Overall Reviews at WinCo Foods
Nothing but drana
Too much gossip. Exactly like high school. Too many different types of groups. Management does not care. They expect you to work with no guidance. No leadership

i loved working for Winco Foods it was amazing experience, my management at store 116 was Such an amazing team i wish i had stayed but life had other plans for me.
No structure or proper management
Hours are inconsistent, scheduling is a mess. Management and staff don't communicate or properly train you for any jobs or positions. Decent pay depending on your hours and availability, but they will cut corners at every chance. People are overworked and never appreciated. If you absolutely need a job you can apply, they hire just about anyone but have a plan to continue to look for other jobs. Don't get stuck working here, it's not good for your health (mental or physical) or your well being.
Good Work/Not very job safe
It's a fine place to work, decent hours, good customer service. However, it does have a slight power vacuum, employees have to constantly fear for their jobs.

very stressful management became a joke
benefits are great if you can stand all the stress Winco has become to corporate before you were able to communicate with management about personal problems going on and now its all business and management could no longer help used to be very family oriented
great place to work overall. great people to work with.
advancement in the company is easy. co-workers are an amazing group of people. management is easy going as well. benefits are great.
Prosgreat benefits. easy going workplace
Conspay increase's are not that great
A very productive place to work and have fun while you do your jobs
I loved everything about working at Winco and the employees were like family tome. Work was very hard at time because of the all purpose title we all had but we all did our jobs.
Consshort breaks, point system
It has a hard schedule to read and everyone is nice but i would get tired really fast at the end of the time but they teach you to work at a fast an they make working fun

WinCo owns you but there are some good benefits for working there. The pay is pretty good, the benefits are the best there is...anywhere! It is an employee owned company. I used to be an excellent company to work for until a bunch of Albertson's employees took over command and made it a miserable place to work. It seems like all they do is come in the store and tear employees down, degrading morale and undermining a team atmosphere.

20 Plus years with this company set my future up nicely!!!
In the scheme of things yearly salary was not exceptional but could have been had I decided to go into management. I wanted to stay in the area that I worked and that would not have been possible in a management position. Benefits are amazing and I do believe unless things have changed in the last 2 years that employee paid benefits costs have not risen since 1993. I spent 22 years with the company and now will enjoy a mutli million dollar retirement and I am still in my 40s. I think too often that people want a lot of compensation and dont want to do much for it... WinCo has a very high expectation of its employees and someone only looking for a paycheck without having to put in the time or want to work bankers hours will be very disappointed because that will not happen.
The expectation level is VERY high and although store managers make in excess of $150000/yr salary and bonuses company expectation is extremely high! Its managers are expected to work all holidays and 6 days a week every other. There is a lot of stress involved and as a result family life can and does suffer as a result.
Prosamazing benefits and promotional opportunity from within the company.
Conscompany growth is so big so fast that job satisfaction at store level is low, due to failure to communicate a job well done, usually only hear when the job they do is insufficient.
