    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Food Lion (Harrisonburg, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Relaxed, standard questions. Really liked it when I provided specific examples to support my answers to each question. Smile and dress nice- they like overdressed people. Got offered the job a couple days later. Turnover rate is big so if you don't blow the interview you'll get the job.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Food Lion (Newton, NC).

    Interview

    First time I applied they tried to offer me another position for a lower pay and I declined they swore I wasn't going to get the compensation I was asking for from the beginning a week later I did. I reapplied for the CSM job a year later and met with the Store Manager and then district a week later for a follow-up interview. This time they wanted to give me assistant store manager promised to call and then never called. I know they do not invest in their team members and like to have outside talent that has been trained already. Nevertheless they are far too unorganized for my me.
