Thread regarding Giant Eagle layoffs

Christmas Bonuses Based On Tenure With Company NO WAY! IS THIS TRUE????????????

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..

Yes, we might not be entitled to one, but don’t scrimp on them like it’s going to bankrupt the company or something. Is that what the company really thinks their employees are worth now? A one time $25 or $15 bonus, lol? That’s a slap in the face right there and not to mention the fact that they already paid us like garbage (with the exception of the ones that unfortunately made a too long of a career with a horrible company). Then with new employees, they’re lucky to even get 20-25 hours a week and by the time they take out all the taxes and union dues, you’re lucky to get $125/week. Full time is virtually nonexistent except for those that’s been with the company for 15+ years. Is $15/$25 bonuses really worth it? At my new job, I surpassed that and made over $5,000 in bonuses after leaving Giant Eagle. This year, I’m expecting a $10,000 one.

"Giant Eagle isn’t going down hill it’s already at the bottom of the hill when it comes to how a company is run."

It has been since the 80s. The fact that it stays in business is a mystery to me. The PA/OH markets are so cost-conscious and GE is overpriced. The stores are always the worst run in any market. And yet they are still open. How?

Giant Eagle isn’t going down hill it’s already at the bottom of the hill when it comes to how a company is run. Don’t be fooled and start thinking Giant Eagle is in financial trouble. They are doing extremely well. The first quarter of this fiscal year was very good to Giant Eagle. They want you to believe they are having financial troubles because that is good business. If a company does well financially then the employees would expect to get paid better. Keeping wages low is what has shaped Giant Eagle over the last 30 plus years. Just look at all of the current job openings the company currently has. At last check it was over 4,000 positions. Think about that. If you currently work in the stores you must have noticed the people Giant Eagle have been hiring lately. It seems like as long as they have a pulse they get hired. And most of those new hires only last about a month or less. The new employees who do last usually get stressed out over the amount of work they have to do for a minimum wage. Think about that. Getting stressed out while working in a grocery store. You read a lot about Amazon underpaying it’s employees while making large profits. It seems Giant Eagle is doing the same thing.

Just a poorly run company by a family who has fooled the Pittsburgh/Cleveland/Columbus area for years.

If you think that’s unfair, inquire about the $120,000 or more that talon drivers make. Drivers routinely get paid 4-8 hours per day for beating their trip times. These clowns make as much or more than some owner operators.

Giant Eagle has been going downhill. They used to give out meal tickets or bonuses for birthdays, doing good work, and all major holidays. They did away with most of it and now you only get one for Christmas and that’s it. It’s to save them money. I also love how right before holidays (usually two weeks before one), they severely cut hours to save on payroll so they could have that saved money to pay us that holiday pay for that week. They never used to do this when I first started with the company. I think they started around year number 3 with the company. This is why I think the company is not doing so well at all if they have to resort to doing all of this. They also lost $3 billion dollars in value from the time I started with the company in 2011 until I left in 2019, closed at least 20 stores since I’ve worked with them in that short time period, and laid off a lot of people from corporate. I’ll give Giant Eagle probably about another 5 years or so before they either go bust or get bought out by someone.

Maybe you would like ZERO. Which is what I get every year. Your not entitled to a bonus.
