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

Pros

At Giant Eagle the people are generally very nice and I get along with most of them. There is something for everyone at this store, and it is union based. There is a lot of room for growth and it really isn't hard at all to become a team leader if you really put your mind to it. Several breaks are given depending on shift length. You are also given a 10% discount on OWN brands. Paid vacation is available for part time and full time workers, and health benefits as well.

Cons

The worst part of working in my department are probably the customer complaints, but this is expected in a prepared foods department. Another downside is the management. It's not that the managers as people are bad, it's that they seem to have trouble communicating with each other. Pay is relatively low, but also expected in the food industry. It can sometimes be difficult to get a full time position. Hours consistently get cut on part-time workers. Too much can sometimes be demanded. The customer is always right, even if they are CLEARLY wrong.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep consistent schedules. Take suggestions from your workers. Just because you get paid more than us, does not mean that you are much better than us.

    Continue to listen to your everyday team members. We have so much to offer this company, and over the past few years I have seen corporate realize that. It is obvious management respects ALL of their employees regardless of where they fall on the totem pole. It is greatly appreciated.
