Current Employee - Front End Cashier in Pittsburgh, PA

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

Pros

good work environment, great benefits for part time work, some good managers, opportunities to branch out into different areas of the company

Cons

always cutting back hours, very hard to get full time, some very bad managers, good managers always seem to leave too soon while bad managers tend to stay around longer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

base hours on performance of individual stores rather than overall needs of the company, put stores in direct competition with one another to build a sense of pride within each store, don't force employees to switch stores just to get full time, make it easier to get full time by basing it on time of employment rather than letting people work for ten or even twenty years and nothing to show for it but a certificate, give employees individual evaluations to let them know how they are doing and allow them to develop a career path and give them better access to your career training and advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    The insurance plan is one of the best I've seen. They are pretty flexible when it comes to scheduling.

    Cons

    The workload is getting to be too much for the number of people they employ in this position. There is no sick time, vacation weeks are few and far between. Management are the only ones to receive bonuses (if earned), the people doing the work don't see any of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more hours to the stores to have enough help - if you want to increase sales, then we need to be able to put the product out! And if you're going to do bonuses, everyone should get it, we all do the work.

    Pros

    hard time thinking of any pros, how about always moving, great exercise

    Cons

    OMG where to start, low pay, understaffed, some departments will work like a pack mule while employees in another department just stand around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit worrying about your share holders bottom line and do what's right by your employees.
