Thread regarding Giant Eagle layoffs

Good News/Bad News for the upcoming Holidays

The good news is Giant Eagle has approved the $15 and $25 Giant Eagle Gift cards for the 26th year in a row. All full time team members will get $25 and all part time team members will get $15. That’s a huge Thank you for all of your hard work this year. Don’t spend it all in one place. That’s funny because you have to spend it at Giant Eagle

Bad news is due to a decrease in business this year Giant Eagle will have to limit all Christmas celebrations in the store to pop/chips and food from the prepared foods dept.

Thank You for making Giant Eagle the success it is…

Butler Refrigerated Meats gives the hourly 1st shift Team Members around $1,200 for a Christmas bonus. The day turn shift works around 5-6 hours/day. The rest of the time is spent taking extended breaks, smoking, hiding in the locker room, or hanging out in the hallway by the receiving office. They are able to beat their labor standards by scanning on an indirect job constantly. The newly appointed operations manager refuses to reprimand his “buddies” even though they should be immediately terminated for stealing time.

Giant Eagle stopped caring about its employees years ago. When they seen companies like Walmart, Aldi’s and Dollar General not caring about its employees and still being profitable they decided to join the crowd.

They approved the Christmas one meanwhile doing away with the gift cards for all major holidays and the ones you got on your birthday and anniversary with the company. I think it was 5-6 years ago they did away with them other gift cards. At least it’s mighty nice of them to think that everyone’s hard work during the holidays and now the pandemic is worth a loaf of bread, a pack of balonga , and a gallon of milk you can get at the store coupled with the measly $150/week check part-timers get. At my old store (I still talk to a lot of my former coworkers), they didn’t get ANY gift cards and not even the usual p-t luck dinner for the holidays for 3-4 years now. The very last time they did it (it was a few months before I quit), they fed us some slop. It was raw potatoes and cheese, and some breakfast slop consisting of spoiled eggs, bacon, and sausage topped with molded and diced bagel croutons. That’s the one thing too I will never miss about GE either is how in order to come up with our holiday pay, they would cut hours even more to save on payroll. They use that savings from those two weeks to pay for the holiday OT they had to pay everyone in the store. They never did this when I first started-it was during the last 4 years I was with the company that they started all of this mess. That’s no holiday pay-that’s your savings from two weeks prior. Pay attention to the schedules right before a holiday and you’ll see them doing it. It’s really noticeable what they’re doing especially if you’re a part-timer. With full-timer’s (who are usually department heads), they really don’t mess with their pay. The only thing they’ll do to them is instead of having them work the usual 48 hours, they get 8 hours cut from their schedules for the next two weeks until the holidays.
