part times, discount in groceries, promote within the company. Great for students or those who need additional cash

    ConsVERY LOW hourly rate, the demand of work is not fair compare to the hourly pay, Management (store manager) is DETACHED from employees and not friendly

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to EVALUATE the job description for the employees, management expect employees to do everything for the little pay the company give. There is DISORGANIZATION when it comes to duties of the employees. Management doesn't not consider if employees have a college degree in order to promote them. Promotions are given to tenure rather than knowledge and college degree (ridiculous)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Disorganized from Top to Bottom

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of opportunities to move up if you're a capable individual. 10% Discount, weekly pay, generally good atmosphere.

    ConsCorporate is disorganized which filters down to store level. Most management doesn't train properly (there are a few good ones). Total lack of communication in store.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet organized and train employees.

    Growth at the expense of people.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    A nice starting job

    Customer Service Lead (Current Employee)
    Seminole, FL

    ProsNo skills required to apply. Most of the customers and coworkers are very friendly, which will depend on which WD you work at.

    ConsHiring new people to fill positions and hours that they don't have since they're constantly cutting hours to a ludicrous degree.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly think store-level management has their hands tied. If they don't please their own boss, they get almost forced out of the company.

    I've been with the company for over 7 years, I'm an hourly manager, overworked and grossly under paid.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsSomewhat flexible hours, easy to move up if you have good work ethic, paid vacation and sick.

    ConsSince bi-lo bought the company, hours have been cut drastically, and expectations heightened, the pay isn't worth the abuse.
