    I worked at Giant Eagle (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary at the time & benefits

    Cons

    I worked with some of the most unkind, insecure, hateful females in the dept. I worked in, and the team lead set the example. That person was miserable and made everyone else miserable. It's all they've done since high school. Sad for people to have to deal with those kinds of people and I honestly, unfortunately have no good memories of my experience there.

    Advice to Management

    You should give some kind of demerits to people who thrive on gossip, just like you reward people when the public gives reviews to try & win the $2000.00 contests from the sales receipt.

    Its good company to work for and your day went by so wuick if you enjoy what you do.

    Cons

    Not so great pay soecially if you been with company for so long plus what you earn compare to new employee without experience they earn more. I think company need to take this as concideration for their old hard working employees salary. They are the one who holding great customer service.

    Need raise or hire enough emloyee.
