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

Topics regarding layoffs at Giant Eagle
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
This company no longer cares about their employees. They don't pay enough for what they expect out of you and job stability is not there. Employees are constantly being let go because of positions being eliminated. Absolutely no communication with... read more
Hey look, I work at giant eagle corporate. I shop mostly at Aldi's and wal-mart. I won't apologize for it either. Loyalty only goes so far. You can't beat the prices. It is what it is. Giant Eagle is way too expensive. I guess the Shapiro's and their... read more
These are challenging times in the grocery world for the best-run grocery chains. There are problems too numerous to list with leadership, starting with the simple fact that the majority of people in middle and senior leadership/management got their... read more
The following "Rant" and guidance is intended to insult the "Please Come Buy Giant Eagle" party goers , and is NOT intended to insult those who are smart enough to know how asinine this theory really is! To begin, I'll be the first to admit... read more
After the meeting, many Team Members were excited, energized, and invigorated. They like the path being charted.

For my own safety I won't say too much...Just know that there is a 20 step plan that was created roughly 6 years ago. A plan that will insure that the highest level corporate employees will be the ones with the life raft. This Titanic of a shipwreck... read more

Now the company is suing their own over part/full time status. Guess the thinking might be that any free publicity is always good publicity.
Do we think the senior management team will ever get their act together on tackling how much product walks out of our doors? I see someone from LP once in a blue moon it seems, but the store's shrink is sky high. I had heard they hit them with... read more
This place is going down faster than a prom queen on prom night. The leadership plans to raise prices, pay attention and you will see. Raise prices, what the heck? You are already the "most expensive date in town" as one of the senior leadership... read more
If you thought Giant Eagle was done with layoffs, think again.
What is the date for the next set of closings?
It's like a ghost town now, every building is half empty. It's weird I feel like so many good people were let go while a lot of useless people stayed (besides me of course). I noticed around 5/6 years ago, a lot of the same type of people started... read more
Anyonne hear hat GE is closing multiple GetGos?
What are your thoughts?
I am a current Salaried Retail Leader with many years of blind devotion to what I now believe was a hoax! I too have watched as the organization praised unrealistic programs, initiatives, and ideas that couldn't possibly have made my job any more... read more
Everything I have read here is true. All of the wasted money on failing banners. Instead of staying true to what got them here, they greedily attempted to be something they are not and can never be. Instead of being offered something somewhere else... read more
This is what the Iggle is. The morale in the stores has been rock bottom for five years. The training and the hours cuts have led to angry customers who hate to wait. Instead of making what they had strong they expanded their empire too large and too... read more
It looks like many of us here are posting lately, if you have concerns about privacy and what's being posted here please read on... For "threats", layoff dot com will disclose your info to authorities: ...we may disclose log data in order to comply... read more
The executive leadership at Giant Eagle were told to remain home for the actual layoff undertaking that will commence on October 31st. This is due to the fear of retaliation by some of those that will be let go. Of course, no consideration of those... read more
I honestly believe that they might be closing the smaller underperforming stores and either giving them a severence package to get the hell out or moving everyone to other stores. I started noticing problems when I first got to this particular store... read more
Honestly, ......just forgive them. The Lord does vindicate where needed. Forgive yourselves where needed, ask for it, and HE will forgive you..... and please forgive the others. Don't be tormented by this. Its hard for some of you but just do it and... read more
Giant Eagle is getting rid of 450 corporate employees. There are 1,200 TOTAL! That's not a 1% reduction. Giant Eagle lied and gave news false information to hide what they are doing to their people. Monday they gave 5 days to voluntarily leave. Every... read more
