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 Management

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

    I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible schedule that is IF you alert them at the time of hiring. Good benefits if you're there long enough.

    Cons

    Workload will increase every 5-6months. raises are union based so basically any and everyone in your department will do varying degrees of work for the same pay. management is an absolute joke and will always pick favorites. There has never been an instance where I had an unruly, unjustifiably mad customer, and a manager took my side, it has always been, appease the customer in any way possible, regardless of the situation. You get a sense of disconnection, and this creates a barrier between management, and workers. Most management is unaware of the workload imposed upon you, and will oftentimes nag, and watch you like a hawk until certain, menial things are done, regardless of the literally dozens of other task asked of you daily.

    Advice to Management

    Work just one day as an employee to gain some perspective.

    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people and customers as well as pay once a week. You could often chose when to go on breaks, but it depended what section of the store you were in. I enjoyed my coworkers.

    Cons

    The store manager was often cranky and rude. Dealing with difficult customers is very annoying. Also Giant Eagle wastes a lot of their expired food. Instead of donating flowers or old food (that is stil good) to a food bank, they would just pitch it.

    Advice to Management

    Calm Down
