7th Street NW-Front End Clerk and Dairy (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 22, 2017
The typical day at work consisted of getting carts, helping customers. I learned how to stock items. The management was decent. The workplace culture was fair. The hardest part of the job was working in the warm weather. The most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers.
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – April 19, 2017
I was hired as a cashier when i was 17 at a very low rate of 7.60 an hour. When i turned 18 i was "promoted" to front desk. I was doing the same work as the assistant managers still only being paid 7.60 while they were paid 14-16 an hour. As a front desk employee you are given a set of keys that are used to assist customers and cashiers when necessary. after i quickly learned everything about front desk they found reasons to take away my keys but still expected me to do all of the work without them. The management was terrible and I was actually afraid of a majority of my managers. you are only given 1 day off a week and the hours are horrible.
Customer Service Representative/Cashier (Former Employee) – Norristown, PA – April 18, 2017
A beneficial job but not enough hours to go around to each employee, the company hires but cannot perform for the amount of people needing work. They change the schedule without notifying the employees. Take a picture of your posted schedule.
Fill and deliver prescription orders, maintain computerized inventory, conduct monthly medication audits, communicate with pharmacy staff and customers on daily basis. Educate patient about medication.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Maryland – April 9, 2017
It was productive at certain times, like 12 p.m. because that was lunch time for people. On holidays the store was busy, but when things were slow, it was really slow. When the store is slow I'd usually walk around the store and organize shelves.
Carpenter (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – February 26, 2017
Working for Giant was a fun experience. You work non stop and is never told to take a break. You have to come to work prepared because you never know the task at hand. Sometimes tools are limited and you work with what you have but overall you learn how to get the job done.
