Shocked no one has started a thread on the new leader. Don’t have any scoop, but know someone out there does.
Who is responsible for pricing at Giant Eagle? I understand costs have gone up but GE is over priced on everything! I can't defend the pricing when customers comment & I will not longer be shopping here. The levels that they are price gouging is... — read more
There is a narcissistic bully who leads L&D. Just look at ALL of the people who left the dept to get away from her.
Or at least, so far I haven't heard any rational explanation why this place needs such an excessive number of VPs. Can anyone give such an explanation?
Does anyone who works at Giant Eagle or Getgo know if they are price gouging? I can’t believe how high prices are at Giant Eagle and Getgo. All of the other food retailers haven’t raised prices like Giant Eagle or Getgo has. Prices are so much more... — read more
Starting to hear rumors. And there are a bunch of weird meetings scheduled this week. Does anyone have any info?
Reports from inside corporate state that morale is at its lowest point ever. The rise of Indian staffing, the random firing of long term local employees, completely misguided technology direction, delusions of grandeur in the executive team. Leave... — read more
My friends, I voluntarily left GE in 2019 after 22 years of service. I’m in my early 40’s and I honestly have to tell you it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I’m so much happier, my stress is so much lower, my paycheck so much higher, etc. I truly... — read more
Reports that the lovely, diverse hires are still chopping heads locally and shipping jobs to India. Anyone have contacts at local news outlets? This is so fu----g scummy
What a shame. Giant Eagle/Getgo is so desperate to fill salary leader positions they are paying new hire more money then what current and long time salary employees are being paid. How horrible that is. The company once again treats the current and... — read more
It's interesting that the CPO who heads up HR is someone who clearly has favorites when that's the dept and the leader who should be the one to model fair practices. I guess that doesn't apply to the CPO. Maybe that's because the CPO won't be here... — read more
Buyouts were just a way to get rid of the long tenured (read: loyal) people who are over the age of 40+ so they can hire more people in India for a lower wage.
Great news if your a salary employee for Giant Eagle. The 2022 weekly raises have been approved. That’s right. APPROVED. It was a tough battle but once again the $9.60 (.24cent) weekly raises are about to become reality. It was definitely a hard... — read more
Did anyone get on the call yesterday about the buyouts and hear that if they don't get enough people to take the buyout, there will be layoffs?
I understand why they want a cheaper workforce. What is not quite clear is how they think that a cheaper workforce will fix the problems that this company has? I wouldn't want to disparage anyone or sound rude, but I think that such decisions can... — read more
If this leadership had any long term plans, the atmosphere here would be very different. Maybe I'm wrong, but they seem to have absolutely no vision for this company? Sometimes I think that we, the employees, care more about the future of the... — read more
Buyouts to be announced tomorrow. Let's hear your thoughts/comments below...
Ok.. I’m I the only one who has noticed that Giant Eagle and Getgo are price gouging. Prices at both places are well above the competition. Now I know why the parking lots at Giant Eagle and Getgo are empty. And all gas stations are price gouging... — read more
It’s been reported several US companies are giving its employees inflation bonuses to help with the rising cost of items of the last few months. Does anyone know if Giant Eagle is considering do this for employees?
https://www.thelayoff.com/t/1i93jyAY I know the CTO brought a lot of his old Kroger buddies over to GE.
Okay, give to to me straight. Two departures within mere weeks of each other. Both leaving for “personal reasons”? What’s up?
Why, oh why would an anonymous site go through and delete posts that deal with people being fired, forced to train their Indian replacements in order to get severance, and then be shown the door. It's quite apparent that companies can have posts... — read more
Does anyone know if Giant Eagle corporate employees are currently back working in the office or are they still working from home? I currently work in a retail location as a salary leader and the price of gas is ki----g me. If corporate employees are... — read more
And who is the first to learn about it? I'm new (less than a year) so I don't know how the process works. However, several managers left my store in the last month which has me worried that they might have known something before the rest of us. Is... — read more
Is there any truth to the rumor Getgo employees are looking to unionize? I’ve been told a group of employees are in talks with union representatives.
What I was experiencing here coming from the manager was a bunch of nonsense. Are these people even aware of where they work and what condition this company is in? With their behavior and horrible treatment of employees, they may briefly satisfy... — read more
I gave myself a deadline to leave in the next two months. Not only am I wasting my time here, I’m jeopardizing my health here.
I don’t know what's worse, working while terribly understaffed, or the humiliation caused by the fact that Giant Eagle doesn’t even recognize that we’re understaffed all while relentlessly squeezing us to exhaustion!? They want us to work more... — read more
Just when I thought Giant Eagle couldn't get ANY lower, it appears that they have an agreement put in place to hire migrants, immigrants, who can barely say two whole sentences in English and this is at store level!!! Thank you corporations of... — read more
I made the biggest mistake when I applied here. I knew even then that this was far from an ideal company, but I really couldn't believe that the employees here were so devalued. Not only am I very underpaid in terms of workload, but the company... — read more
Why hasn't this been reported to the local news? These are jobs that should be filled by local folks. I thought Giant Eagle was about being a "good neighbor" but it's all about making the most money possible and to he-l with all the peons who they... — read more
You have no reason to still be working at Giant Eagle. Once I decided to leave, it took me all of two weeks to find a new and better job! It's good out there right now. It's really good. I know many may be scared to leave but you have no reason! At... — read more
That’s right! If you are a salary leader for Getgo or Wetgo you need to quit your job and re-apply for you position. The reason you need to do this is all new salary leaders who are currently being hired are receiving between $7,000 and $10,000 more... — read more
I left about 3 months ago, and keep in touch with old coworkers. It seems like people are jumping ship, but it could just be the folks I know. Can anyone confirm more or less departures? Thanks
The local news just had a story with video about a 67 year old female Getgo employee who was attacked while working at a local Pittsburgh Getgo. How sad is that. The women is probably making a little over minimum wage and while working for Getgo she... — read more
Since it is very clear to me that employees are the ones who suffer because of bad decisions and bad management, I wonder how far we are from significant cuts? Does anyone have any info?
This company should be ashamed of it self. The parking lots at the Getgo weren’t even cleared of snow during or after the storm. Customers had to navigate 6 inches of snow to pump gas or walk into the store. The company will hire 30 + Vice Presidents... — read more
Because GE can't staff or retain employees, the CTO, who happens to live out of state, has mandated corporate employees take retail shifts to help lighten the load...good sign for the company, right? Hahaha
