    Love hate relationshop

    Stock Clerk (Former Employee)
    Baden, PA

    ProsGood hours, good people, decent pay for a part time job. Overall I didn't mind going to work which says a lot for my first job, I think. I actually really liked my bosses and they were understanding and easy to get along with.

    ConsWeird scheduling, boring work sometimes. The job itself could be mundane and boring but the hours weren't too long so it was nothing unbearable.

    Advice to Senior Managementmore room for advancement!

    Love it, hours suck.

    File Maintenance Clerk (Current Employee)
    Warren, OH

    ProsI love my department manager as well as the store owner and store manager. Very flexible as well as good pay..(if you get enough hours) They are flexible and understanding with late's and call-offs. i don't know if that was just my department or the whole store. i earned a weeks paid vacation in just 90 days. They also have opportunities for benefits which i haven't needed. i also love the 10 percent off giant eagle brand products that comes with being an employee! Getting paid weekly also helps alot.

    ConsThere is little room to grow and advance in my department. (file maintenance) The other departments managers and my fellow co workers are mostly young women, enough said. ALOT of petty drama but nothing that cant be taken care of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would really look into giving more hours to stores to give the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good starting job but not a long term position

    Fuel Station Attendant (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsStraightforward, empowering workplace. Great 401K and pension plan. Managers, in general, feel more like friends than bosses. It's very hard to get fired. Flexible schedule.

    ConsLack of major promotion potential. Disproportionate work ethic between employees. Corporate communication between stores is lacking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more from within!

    Great store

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsStore has a lot to choose from, also deli hot food is very very good, and the workers thru out the whole store are so nice and pleasant, which make shopping a lot better. Bakery is wonderful also and with the meat and all others stuff, just great , clean and nice.

    ConsA little bit pricey, but still will take for nice and friendly and clean.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMight need a few more people to work, sometime to check out takes forever, or waiting on other depts also can be slow due to not enough workers.

    Overall a good place to work temporarily

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsHigher than minimum wage, flexible hours, great atmosphere.

    ConsSnobby customers, availability when scheduling is sometimes ignored.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on your interpersonal skills and ability to deal with team members in a better way. When I was hired, you promised that the team member came first, but I do not think that this is truly the case any longer.
