    I worked at Hannaford Bros. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty solid starting pay, schedule was workable, store manager was understanding as could be and was extremely cool-headed.

    Cons

    Night shift takes a lot of mental fortitude. Some very toxic people end up working it because they're physically able but a pain to deal with. Not a summer job experience I'd care to repeat.

    Advice to Management

    Rein in some of the attitudes of the more salty employees.

    I worked at Hannaford Bros. (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company supports local food sources, and donates to local charities including soup kitchens. Most of my coworkers between both stores I worked at were great to work with.

    Cons

    Work environments vary greatly store to store. The first store I worked at, it was difficult to move up in position, it felt like a toxic environment, and I was tricked into a lower position with half the hours I had been working when I had tried to transfer back there. The other store I worked at was a much friendlier place, and I was given a better position and better hours, as well as health insurance.

    Health insurance is not really worth it if you're not full time. Company had no problem dropping five extra stores just to sell three.

    Advice to Management

    Show more care to your employees. The care shown to local sources and charities is great, but your workers could use a little more help once in a while, too.
