They provide benefits for part-time employees. I worked with some very nice people. The company was involved in many fundraisers which supported the local community. They acknowledged employee efforts with scratch off tickets.
At times I felt sexual/age discrimination. Because I'm a woman, and worked in a department of all men, and was the oldest person (in my forties), consistently, I received the fewest hours on the schedule, even when I had excellent yearly evaluations. I also observed favoritism on a regular basis. Some people were fired for the smallest infraction, while others committed huge infractions, with no consequences. Although the company feels it trains employees efficiently, the "training programs" hardly exist.
Advice to Management
Try to treat employees more fairly across the board. Devise a consistent training program for new-hires. Cease with the nepotism. Offer a better competitive wage. Treat employees with respect,not with condensation. Especially in cases where a customer filed a complaint against an employee, the customer was wrong, yet the company took the side of the customer and reprimanded the employee.

I applied online. The process took 6 days – interviewed at Giant Food Stores (Broomall, PA) in April 2015.
I applied at their website and was called a few days later for interview. The interview went well and the lady referred me to have another interview with the night manager at 9pm. After the interview, the night manager offered me the job. As long as you have open availability,you guaranteed to be hired.
If you have previous experience, they ask me how much i made an hour from my last job i told them $9.00 then they offered me $9.50.
