At Giant Eagle, we nourish careers like we nourish families. We are committed to providing all our Team Members with the resources and support to achieve success, both personally and professionally.
We support and nurture strong teams. Together we foster the same respect, welcoming spirit, and positive approach towards each other as we do our guests and communities. That might be why so many Team Members have stayed with us for their entire careers.
If you believe in taking guest service and teamwork to the next level, you belong at Giant Eagle.
There is a lot that goes into successful leadership at Giant Eagle. Leaders here demonstrate a passion for guest happiness, care and respect for their teams, and a commitment to the communities in which we live and work.
Even with our tremendous store footprint in the Great Pittsburgh area, some of our neighbors, unfortunately, do not have access to fresh food and our services because of where they live. To help combat these food deserts, we've invested in a Mobile Grocery Truck that is ran out of our South Fayette Giant Eagle. We have assembled an amazing team to help stock, drive and run it.
This is where you career gets a boost and our teams get stronger. We invest in you becoming an expert in your field.
What do you love most about being a Meat Team Leader?
As cliche as it sounds, I love pretty much everything I do for Giant Eagle. But, if I had to pick one, it is the Master Trainer role. I used to be the guy who was unsure, lacked confidence, and may have been a little lost when it came to thinking about my future. Now I get to help others with these same problems. I've realized that the more people that I help to lead, inspire and develop is a true testament to myself and my leadership. I feel great satisfaction that when the trainees leave, they leave with my name attached and I feel responsible for them.
I truly believe our company is focusing on the right things to remain relevant. We've positioned ourselves to be a top competitor with our recent omnichannel initiatives. In addition to Curbside, guest loyalty, merchandising, Team Member engagement, diversity recruiting/retention, and freshness are all focused that will continue to make our Company great. I am excited to continue to play a role in rolling out future initiatives.
The thing I love most about my job is seeing the smile on our guest's faces when I show them their cake for their special occasion - from simple birthday parties to extravagant weddings - we in the bakery make or break their event. It is our privilege to make their event the most memorable it can be.
What is your job title? And what do you love most about your job?
I'm currently an Assistant Store Leader in Giant Eagle's Store Leader Development Program. What I like most about my job is being able to interact daily with people from all walks of life, helping to ensure that our stores meet the needs of our community, and being able to work with and develop the people on my team.
