Over thirty years retail experience, I love working with people, Hard | Indiana | Jan 31, 2020
I think giant is a great company to work.
I believe that it is a very good company to work for in which their are opportunities. The store policies in which they treat the people is WONDERFUL!!! We know if you make your customers FEEL GOOD, then a person enjoys returning. I love children , and the fact that you offer fresh fruit to them is a. excellent idea.
ProsFriendly, Clean, Convenience
ConsI feel people SHOULDN'T be made to work on their SABBATH DAY!!!!!!!

long fast pace hours
Management will put you wherever they need you, with little to no training. Are flexible with hours. However have asked personal reasons to what kind of doctor appointments and such.

Toxic work environment
There's a reason I refer to Giant as The Plantation. Your time is completely at their disposal. Death or illness in your immediate family? Don't expect to be allowed any time off, even for the funeral. Employees are simply chewed up and spit out. The union is useless.

Personal Shopper | Philadelphia, PA | Jan 3, 2020
Don’t work there
At least the giant I worked in at grant lost quite a lot of people due to bad management. The managers there are very rude and the company doesn’t do anything about it even though most employees and customers complain.

Meet many interesting individuals, not only co-workers bu customers too,
Flexible working schedules. There are a variety of tasks so no day is the same. Interaction with customers, seems to teach you something new everyday. If you are willing to try new responsibilities they are willing to train you.

Customer Service Associate / Cashier | Lake Ridge, VA | Feb 4, 2019
Friendly and simple job
Management was extremely nice and personable. The hardest job about the job was being required to sell items the company is requiring to sell like donation boxes for the hungry or disabled. I learned to be patient with people and employees which allowed me to do the same to new employees I would train. Management is very understanding and also great teachers.
ProsEmployee discount, flexible hours, easy advancements on the job
ConsCritical on break times, people call out all the time, seniority creates lack of work

Awesome company to learn and grow with
You must be dedicated and love working with the public and coworkers. Giant promotes from within so their employees can make a career for themselves with the company.

Front End Manager | Baltimore, MD | May 2, 2018
Stressful environment
Working here was incredibly stressful. The schedule was fluid. Dealing with our customer base was insane because peoples demands were truly insane. It was the type of situation to where one would leave work truly not feeling well.
ProsGreat Pay and great opportunities for career advancement
Consstressful work environment

ProsEasy job, Vacation times
ConsHours cut, low pay, Poor communication, Constantly rotating managers in and out of the store
