I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-Concerned about safety
-union job
-useful benefits (10% off GE products means lots saved from groceries)
-understanding managers
-good work atmosphere, all coworkers are very nice

Cons

-work schedule changes weekly
-for part time, the number of hours changes weekly
-fingerprint recognition on punch clocks is spotty and can be very frustrating

Advice to Management

regular work schedules or regular shift times would be nice, also the punch clocks could use some upgrading, it shouldn't take 7-8 tries regularly for a print to be recognized.

    I have been working at Giant Eagle full-time

    Pros

    most of the employees in the pharmacy are nice

    Cons

    not all of the employees have been trained enough. i think that all employees who work in the pharmacy should know how to do all aspects of the job, not just how to run a register and answer a phone. we have employees who have been with giant eagle for over a year and all they do is run the register in the pharmacy. they need to be able to re-bill rx's and put thru refills and run rx's thru.

    Advice to Management

    i think the pharmacy techs do not make enough of money for all they are expected to do. the pharmacist make all the money and thee techs are expected to do everything.

    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with Giant Eagle is a good environment and as of the last couple years they have done a lot to improve some aspects of working in their retail locations. If you're looking for part time positions they have flexible hours and it is easy to get time off when needed. I would highly suggest Giant Eagle as a place to work for students or anyone just looking for a basic position to get a pay check.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get full time for the company unless you're in a management position, but if you are going for management the company pretty much owns you. At the higher levels they do pay well, but they will do things like constantly transfer managers to different stores with NO notice and it can be anywhere within up to an hour commute. If you're not a manager there's no real way to be compensated based on merit which was one of the reasons I left after working for the company for 7 years.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a better rewards system for the employees under you that do well but are not compensated. It's demotivating to do a lot of extra work and not get rewarded in a concrete manner.
