    I worked at Giant Eagle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some really great people and really great products within every department of Giant Eagle.

    Cons

    Management doubts their own wisdom, so they follow others rather than lead and innovate. Every new location is a prototype. There is no thread of consistency or real brand look for any of their retail stores. It's like they just throw anything and everything against the wall to see if anything sticks.

    Advice to Management

    You've been doing this a long time. You know your prices are too high. You know what's necessary to lower prices. First do what's necessary then get some confidence and stand behind a model that works and roll it out. Consistently!
