We Compete With Other Companies, Not Each Other - Nicole

Competition is a large concern for a lot of students interested in working for Labatt & ABI You might assume that a group of outgoing individuals seeking high-powered careers might have a hard time working together. Funny enough, the GMTs are probably the best team I have ever worked with. When you put a group of young, determined, career-focused, leaders together, the result is a team that is constantly striving to help each other. Sounds too good to be true right? That’s what I thought. I’m happy I was wrong.

The opportunities available to you as a GMT are unprecedented for an entry-level role for a recent graduate. A few examples would be: discussing the largest roadblocks Labatt is facing in the Canadian market with Abud, the Canadian President, or discussing macro trends with the Ambev Board of Directors. These opportunities instill a sense of supportive confidence and it feels like the company believes you will have a large impact. I can’t speak for all of the GMTs, however I believe that it is this support that pushes us to meet the high expectations of the GMT role and continually seek improvement.

So what really happens when you give a group of Type A people unparalleled opportunities in a team environment? You get a group of people who genuinely want to become the best version of themselves and the best version of yourself requires a willingness to admit weakness, seek compromise, and continuously learn so you can exceed the bar you set for yourself.
