Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Washington State – October 15, 2018
Good management, decent hours that change weekly, good benefits, crazy face paced hard working environment. I really enjoy the company of my co-workers, the job itself is my least favorite it really hard dirty work.
no fixed schedule, hard physical labor and it's a messy job
Is a very busy, fast paced position making my shift pass quickly.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 12, 2018
As a cashier I am constantly busy with checking out customers groceries, which I enjoy as the time goes very quickly. I work part-time in the evenings, 4 hours a shift. This type of shift works perfect for me.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – October 12, 2018
I was going to college while working here so it was a good fit for my schedule at the time. Co-workers were great, it's fast paced for the majority of the time so your shift goes by fast and managers were good about getting you onto your breaks or out of the check stand to go home on time. Cons for me were they would try to call me in on days they knew I couldn't work because of school and they had attitude towards me for declining the shift, they constantly said my customer service needed to be better but most of the customers for that area did not speak English and as part time they don't offer any benefits.

Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – October 10, 2018
What I learned is from doing carts, cashier, floor, and maintenance work keep me busy and learning new things. A hard working place and management willing to teach you when something new you have to learn.
Pricing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 9, 2018
Very much enjoyed my job unfortunately had to quit and relocate. Trying to return to the company. They have great affordable benefits. I love the relationships you build with your fellow associates and customers.
If you have prior grocery experience I would advise avoiding this place entirely
Associate (Current Employee) – Washington State – October 9, 2018
Everyone starts off at the same pay regardless of previous experience in grocery or a specific department, which is basically minimum wage. There aren't any full-time positions in the store besides managers but they will have you work 40 hours for weeks consistently while still being called part-time and drop your hours in the blink of a eye without much warning (down to 24 hours easily or worse for other departments). Work raises are absolutely pathetic, you can expect to rack up about .10 per hour raise every year if you're lucky and it caps out for part-timers (all non-managers) after about 6-7 years with nothing else to offer unless you go after a management position. As for management positions there is basically no incentive for people to move up before the 6 or 7 years because you just get that .10 raise until your training is up and the company decide to ship you off to some other state to prove that you're loyal to the company. This company also has the most strict rules I've ever seen, its extremely ridiculous. It's only a 2 minute grace period to clock in, clock out and for lunch breaks even if it's 3 seconds over that grace period expect to have a talk from a manager and to start racking up points which can easily add up and get you fired very quickly. If you're young and don't have any work experience or going through college this might not be a bad gig for you, but for people looking to make a livable wage you would probably have better luck working at a Wal-Mart, which basically all this place is...a glorified Wal-mart that doesn't even treat their employees asmore... well.less
Before the interview I thought the workplace would be a little unorganized and everyone would be doing their own thing. After having the interview and working for a while I got to know some people and little better, had a better understanding of the work place and my previous thoughts have now been turned completely around.
Order Selector/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Woodburn, OR – October 2, 2018
Fast paced work environment where orders picked are timed, co-workers and management for the most part are friendly and helpful. Work/Life balance can be difficult due to mandatory overtime. Seniority based workplace with the workplace culture that would be expected with it.
Paid Lunch, Plenty of overtime available
Only 20 minutes for lunch, overtime can be mandatory at times
Cashier (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – September 25, 2018
Fast hands are needed for this job. lots of customers and a full day's work is ahead of you as a WinCo cashier. The benefits are great because WinCo is employee owned and after a while, each employee gets some type of a share in stocks.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Moscow, ID – September 23, 2018
Everyone was supported and kind. it felt like a family working at Winco and everyone help each other. the only hard part i'd say when it's a slow day; you get bored very quickly but once customers are rushing in then it's entertaining.
