    Pros

    Love my actual job and I love the team I work with.

    Understaffing is taking a big toll on all of us. Very frustrating. Pay rates are not competitive so it is getting difficult to stick around when there are many better paying jobs out there.

    Do something to boost employee morale....increase your pay rates to attract future employees.

    I have been working at Giant Eagle full-time

    Pros

    steady work, friendly management and good flexibility with out side obligations (like school or kids etc.)

    Cons

    Little room for advancement if you have not already done the exact job they are looking for for years.

    Advice to Management

    The labor market has moved past 2008. Since you are not a company that offer out of this world pay or great benefits it is very hard to find some one for a position that will have years of experience doing the exact same position you are hiring for. You should look to promote good workers from within even when they don't have years of experience do an exact job. They know the company the culture and customers. If they are smart ambitious they can grow into positions and offer more upside then the people you are bring from outside.
