    Large company with multiple locations. Co-workers are really friendly, and the pay is decent.

    Cons

    Managers don't train well and get annoyed when you ask for assistance; they expect you to just know everything.

    Give precise and detailed directions, explain things better, and be more professional.

    Traveling distance is a bit far. Another con could possibly be the scheduling, may have to have open availability but I haven't started working yet.

    Pros

    The job task are pretty easy to where anyone can learn to do it. Decent hours if you're in-school. They hire minors. Overtime is usually not available unless its a busy holiday and if you're good.

    Cons

    Only bad thing I see is that a lot of good work goes unnoticed. If you don't continuously push yourself and the product in front of your peers then it's tough to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Paying attention to what the employees are doing behind the scenes.

    I worked at Food Lion part-time

    Pros

    Good starter job if you are a teenager beats your friends working at McDonald's.
    They will work around your school schedule.

    Cons

    Do gross things. Cleaning the bathrooms etc. I remember one time I had to clean out mold...or one time get the carts while it was snowing and most the carts were in the back getting repaired so I spent almost the entire day in the snow.

    Advice to Management

    I had some great bosses. Help out when the lines are backed up with 20 customers.
