Stocker (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – January 15, 2019
Work is inconsistent, and not just because of days when trucks come in. Backstock is hardly ever taken care of and all the work one employee neglects is dumped onto another employee. THis situation is made worse when at times the neglectful employee is a superior. Nevertheless, the environment is friendly and some of the employees are very willing to lend a hand.

they expect more work done than the hours they give you to do the work in. some people are ok to work with some are just lazy and in the way and get to keep their jobs for some reason. not really a future in this company their main objectives are to keep cost low as possible and profits high as possible. they find any reason to get rid of top paid associates to lower budgets.
productive fun days, handling lots of money, learning new departments

Produce Associate (Former Employee) – Wilkesboro, NC – January 14, 2019
I liked working at Food Lion. Their management team is good. They take time to educate you on different things you need for the job. It's very good for teaching safety tips. I would enjoy working for them if they had more opportunities for advancement.

Customer Service & Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Salisbury, NC – January 12, 2019
You usually know what you have to do when you get to work. After you complete your work, you are done and help others in the store to get their work completed, then you can go home. The most important thing I learned from working at Food Lion is about teamwork! Management is supportive and gives feedback. The workplace culture is positive and promotes teamwork.
Front End Associate (Current Employee) – Gloucester, VA – January 11, 2019
Management is on you all the time for the smallest things. Trying to make it sound like their in the right and your in the wrong when your just trying to do your job. Those that work hard are told their terrible and those tht dont work at all are left to do their own thing because no one wants to deal with them.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Carrollton, VA – January 11, 2019
I got paid a good amount for the work I was doing. I can only speak for the front end, but many coworkers are lazy and just walk around the store and talk. Management pick and choose who they let do this, they give certain people 30+ hours a week to just come in and waste time, but give hard working employees no hours. Management views employees as objects instead of assests. Clientele is not bad however, as a matter of fact many regular customers to this store are polite people.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Staunton, VA – January 11, 2019
Food Lion is generally a great place to work. It's fast paced most days & you really get to know your customers on a personal level. Cross training in other departments is a great way to earn extra hours.
Fast paced & generally friendly
Some managers due tend to have unprofessional favortism.
