    Pros

    Food Lion can be pretty flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    Because of the structure of the hierarchy within the store, blame for different situations often trickles down from corporate, to store manager, to dept manager, etc. People who often complain about the situation being unfair and who threaten to call hr are usually the ones who see the best perks. Labor is expected to be more efficient than the pay often justifies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more control to the people who monitor the individual depts. The people who are around the items everyday have a good sense of what is going on with the products and the customers and can micro-manage past rigid corporate standards.

  2.  

    Food Lion feels Manager/Employee friendship and understanding must be met by forceful transfer to other stores.

    I have been working at Food Lion part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally speaking, an employee has the flexibility to plan for specific days off, baring holidays where everyone is expected to work. At the very least, this shortens shifts and makes for a minimal work day for those who want off on days such as these.

    Cons

    Some managers care about there employees and understand that there is always room for improvement. If you are lucky enough to work for one of these managers, savor the moment, because they will be transferred out within months and replaced with some of the worst management you have ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are far more benefits than drawbacks to a manager who works with their employees. Eric Nahra was one of the best managers I have ever worked for in all of my work experience.
