    Pros

    The job was easy. You meet some good people that seem to want to make something of themselves. Customers care.

    Cons

    Management sucks. They promote based on prior relationship instead of the best fit for the open position. The hours suck. The pay sucks

    Advice to Management

    Get on the ball!!!!!!! You let people who are great employees run through your hands.

    Pros

    They believe in the associates and treat them well. They hold strict to their standard practices. The pay rate is good.

    Cons

    A lot of responsibilities for managers. Have too many specialists, merchandisers. Overall, top heavy. You feel micro-managed.

    I have been working at Food Lion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good for the job duties. Job duties are very clearly stated in the "Standard Practice" guides and hard work is usually noticed depending on what style of management you have...as with every other employer.

    Cons

    Upper management does not seem to value the input of the everyday worker...the one's on the "battle field" as to speak. Each store is suppose to be unique to its community (while staying the same as other stores in the region) so I think that each employee can have some valid say on what does and what does not work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your ground level employees and work with them to implement store specific tools to excel their growth...sales and community satisfaction. Things that look good on paper may not work in reality.

    Pros

    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.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. Great for college students. Articulate staff. Willing to train & develop. Love the community support and volunteer efforts.

    Cons

    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.
