We are committed to doing so by serving one another, our customers and our communities while building an inclusive and diverse company. Giant Eagle’s culture encourages everyone to feel confident about speaking up. We want to hear whaour Team Members have to say, and we value what they share. Not only is this the right thing to do, it’s the best possible business decision. Team Members are more engaged and innovative when their individual perspectives are valued and they are empowered to be themselves. The talent market and our business are becoming more and more competitive, and our customers are increasingly diverse, which is why we need various internal perspectives to fully understand them and meet their needs. The more we can all identify with and relate to one another, our customers and communities, the stronger our company will become. That’s why our more than 33,000 Team Members come to work each day in our stores, retail support centers and offices, and that’s also what makes our Giant Eagle family so unique.”

We continue to build an inclusive and diverse workplace. We know that when you feel included, you work better and are more creative. By being engaged on the job, you help us better understand our customers, develop innovative solutions and grow our business.

Our Vision.
Giant Eagle will make more informed business decisions when we listen to the diverse perspectives of all Team Members, customers, business partners and shareholders. In doing so, we’ll look more like the markets we serve, and our Team Members will know their contributions are valued.

    Pros

    These are some of the hardest working people I’ve seen, and if they see that you can work, and work hard, they’ll “go to the moon and the stars” to help you.
    They’ll give you all the help under the sun if they know you want this job!
    If not, they’ll not waste their time.
    Everyone is really relaxed, the atmosphere is really laid back, while still respectful.
    Management is awesome, and they’re really chill too. There’s no one in there who is stuck up, or difficult, as they all realize that they all need to work together.
    Plus, many of them have been there 10+ years, and they’re more than willing to help out new guys!
    I can’t say enough about the positives!!

    Cons

    No cons I have found here so far

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work!!
