Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse employees are getting a chance to get back to work thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Giant Eagle.

 “Supermarkets, pharmacies and fuel stations are critical community resources right now," said, Laura Shapira Karet, President and CEO of Giant Eagle Inc in a press release Monday. "I continue to be amazed by the commitment and compassion of our Giant Eagle and GetGo Team Members, and thank Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse workers who have stepped up to help us get this important work done,”she said. 

In addition to this partnership, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced earlier this month that all workers will be compensated for cancelled games and events, including the NCAA tournament and the Michael Buble concert.

“This opportunity and partnership is a true win-win-win for everyone. Our event and part-time team at the FieldHouse is a group we are working hard to support during this unprecedented and uncertain time,” said Len Kormoski, President and CEO of Cavaliers and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

Giant Eagle says it is also looking to fill hundreds of job vacancies across the state, and the company is encouraging anyone who is interested to apply. To apply, click here
