PITTSBURGH, PA - Giant Eagle went on a hiring spree in Pittsburgh, PA, looking to fill 400 spots last weekend at several locations.

Last Saturday, August 27th, the retailer hosted hiring events at five different locations in the region, looking to fill a number of spots in various departments, including specialty positions as needed, according to a report by news source WTAE.

Positions included:

  • Grocery and Produce Clerks

Candidates who participated were able to have on-site interviews and possible same-day job offers, with the company offering sign-on bonuses for specialty positions.

This is the second major hiring event Giant Eagle has hosted this summer, having held Ohio events to fill over 300 positions just last June. The company also alluded to further strategic moves last week, when CEO Laura Karet publically discussed a consistent need for reinvention in an increasingly competitive market.
