    Meat Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wesley Chapel, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Winn-Dixie (Wesley Chapel, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was done in 3 parts. First you sit down with the store manager and assistant store manager and they ask you questions, usual procedure, then you walk around the store with the assistant where you are introduced to employees, all the while your supposed to smile and greet guests (yes, in your interview clothes). Afterwards you go back, interview some more and then they'll let you know when they plan to make a decision. Honestly, for me, I felt like for the job I was interviewing for they were asking too many questions and wanted too specific of answers. I felt like I was being interrogated for a minimum wage job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Winn-Dixie (Fort Myers, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had the store manager and grocery manager and it was a good constructive interview. I was asked a range of questions from Personality to Punctuality. One thing I didn't like was the fact I thought I was interviewing for a day position only to find out it was overnight.

    Deli Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lady Lake, FL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Winn-Dixie (Lady Lake, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online for all available positions and received a call back for an interview around a week later (honestly might not have been that long). I went in for my interview for Deli Associate and was very excited. I interviewed with the front end manager while waiting for the Deli Manager to become available, and then interviewed with both of them (I was feeling very good about this interview as it seemed to be going very well), then I had to wait for the Store Manager to come up and do his part of the interview. This was all on a Friday so I was sent for my Drug Test on Monday. Now I am just waiting for my background to come back, I do have two misdemeanors on my record and I did explain them to the management during the interviews, as well as explain I have removed myself from the situation that caused them. Recently I called and spoke with the manager to check up on things and she told me they are just waiting for the Background and she isn't sure if my records is holding it up(she said it might have had to go to corporate for approval) or if it's just taking a bit of time to come back... I do know I'm going to love working with this store if my background allows me to as they all seem like really good people, and I've always heard good things about the company in general as an employer.

    The store supervisor mostly asked me questions about my personality and interests. Then to my surprise he had me walk around the store with him to see how well I interact with customers! I was very nervous about doing that, but once I got out on the floor it was easy and fun.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Winn-Dixie.

    Interview

    The interview lasted only about 5 minutes, and they asked typical interview questions. Because it was my first job interview, I felt that some of the questions were difficult, but they could be easy to anyone with experience. I was asked around 5 or so questions, and when it was over, interviewer told me I would get called for a second interview if picked. I was called, but I didn't have a second interview.
