Or at least, could their numbers be reduced? Unfortunately, either this company doesn’t care at all about the number of people losing their jobs or it doesn’t have any acceptable solution to at least reduce the number of layoffs. Basically, the... — read more
Anyone have any insight on upcoming corporate, HR or recruiting layoffs or restructuring?
I left a year ago and I’m currently happily employed. I ran into my older manager and he asked if I or anyone I knew needed a job. I politely declined and told him most of the people I know are already employed. When I was there staffing seemed to be... — read more
Is it normal for someone to cut the hours from 40 to 14 in one week? I thought something like this could only happen to me, but now I see that there were more people to whom it happened. I don't intend to stay here for a minute longer than I have... — read more
Some say it’s stuck in the 90s and I totally agree. I don't understand why there is so little will to do something so that it would no longer be stuck in the past? Maybe they don’t have a vision or they don’t have the competence? Admittedly, maybe... — read more
I don't think I'll need a layoff at all because I hope to give notice next week. I thought the situation would start to improve, as the pandemic situation gets more under control, but no. There is no change for the better for the employees. I have... — read more
All the posts that I read are about current/former employees who hate working at GE. Honestly is there anyone besides myself who still enjoys it? Call me a glutton for punishment if you want, but I enjoy the hard work, it makes me feel like I’ve... — read more
For those not in the know, the company has slashed retail wages to pre-pandemic lows! However, profit remains at an all time high and corporate job openings have flooded workday while greed has settled in. Stores are required to eliminate upwards of... — read more
How crazy is that. Walmart wants to show its employees how much they appreciate them by closing its stores on a Holiday.. Who thinks Giant Eagle will follow and close its stores or will greed get the best of them…. We all know what the answers is.
I don't know what happened in the last year but my store has turned into a huge mess. Things that used to be wrapped up within an hour now take two, new hires are not even pretending to work or trying to learn anything, and most of them are gone... — read more
Judging from the posts here, I am in the minority but I still like working here. Maybe it's my location, maybe it's the people I work with, but I'm happy. I visit here to see if there are any layoffs or closings on the horizon and it breaks my heart... — read more
I hate how my manager talks out of both sides of her mouth. She’s always talking sweet to employees to their face, but the minute they are out of ear shot all she does is complain about what a “terrible” employee so and so is, and how such and such... — read more
Just saw this post from Giant Eagle. WTF? Open an office in India. I thought San Francisco was bad enough. Watch the video. I wanted to throw up. This company is losing great people and crapping on everyone else…but hey let’s open an office in... — read more
GE is a truly horrible employer. Loyalty means absolutely nothing to this cr---y company. Management finds ways to mess with their employees that eventually forces them to leave. I’ve taken over a year of being screwed around with and I finally... — read more
So employees will need to prove they are vaccinated if they don’t want to wear a mask but customers are on the honor system.. Way to go Giant Eagle.
Giant Iggle is making a major expansion in Northeast Ohio. All Dave's, Beuhler's and unbuilt Meijer stores are being acquired by the Big Bird. This will greatly stop the Meijer attempt at shaking up the Northeast Ohio supermarket plate. Giant Eagle... — read more
It's been four years since I was laid off but that turned out to be one of the best things to happen to me. When I remember the work atmosphere and culture I escaped...I know I dodged a bullet. Are things still as bad as they used to be? Or has... — read more
Employees at central fill (central pharmacy) are repeatedly injured by equipment that has little to no safety guards. This has resulted into at least one bone fracture and countless other injuries. The caveat being that management encourages workers... — read more
Why to go Giant Eagle.... Proud to have you as our neighbor
Giant Eagle isn’t the only company I’ve worked for, but it’s certainly special in its attitude toward employees. Also, I have heard all kinds of stories from friends who work in other companies, but that the superiors are shouting and venting their... — read more
Folk's you read it here. Meijer's is invading Giant Eagles stronghold territory. More Meijer's stores are being built. They will seriously take a piece of the pie from the Get -go's ,the g.e banners..and the indepedent banners including... — read more
Did anybody else notice that managers have gone from bad to worse in the past ten months? It feels like they're taking advantage of the situation since they know the economy is in the c-apper and none of us would dare leave right now, no matter how... — read more
So how’d it go? Did GE meet its goal and become a 20BN a year company? Laughing. Out. Loud.
So another Vice President is leaving the company after a short tenure. I have to ask the question. Is Daddy’s daughter that hard to work for?
When I first came to this company I thought I would get enough time and training to learn to do my job well. However, none of that. I barely fit into the new work environment because I didn’t have enough experience. When I think about my first few... — read more
I honestly think they don’t want to hire new employees. I truly believe they are trying to save money by keeping the staffing levels low and getting more work out of the current employees. Just think about it. They took the hiring jobs away from the... — read more
It’s been almost a year since I left Giant Eagle. I just wanted to wish my friends and former coworkers a great holiday season and an even better year to come. Don’t let the politics of the company weigh you down. Take the time in the following weeks... — read more
Yep.. $25 for full time team members and $15 for part time team members. Isn’t that pathetic? That’s the best Giant Eagle can do for it’s team members at Christmas. They have been doing this same two denomination since 1996.. — read more
I really hope Giant Eagle made a ton of money by staying open on Thanksgiving. And I mean a ton. I really do. I hope Giant Eagle made so much money they are still counting the money a week later. Hopefully the money Giant Eagle made on Thanksgiving ... — read more
Really Giant Eagle?? As the Pandemic worsens its so important to your company to make sure you are open for business on Thanksgiving? I truly wonder if the executives who made this decision can honestly look at themselves in the mirror each day... — read more
Nobody’s going to discuss the MAJOR Teamsters 507 contract negotiations that are failing in talks as we speak?? Not even one mention about the strike notice effecting all the Ohio stores in a dramatic way just before the holidays? Oh, that’s... — read more
What is going on with Giant Eagle? They finally give its employees a chance to make some money and they stop the program after the first payout. What is wrong? Is it true the bonus program paid out more money then the company was willing to pay out... — read more
That is really strange.. If the reason Giant Eagle is opening on Thanksgiving is to "Serve the community" why are the Getgo's staying closed? Maybe Giant Eagle only wants to serve half the community.
The new perks program is horrible. Typical giant eagle taking money away from customers and acting like it's a good thing. Supposed to be exciting for team members???? Sure. Customers already hate it.
Is it true employees who have to work on Thanksgiving will be receiving T-Shirts to wear that say "We Ain't Afraid Of No Virus"? And is it true for the 25th consecutive year Giant Eagle will again be passing out $15 Giant Eagle gift cards for all of... — read more
Knowing we are going to be open for Thanksgiving comes as no surprise to most of us. A friend of mine is also required to work Thanksgiving with her company, but they are doing half shifts. That way everyone has to work yet still have time to spend... — read more
People are talking about possible layoffs next month, any truth to it?
Unbelievable! Giant Eagle has announced it will stay open on Thanksgiving Day. Every other major retailer has announced they will not open on Thanksgiving Day for the safety of its employees and for the current pandemic.. Not Giant Eagle because they... — read more
At my store, two managers walked out within a week of each other. Considering the situation with this virus and how it's affecting the economy, it makes no sense to me they'd chose to simply walk away from a decent job right now. Do they know... — read more
