    I worked at Delhaize full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are a few benefits that they have not cut yet.

    Cons

    Out of all the stores and Distribution Centers, I don't know of any long term employee who made it to retirement.
    They continue to cut everything from quality products to pay and jobs while continuing to raise prices and increasing executive bonus.
    The communication from Corporate is inconsistent and middle management is stepping on each other trying to stay out of the "target on your back zone."
    The knowledgeable and competent Managers have all left and the replacements don't know what they are doing and won't listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ( for the sake of the companies future) take a long hard look at your corporate management team. Measure where we were to where we are now. You can improve process and the bottom line without cutting pay and pushing knowledgeable people out.

    I have been working at Delhaize full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have nothing to add

    Cons

    bureaucracy
    lack of meritocracy
    lack of managers with skills and knowledge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont spend the money on managers that have no idea of the job. Its unfair for those who really have the knowledge and work hard and also risky for the company to keep such people in managerial positions.
    There is something strange with this company and the big boss should investigate it !!!

    I have been working at Delhaize

    Pros

    My experience has been very positive. I have had great opportunities. My management team respects my work, and I have the freedom to challenge ideas. I recognize that this is partially due to having a good management team. I do find that people who work for people from larger companies (ie not homegrown small town city) tend to have a better work experience.

    Cons

    Small town attitudes still prevail. Benefits aren't that great - but depending on your area, compensation is fair and just. No tuition reimbursement, and management does not accept the telecommute policy put in place by HR.
