    I worked at BI-LO part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They do offer benefits for full time employees (stockers and deli workers)

    Cons

    Poor management. When you request for days off it’s treated as a huge problem. Lowest paying job in Transylvania county.

    Advice to Management

    Raise your hourly pay.

    I worked at BI-LO part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As the only florist at that store's location, I enjoyed alot of autonomy. Management respected and deferred to my decisions on pricing, marketing strategies, and stock, but I had professional floral design certifications (basic and advanced in the current industry trends), and a bachelor's degree. So I might have been given more control over the floral department than someone who is just starting out in life, or is a...

    Cons

    Very fast-paced to where breaks are, "take them if you ever can find the time". Hard on your feet because you are not permitted to sit down unless you walk to the back and clock out on a 15 minute break away from the floral department - your 15 minute absence will leave the floral department unattended, and a seeming beacon to all customers who suddenly want assistance with floral products. It is common to be on your...

    Advice to Management

    I thought management was very good at the store in which I worked. The only thing I can think of improving is unfortunately now standard practice in all grocery stores, but it can be quite brutal - if workers are standing in one place at the floral design counter, cash register, or other areas of limited movement, please consider the old practice of allowing the worker the option to sit upon a tall stool, if needed....
