Senior Service Assistant | McLean, VA | Mar 12, 2021
the management looking to write you up for any mistake you make
the store was run fairly well however the amount of work you've expected to complete in a short period was unrealistic....management had no interest in helping one succeed
Prossteady work

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!!!!!!!

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.

Customer Service Representative | Centreville, VA | Sep 18, 2017
First job
For my first job it was not a bad place to work at. I had okay pay for the time and management was very fair and easy to get along with. I would recommend that to someone that needs a temp job.

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

hard work
Hard working most the time. I learn a little of everything at that job. Co workers were nice to work with and always willing to help. Hardest part was standing on my feet all day. The enjoyable part was mking people smile and them making me smile.

Management Trainee | Upper Marlboro, MD | Aug 19, 2014
Productive workplace
Easy going workplace with a few great people. Management changes periodically, which sometimes does not allow for consistency. Ideal for promotions without college level degree. Job is basically based on experience and moving up within the ranks.

Cashier | Rising Sun, MD | Jul 15, 2014
I have been there so long, i just got used to everything there. i am very comfortable there.
A normal day at work is, cleaning up the aisles. Work on the load, stocking shelves. Some paperwork on the computer. Answering customer questions showing them where something is in the store. Hanging some updates if the price of an item has changed, went up or down, also if it is discontinued.
Prosvery good benefits
Consno chance to move up and do anything

How are the working hours at Giant Food?
Asked Jul 7, 2016
Horrible. They will hire you part-time then schedule you 45-55 hours a week. Never a set schedule, sometimes i would have less than 9 hours between my next shift (close then open). Very over worked. Can never do enough.
Answered May 26, 2021
P/T hours are flexible but limited. Schedule changes weekly. P/T employees are often asked to fill in for employees who call out.
