    Pros

    Short shift hours. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Not enough weekly hours. Annoying management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication with employees is key. Baggers should be helping with bagging, not going to get carts, doing nasty work that you would not do.

    Work life balance ok. Good pay if you have been there many years.

    Cons

    Company is very inconsistent with policies and procedures; They are always change them. Not enough hours to run a department, there always working departments with very little help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to be more consistent on their company poles and procedures. Stop changing them every couple months.

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

    Pros

    Paid weekly and 5% employee discount

    Cons

    So much work for a little money, never told you're doing a good job.. just criticized when you do something along, the upper management is so out of touch and treat you as if you're easily replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more in touch with your employee's. Try to see things from their perspective and actually talk to them.

    Pros

    Co-workers are very nice to work with, from other departments. they take the time to help you because there really is no formal training.

    Cons

    No formal training. they stick you in a position and expect you to preform as if you've done it for years. Some of the managers talk to you very poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a formal training program and learn how to talk to your employees.
