As part of our Management Development Program (MDP) Phase III - Operator in Training, you will have the opportunity to enhance your current skills, knowledge and experience, by working closely with a successful Franchise Owner/Operator.

Our 36 weeks program will have you spending time in Giant Tiger stores, learning about Giant Tiger Systems. The program is based on a series of projects that will give you the chance to review/learn the GT Store Systems, allowing you to dig into the details of operating a successful retail business.

Your in-store training will be supplemented with seminars at our Home Office lead by Giant Tiger specialists from each area as well as spending time with your Regional Support Manager in your training store and on the road visiting other stores. To ensure your development is effectively progressing periodic evaluations are completed to help us adjust your training to those areas that require focus.

During your training period, you will also have the opportunity to support new store set-ups and openings, work on special projects building friendships and relationships that will be invaluable when you are operating your own store.
