    I worked at BI-LO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great People, fair salary & Delightful Customers. The environment on sales floor was always a positive experience.

    Cons

    Shaky financial future
    Management seems like they care but have no direction from area supervision or any field staff
    Previous benefits are being eroded

    Advice to Management

    There’s not much to advise. Pure hubris has led them down this path....sadly it’s straight to a cliff.

    I submitted a professional 2 week notice and the company asked me to leave immediately. I said I’d stay to help transition someone else etc. They wanted me gone. Furthermore I am told I am not being paid out for my remaining 18 paid days off I earned. I was told it’s policy. Never heard THAT one before. It’s just shameful.
