    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working with the many customers that shop Giant Eagle. Giant Eagle has a great employee and customer based system. I found working at Giant Eagle was very rewarding because they have employee discounts, and there is always opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    I had to work mornings everyday. Sometimes customers would put me in predicament I didn't like, for example, lying to me or another employee to get something free.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a good eye one customers and employees because sometimes customers and employee break the rules and it's a big hassle to others if that happens.

    I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time

    Pros

    The environment is very friendly and all of employers there are nice as well.

    Cons

    The raises are very minimal and come every 6 months and the union takes away a lot of the money. Also you have to pay a 75 dollar fee in the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Giant eagle is a great place to work at.
