    I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supportive managers, coordinators, and team members. Managers are ready to give employees the benefit of the doubt. High flexibility in work schedule for students, parents with small children and for the semi-retired. Rewarded for filling in when staff is shorthanded. Rewarded with many incentives for promoting charities during certain times of the year (i.e. United Way and Harvest for Hunger). Given monetary incentives for improving and/or monitoring your overall health. Real pro-employee in other words. Retirement fund.

    Cons

    Not enough full-time positions. Moving up within the company is moderate to slow due to the job security. People tend to retire from Giant Eagle so enough said there. Very soft on customer policy. Customers are allowed to return items without a receipt; customers are allowed to return products that have been in their homes for months. They allow customers to return completely used items (empty packages, empty jars, cans) for full refund. In some cases where customers are really irate, the manager will even allow them to return items from other stores!

    Advice to Management

    Stick with store policy and quit caving in to irate and spoiled brat customers. This creates a hostile atmosphere when team members attempt to encourage customers to adhere to store policy. Customers quickly yell, "The manager lets me do this so why don't you!!"

    I worked at Giant Eagle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good benefits, generally 45-50 hours for management, company dominates this market and will be around for a long time.

    Cons

    Poor consistency in communication, different level of development and expectations according to what division you work for, and it was highly beneficial to have a very well known last name/relative to help move along your career. Some union areas and some non-union areas...very disjointed.

    Advice to Management

    Clear up the communication channels to give honest and accurate feedback. Honestly, my time there felt like a good old boys club. Not quite the level of professionalism I was expecting after going through the interview process. Training was horrible to say the least.
