    Low wage compared to other stores, Tense work environment, and short breaks

    Increase salary for Customer Leads and older staff. In my time at Food Lion, one thing I noticed was that new employees tend to get paid more than more experienced workers. Employees also need to be appreciated for their efforts.

    Pros

    Do your job consistently, and you are regarded as a "good" employee-doesn't take much, just respect the position and your customers!

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement from "corporate" and individuals who are missing the point of making customers happy.

    Advice to Management

    Change the paradigm to one of leadership, not managing or "bossing". Take full advantage of the employee that wants to help and learn more.
