Cashier (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 19, 2017
Working at a grocery store is quite complicated. It takes a lot of patience to deal with the various amount of customer attitudes that are received. It's a good job for someone who is in high school or someone who is retired and looking for a little extra money or something to do with their extra time... but not a career.
Center Store Area Manager (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 13, 2017
good place to start but not good for long term career, company doesn't care about it's employees or customers only their bottom line profits.management has poor customer relations and they expect too much out of one employee, everyone is stretched too thin
Service Lead FT (Former Employee) – Brooksville, FL – October 12, 2017
I enjoyed working in customer service. I enjoy working with my peers and helping my customers. I learned how to work with different cultural individuals with different mind sets. My past job had a diverse work culture and I learned from everyone I've worked with in the past. The hardest part of the job is remembering to be empathetic and not sympathetic to everyones needs. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing my customer leave happy.
Deli Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 11, 2017
It's an ok company to work, but they are slowly closing stores and rearranging stores to compete with other retailers. Customer service is always good though bc the company wants the best customer experience a customer can get. Most departments are lack of employees bc of the kind of people they hire and retail is a revolving door for a lot of employees.
Bakery Staff (Former Employee) – Northport, AL – October 11, 2017
At my store in Northport at least, the management team were the best that I have seen in any previous work place. The management team and the people in the department I worked in, really cared about anyone who was brought on. I felt more like family than an employee.
A typical day can range from slow and steady to fast paced. There are a set of things to do in your department along with helping customers and sometimes that can get hectic if the store gets really busy. But even on the busiest day, it is not more than one person to handle. I enjoyed the challenge and learned a lot about customer service.
Started during my high school years. kept working full time and was promoted to stock clerk then to meat dept and started my training for manager trainee. I was drafted and return after 2 years to the same store and position. Made assistant manager but then decided to go to the University of Florida to get my teaching degree
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Cocoa, FL – October 10, 2017
Usually my day was on a pretty tight schedule because I mainly worked nights which meant the deli had to be cleaned, prepped, and restocked for the next day. I learned how to be time efficient when having to stick to a schedule an have everything done within the time of your shift. The management at Winn-Dixie was overall very good but our deli manager specifically was very unorganized and hard to follow. I'd have to say the hardest part of my job was working with some of the other employees who didn't like to actually do there jobs, so then ultimately that would put me behind schedule of getting the deli shut down and ready for the next day. I loved this job, working with the customers was definitely the best part. We had a couple of regulars that would come in every couple days that would just make your day by having small talk with them while you were handling their orders. I.E. slicing meat and cheese or getting fried chicken or our pre-made salads packaged up, weighed, and priced for them.,
Getting the free extra chicken at the end of the day.
Working with other employees who didn't do their jobs.
