    I have been working at Giant Eagle part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the work is mindless and repetitive, usually get the days off you request

    Cons

    Redundant policies to "insure" tasks are completed. No room for advancement. Only cross training in different departments, which causes friction between department leads. Full time employees and team leader reluctant to train beyond basic tasks, despite several years of loyal service. Time between shifts is less than what is stated in contract.

    Advice to Management

    Team member morale and customer service suffer when the store leader and "team leaders" are unapproachable; don't work as a team with their "team members" AR system glitches often numbers always off despite inventory.

    Pros

    Good insurance, get raises regularly that's about all that can be said positively about working here, at least at the carmel location.

    Cons

    Claim to be a family company, but penalize you for anything and everything. Cannot miss a day of you are sick or you points, can't leave early for emergency or you get a point. Basically anything you do gets you a point which leads to suspensions. They are not consistent in who gets in trouble for what.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that things happen and treat your employees like they have lives outside of the store, dont punish them for having emergencies or sickness.
