Service Associate (Former Employee) – Pottstown, PA – May 20, 2018
Great culture originally. Flexible with scheduling, management was cool. Work was fun. After 2 years I spent my first semester away at college, by the time I came back the culture of the store changed and it became a place I hated going to.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Springfield, PA – May 7, 2018
I began working at Giant entering my senior year of high school to pay for upcoming activities that were involved with senior year. The people that I have worked with for the last five years were friendly and welcoming. I never had a problem with anyone. The hardest part of the job was dealing with angry customers who were disrespectful to you when their issues were unrelated to you. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and building relationships with customers who would come in the store three times a week.
Peapod Shopper (Former Employee) – Coopersburg, PA – April 9, 2018
Fun place to work, you meet a lot of new people. You can listen to music while picking the orders. Everyday it's different, somedays are harder then others, work fluctuates depending on how many people order things that week.
Fun place to work. You can use headphones. Meet lots of new people.
Short breaks. Management was iffy. Lots of lifting.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Philadelphia – March 8, 2018
Don’t get that many hours. Some of the customers were very rude. The employees were not treated with respect. You’re standing for long periods of time and management took away the mats that kept our feet comfortable.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Thorndale, PA – February 28, 2018
The managers seemed to care but at the end of the day they all seemed terrified of corporate and worried that they may get a bad review. The training was not the certified corporate training promised but trial by fire which is fair neither to customer or employee. In my opinion it is the corporations responsibility to see the upcoming trends and make sure each store is supported top to bottom and educate the customers.
PeaPod Driver (Former Employee) – Coopersburg, PA – February 27, 2018
PeaPod part of the store seemed to be held together by bubblegum and rubber bands. Long hours, heavy lifting, very early start times(4am is routine) no consistency in route assignments. Giant is a cheap company to work for also. Gave it almost 2yrs, but had to go elsewhere due to constant back pain.
Part time. Getting tips when making deliveries.
Very early start times, Long work days averaging 10-11 hours per day, Containers of groceries were loaded down and too heavy after the 'system' change, A very physical job. If you have a bad back look elsewhere
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – 71 locust street hazleton pa – February 27, 2018
For being my first job I loved working here if I wasn’t for me moving to New Jersey I think I would still be working there. I learned a lot in this job ñ. This job taught me that the costumer is always right no matter how wrong they may be.
If you don't have a problem with attendance and are capable of dovetailing your tasks you'll fit right in.
CAO/Grocery Associate (Current Employee) – Pottstown, PA – February 23, 2018
For the self-motivated and multitasking capable you will find yourself with more than enough to do as most departments seem to be understaffed or experience daily call-outs. There is a reliable core of managers and leads to counter this, but full-time/part-time associates take the brunt of the daily legwork.
Holiday meal spreads + daily snack spread, Easy for those accustomed to retail duties and customer service..
Dept supervisors take draconian punitive measures against dept associates, Fulltime employees experience hour cuts to minimize budget impact.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Lewisburg, PA – January 23, 2018
A typical work day was being a cashier working to help customers and handling their cash and checks, basically doing the job that needed to be done. Like cleaning the work area or putting bags back on the racks, making sure everything was where it was suppose to be.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Lewisburg, PA – January 17, 2018
The job is very rewarding when it comes to interacting with the people. However, the schedule is a little bit of a conflict. I would prefer more hours, and I have only been receiving a max of 26 hours. The pay is definitely worth the amount of work you are expected to complete, but more hours would be a big benefit.
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – January 6, 2018
Depending on the shift- day, evening of overnight, you can start anywhere from 600 to 2200. Giant is almost always very busy, and the few times it is not, there is always something to do. Giant cross trains people who are interested and welcomes diversity- age, culture, ethnicity. Sometimes you don't always work the same shift every week, but this also does prevent boredom and you meet a lot of people that way.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Lansdowne, PA – January 5, 2018
I love my job at giant because of the customers. There are so many types of people from many other states that shop there, and that just makes my job even more enjoyable because I get to meet them and give them our excellent customer service.
