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

    Pros

    -Union
    -Good Co-Workers
    -Above average pay
    -Not expected to do several things at once.
    -Nice Break Room
    -Comfortable Uniforms
    -Flexible Scheduling

    Cons

    -Unstable Hours. Especially right now. I'm getting about 10 hours less then I usually do so far this year.
    - Only hear from Management when your doing something wrong, or they feel your not being productive enough.
    -Short Breaks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more oppurtunities for advancement and raises. I would like to make a career out of Giant Eagle, but it seems especially now like a dead-end job.
    Have hours be more stable, don't slash everyone to the minimum when the company itself is doing well financially.

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

    Pros

    Company has a very good documented core set of values. Provides a lot of opportunities to it's hourly team members. Hourly team members are paid fairly.

    Cons

    Advancement is based mostly on politics and have very little to do with actual ability. Company slogan is "Walk the Talk" but very little of their upper management follow this or ensure that it is being applied. Raises are almost non existing and are based on bias performance reviews that the team member has virtually no voice in. Salary team members are not compensated for working very long hours or working through lunch's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a good core set of values, upper management needs to get involved and make sure that they are being applied fairly across the board.
