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

    Pros

    Always doing or learning something new. Company made sure to train individuals and have training events for the whole store.

    Cons

    Rude customers, co-workers disillusionment about job, unclear job expectations at times, new employees all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Know how to do every job in the store. Help in every way possible. My store manager could run the front end and learned how to lottery and Western Union to help when needed.


  7. "It's alright"

    I worked at Food Lion part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fortunately, the Food Lion I was working at the time had friendly staff, I felt welcome there. It was an easy process to get hired as well.

    Cons

    I happened to be QA, or the Janitor, so it was gross. Dealing with the public and their literal waste is a judgement the individual has to make the decision: do I want to clean a whole grocery store, and people that poop there for $10 an hour?

    I wised my manager would care about consistency, and not cleaning unnecessary parts of the building for the sake of busy work

    Advice to Management

    Consistency please, but overall I liked my management. Please focus on what's important, and not how clean the back of the vestibule is.
