I would be happy if they hired me back. I left on good terms
Front End Manager / Bulk Foods Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – November 19, 2016
I was hired by Waremart back in 1986. In 1990 they bought into the Cub Foods franchise. I believe they came up with their own name in 1995, its been so long ago. Winco met they had stores in wasington Idaho Nevada, California and Oregon. I quit in 1999. to move out of State. I worked in a few departments, from bulk food Manager to front end manager. They always gave oppurtunitys to advance. They were a great company to work for. Now that they have a Store in the town that I live. I have applied a few times. They wont give my application any consideration which I don't understand. You would think they would want some body that use to work for them that has a lot of experience. I probably wont apply again because its very discouraging to keep getting turned down by a Company that you worked so hard for all those years.

Deli Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 28, 2016
Great company, great benefits, only downfall is low pay and low raises. Hard to keep employees due to low pay and low working hours. There is room for advancement if you are willing to work for low wages until then.
Good job if you're immune to sickness and family emergencies
cart clerk (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – October 26, 2016
I worked at winco for almost two years. Despite showing interest in moving into the store (I was a cart clerk) I never got the opportunities to do so. I'd still be working there today but I was terminated due to taking some days off for family emergencies and sickness. There is no compassion in the management and the point system punishes the people that are down on their luck more than anything else. they also refuse to give you more than 25 hours a week because they dont want to give benefits to you.
employees are great to work with
point system is an enharently broken system and shouldn't be used anymore
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Tigard, OR – October 20, 2016
Mostly great days and good customer,some moody, just keep smiling. Co-workers are great for the most part..To much drama for me..The hard part about winco was the pace you needed to work at non stop all day. Customer can be tough, you just don't take it personally.
Great customers, good pay and benifits
new managment (one year) with no clue on how winco works.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – October 18, 2016
The co workers that I had to work with where very fun and encouraging. They wanted to make sure that I had help anytime that I needed it. Getting to know the customers and the environment was my favorite part of the job.
Clerk (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – October 13, 2016
I enjoy working at Winco foods. The management is friendly and it is really easy to learn new departments. It has taught me to be a diligent worker and to provide quality customer service to all customers. Really fun employees. Only downside is the lack of full time positions.
Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Surprise, AZ – October 10, 2016
Everybody at the company is great and are all willing to hep you understand the company and what they expect of you. This company is a wonderful company I like working here and I would refer it to others also.
Cart Clerk (Current Employee) – Modesto, CA – October 10, 2016
As a cart clerk the job is tough on your feet and back and usually fast paced. The job teaches you how to be alert and aware of your surroundings. The management is strict but fair in most cases. I don't really work with anyone else but I do interact with some of the lead clerks, cashiers, and parking lot security throughout the day. The hardest part of the job is the physical strain but you get used to it. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to ride the carts back to their stalls when it's slow.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonds, WA – September 24, 2016
I loved working at WinCo! Management was easy to talk to, customers were happy, and coworkers were friendly. Cashiering was long, monotonous work, but I enjoyed being able to socialize with the customers.
Grocery clerk (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – September 17, 2016
Winco is a great store to shop and save. Aisles are stocked with great product and those are filled by the one and only workers us! Starting the day i would always have different shift so i would work in different departments. Each department is unique in its own way and i would know what needs to be done and excel in everything i do . Grocery department consisted of stocking from aisle to aisle in a good pace. Bread department consisted of working early a early shift before all the shoppers got their so the bread would be looking all nice and fresh and full for the customers . it would be my job to keep inventory as well and order as needed. Freezer department was stocking the frozen and working fast so you wont get cold! I was Also a Cashier where i would help out when needed as a back up or do that all shift depending what was scheduled. Overall i was always busy and running around.
great benefits, fast pace.
lots to remember, relying on people to get job done was hard
