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

    Pros

    Enjoyed the people I worked with, including my immediate supervisor. Was able to meet a lot of new people.

    Cons

    Upper management could cause stress. Busy days and some customers could cause stress. Had to be able to adapt quickly.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoy my co-workers and managers have developed a great relationship with me personally. If you want to be noticed you have to work extremely hard and for many this is difficult.

    Cons

    There are many cons such as the fact that certain front end coordinators do not respect their co-workers just because they have not been there as long as them. Also I find it frustrating that I don't have the opportunity to grow in the company until I graduate or get an internship, I know many of the inner workers of Giant Eagle and would benefit greatly from a pay upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Please enable your workers and the business to succeed by scheduling more workers more hours and allowing workers that excel to do more tasks.

    No clue what goes on in stores. Constant senior management movement is unsettling.

    Pros

    Pay is good for local 19 workers, newer workers dont get too much

    Cons

    Work place drama, upper management does nothing and we are actually told not to take things to hr. They put someone in charge who is a bipolar alcoholic and can not separate her personal life from work.

    Pros

    Nice people, good team atmosphere. There are some opportunities for advancement.

    Not enough support/ hours given, especially on delivery days. Advancement opportunities are limited.

    Pay more attention to employee concerns and less attention to the concerns and opinions of bigwigs who seemingly have no idea how to run a business

    Pros

    Fellow peers were good to work with. Opportunity to try new ideas and attend free seminars to assist in career development.

    Cons

    Feedback is poor. The company does not follow their core values at certain levels. The food industry is very volatile and creates a sense of a poor outlook for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep investing in the people. Remember to provide feedback when people ask for it.

    Pros

    It's a job, so if you need one until you find something better it'll work out for the time being hopefully not long though.

    Cons

    The union dues are high for basically getting no benefits from it. They took the medical option away after the ACA, they created an entire job title designed to keep people under the 28 hours, where they would have to give insurance, but even without the job title you're lucky to get hours, they're constantly cutting and making the employees do more with less. The union is useless, they don't communicate about meetings, there is hardly ever a steward there, if you even know who the steward is, because they don't tell you. In many years I've been approached by a representative once.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting hours, stop spending money on waste of time things like blueprint, trust that the employees know what to do and don't need a checklist, which just takes more time from the things that need to be done.
