How are senior leaders perceived at Giant Eagle?

Pros

Decent benefits for hourly employees, heath insurance discounts if you pass certain regulations, flexible scheduling if they don't implement their new "automatic scheduling" that a computer decides.

Cons

Pay is entirely too low. The execs say people aren't leaving because of the pay, they say people are leaving because the lack of training. That is so wrong. People are leaving because the workload is increased while the pay is limited. This year, they lowered the highest raise amount allowed, making it only possible to get a .45 raise if you were the perfect employee . They made it even harder to obtain raises. Some co-workers who have been there for years had gotten only a .10 raise, while raises in the past we're higher. How does that make sense? They took away pensions recently. Upper management of stores do not care about hourly associates unless they're 'buddies'. I have worked at 2 different stores with store leaders who never said hi to you in the morning, or asked how the department was doing unless they were speaking go the department leads. It makes for a very disconnected relationship between so called "leaders" and their teams. There is something fundamentally wrong with the way this company runs their stores. I soon see them closing most Giant Eagles and focusing more on their Get-Go's.

Advice to Management

Make your hourly employees feel like they're worth something. A simple 3 minute conversation asking the employees that make your store happen makes all the difference to that person. Treat your employees well, and they will treat you well. Or sell the company already and move on.
