Food Lion Grocery Store Online Job Application

Updated on December 7, 2010

Even in today's economy, one thing is certain, people still have to eat. Even if the price of food rises, while some may gripe and complain, they still buy the groceries. What does that mean for you? Well, it's good news for anyone interested in getting a grocery store job at places like Food Lion, no matter what kind of position you're looking for, chances are there is an opening for you.

What better place to work than a supermarket chain that is well known like Food Lion. When many people think supermarket jobs, what usually comes to mind are bag boys, cashiers, and stock people. While there are opportunities such as these, there are also so many other positions offered. Maybe you are looking for a career in the supermarket field. There are more managerial jobs than you can shake a stick at. Just in the retail side of it, you could be a shift or department manager, or even an assistant or store manager.

There are corporate offices for Food Lion, located in Salisbury, NC, with many opportunities in all types of fields available. You could also work in distribution and trucker, transporting products for stores all over the area! Here is where you can generally be your own boss, delivering products to store locations, unloading and moving on to the next store.

Some of you may ask yourself, "that's sounds great, but what are the benefits?" Well, let's start with health care. You can receive full medical coverage, including all the major top needs, medical, dental, as well as vision. But it doesn't stop there, also offered is a spending account opportunity, where you can have money taken out of your check, put aside, and if you need to pay for any costs not covered by their insurance plans, you just use the money from this account to pay for whatever isn't covered.

You get paid vacations, paid holidays, and even a retirement plan. Plus, every year you get a bonus, which is a percentage of what Food Lion's annual revenue is. This is completely provided by the company, and is dependent on profits for the year. Plus you also get a wellness bonus, a percentage of their annual earnings, which is covered 100% by Food Lion. This bonus is presented to people who have stayed healthy and haven't missed any workdays.

It isn't hard to fill out a Food Lion online job application, it can easily be found on their website. You need to remember a few things first before beginning the application process. One thing is to be prepared. Have all your information accurate and up to date, You should have put together all of your references, work and educational history, all ready to be input into the application.

Be honest, make sure you put down what position you're looking for, not 'any' because if you don't know what you want, how will they know? If you aren't sure, look over the positions that are available and pick the one you think you can do the best. Some people have mad math skills that would make them a good cashier, stuff like that. Above all, don't get rushed, it is online after all so you can take your time.
