I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

You at least do get raises due to the Union.

Work around college schedules

Another benefit to the Union is at least not having to overly worry about getting fired due to a manager that dislikes you.

Cons

Overly obvious that corporate puts the money before everyone else and does everything it can to push more for less by overworking employee's rather than just hiring another person but then acting surprised when customers complain about things like really long lines.

Management in the stores always will play favorites with constant double standards (you do something and get yelled at but that other person will never hear a word). Quite a few lazy management as well who will tell you to go do anything they don't want to do while they sit at customer service talking to their buddies or texting on their phones while 'watching' the self check outs. Obviously this will vary by store.

Working every Holiday except Christmas so they can pull in every little penny. Guarantee Corporate makes sure they're off each holiday after they make sure to send out plastic signs to throw in the breakroom 'thanking' their employee's and saying how much they 'respect' our hard work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being so greedy and actually care about your employees.

    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.
