I worked at Food Lion as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Once hired, you will probably have a job somewhere. The corporate culture is slow and steady. Once on the inside, that might be good.

Cons

Cronyism seems to be the most powerful influence on the hiring process. This company looks inward, and not necessarily at merit.

Advice to Management

Retool and refresh this organization. Tradition is nice, but is likely to kill a company when faced with fleet footed competition in the marketplace.

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

    Pros

    competitive pay, conveniently located in many cities in many states stretched along the east coast line.

    Cons

    upper management using discipline incorrectly to avoid paying out bonus or severance package due to closing of stores. Long hours and many nights, weekends and holidays although that is what this kind of job requires. Stores are old and dirty and can not compete with newer stores. They claim to have the lowest prices but this could not be any further from the truth.

    Advice to Management

    certain individuals have unlimited power and human resources should not work for those individuals. Such a turn over rate of human resource people allows the district and regional management keep power over them hindering their decisions upon crucial situations.
