Meat and Seafood

We take our Meat and Seafood seriously at Giant Eagle and our customers appreciate that. Our customers know that they can trust us to have fresh-cut, butcher-shop quality meat and fresh seafood that is handled for optimal flavor and product safety. We are seeking talented Team Members who share our passion, want to get ahead by mastering valuable skills and take pride in building relationships with our customers.

Meat and Seafood Team Members at Giant Eagle are fully educated in every product we sell, particularly any pre-prepared items that could contain possible allergens. Team Members are cross-trained between meat and seafood and can enter into an apprentice program to become a Journeyman Meat Cutter in one of our stores. It’s an outstanding opportunity to learn a valuable skill – and a lost art.
