    I worked at Food Lion (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can get your groceries after work. And know about sales .
    Really no Pros At all.

    Cons

    They didn't let me and others know how much I would be making when I was hired. When I was trying to ask the subject was moved into another direction. They don't send you copies of your paycheck. You have to go to the company's website to print it out . Site never worked for me on my computer. So I always had to print it up at work. To me that is shady..

    Advice to Management

    You should also keep training and retraining Management in all dept. as well as night crew.. to be up to date on the rules and to back up their Cashiers who do follow the rules. That was one of the reasons why I left .

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

    Pros

    Sometimes I would go take a dump just to get away from this terrible company and their asinine policies. What a horrible place to work.

    Cons

    Literally everything. The management nit picked everything to death. And it's not like it was a busy store. So wondering why no one shops this god forsaken place instead of why is this pickle jars label not facing out would be a good start.

    Advice to Management

    Stop watching MMA videos on your phone in the office and do your job.

    Pros

    Great customers great co-workers accessible

    Cons

    Shady csm borderline discriminatory behavior

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to do promotions and promise to reward an associate, stick to your word. If an associate calls and informs management about a situation that was/is beyond his/control, you cannot hold them responsible. When you are going to terminate their employment, don't fire them via text message.

    I have been working at Food Lion full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of my regular customers.

    Cons

    No natter how hard you work you never get noticed or appreciated. You get wrote up for things that happen when your off, and done by other employees. Also unless you suck up and brown nose you will never moved up or advance.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your hard working employees not the ones who have their head stuck up your butt.

    Pros

    Great customers and enjoyable coworkers

    Cons

    Frequently asked to skip breaks so managers can go on breaks, forced to work tripple shifts in exchange for needing specific day off, if you are hurt on the job expect to be lied to every step of the way, make sure you actually see them submit paper work or they never will, and expect them to suggest you just quit, before they fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the heart of your stores, don't treat them like the enemy
