Pros

Great food selection and a great staff to work with. The Food Lion banner isnt well known in PA. Beautiful store to work and shop in!

Cons

Because the company is a southern based company, many products are meant for a different menu for shoppers to chose from. The northern expansion has caused them to close 129 sores including the one I was hired for in September 2011!

Advice to Management

Open up to store management about how to grow the brand in future expansions. They did not market the store very well to attract and KEEP customers!

    Pros

    People are wonderful - feels like a family. Companies recruit you bc they know food lion corp employees work hard. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Very few upper level jobs available. No room for career advancement. The company puts zero focus on growing their employees and training. You will do the job of at least two to three people.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees and compensate them fairly and we will all work a little harder.

    Pros

    As a cashier you get to know the weekly sales and good deals on food. The job was relatively flexible and extra hours were often available.

    Cons

    The management was poor and employees were not recognized for their hard work. Customers were often unpleasant, and the overall atmosphere was not good. There's a high turnover rate, so new employees needed to be trained every few months.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and recognize them when they do a good job or are trying their best. Focus more on your employees and there's likely to be less turn over rates and happier customers.
