Winn-Dixie hiring at Tampa Bay area stores

Soon after acquiring Sweetbay supermarkets and converting them into Winn-Dixie stores, the grocer has announced it is hiring people to work at its Tampa Bay area stores.

Winn-Dixie is seeking to fill full- and part-time positions in all areas of the stores, including cashiers, baggers and workers for the deli, bakery, grocery, dairy, meat and seafood departments.

The move comes after Winn-Dixie's parent company, Bi-Lo Holdings, bought 165 Sweetbay, Harveys and Reid's grocery stores from their Delhaize America parent. Winn-Dixie started closing the Sweetbay stores March 29 and will complete the conversion of all the stores on Friday.

Winn-Dixie retained all of Sweetbay employees but determined it needed additional people once the stores reopened to large crowds, said Winn-Dixie regional vice president Joey Medina.

Job seekers can apply at any Winn-Dixie location or online at www.winn-dixie.com/careers. Among the traditional benefits, employees also receive 10 percent off an entire grocery purchase once a week.
