Pros

Pay, schedule, opportunities, great people, great company

Cons

Health insurance is expensive. Labor hours are very tight in some departments. Training is based off the store your at, depends on the store manager.

Advice to Management

Add CAO managers to every store or take grocery manager off the trucks. Really dive deep into earned labor hours for grocery, FF&D, market, produce, and cut fruit.

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Food Lion (Greenwood, SC) in May 2021

    Interview

    I attended a hiring career event during the pandemic. I met with the store manager from one of the stores. I recently attended an interview a month before for a new store opening, so the store manger I interviewed remembered me. He already knew what position I was looking for and my background work history. He did ask for my availability, how I would handle working with others, and why do I want to work for the company. He told me all the stores in the area are hiring and I will be sent to the one who needs the most help. I received a call from Food lion three days later to come in to start orientation and to bring my ID with my social security card. I was at orientation the next week for around 40-45 minutes. I was introduced to the company policies, dress code, attendance, and etc. I came back to the store later in the week to complete computer training videos and I started working the day after the training. I also received my name tag and employee ID number.
