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

    Pros

    You get paycheck every week and that's about it. And you get to meet some good people... occasionally only though

    Cons

    Too many too count. No labor hours, constant cuts, company not investing in equipment, building and people. There is no training apart from couple of hours spent on computer.

    New CEO came from Australia with no previous knowledge of United States market and made bunch of bad decisions that lead to lower profit margins .
    In order to pay for that they got rid of Pharmacy, one of the Salary Management positions and multiple lead positions in the store.

    Company known for good beef ( Beef People) under new CEO star is selling Australian and Mexican steaks of inferior quality.

    Advice to Management

    Since I am part of store management and as such constantly overworked this can be message only to Board of Directors of Lone Star (WD owner).
    Sell the company as soon as you can because nobody will buy it if you wait any longer and WD will go in Oblivion, same as Sears and Kmart.
