Learning & Development
We believe in you and want to see you grow! So we’re here to support you and your dreams from day one.
At Giant, you have opportunities to learn, grow and advance!
We want this to be the start of a rich and rewarding career so we have developed a number of ways to support you in your personal and professional growth.
Starting on day 1:
You’ll get off to a great start with comprehensive and engaging onboarding.
Learning about your company, your department and your role on the team.
You’ll learn something about your role, department and team every day. That’s what “on the job training” is all about. Have questions? Just ask! We love your curiosity and want you to have the information you need.
Learning about our stores
Our stores are the most important part of our organization. Without them, we’re nothing! That’s why we encourage everyone whose role doesn’t include store contact (corporate roles, generally) to spend “ a day in the life” of a store associate. That way they have a better understanding of the effects their decisions could have on the floor, and they get an understanding of the amazing work our store associates do every day!
Want to develop your leadership skills?
We offer Giant Leadership Courses to associates at various levels across our departments. They focus on values and practices like: communication, trust, influence and performance management. For associates who want to further develop their leadership skills we offer the following.
