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 for 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.

    I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They were very flexible and scheduled around my classes. I got a pay raise every few months because they are a union company.

    Cons

    Only 2 15- minute breaks per 8 hour shift. They don't have baggers so you have to bag your own groceries.

    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.
