    I have been working at Delhaize full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a great place not anymore . Hannaford clowns spent all of Food Lions profits Now the New CEO is cutting everywhere to make up for it Cut all the salary clowns leaving early everyday taking 10 weeks of vacation and 25 sick days

    Cons

    They just cut all veteran ( Hourly) employees pay by 8 % Because Sunday is considered a regular day no premium pay . I wonder how many corporate employees are working on Sundays ????? All of the stores are open on Sundays 4000 employees effected buy cuts

    Advice to Management

    Get some Management !!!!!!!!!! I may work at this Circus but I am not one of the Clowns

    I worked at Delhaize full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Little to no knowledge is needed to acquire and maintain a 6 figure income. Delhaize America has taken a proactive approach to enforcing the "The higher you go, the less you know" philosophy.

    Cons

    There are no Pros as an entry level employee. There is little to no training and the willingness of management to assist is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    You seem to do your best to choke the company. Think about the way you treat your employees before you go to bed at night. If you wake up well rested and refreshed, you may need to re-evaluate your life.

    Pros

    Some nice people at corporate that balance out the totally miserable souls. The stores try really hard to do a good job. They have a thankless job!

    Cons

    The culture needs a lot of work. Company doesn't live the principles they write on their brocures and wall. Inbreeding and nepotism runs rampant! Smart people get squelched!

    Advice to Management

    Work on the culture and listen to the customers not the bean counters!

    I have been working at Delhaize full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They had some good benefits but they are all gone now.

    Cons

    There is no balance (work and home life). They have cut so many hours to save payroll, you need to be available any hours just to make a pay check that you can live on, If you have a thought on improving a process or service, keep it to yourself. They don't care and won't act on it. Which is sort of funny because the only thing they seem to care about is the dollar. They seem to be targeting all of the long term associates and pushing them out to save payroll. It looks to me like they are on a path to contract out the distribution services.

    Advice to Management

    I would share my thoughts and the ideas from others who are in the same situation but you will not listen any way so why bother.

    I worked at Delhaize full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of people trying to do go good work. Hannaford folks are incredibly smart.

    Cons

    Support groups like HR and IT are horrible. They have unfair practices. All depends on who likes you and who doesn't. During interview I was asked all types of illegal questions. Should have prepared me for how the whole corporate culture behaves.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate HR and IT practices!

    Pros

    Was willing to hire me when I could not find a job, working with co-workers has been great.

    Cons

    pay salary & raises could be improved, not much room for advancement, does not boost employers morale when pulling long hrs.

    Advice to Management

    Could have employee recognition month, giving incentives to improve & interact with customers.
