"I’ve been at foodlion since I was 16 and it’s a good company with great benefits and good environment for working"
"I've been there five months & overall it's just a job but not where I see myself in the future."
"I had no issues with management. My wages were fair and I was given reviews of my performance so I was allowed to self improve. My experience wasn't pleasant or unpleasant. If I had any problems, reporting to management was easy and any issues were handled efficiently and with confidentiality."
"I have worked for Food Lion, Inc. over a period of 10 plus. The only problem I have with this company is the pay and how they promote individuals. I have a great relationship with all employees, vendors, and customers. I really feel that if they paid employees more they wouldn't have as much turned over."
"As far as the managers go they are very disrespectful. they bully their employees and they don’t care about their employees especially the customer service manager she can’t keep people upfront because she allows her position at the company to go to her head. this is why lots of people want to quit or change positions."
"If you are a self motivated, self determined, and self starting individual, then Food Lion wants you! I am so excited to. E working for a company that promotes you within months. I started out as a FFD associate, then got promoted to Grocery Manager, took a step down to be a Produce Manager, and now I am an Evening Manager. Yes, it is hard yet steady work. You have to be a people person, a problem solver, a student, a teacher, and sometimes even a robot! They also offer so many different discounts on things as far as on the website for other things we purchase. I use the auto insurance, 401k, and health benefits. This company has really helped me become stable financially. I am grateful."
"It is excellent company to work for."
"Great people to work with/for"
"I’m the man for the job. No explanation needed. I stand out. I get the job (any job) done. Any employer that I’ve worked for would take me back with no questions asked. I’ve only ever left a company for a higher paying job. I excel in any and every role. I've never ask to be promoted, the talent speaks for itself. I’m teachable along with being a great teacher and trainer. I’ll turn your worst employee to your best one. I’ll bring skills you’ve never seen before. I’m him."
"I enjoy my job because of the people I work with. It's all about the culture from place to place, and the branch I work in is very team-oriented and stresses a family dynamic. That has been my experience, but again, that varies from place to place based on leadership."
"Have worked there for many years, and while there were rules for no food on the front end which makes sense, drinks were always permitted until recently. Every other employee in every other department throughout the store can easily leave their workstation unattended for bathroom, water fountain and smoking breaks and nearly all of them do so often. But cashiers can only leave at break time or customer traffic permitting, which sometimes leaves us waiting for an hour or more for a trip to the water fountain, which is unacceptable in light of the fact that no other employee in the store has that restriction. Because of that and because a cashier's job requires excessive talking which is dehydrating to provide even basic customer courtesy, far more than any other job in the store, cashiers should at least be permitted to have bottled water at the registers. There are ample places to keep them out of customer sight and well away from the electronics at the front of the store at our workstations. Additionally, one lady cashier is a diabetic and brings her temperature-sensitive medications in an insulated bag that she used to keep by her register with her. They recently told her that had to be stored in the common break room in the back of the store, well out of reach should she need it and well out of sight to supervise it and ensure it's not being tampered with or stolen. Food Lion has been in business a long time, long enough to know what people need to do their jobs well. Water and our meds shouldn't be too much to ask for. So why is it?"
"I'm underpaid for the amount of work I have to do and the distance I come to work. They put an extreme amount of work on me, want it perfect in 40 hours, and lied to me telling me they were gonna give me more money after 3 months."
"I worked for Food Lion for 4 years, it is a company that provides everyone an opportunity to develop personal skills such as communicating with co-workers, satisfying customers, and following the standard practice. However retail is very unpredictable. Food Lion prepares employees for fast-learning and decision-making circumstances."
"I've only worked for this company for a few weeks."
"Instead of allowing those who are working to get more hours, they insist on hiring more people, cutting those who want to work more hours back. We constantly fight for hours. There is no way one can live on 15 to 23 hours a work week. The overall management of the company does not care about it's associates. Moving up is impossible. Too much favoritism goes on. If you are not in the "in crowd" with the management, do not suck up to management, then you basically get little to no hours. I would not recommend."
