Leadership Development Programs

Giant Eagle has two formal training programs to develop effective leaders for frequent growth opportunities within our stores.

These include:

Team Leader Development Program
This 9 to 12-week program provides hands-on exposure to various departments within a Giant Eagle store. Team Members work closely with Master Trainers and receive formal feedback to evaluate progress. Our instructors and mentors provide the knowledge, tools and resources to position new Team Leaders for success in leading their own specific departments.

Being a Leader at Giant Eagle is much more than just knowing how to effectively manage a department. We do not define leadership around title or power. Rather, we define leadership around the way we value and respect the dignity and well-being of every person. To us, leadership requires us to have the skills, ability and willingness to:

  • Communicate clearly
  • Coach and develop
  • Seek and provide feedback
  • Motivate ourselves and our teams
  • Hold ourselves and each other accountable
  • What are the ingredients of a great leader?
