Awful place to work for. I applied to be a pharmacist they put me in the sea food after one week I became ill and called out sick for two days. When I got back they fired me telling me I had unexcused absences. I guess next time that happens I’ll just go cough on the food if that’s what they want. Especially during these troubling times to fire somebody because I was not feeling well. I don’t think that’s right whatsoever. Giant is a horrible place to work for. $10 starting pay. Orientation is the biggest joke. I’ve seen in my life. Poorly run poorly organized company. Stay away from this place. They try to force you to join a union which is a joke as well.
Too many to list
This company has so many hours available for overnight stockers that it’s ridiculous! If you sign up to be a part time worker then you definitely will be “forced” to work a 40 hour week load. I don’t recommend even the homeless working for this company. This place is completely unprofessional, especially the areas in Ashburn, Va. They just make things look nice but On the inside of things , it’s trashy.
Discounts on grocery items
Overworked, talked down on, 15 min breaks for a 8 hour shift.
A typical week was preparing meat for retail sale. Ilearned to be a meat manager.Management was experienced.Workplace was professional. The hardest part of the job was working in the cold.Enjoyable part was the benefits
Working in the cold
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Every work experience is unique. Tell us about yours. Rate your employer.
Giant started out as a part time job and because I cared too much I got into working too many hours and eventually stayed there for too long. it is a good starting job but that is all. They ask a lot from you and don't give much.
Benefits and after 5 years you get the X plan and it is great.
They ask too much from you
I enjoyed working with customers at Giant but the management was not really supportive. I would go and help with bagging and some trash. It was hard to go outside in the weather though.
Loved customers and co-workers
Short hours and unsupportive line management
It’s a Retail Company a very fast face environment. Management require to work long hours and mandatory weekends. Management shifts needed to do closing schedule.
Party company for a good job done.
Luck of employee and after midnight shifts.
Upon arrival,I would check with supervisor to get instructions as to the specific duties to accomplish. Then carry out those duties, while service to customers, is always a priority. While employed at Giant, I met lots of people from many backgrounds and learning to work as a team. Management was great always there to work out difficult or unusual situations. Very fair and knowledgable. Great professional workplace, Always work to stay busy never boring, and meeting new people sometimes becoming lifelong friends, was my favorite part of the job.
My time at Giant Foods wasn't very exciting or rewarding. I found myself rather secluded from most of the employees with a management that never seemed to be in a good mood. The hardest part about working there was in fact having to deal with the management. They would at many times talk in very condescending tones. The best part of the job was my co-workers, who were all hard working young men and women who did there best despite the not so great management.
