    I worked at Delhaize (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hired on as an Assistant Customer Service Manager. Had some prior experience supervising in Grocery retail. Store Manager gave me a chance and worked with me even after his prior Customer Service Manager quit on him.

    Cons

    Little time to get used to new systems, new rules and policies and you are expected to excel right out of the gate. Some guidance given but if you don't excel fast enough at a higher level of management ESPECIALLY if you are are hired from outside the company expect to be let go in your first 90 days.

    Advice to Management

    Store level management was great. Always there to help. District management, however, is another matter entirely. District Managers need to realize that hires from outside Delhaize will take a little longer to settle into their roles. If your Store Manager and other management tell you they are working with their hire then believe them and DON'T override their decision ESPECIALLY when they have made a procedural error that will correct itself.
