    Painful to work at

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -One of the highest paid positions at the store

    Cons

    -Managers are toxic and will ignore your request for off unless you ask them about it in person -Customers are entitled and ungrateful -Extremely low-staffed so the hours border full-time even if you are only working part-time

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Part time employees get vacation, personal, and sick time based on average hours worked. Always able to accommodate schedule requests for students. Great work place relationships.

    Cons

    Started at $9/hr 5 years ago, but I believe they raised the minimum to $11/hr in the past years.

    Flexible schedule, easy work load (can get busy at times), friendly co workers, ability to switch departments, decent benefits, definitely a good way to get your daily steps in.

    Cons

    Pretty low pay compared to other entry level part time jobs, some management could be power hungry, many policy changes that affect work flow, expected to perform duties outside your normal job that include cleaning washroom facilities

    Awful

    Dec 6, 2020 - Front End Associate 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The medical insurance is good.

    Cons

    Employees not respected by management, lied too, discrimination. Leaders do not back the employees in their other department when they are being cross-grained, if you are even lucky enough to be cross-grained. If you are full time they and have to take time off for medical reasons upper management doesn't think anything of brining you back part time at a reduced pay and not telling you that those are the conditions that you are being brought back under, even if you come back earlier than planned to help them out.

    That person who fixes the self scan when something goes wrong? I do that. And ssoo much more,

    Apr 29, 2020 - Front End Coordinator in Pittsburgh, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    *Disclaimer: I have worked in the weirdest little Giant Eagle for seven years. But I'm only 23. So I'm in a weird place.* BENEFITS EVEN FOR PART-TIME. VISION, DENTAL, HEALTH. You are usually "promoted" to coordinator "from within" at my store, but this is because they have an immediate need for people. You get a $0.50 premium pay on top of whatever your wage is as a cashier. You get a little more flexibility in terms of where you can be and what you can do.

    Cons

    A lot is asked of you. You have to count all the drawers, keep the place clean, put up cigarettes and candy, ensure the entire front end gets their break on time, and, if (when) the place is short staffed, you are expected to get on a register and coordinate, at the same time. You are expected to have a good grasp of all policy and solve problems. You may be asked to be trained in other positions (customer service, beer and wine), in case those departments are short staffed. I often think that the fifty cents is not worth all of the responsibility that's added on.
