  • It's National Truck Driver Appreciation Week! "Our drivers are the best of the best," said John Ponnett, senior vice president of retail operations, The GIANT Company. "The backbone of our business, this elite group works tirelessly 365 days a year to ensure the products our customers are counting on arrive at our stores, safely, securely, and on time. We're grateful for this incredible team of men and women every day, but they deserve an extra shout out for their extraordinary service during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • One of the most important parts of Pennsylvania's agriculture economy, dairy farming supports 52,000 jobs and generates $14.7 billion a year. However, challenging market conditions have created a serious threat to the livelihood of many dairy farmers. As many as 500 small Pennsylvania dairy farms have closed over the past two years, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only compounded the crisis. The Philadelphia Inquirer explores how our friend and local partner, Rynn Caputo, and the entire team at Caputo Brothers Creamery, are using water buffalo to make a difference one dairy farm at a time.

The GIANT Company Reviews

  • Featured Review

    "Amazing way to gain experience"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Competitive hourly wages, yearly raises, paid vacation and sick time even for part-time associates, a lot of room to grow in the company, various departments to work in, a lot of middle-management people and managers who are there to help you be the best you can be.

    Cons

    Unruly customers. There are very few of them that cannot be appeased no matter what, but when they take it out on you it makes the job more tense than it needs to be.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little more time checking in with each employee individually to see how they are doing maybe every month or so.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The GIANT Company (Carlisle, PA) in July 2020.

    Interview

    I just had a virtual interview with two people that lasted about 45 minutes. It was done with Microsoft Teams. The people were very friendly and were very informative. They also let me ask questions at the end.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked pretty normal questions. They did ask how I felt they could improve their interview process which was kind of a curve-ball question.   Answer Question
