Featured Review

Current Employee - Petsmart PetsHotel Associate

I have been working at PetSmart part-time

Pros

Lots of time with dogs!

Cons

My only complaint honestly would be just that it did get boring spending hours in a room with energetic dogs.

Current Employee - Senior Data Analyst

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

Pros

Although Giant Eagle has many locations and thousands of employees, you are still appreciated as an individual and valued -- just like family. Giant Eagle actively promotes inclusion and diversity... rather than simply paying lip service to these values. Because Giant Eagle is a privately held company, it has the ability to make strategic decisions beyond the next quarterly earnings report, but Giant Eagle is also small enough to move with an agility and swiftness that publicly traded behemoths cannot match.

Cons

Data sharing and input across divisions within the company could be more streamlined.

Advice to Management

A comprehensive approach to documenting and maintaining policies and procedures, although onerous, would improve efficiency.
