    I worked at Giant Eagle

    Pros

    I worked with some wonderful people. Customer service was incredibly important to company culture, and I loved the HR department's training workshops every employee had to take throughout their time at the company.

    Cons

    I did not move throughout the company and people who had spent less time with the company got opportunities I never was spoken to about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to give everyone a fair chance with regard to new opportunities within departments and training, assuming several people are qualified.
