    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some decent people to work with. Good HR and upper management.

    Cons

    Some managers are lazy and disrespectful. Never tell you thanks for anything, and talk badly about you behind your back even when a good job has been done. Very understafed and get paid minimal for doing the workload of two. If you are not a manager chances are depending on which department you work in you will be taken advantage of then treated horribly

    Advice to Management

    Keep a better eye on department managers some are not worth the position they have, and take extreme advantage of extended breaks and lunches. Also leave whenever they want without asking if everything in the department is okay.

    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work. No day to day responsibilities

    Cons

    Very low pay. Work environment is best suited for high school kids. Company does not enforce policies and when they do they are very selective.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better. Make some company rules and stick to them. Stop trying to make everybody happy by letting things slide..

    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    paid weekly. No skills needed to work at this place

    Cons

    Company won't hire more employees which forces you to always work shorthanded. Current long term employees are very angry about the company which makes for a very negative work force. Can't pay bills with the money Giant Eagle pays you. Only 22 hrs a week

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees and pay a decent wage

    Pros

    Easy job to get. They will hire anybody because they are always shorthanded

    Felt unsafe. Had to open and close store alone. Never felt safe being alone in store. Store was never properly staffed

    Stop scheduling employees to work alone at night (not safe)
