Not the Best for Students
Overnight Stocker (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 10, 2017
Being an employee of Giant Eagle since High School has shown me that I wouldn't want to make a career or anything long term out of it. Although I have been there for almost 6 years now; meeting great people, built good relationships, I still feel as if the job would hold you back if you're truly wanting to advance. Some of the things they do to deter you from advancing is very discouraging, and no matter the amount of years you have worked hard for them, they will still let you go without empathy. Also one of my main issues with the job was how inconsistent the hours would be from week to week. One week you may be working 40 hours then the next you may only have 16. That isn't beneficial to someone who is young, trying to save money, as well as be independent enough to handle their own load of bills. If a young adult can barely survive off of this system then I'm sure an adult with growing children couldn't either. If you want consistent hours, you have to work Full-Time, and once you do that you are basically bonded to that agreement, rewarding you with off days that clash with your availability.
