    I worked at Giant Eagle as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Typical office environment, M-F 9-5, good hours, professional relationships and meetings. There is an internship project and presentation to top executives.

    Cons

    I do not enjoy an office environment and feeling of being trapped sitting in a cubicle for 40 hours per week only to leave for the occasional meeting.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to advance or discover other interests

    The only con I can think of is that I wish there were more corporate stores, because I work for a corporate store rather than an independent store mainly
    lbecause the benefits are better and more opportunities.
