Shop Floor Not Flat

I didn't notice it much until a few days ago. I was getting the 1 bys and 2bys off the floor by laying several 1x2 stickers down. That's when I noticed some of the stickers were loose which means the lumber was not laying flat on it. I don't expect it to be perfect but hoped for better. I know the lumber itself my not be flat, but a closer look showed some hollows in the floor.
These are concrete/cement floors and so moving a 4 swivel wheel cart will be fun and exciting.
The real question is: Will self leveling feet like this
work on assembly tables or is there something better?
AND........Is there a simple inexpensive way to fill in the small hollows?

There are a wide range of options for leveling feet...depends on how much weight you want to support and how you want to mount the feet.

As for the concrete...are there any cracks which might indicate that the concrete has sunken over time in spots? There are inexpensive fixes depending on what you are filling but they can get a little time consuming and if the concrete is sinking, you should address that before trying to fill the low areas or it may be a wasted effort.
