How nice. Giant Eagle is giving 10 people $10,000 in perks but they don’t even pay a living wage to its store employees. You know the company is sad when the customers come before the employees
I finally got my opportunity of a lifetime, moving up from part-time employee to full-time employee assistant manager. I was so excited, I had a really good interview however when I got the offer back I was disappointed. It would only be a raise of... — read more
While it's great that the new CEO is someone who has worked for the company his entire life, why won't he change the toxic leadership in HR? And he knows how bad they are because multiple people have gone to him to tell him. I realize that the... — read more
I recently shopped at Giant Eagle and earned what would be .20 cents off per gallon of gas. I decided to use my fuel perks at Getgo and I saved $3.60 off my total. I thought that was pretty good until I spoke with my co-worker. My co-worker had me... — read more
On Saturday Dec 23 our family was holding our Christmas celebration. At noon I realized I still needed 2 items. Knowing the day before Christmas Eve is the busiest shopping day at a grocery store I was very hesitant about running to Giant Eagle for... — read more
Why do higher ups, Getgo district leaders etc visit stores during the Christmas holidays and they always say “I hope you get some time off during the holiday”. Are they that stupid not to realize I’ll be working Christmas Eve. I’ll be doing a shift... — read more
I recently seen two different Giant Eagle commercials. One for Giant Eagle and one for Getgo. The Getgo commercial showed an employee named Santa and having a great time greeting customers. The Giant Eagle commercial showed two Giant Eagle employees... — read more
Giant Eagle (back to the days of david) was built off of the backs of some very hard working people who many of times were creative and got things done. They always got a lot done with small teams and while rarely leading the industry with ideas, was... — read more
I've been hearing too many rumors of more cuts coming our way for it to be ignored. Be smart and prepare as best as you can (spruce up your resume, start networking, minimize your spending...) I truly hope I'm wrong about this, but it's still better... — read more
Hi there! Is anyone aware of the cutoff date for deciding on COBRA and the expiration of our benefits?
I spent several decades working for Giant Eagle. I loved my job at Giant Eagle. I was extremely successful at Giant Eagle. I made well into the six figures at Giant Eagle. I was one of the best at Giant Eagle. I dedicated my life to Giant Eagle. I... — read more
Looks like Laura Carrot's hubby is not going to make as much money on Alpha II as he used to. https://www.bizjournals.com/pittsburgh/news/2023/10/18/ridc-ohara-giant-eagle-echo-realty.html
Did I read in another comment that CPO JL is about to leave? Can't be soon enough. What she and her bestie from Canada (or is it Australia?) has done is disgusting. Working in HR is not the same anymore and it's sad. Just hoping I can wait it out... — read more
How did everyone feel about the comment in the meeting today about the return to office / hybrid plan to a new corporate office that doesn't exist yet?
I hope morale improves with todays announcement from the CIO.
Starting to see LinkedIn posts about Hatch Labs team members being laid off. Stay safe out there, folks.
No running water at the freedom pa food manufacturing facility for more than a week now. Bathrooms closed and porto potty’s in the parking lot as we speak and it’s absolutely disgusting. Employees are furious over working conditions and safety as... — read more
Any news or updates?
Another person left the L&D team, no I mean they left the bully in L&D. ANOTHER PERSON left...the same L&D VP. According to my count, that's at least 6 people who directly reported to that person who left. Will anything ever be... — read more
Heck no. It is nothing more then a smoke screen. Even with the “So Called” price drops the prices are still higher at Giant Eagle. If you haven’t tried a competitor I recommend you do. You will be amazed at the price difference.
Watch the news...
I see someone posted about this below, but as someone who does NOT work for the company (rather another Pgh based company on this site) thought I'd jump over here to ask what's up with your prices? I always knew Giant Eagle wasn't cheap but I can't... — read more
Any predictions for this year... what's the state of things, does anyone know what could happen... thanks in advance.
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
