    This was a great company to work for until the merge with Bi-Lo.

    Management (Former Employee) Anniston, AL

    ProsI absolutely love my coworkers! Working with customers, and establishing close relationships with them was very rewarding. This is a great job to have while attending school!

    ConsThere is very little opportunity for advancement now. Several positions have been eliminated, and there are not enough hours for any employee to complete the tasks that are expected of them. You rarely get raises, or get any type of positive feedback. They have even changed the employee discount to almost nothing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement continue to do the best you can with what little hours you have to complete everything. I don't feel like the cons for working for Winn-Dixie are because of management, but the folks at the top.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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)

    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

    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.
