    I have been working at Giant Eagle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and a weekly paycheck.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to other companies in the area and for the most part, unless you are a pharmacist, the higher ups do not care about your input.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the input from your technicians and pharmacists, the technicians interact the most with the customer and know more about how the policies ACTUALLY play into the work day..whether they are working or not, how happy people really are, the common complaints, etc. Pharmacists have great input too, I've heard it myself, but your technicians deserve better treatment...perhaps the company would not have so many open positions for technicians if we felt valued, appreciated, and fairly compensated for all the work we do.

    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Long term Team -member friendship, decent pay, Opportunities for advancements.

    Cons

    Little to no recognition for hard work. Management favoritism. Unrealistic hours and days off.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to recognize Front-End Team-members and bring moral up and the store would be more pleasant to not only shop at but to also work at.

    I worked at Giant Eagle part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can have a really flexible schedule if you work on the front-end. The union benefits for healthcare are amazing and truly the only reason I stayed so long.

    Cons

    They do not promote from with-in. There's tons of toxic managers and leaders. The company is going downhill fast.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure everyone at the top.

    Pros

    Great company history with people who care about each other. There are pockets of teams you want to be on!

    Cons

    Currently in a challenged business environment, searching for the next niche.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the ineffective leaders you chose to keep vs. the effective Team Members you let go. Track records are important and the current leadership doesn't have a good one. Let's see real results before moving on.
