    Insurance is expensive,transfers between locations, your experience relies on the store leader, work life balance awful required to work 9-6 four days and 1-10 one day. Holidays always. No respect for young people in the work force.

    Pros

    Lots of fun people to work with.
    Very flexible hours
    Great for seasonal employees

    Cons

    Gets boring at times
    Nothing is ever done because "it makes sense"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When doing renovations, talk to the people who will actually be working in the department so you know what to include and what isn't necessary. Also, try to hire managers that actually care about the company and people.

    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I received a couple of raises while working at Giant Eagle and got to make many friends with all of my coworkers. It was an enjoyable experience.

    Cons

    The cons that I had were probably dealing with the management and atmosphere. The higher up people were not friendly and never really helped out, and maybe this is just my store, but it was jam-packed 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and be there for your employees.
