I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

good work environment, great benefits for part time work, some good managers, opportunities to branch out into different areas of the company

Cons

always cutting back hours, very hard to get full time, some very bad managers, good managers always seem to leave too soon while bad managers tend to stay around longer

Advice to Management

base hours on performance of individual stores rather than overall needs of the company, put stores in direct competition with one another to build a sense of pride within each store, don't force employees to switch stores just to get full time, make it easier to get full time by basing it on time of employment rather than letting people work for ten or even twenty years and nothing to show for it but a certificate, give employees individual evaluations to let them know how they are doing and allow them to develop a career path and give them better access to your career training and advancement opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Friendly management, lots of exposure and lots of new ways to learn provided that you can teach yourself.

    Cons

    No accountability for anyone - bad team leaders are just transferred and problems are just kicked around instead of solved. Priorities for the company have become very misguided and pay scale is out of line for impactful positions.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to identify the top performers, and then get rid of the dead weight. Too many new initiatives that drive up overhead - we are selling groceries and the simpler we can make it, the better the company will be as a whole.

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

    Pros

    hard time thinking of any pros, how about always moving, great exercise

    Cons

    OMG where to start, low pay, understaffed, some departments will work like a pack mule while employees in another department just stand around.

    Advice to Management

    Quit worrying about your share holders bottom line and do what's right by your employees.
