GPM Investments, LLC to hire up to 5,000 store employees in the wake of the COVID-19 virus
March 21, 2020
GPM Investments, LLC, which operates and supplies convenience stores in 23 states, plans to hire 5,000 associates in their stores. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the chain hopes to provide critical employment opportunities for those in local communities who may have recently lost their income as a result of a temporary closure. The chain provides essential items to the communities in which they serve that help consumers find those high demand items that may be hard to find elsewhere.
“We are an essential business which will remain open in order to assist our communities, customers and associates” said Arie Kotler, Chief Executive Officer of GPM. Kotler went on to say, “We operate in a number of small towns and we recognize many people may be out of work. We realize this is a difficult time, but want to assure people who live in the communities where we operate, that we intend to continue operations and can provide employment opportunities for those who have lost their income as a result of the pandemic. We are here to serve our customers and together, we are working hard to ensure that our friends and families in the communities we serve have the essential items they need to care for their families. I continue to be amazed at the dedication and fortitude of our associates as we navigate this crisis and hope to add many others in need to our team.”
GPM will be offering incentives to team members that can be used to obtain food, fuel and other essential items. “We continue to evaluate and do what we can to support our existing and new team members,” says GPM’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Veronica Donchez.
