Perfect job for those in high school
Front End Floor Manager (Former Employee) – Pace, FL – July 2, 2016
As an adult, I would say it's not the job for me anymore. There was a point however, that this job was a perfect fit for me. The schedule is completely flexible which is perfect for those still in school. The pay always hovers around minimum wage, with very small pay bumps every year you work there (10-20cents/hr). That doesn't really make a difference though when you've worked there for four years and then realize that those people getting hired right now are making the exact same pay. On a good note, it is pretty easy to advance in the workplace there. Any given person can work in almost any area of the store. The last thing I will say is that Winn-Dixie used to care a lot more about their employees than they do now. This became very evident when they cut part time hours to no more than 25 per week because they knew that if someone worked more than 30, they would have to give them benefits. It's when I went from 39 hours a week down to 25, that I had to either find a better paying job, or work two jobs to make up for the wages they took away from me. This is just your every-day minimum wage job with a high turnover rate.
low pay, bad benefits
