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
Topics regarding layoffs at Giant Eagle
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?
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 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
People are talking about possible layoffs next month, any truth to it?
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.
Like it was previously mentioned, now that the Cityview Giant Eagle in Garfield Heights OH is “temporarily” closing for a Curbside pickup location, it will NEVER reopen! They are shipping out product that has absolutely NO expiration date... — 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
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
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
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
What’s next on the laundry list of newly promoted/hired Vice Presidents? We attend meetings all the time where operations keeps telling us to NOT get wrapped up in all the VP’s we keep hiring and focus on “running great stores”. How can we “run great... — read more
Does anyone know if Giant Eagle will be following other companies and giving its employees paid time off to vote this year?
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
Well I was just notified when I came into work that someone tested positive for COVID-19 at the store I work at and all employees have to get a temperature test before working for a few weeks. Mind you, they did not close the store for sanitation and... — read more
Unleavable.. Giant Eagle made sure every news outlet was aware of the bonus money they would be paying out to it's employees and the day before checks are to be issued a large portion of employees are finding out the bonus money will not be in May... — read more
What is going on in Merchandising? Why are all these people leaving?
Was founders day cancelled? Our store did absolutely nothing. No one from Corporate showed up. No shirts etc etc.... I’m confused. Will it be rescheduled?
Why does this not surprise me. That shows you the type of company Giant Eagle is..
Posts are getting pulled from here. Do they own this site?
Can anyone explain, why exactly, the company has just spent nearly 4m dollars developing this “world class tech annex” to draw Silicon Valley gurus to Giant Eagle yet announce the closing of multiple corporate office buildings indefinitely?... — read more
Your local neighborhood giant eagle both as a pharmacy chain and a distributor (for those who don’t know, the pharmacy side warehouses d–gs), turned a blind eye to massive o—id pr-scrip-ions for years.
How come the Silent Protest that store employees are being told to participate in is on a Saturday and not being held during the week so the employees working at the corporate office can participate in it. And why not hold during the middle of the... — read more
Hearing rumblings that a lay-off is happening at corporate. Confusing with all the money GE is making right now. I’m sure no VPs will be let go.
So Giant Eagle/Getgo wanted to thank it's employees for working during the Coronavirus Pandemic by giving them hourly raises and now they cut the employees hours so they don't make any extra money during the month of April. Great Company to work for... — read more
And typical Giant Eagle They won't say which store it was because it would hurt business at a time when they are making money... You owe it to the public to say what store it was GIANT EAGLE. Very poorly run company
I’m a selector at one of the warehouses. We know of two guys on our shift that have been quarantined. The manager isn’t doing anything about it. He’s more worried about sending cases out. I can’t believe that We are sending cases out that these guys... — read more
I have to say Giant Eagle's response to its "Team Members" has been horrible. They are yet to do anything for the Team Members working in the stores. If you ask about a Team Member getting sick from the virus and having to miss work they are told... — read more
I used to work for GE in Cleveland in a leadership role several years ago and have close contacts still. 1) Giant eagle has bought Shur Save/IGA in Bloomfield 2) 2-3 stores will be closing in Pittsburgh, while keeping the pharmacies open. — read more
At a meeting at corporate, Laura said that we "have more cubicles than parking spaces"......
Office Purge Day announced to clean desks and cubicles, get rid of extra office supplies. Hmmmm.
Is Giant Eagle losing money? If yes, how come? How is this even possible, such a big chain with a ton of management from top schools.
We are quickly approaching the anniversary of the MASSIVE corporate layoff event where police were called, folks unknowingly shut out, peoples lives changed forever, etc. How do I know this you ask? Well, it’s simple quite frankly: 1) It happens... — read more
After over 20 years of service to Giant Eagle, I am ready to move on. I’m looking into completely new opportunities and career fields and am super excited for where my life is going to take me. I’m definitely leaning towards being my own boss and... — read more
