Keith, GoGetter

Keith, GoGetter & U.S. Navy Veteran

How did you come to work for GetGo?

In 2006, I left Federal Service as an IT Specialist GS-12. I decided I wanted to pursue a less stressful work life, but I wanted to remain in customer service. I was hired by Gas America, a convenience store chain that was later purchased by Speedway. I took a 3 year break and worked for Wal-Mart, only to realize that I really enjoyed and missed the convenience store environment. Eventually, I was hired by Ricker's which was later acquired by Giant Eagle.

I'm currently a GoGetter at our 151st Street GetGo location in Carmel, IN. I truly enjoy the opportunity to provide our guests with exceptional service, which includes everything from processing checkouts, cleaning the store and preparing their next meal. I also enjoy seeing people as repeat customers.

Can you describe your military career?

I served in the United States Navy from 1984 until my release from reserve obligations in 1993. I am a Desert Storm Veteran. After that, I went to work for the Federal Government until 2006.  While in the Navy, my primary duty was Disbursing Clerk, which means I maintained Officer and Enlisted payroll accounts. At that time, all payroll accounts were computed and recorded by hand. My other primary duty was to serve as the ship's Search and Rescue (SAR) Swimmer during battle drills or when providing aid to a vessel in distress. My other duties included Helmsmen, Small Boat Coxin, Armed Escorts, Fire Team Member and much more.

What three words would you use to describe GetGo?

Clean. Freshness. Convenience.

A "fun fact" about Keith:

While I dislike televised sports, I adore going to any game with a crowd of fans.

Terry, Warehouse Selector

What made you think of Giant Eagle as a possible place of employment?

HBC Service Co. offers great benefits and income.

Why have you chosen to stay with Giant Eagle?

I enjoy working together with my fellow Team Members.

Can you describe your military career? 

I was in the Navy for three years as a Machinist. My primary duty was knowing every system on my submarine. My main responsibility was driving the submarine, and I was on board the U.S.S. Los Angeles.

How has Giant Eagle supported you in the past?

Giant Eagle has supported me financially. By working for this Company for 20 years, I was finally able to buy my own house, instead of renting and that feels wonderful!

Out of the newly refreshed Core Values (Respect All, Think Team, See It Own It, Work Smart, Live Well and Do Right), which Core Value resonates with you the most? Why?

I believe in Work Smart because I believe in working smarter, not harder. I’ve always put forth the extra effort to get things done quickly and safely.

A "fun fact" about Terry:

I strongly believe in kindness and respect for others.
