No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Winn-Dixie full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The work was consistent but something different everday, I enjoyed working with my associates and our customers and taking care of their needs

Cons

The hours were long. Direction coming from upper management was inconsistent and not store specific. Local management did not have the flexibility to deal with problems at a local level. Too much of a "cookie cutter" approach.

Advice to Management

Give flexibility to your management staff to take care of customer needs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Winn-Dixie full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy to learn job positions. Decent management (depending on location). Flexible shifts.

    Cons

    Not enough hours to run departments now. Low pay. Limited benefits, if any. Increasingly low morale in stores. Absolutely no feedback or concern coming from the new CEO and Bi~Lo.

    Advice to Management

    Winn-Dixie is a totally different company than Bi~Lo. Our way is much more customer-friendly. The new CEO should learn about the company he bought out before making such broad-sweeping changes.

    I have been working at Winn-Dixie part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. I get to cook and learn some new recipes. In the summer they hire people from different countries. I think it's pretty cool cause you can learn about these people cultures and might pick up another language.

    Cons

    The management complains about overtime all the time. You work kinda late (11pm). It's really repetive. They expect you to do six things a once. Not enough help at night.
