I have been working at Giant Food

Pros

variety of positions to work in, great benefits, have a union to protect you, other employees are very friendly, customers are very friendly.

Cons

only 15 minute breaks if working 5 hours or less, cannot get more than 5 hours a shift unless you cover for a no show, management not caring about emplyees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be friendlier to your employees and get to know them, do NOT show animosity towards employees, be considerate when an employee has an emergency and needs to leave a few minutes early!

    I worked at Giant Food

    Pros

    good insurance, 75% coverage free.. no monthly commitment to it.

    simple place to work. Not best career choice as there is little room to go up.

    Cons

    sucks especially if ur not a skilled worker. Register attendents get fired on a daily basis with little reason or warrant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if u want to work here and make some easy money go ahead but do not put in any form of loyalty to the business and do not cover for people. do not try to be nice. just work make ur cash and go home.

    Department manager unfair with when schedule requests must be put in
    Low weekly hours
    Get called in constantly instead of being scheduled

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise hourly pay
    Hire better management
