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

    Pros

    Management helpful about trying to work with requested time off. Most of co workers friendly and willing to help you learn.

    Cons

    Very early and very late hours and sometimes rude customers but all that's expected when you work in a grocery store. Low wages

    Advice to Management

    Consider having stock men get carts in instead of women cashiers Reasons: 1. You're pulling cashiers off registers. 2. Most women are not as strong as men
    3. Could be dangerous for women after dark.
