    I worked at Food Lion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good for full time employees. Can't beat the number of weeks you can get for vacation. The bonus for store managers is quite good if the district hits its numbers. Customers tend to be loyal and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Politics play a large role in management. It's hard to find good part-time workers because of the low pay they receive. Overall, the pay for all store employees is on the lower end for this industry.

    Pros

    Opportunities for a credit union, discounts through certain companies, great work environment most of the time. Minimum work, and fast paced.

    Cons

    First of the month and holidays are a bit of a rough spot that will make you want to pull your hair up, gotta know someone to get a promotion, training is simple, PT receives no benefits.

    It's a good first job; however it's not somewhere you want to stay at because you can't pay the bills with it.

    Pros

    Time Flexibility. You get to learn at your own pace and management is very understanding.

    Cons

    Not many hours for anybody as there are too many people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring so many people, work with the people you already have and train them to do their job better, it more efficient and everyone would be happier.
