The Food Lion Experience

Store Manager (Current Employee)

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

ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementRevisit 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
