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 has probably missed holidays, birthdays and family gatherings with her family to help Giant Eagle/Getgo make money and she gets brutally as----ted. What is even sadder is the only video camera in the store to capture the brutal as----t on the 67 year old female employee is partial blocked by a box. Doesn’t Giant Eagle have a Loss Prevention department that checks on the cameras. Is the Loss Prevention department to busy doing other things for the company that the safety of its employees doesn’t matter. According to the story the 67 year old female Getgo employee has bruises all over her body and is dealing with headaches as well. And the 67 year old female employee had her hair ripped out. Apparently the 67 year old female employee is afraid to go back to work. I don’t blame her. Who wants to work in that kind of environment.

Absolutely disgusting this happened to her! Hopefully she gets a good lawyer cuz Giant Eagle will say it's her fault!!
If Getgo cared about its employees then that would cost money. And the more money it spends on employees the less money it has to hire another Vice President.
GetGo never really had security-only Giant Eagle’s did. Of all the GetGo’s in my city, I think only one had any kind of security and it was because the gas station was straight up in the hood. It was on Buckeye Road in Cleveland which eventually shuttered. That particular one was in such a bad neighborhood that it was the ONLY ONE that had bulletproof windows all on the counters, that had to lock its doors at 8pm and have folks go to a window after that time and speak to the attendant through a microphone, etc. Other GetGo’s didn’t have all of that. A year or two before I quit Giant Eagle though, I’ve been noticing too that they’re even cutting down on or getting rid of security even in the stores themselves-not just at the gas stations. It’s gotten worse with security since I left.
She got attacked because Getgo doesn’t make the safety of its employees a number one priority. It’s more concerned with making money
The District Leaders of Getgo would never get the same job in another company. Each one of them is what’s called a “Diversity” hire. They were hired or promoted based on how good it would look in the public eye.
I would never let my kid work at a Getgo. Not safe at all
In most of the Getgo’s employees are made to work alone. They have to open the store alone and close the store alone. The District Leaders save hours so they can give more hours to the bigger stores. So I’m surprised the attack wasn’t worse
I seen the story as well. It said they are still looking for the attackers. I would think if they turn themselves in Giant Eagle wouldn’t mind given them a $25 gift
