Winn-Dixie Stores Informative - Why Did The Davis Boys Have To Die?
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I worked many (26) years with Winn Dixie. As a young man of 16 this was my first real job. I worked for some good people in Ga. who cared about me and the other employees, but for management that cared about the customer. This was what I learned was standard procedure for the Davis family, who started Winn Dixie. I learned that policy was, Winn Dixie hired from within. As time and years went on the Davis brothers died. So did customer service and employee appreciation. I had bought stock, gone to college on a w/d scholarship and become a store manager. The management that filled the gap were self centered, un appreciative and had no desire to serve our customers, the people that paid us. Winn DIxie should close or at least change the name.
I miss the Davis family, and shame on those management people that lost the vision.
