    Strong starting pay. Advancement opportunities. Rapidly growing and expanding company. Amazing cafeteria with a ton of fresh and healthy options. Management checks in on you multiple times daily to make sure you are comfortable and getting the help you need.

    Cons

    Not much insight into benefits as a new hire. On-the-job training. No classroom style formal training. Management is short handed.

    Advice to Management

    Formal classroom training.

    I have been working at Food Lion part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment
    Very welcoming to availability when college students are home for breaks, but work faithfully at the one in your college location (to keep up with CBTs, hours, etc.)

    Cons

    Managers can work with students but it may be difficult to move up in the company unless you have OPEN availability

    Advice to Management

    Offer college students internship opportunities or more benefits. They'll be great and very willing to move up in the company.

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

    Pros

    They have decent pay and pretty good benefits. You don't have to be at work right on time and have some leniency in day to day objectives. Great place to work.

    Cons

    As I said the pay is pretty good and the benefits as well but you have to work you're butt off (that is what's expected right?).

    Advice to Management

    All about who you know and it seems like there is little to no place to move up because there is a bottle neck at the top.
