Meat Cutter Reviews

What is it like working as a Meat Cutter at Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.?
Meat Cutter in Venice:
"Stalled."
Pros: I have not seen any true benefits yet, even as a full-time employee my hours are being cut.
Cons: Low pay for experience and work performed. Little room for advancement. All merchandising desks ions are top-down with no regard for location specific demographics. I do not see this entity becoming a valid competitor in my region.
