    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

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

    I worked at Giant Eagle as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot, I mean a lot of very nice people who try to do their best everyday.
    Nice campus environment
    WFH policies are very liberal

    Cons

    Executive team is completely lost. Industry is transforming and GE is replacing a curbside application for the 3x. Small investments being made that have been trumped by the competition. No vision, no roadmap, no leadership.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot cut your way to prosperity. Brain drain post layoffs will accelerate. Leadership team and family need to take a step back and assess what they want to do, how to get there and do they have the intestinal fortitude, brainpower and resources to make it happen.

    I have been working at Giant Eagle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Get paid weekly. No skills required

    Cons

    Company never gives recognition. Company is all about "What have you done for us lately". When you work for this company during the Christmas Holiday you quickly find out how cheap they are. They never do any thing nice for employees during the Holiday. You always hear what nice things companies do for employees doing the Holiday season. You won't get that from Giant Eagle. They don'y like to hire employees so they run stores on the least amount of labor as possible. Job is very unrewarding. Most employees are miserable and that makes everyone miserable.

    Advice to Management

    HIRE MORE PEOPLE..

    Pros

    No education needed, Good job if your a slacker

    Cons

    Always working shorthanded. Never get many hours. Pay check doesn't pay bills. Working hard doesn't get you rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! 22hrs a week doesn't pay the bills.

    Pros

    Work at home when necessary. Good benefits. Lots of nice coworkers. Able to advance. Good career. Good wages. Lots of work.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of at this time. Maybe training could be more extensive and more vacation days, need to work as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to everyone. More loyalty is gained if management would be more accessible instead of at meetings.
