Category Team Assistant for Perishable (Former Employee), Mauldin, SCSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: working around a lot of different people
Cons: working around a lot of different people..
I worked for BI-LO for 22.5 years and enjoyed every minute of it. I worked in several departments but stayed in the merchandising area. I worked with knowledgeable associates that taught me a lot about the grocery business as well as life. I would still be with BI-LO if they had not closed the corporate office in Mauldin SC and moved to Jacksonville – more... Fl. – less

Run...no seriosuly....run!!!
department head (Former Employee), Columbus, NCSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: the moment you clock out
Cons: benefits, management is terrible, shady business practices, favouritism
This store's leadership in beyond terrible. Favoritism is wide spread as is fratinization. This company
as a whole is going down the toilet. If you love to stab people in the back and listen to salaried management whine and complain about teammates then this is the job for you! The store manager is condescending and flat out rude. The assistant store – more... manager reminds me of deputy dog. And the front end manager well lets just say shes a ray of sunshine!! They love to set people up for failure and then when they due fail well its their fault. I am a former teammate and if you can find another job I highly suggest doing so! – less

very poor company
bagger, clerk, stockers (Former Employee), gastoniaMarch 30, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: management, pay, hours
this job is ok for teen first job, not a big deal job, feel sorry for ppl that make grocery a career. As i got older found better job and when economic went down i was lucky to get bilo back but it wasnt worth it, been there for 4 years, they over work you, and they dont wanna give you a raise and every year they give you a raise, not even worth it, – more... the highest raise ive gotten was 3 cents after promoted from bagger, clerk, to daytime stocker to 3rd shift stocker, they will BS you, backstab you, check your time because they will change it so they can save money, after you work there a while you kind of get the idea of what everyone makes and its ridiculous, making minium wage maybe plus 50 cent more while others making 13 or 15 dollars an hours. The ppl that makes that much sure love to kiss butt and yet you do all the work. Mangements are very lazy and stupid. i really wouldnt recommend anyone to work at bilo, seriously needs to go out of buisness. i got alot of friends in bilo that would say the same thing and thats in 3 different bilos, but if you are desperate you have been warned. – less

Current employee in Garden City, Ga
department manager (Former Employee), garden city, gaMarch 18, 2014
Cons: too many to list
Ever since Bi-Lo took over Piggly Wiggly it has been a downward spiral. Very poor management. Hardworking, dedicated, honest employees are not rewarded. Price increases and product changes have destroyed our store. There is no concern for customer service or room to adjust your department to increase sales. Management, despite the laws against it, changes – more... hours and shorts employees checks. Upper management does not allow enough hours to properly run the stores daily operations. I would NEVER recomend this company to anyone. In the past month we have had a store manager, 3 department heads,an asst. department manager, 2 customer service managers, one cake decorator, and 2 stock clerks put in there two weeks. – less

Customer Service Clerk/ Cash office assistant (Former Employee), Lincolnton, NCFebruary 28, 2014
Overall I did enjoy my job at BILO. The only thing I did not like about it was when I tried to transfer to another store both stores did not have my information to get my transfer sent. So I was with out work until I decided to go to school after my senior year of high school.

Quality retail job, very good pay for the performance
Market Manager/ Produce Manager (Current Employee), Lexington, SCOctober 30, 2013
Bi-Lo is a quality workplace with fair compensation and benefits. The hours of operation for most grocery stores makes me hesitant to advance any further but for someone with older kids or no kids upper management would be ideal.

Good Company
Produce Manager (Current Employee), Lake Wylie, SCAugust 15, 2013
Pros: alot of good people here.
Cons: not enough labor hours and no disipline.
Bi-LO is a good company. However its policies are not enforced . I believe too much focus is placed on shrink. Where customer service and driving sales are neglected. Expectations are high and labor is very minimal.

Frozen Food & Dairy Manager (Former Employee), Simpsonville, SCJuly 18, 2013
Bi-lo is a good company. Management varies by store. Coworkers were great. Benefits are very good. Once Bi-lo "bought" Winn Dixie the benefits decreased in coverage, and some policies changed.

Productive and equal company
Level 2 Helpdesk Analyst (Former Employee), Mauldin, SCMay 19, 2013
A typical day at work, it is busy. There are several incoming calls but everyone is equally answering their share of calls. I learned how to work with a technical side on bringing up equipment. I learned to determine crisis situations and how they should be handled. The management team is very flexible. They make sure that there were ready bodies to – more... answer the call and if anyone needed a break they will allow it. The hardest part of work is when there are company outages such as network lines being down and we are unable to network into the equipment to assist. The most enjoyable is my co workers and being able to fix the issues. – less

Bank Recon Clerk (Former Employee), Mauldin, SCMay 6, 2013
Pros: ability to move up in company.
Cons: never thought incentive increases were enough
In my time at BI-LO I held many positions and was taught alot along the way. I didn't mind going to work, management was fair and easy to work with. My co-workers were my second family. Though the work was the same, everyday brought something different which was good so you didn't become bored. I enjoyed learning new things and being challenged. Helping – more... customers whether they were in the store or directly on the phone was probably the worst just because I couldn't always satisfy them. – less

A bad company to work for.
Deli Clerk (Current Employee), Mint Hill,NCJuly 27, 2012
Cons: small pay, harldy any benefits, and lack of respect from management.
Bi-Lo is a hard place to work at. The reason why I say it is a hard place to work at is due to the lack of good management.Not to mention the other employees show a lack of respect for new hires.I would not recommend Bi-Lo to anyone else.The reason why I applied for this position was because I needed some sort of income coming in.

An ok place to work for...
Courtesy Clerk, Cashier, Stock Clerk (part time) (Current Employee), Rock Hill, SCJuly 6, 2012
Pros: job security, learining new skills, friendly costomers thanking you
Cons: no raises!!, very short breaks, random eratic schedules, managers always begging you to come into work, work load, rude costomers.
For a courtesy clerk a typical day revolves around bagging orders and retrieving carts from the parking lot. The balance of carts in the lobby and helping customers can get hectic on busy days. There is almost no possible way of helping customers, bagging orders and getting carts all at the same time. Bi-lo as a corporation does not care about the well – more... being of their workers by throwing such a large work load on them. This includes the fact that management is to lazy to call anyone in for help despite the fact that a handful of workers may be only getting a 10 hours a week. The store is also always monitored by corporate jerks who complain about the stupidest stuff not being right. Other duties also include cleaning bathrooms and changing trash cans.

Running a cash register is not a bad job. customers are usually nice but can sometimes be rude. It's fairly easy once you get all the controls and muscle memory of the register. Can get repetitive and confusing though. Can get very hectic on busy days but much easier than bagging. Not much physical labor involved. Responsibility's include greeting and helping customers and ringing up items. Also bagging orders when there is nothing to do.

A typical day as a stock clerk is the most challenging i have found yet. The work load is tremendous and work is hard. Typically you would clock in, and if a truck has come in you either stock the shelf's with the new items or separate them onto pallets for third shift to work through. You also have to maintain all specials and fill as needed. Setting up special displays is also part of the jobs as is unloading trucks. If a truck has not arrived and there are no new goods you work back stock and keep a watch on the shelf's. A typical day is 9hours with a 30min unpaid lunch.

Management at bi-lo is generally friendly but is a hit miss relationship like anything else. They never give you a steady schedule and always call you on your days off. They are nice at work but honestly don't care about you.

The co-workers are either bi-lo gurus or fairly nice people who feel the same as i do about the place i work. Some are offended when you talk about your dissatisfaction at work and others agree. Most of the cashiers are nice but always complain about everything, even though there job is easy.

The hardest part of the job is hanging in there and giving it your best every day. Dealing with customers is also annoying. For a courtesy clerk it is no hours and pushing buggies. For a cashier, standing all day, and when the computer is not working right. For stock clerks, it is the work load, and lifting objects...all the time. Oh BTW no one ever...ever gets a raise.

The most enjoyable part of the job is a happy manager, a happy customer, filled shelf's and clocking out! – less

This store has alot of good people working there. Most have been with the company a long while.
Pricing Integrity Coordinator (Current Employee), Kannapolis, NCMarch 25, 2012
Pros: good vacation packages, paid time off
Cons: each store is not run on an individual basis, but as a cooporate whole.
This is a good company to work for if the grocery business is what you are interested in. The stores are clean and the prices are competitive.
