    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.

    Restructure everyone at the top.

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

    Pros

    Pros

    Very accommodating to your schedule. Get raises and bonuses often. Will accommodate any physical restrictions if possible.

    Cons

    Employees come and go as the wind changes. Drug test is a joke; almost all the youngster smoke weed and come to work high. Employs people that are too young to have any work ethics.

    Pros

    Very flexible with student schedules. Good pay and regular raises. Union positions inside stores.

    Corporate always tries to push new policies every few weeks without regard to how stores are actually run. Hours cut more and more each week to skeleton staff levels.

    Advice to Management

    Study the stores and how they run before you put ass-backward policies in place.
