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

    Pros

    There is one pro and one pro only: the Union. Paid vacation. Paid sick days. Guaranteed raises based on hours worked. Those only exist because of our union organizing.

    Cons

    The company makes it obvious through all of their actions - their detrimental policies, their selective enforcement of rules, their disregard for their own employees well-being, their disregard for their own responsibilities - that they DO NOT care about their employees. The basic vibe from management is "The Union says we have to treat you like worthwhile humans and workers, and we fully resent that and will do everything in our power to be able to treat you worse."

    Advice to Management

    The management of this company is the entire problem. They're mindless MBA drones with no original ideas, desperately floating on a tiny raft of incompetence held together with lashings of business jargon and flavor-of-last-week ideas.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a part time job its pretty good.
