Current Employee - Store Manager

I have been working at Food Lion full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible schedules to balance school and work commitments
Great leaders inside of retail operations for those who are open minded and willing to take feedback

Cons

Very little room for growth beyond retail positions.
Salaries could be more competitive at all levels
Work/ Life balance can be very difficult at times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revisit the company's new corporate structure. Review the incentives that have been taken away in recent years. Many associate's viewed these as the reason to continue employment. Sometimes performing above the industry standard will assist with attracting "high-level" talent

    I worked at Food Lion part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Paid every two weeks, Opening and closing the store is fun.

    Cons

    Customers treat you like crap and it's your word against theirs. Absolutely nothing you can do about it. I also had an awful boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like we are so dispensable!

    I worked at Food Lion part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The job wasn't hard to do.

    Cons

    Where to start....
    The pay was horrible, the hours were a joke (barely covered gas and childcare and lived only a mile away), The way they did the secdual was a nightmare. They insisted you have your availability in at 9 am on Tuesday nothing after would be accepted but then they refused to give you your hours until that Thursday. They only give you at best 15 hours a week then expect you to put them first when you get a second job just to cover gas. They would have 4 people working during the slowest part of the day and expect you to simply stand at the end of you line then only 2 people working when the store is slammed and get all upset when your taking too long to check people out. They forget to give you your breaks so you have to ask for them and then you might not get to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employee's like valuable people, not cattle. Give them a livable wage or accept that they have to get a second job.
