Topics regarding layoffs at Giant Eagle
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!
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
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?
