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

Pros

Food Lion can give a young person that is going through school a good amount of responsibility. I gained a lot of valuable customer service experience, which I believe everyone in the business world should have. Food Lion has a good grasp on the grocery industry and is a very stable company being parented by Delhaize Corporation.

Cons

At times management can expect too much from an individual making only 8-9 dollars an hour. You may be scheduled five hours and in order to get everything done you may not take a break. Hours are not given often for running "backstock," which makes it hard to stay organized. This makes things much harder when it comes time for inventory. Management at times does not hold every employee accountable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe the management should have definitive ways they handle individuals who don't show up to work. I believe if the workplace was a bit more strict a considerable amount of work that is not getting done could be completed.

    Pros

    Any retail management position should teach the basics on how to run a business. I feel the company has taught me many skills that can be used in any retail company. The pay and benefits can be good for management and full time associates.

    Cons

    They don't pay enough for entry level positions. I feel if you can pay a little more, you may get more quality people.
