    Pros

    The union represents it's workers well.

    Cons

    Almost all retail employees are hired at part-time. Sure there will be times when you'll get above 32+ hours a week, and even weeks where you might be offered overtime - those times are rare. A majority of the time you will get three days a week; which comes out to less that 250 a week before taxes. Plan on working unusual hours and also basically every holiday. Chances are that you will also not even be able to obtain full-time within five years. Promotion to full-time is seniority based only upon bid letters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer service can only be provided when there are people that are actually scheduled to help the customers.

    I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional company, fair and frequent pay, generous paid time off, employee incentives, promote from within, steady and consistant employment, geat effort into creating a team environment

    Cons

    A lot of dismissable rhetoric from top management, inconsistant business model, very policy heavy, red tape, always trying to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more pragmatic and realistic with company goals and mission. See what is there and not what you want to see.
