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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Giant Eagle was a nice place to work at times, but the managers were always stressed out and often cranky.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    -Concerned about safety
    -union job
    -useful benefits (10% off GE products means lots saved from groceries)
    -understanding managers
    -good work atmosphere, all coworkers are very nice

    Cons

    -work schedule changes weekly
    -for part time, the number of hours changes weekly
    -fingerprint recognition on punch clocks is spotty and can be very frustrating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    regular work schedules or regular shift times would be nice, also the punch clocks could use some upgrading, it shouldn't take 7-8 tries regularly for a print to be recognized.
