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.
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
How many more executives can they possibly hire? Are there anymore left for other company’s to employ, or have we taken every last one on the planet? They have honestly gone mad and this place has become amuck, amuck I tell you, with rampant... — read more
Unbelievable! Apparently “Exempt” Getgo salary managers in the state of Indiana were taken advantage of and forced to do non management jobs and are now entitled to overtime. Crazy! And Salary manager for Getgo or Giant Eagle knows this takes place... — read more
I was talking to a friend who had the pleasure (sarcasm) of working a venue that hosted the Giant Eagle & San Francisco team for a Christmas Party. No big deal except that 1) they flew them all across the country to attend when company travel is... — read more
Not layoff related, but the VOG survey is the biggest piece of sh-t in the history of this company. We can’t get certain products in, but yet they still include the metric of “Availability of Products” as a component of the Retail Index. Really? ... — read more
The holiday season has always been stressful here. I am getting older so I have less and less patience for this company, I am less and less motivated, but I would still say that this holiday season is more stressful than ever. What do you think?
Thank you Giant Eagle for making Christmas all about making money for the company and not about family. When they closed on Thanksgiving they made sure the media knew they were closing so team members could spent time with the family. I wonder what... — read more
No longer waking up in the middle of the night with heart palpitations, no longer having panic attacks because of the insane work load and no resources to complete it, no longer fear having my job moved to India, firced to train my replacement and... — read more
Such bad management is nothing new in this company. Ever since I first came to Giant Eagle, there has been poor management here and employees have been complaining about low pay. At one time I thought that company managed this way was not... — read more
The pay is extremely low compared to other retail jobs. Giant Eagle only pays $12 an hour. The company doesn’t offer any type of incentive to work there such as Walmart, Amazon and Target paying for college tuition. The work hours are all over the... — read more
This story was just on the Pittsburgh news. The most amazing part of the story is Giant Eagle immediately sided with the customers and said “The Team Member involved posted a handwritten sign in a store window making INACCURATE claims about treatment... — read more
I talked to someone in Corporate HR and I was told record number of salary Leaders have left the company in the last 6 months. They are leaving faster then they can be replaced. And most likely will not be able to replace. I was told the majority of... — read more
Had an exec tell me to my face that they were giving special treatment to retired Steelers players, OSU coaches in Columbus, etc. he thought this was cool. This was the height of the vaccine scheduling backup. Wonder how much blood is on their... — read more

Bonuses for new hires, higher starting pay. HEY GETGO what about your current employees. Why don’t you do something for them???
How exciting this is. Giant Eagle is so gracious to give its salary team members a .24 cent an hour raise. Thank you so much Giant Eagle. You make working 7 days a week and paid for 5 and working 10 hour days and being paid for 8 all worth it.. Keep... — read more
At my location many employees keep making the same mistakes all the time but management doesn’t seem to care. We’ve all given feedback but what do you do when that feedback always gets ignored? I personally have even reached out to a coworker about... — read more
or could it get even worse? It seems to me that every day here is worse than the previous one.
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
Management gets upset with me all the time because I’m not ki----g myself to get as much work done as they want me too. I’ve been there and done that. Went out of my way on a daily basis and for what? No thanks were given other than “I need you to... — read more

I haven't heard of any, which makes me feel a bit optimistic about my location's future. Just a bit, though.
