Ever wonder what happens to all the food in the world that doesn't get bought or even eaten? That's a big question, and one I don't really have an answer for. But what I do know is that American supermarket chain Giant Eagle is doing their part to make sure that lost and forgotten food gets used for good.
Giant Eagle was founded in Pittsburgh in 1931. They now have stores all over the northeastern part of the United States, in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana and Maryland.
They've made it their mission to ingrain themselves deeply within the communities they serve. That means creating economic growth opportunities for people as well as creating a culture of giving back and helping those in need.
Giant Eagle is very much into community enrichment. It is clear that they understand that when they have the opportunity to pitch in and improve a community, their own little community will become better.
They sponsor a slew of charitable events in their communities, events which Giant Eagle employees are always volunteering at. Areas they focus on in their communities are hunger relief, general health and wellness, education, and, of course, community enrichment.
The community enrichment aspect is pitching in with things such as libraries, gardens, zoos, science centers and anything in a community that increases the quality of life for all.
Giant Eagle looks to recruit people in all stages of life! You've never worked before but are finally starting to get that empty feeling? Submit your application! Maybe you've worked in corporate America for 50 years and are tired of the hustle and bustle. See what Giant Eagle has got. Those are the folks that comprise this progressive market.
When it comes to their culture of inclusion and diversity, Giant Eagle isn't just winging it... That felt a little forced. But really, Giant Eagle puts a huge emphasis on their inclusionary policies. It's become part of their identity.
They even have an executive position, along with an organized diversity council, that is solely dedicated to ensuring that the company is being as inclusive as possible. This is a company where everybody gets a chance. You'll get the chance to be a part of Team Member Point of View activities, which aren't things that most places offer. Those Team Member Point of View activities consists of employees working together to create presentations on things they find important. For example, Black History Month.
Another super cool thing that Giant Eagle does is organize Business Resource Groups. These BRGs key functions are basically to keep their place of work in check. They're also great networking opportunities and chances to share ideas that could influence the company's direction.
The 6 different types of BRGs are:
These types of groups show that the company is really invested in the growth of their employees. It isn't about just showing up on time and getting your work done with Giant Eagle. It's more about becoming a great person. It's about learning what it means to be a member of a community, which tends to be a blurred concept for us modern folks.
Giant Eagle doesn't play around with this type of stuff. Since 2016, they've won 11 national awards for their diversity and inclusion methods. I guess what I'm saying is you'll feel right at home.
You might not think that a grocery store chain would have the greatest benefits to offer. But Giant Eagle has a giant amount to offer when it comes to taking care of its employees. Their benefits go right along with their community enrichment ethos.
Some benefits of getting on with Giant Eagle are:
Because there is such a varied set of positions for people in all stages of their lives at this company -- they could have a fourteen-year-old high school student interviewing the same day that someone with a master's degree and 15 years of marketing experience is interviewing -- there isn't really an average interview with Giant Eagle.
But what you can expect is that other than wanting to get to know you and hear about your goals, they will likely put you through some testing. So come prepared with your thinking cap!
The types of job opportunities available at Giant Eagle are as diverse as their workforce. It's hard to think of a more American first job than a bag boy/girl, a role that Giant Eagle has in spades. But they also hire for high-level managerial and executive positions. They have analysts on staff, recruiters, administrators for third party contractors. They've got night stockers (if you're an insomniac like me) and customer service reps.
Because of the global digitization pandemic, they also have tech and marketing jobs available. Giant Eagle is definitely a company pushing to remain as modern as possible and thrive across all digital platforms. Check them out on social, they do a bang-up job.
