Pros

Little to no competition in western PA allows Giant Eagle to be very profitable. The company treats its employees very well and offers a great benefits package.

Cons

The grocery industry isn't the best paying field in general.

    Great place to work through high school and college, and even to start a career afterwards!

    Pros

    Flexibility around school schedules and other work requirements.
    Paid vacations and personal days after one year.
    Great coworkers and fun company culture.
    Amazing employee recognition.
    "Coaching" style of leadership rather than "managing".

    Cons

    After the holidays, they really cut back on the hours they give employees. So you can work 36 hours one week, and then the next week only get 14. And its all based on seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only criticism I have is that you work us full-time during the holidays and then hack our hours, and that creates a lot of stress on employees that depend on their paychecks. Other than that, I enjoy everything else about working here.

    Pros

    Great supervisor
    Good work / life balance

    Cons

    Need to give more training to personel (especially when they ask for it) so they can do their job not just expect the employee to know the information and then base job performance reviews off the expected knowlege.
    Line of Business are still their silo's even thought senior management says they are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cultivating an "A" type culture and be more inclusive of other personality types. Recognize that a company is more than "when is the next store going to open" but how to do keep all the other stores stocked and current as well .
