      Busy Job

      Pros

      ** I worked in the deli section of Giant so my experience might not be the same as someone working as a cashier ** The starting Employee discount is useful as it is a grocery store. Good platform for interaction with customers to build customer service experience. Provides insight into the food service industry, especially if you work in the deli. I have more respect for grocery store workers.

      Cons

      The pay often times seems lackluster for the amount of work put in. Massive amounts of busywork such that if you finish all the work assigned there is still more work. Definitely not a stand around waiting job in the deli. The company is run by a union so if one wants to receive a raise the best option is to join the union for a monthly fee.
