    The best thing was the paid training.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(32 comments)

    You won't necessarily get the time off you request for vacation or they will call you and expect you to come to work while you're on vacation. Having paid time off is good but when you are really sick, they hassle you if you miss work even with a dr. excuse.

  • Family Medical Leave(24 comments)

    They were understanding to those who needed to leave but would still want u to come in sometimes

Food Lion offers one of the widest selection of benefits that I've ever seen. The 401K has a generous match. Their tuition reimbursement program is available to both full time and part time associates after only 6 months of employment. They also offer various health plans depending on your needs. I've taken advantage of the legal assistance myself which has saved me hundreds this year alone. One thing offered but not given as an option to select is Food Lion offers pet insurance.

Health insurance is expensive with a high deductible and doesn't really pay anything until you have paid your deductible. Must pay 100% of doctor office calls, etc. until deductible is met. Prescription insurance is pretty good. After a year you get 40hr.s paid vacation as long as you have worked a certain number of hours. Holiday and sick time is given but doesn't compare to having to work every holiday except Christmas day.

Current Customer Service Associate in Goldsboro, NC, North Carolina

No benefits for part time employees. I had dental and vision until 2021... had to be out of work for medical issues...did not average working 30 hours in 2021, so my dental and vision was cancelled as of 12/31/2021. I was a full time dedicated employee for several years . I worked my way up from cashier 2001 to ACSM 2003, CSM in 2007 until 2014 when I stepped down to office assistant and was told they had no full time positions available. My pay which i had earned over those years was cut down to $10.00 almost n half and still have not made but $1.83 more per hour since 2014, my vacation time I had earned was cut down to 56 hours year. I think benefits should be better for employees who stick with the company this long.
