And typical Giant Eagle They won't say which store it was because it would hurt business at a time when they are making money... You owe it to the public to say what store it was GIANT EAGLE. Very poorly run company
Topics regarding layoffs at Giant Eagle
I’m a selector at one of the warehouses. We know of two guys on our shift that have been quarantined. The manager isn’t doing anything about it. He’s more worried about sending cases out. I can’t believe that We are sending cases out that these guys... — read more
I have to say Giant Eagle's response to its "Team Members" has been horrible. They are yet to do anything for the Team Members working in the stores. If you ask about a Team Member getting sick from the virus and having to miss work they are told... — read more
What’s next on the laundry list of newly promoted/hired Vice Presidents? We attend meetings all the time where operations keeps telling us to NOT get wrapped up in all the VP’s we keep hiring and focus on “running great stores”. How can we “run great... — read more
I used to work for GE in Cleveland in a leadership role several years ago and have close contacts still. 1) Giant eagle has bought Shur Save/IGA in Bloomfield 2) 2-3 stores will be closing in Pittsburgh, while keeping the pharmacies open.
Office Purge Day announced to clean desks and cubicles, get rid of extra office supplies. Hmmmm.
At a meeting at corporate, Laura said that we "have more cubicles than parking spaces"......
Is Giant Eagle losing money? If yes, how come? How is this even possible, such a big chain with a ton of management from top schools.
After over 20 years of service to Giant Eagle, I am ready to move on. I’m looking into completely new opportunities and career fields and am super excited for where my life is going to take me. I’m definitely leaning towards being my own boss and... — read more

I am guessing that will all change in a couple weeks when the next rounds of buyouts/layoffs occur. How can you be so certain more buyouts and layoffs will happen in a few weeks? Was there an announcement that I missed? Or is this just wild... — read more
It is happening again. It has now been confirmed, layoffs again. To be announced this upcoming Monday, 8/26/19.
We are quickly approaching the anniversary of the MASSIVE corporate layoff event where police were called, folks unknowingly shut out, peoples lives changed forever, etc. How do I know this you ask? Well, it’s simple quite frankly: 1) It happens... — read more
Please give some basic people skills and anger management training to Giant Eagle Store Managers. It's needed. This employee group needs a serious intervention. I've worked for competitors and I can compare Giant Eagle Store Managers with other Store... — read more
Every year, we have to watch the Ethics video narrated by our CEO. Unfortunately, some members of management don't abide by these rules. Once you get in the "good old boys club" you have it made. Some of the perks you get consist of "free" PTO to go... — read more
I work at one of the Ohio stores and it's going downhill fast. Giant Eagle does not care about their employees at all!! They just found out a way to cut more hours by giving the cash office jobs to the coordinators and self checkout workers. They... — read more
Anyone know exactly when the store is closing? I heard the ELT discussing its closing but they need to find a relocation property prior to making the announcement.
What happened to this site?? It wasn’t censored in the past and now all the sudden they are erasing posts that don’t violate anyone’s privacy! I posted only first names about public figures in the company, specifically only the CEO and GM of GetGo... — read more
Missing a great roast. I suppose this site does not allow any personal insults. Oh well.
New year, new closings. Giant Eagle in Willoughby Hills will be no more as of February 2. Anybody knows if any more closings have been announced or if this is it? Somehow I doubt they'd stop at only one... — read more
Does anyone know why or when they started letting managers appeal there transfers?
A Regional Vice President’s husband promoted. Again!!! WTF?
Isn’t anyone gonna talk about the new “labor model” coming soon called “the soup”??? Aaaaaaand go! — read more
G.E. in Salem Va just laid off 42 production workers The company is now asking people to work 10 hours a day 7 days a week Where did all of this work suddenly come from There has been no positive news coming from the company So someone please explain... — read more
For the most part I actually enjoy working at Giant Eagle. We have decent benefits, flexibility, and most people I work with are some of the best folks I've met in my life. But the management's treatment of employees ruins most of that any day. There... — read more
not sure if this is only my store, but morale has hit an all time low... it's not surprising considering giant eagle only cares about higher ups and not its people... they'd pay us at least a little better if they did... and maybe gave us better... — read more
I understand where the old "customer is always right" adage comes from, but I think it's time we say enough is enough. No matter what the customer does, the manager'll side with them, making the rest of us look like idiots. And I mean anything... — read more
I'm getting really tired of being given more and more work and responsibilities for the same pay. We are sometimes doing the work of three or four people, not sure how long we can last like this! I'm not surprised people are quitting or simply not... — read more
GE has been doing some shady things when it comes to their financials. They will claim and post hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of credits ( money that other businesses owe them) but never receive the money. But it still goes on their balance... — read more
It's got the most competition so I figure it's not good. I thought it was pretty ominous when I saw that they redid their referral program and now you get $100 if someone stays on the job for 6 months, but in Columbus you get $500. They must be... — read more
What an awe inspiring and energizing Town Hall Meeting last week. Can you feel the synergy?
They just launched FuelPerks Plus in Columbus and it'll be rolled out in other markets soon, so expect a big turnaround soon. Come on, we all know the deal. Everyone who currently works for Giant Eagle should be actively looking for new employment... — read more
They have been cutting hours at my store too and were one of the busier stores.They used to post daily managers meeting notes now they only post notes when sales are down and they want to justify cutting hours and running bare bones crews Same here... — read more
If you have 30 years of service, are you able to retire. I do not work there I just had a back and forth with my gf on this, she claims that you can and I claim that you cannot.
One thing I noticed too is that around 2012/2013, they stopped posting how much money in sales each store was making in the district too. They had revenue figures from each store on it, plus where they ranked in sales. They're probably too... — read more
They're also micromanaging everything too to a tee. That's bad when they even freak out about the amount of bags being used by the cashiers acting like the bags alone will bankrupt the store. The shoplifting is worth more than the box of bags they... — read more
I would give this company another 3-5 years before it goes belly up at least in the Northeast Ohio area. Day by day, the stores begin to look like how Tops looked like towards the end when they went bust and bankrupt. Something is wrong when you go... — read more
