I have been working at Winn-Dixie full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

decent pay,good equipment,most of your co workers are decent,pretty easy job not much lifting of boxes

Cons

there are way to many chiefs,to much favortisim,they make you feel like your walking on eggshells by always saying you can get fired for this or that the ways they do the scheduling is horrable,

Advice to Management

ease up on the favortisim,quit saying you want the best people you can find and then try to find any little thing to let someone go.

    I have been working at Winn-Dixie full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Descent rate of pay and raises.

    Cons

    Terrible handling of employee safety and welfare, cutting hours constantly and doing away with full time skilled labor in favor of unskilled untrained part timers which impact the cleanliness of their stores, products, and freshness of perishable products. Store managers/ Directors will find fault with long term full timers to keep them on the edge of termination, and they have used many times medical conditions as a basis to terminate employees which is legal in Florida due to the poor lax in employment laws. The merge with Buy-Lo has made conditions worse as Store Managers/Directors receive bonuses for slashing hours, which they do with devastating effects on the stores reputation as it causes dissatisfaction with customers who see poorly handled perishable products, long lines at cash registers, and declining employee morale.Refusal to allow employees to take breaks or lunches on shifts from 5-8 hours which is also legal in Florida and causes drop in morale.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with bonuses directed at CEOs downwards and concentrate on actually running this as a business which remains competitive with surrounding businesses. Raising prices in a 3rd rate store is a recipe for failure and Winn Dixie is close to facing yet another bankruptcy due to their policies and constant slashing of hours.
