GIANT took care of me and I fell in love with the business! I never looked back and I’m so pleased with my new career path. After working part-time for five years, I became a Store Employment Associate and worked up to Assistant Store Manager. I’d like to eventually be a Store Manager, Human Resources Manager or even a District Director. Each new role exposes me to new opportunities and I never feel “stuck.” At GIANT every day is new and there’s never a dull moment. I learn something every day and get to work with people from all walks of life. The most important thing I do is “walk the walk.” I work with my team and never ask them to do something I wouldn’t do myself. Together we make our company great. I’ve always been encouraged to step out of my comfort zone and find the best in myself. I advise new associates to do the same: tell your manager what you’re interested in and make it happen!
