Good job to have while at school

Former Employee - Grocery Clerk in Brunswick, OH
Former Employee - Grocery Clerk in Brunswick, OH

I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Flexible scheduling, friendly co-workers, good experience

Cons

Hard to move up, management will play favorites, not enough raises (probably due to being in the United Food and Commercial Workers Union) which you have to be in to work there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't play favorites and reward the people who actually do the job well.

    Current Employee - Pharmacy Technician in Glenshaw, PA

    I have been working at Giant Eagle full-time

    Pros

    most of the employees in the pharmacy are nice

    Cons

    not all of the employees have been trained enough. i think that all employees who work in the pharmacy should know how to do all aspects of the job, not just how to run a register and answer a phone. we have employees who have been with giant eagle for over a year and all they do is run the register in the pharmacy. they need to be able to re-bill rx's and put thru refills and run rx's thru.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i think the pharmacy techs do not make enough of money for all they are expected to do. the pharmacist make all the money and thee techs are expected to do everything.

    Current Employee - Cashier in Wexford, PA

    I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    High hourly rate ($9.05/hr), as opposed to surrounding jobs.
    Hire at 16.
    Great management, they really listen and are very kind.
    Company is very nice to employees, have already received three bonuses, one of which was a sign on bonus.
    $0.50 raise at six months, and another $0.50 raise at twelve months, no matter what your age. This means you could potentially be a high school student making 10 bucks an hour!
    Paid 15 minute breaks.
    As you gain seniority, you will have more leverage in choosing what hours you want to work.

    Cons

    Hours during the summer are very competitive and limited, this might be a problem for high school and college students, as this is prime time to get in hours.
    This is not a problem unique to this company, but cashiering is a very boring job, and candidates should seriously consider if they are up for this job.
    Management is very restricting on hours if you are a minor. You will normally average 4.5 hour shifts at 5 days a week (22.5 hours / week) during the school year, but rarely will they give you shifts above 4.5 hours. This can be a problem for people who want to work less days, but the same number of hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more lenient on your minors with hours, or at least give them the chance to prove themselves of being responsible enough to take longer shifts.
