I have been working at Giant Eagle full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Growing company with lots of different career paths you can go into and a stated vision to grown even more over the next ten years

Cons

None that I can think of, if you've never been in retail before think hard about it. if you have been in retail then you could do much worse

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

    Pros

    -paid vacation after a year
    -relaxed environment
    -nice coworkers
    -easy

    Cons

    My first day my boss let some random kid train me, and he was only there for an hour. They literally left me empty-handed and I had no idea what to do all day. No training. The job is BS. I work stock and nobody even cares what you do. I'll go there and have barley anything to stock, and when there's nothing to stock, you "block" shelves (make them look pretty). The work is incredibly boring. And it gets annoying when customers constantly ask you where items are when you have no idea, then you have to search the store to find another coworker who knows to help the customer. union dues suck. you only get 15 minute breaks, barley any time to do anything. would prefer a 30 minute break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train your employees and don't just dump them off on somebody else. explain what they need to be doing all day and show them what to do.

    I worked at Giant Eagle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Have a lot of benefits to offer employees.
    Flexibility with schedule
    Work/Life balance

    Cons

    GetGo division has constant changes to policies, directives, and goals.
    Constantly moving store managers to other locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to some of the comments that come from the stores. It's easy to sit in an office and manage a company, but getting out there and seeing what goes on first hand goes a long way.
