Robin Hall

Robin, Sr. Store Leader/Field Merchandiser at GetGo

Warrensville Heights GetGo in Warrensville Heights, OH

Years of Service: 4

What do you want people to know about you?

I love to shop, hang out with family and friends, and I really love to sing.

Describe your GetGo career journey and what was the biggest influence on your success.

I have been with GetGo for 4 years. I started as an Assistant Store Leader. After 2 years, I got promoted to Senior Store leader. I ran the Warrensville Heights GetGo for 2 years. After that, I was asked to go on the New Store Opening team, which I loved because I was able to meet new people all the time. As I was helping to open new GetGo locations, I got an opportunity to meet a lot of different people within Giant Eagle and GetGo. I am a very outgoing person, and I started introducing myself to them and asking questions to see where I wanted to go within the Company. I had aspirations for myself to continue moving up when I was promoted after just 2 years and was getting such great feedback from my boss and my boss’s boss. As I was on the New Store Opening team a corporate Team Member from GetGo offered me the opportunity to be a Field Merchandiser for cigarettes. I decided to accept the opportunity and have been a Field Merchandiser since August 2020. I love it because I still get to meet new people every day.

What advice would you give a new Team Member to be successful in their GetGo career?

I would tell them to stay focused and always be positive.

How do you seek to educate and promote inclusion and diversity in your professional and personal life?

I promote inclusion and diversity by telling others about my success here at GetGo. Some people don’t think there are opportunities to move up but I’m proof that it’s possible. I have always been positive in my work and always do my work to the best of my ability. If I didn’t know the answer to something, I asked questions.

What is something about your own family traditions that you honor and value?

We come together every holiday and have a big feast with all kinds of different foods. Fried ribs are one of my favorites.
