Winn-Dixie is a supermarket chain that ranks as the nation's 43rd largest retailer. It operates 485 stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. Winn-Dixie was founded in 1925, and went on to become one of the first cash-only grocery stores in the United States. By not offering credit to its customers, as was common in the early 1900s, the store was able to stock a larger selection of goods and pass savings along to its customers. The chain uses a variety of advertising taglines, including "Fresh Checked Every Day," "Getting Better All the Time," and "The Flavor of Your Country."
What to Expect When Interviewing

Those applying for managerial positions may find a more rigorous interview process that may include a panel interview or a skills test. Potential employees can apply online or in person. Applicants who are offered positions may need to complete a drug test and submit to a background check.
