Wegmans to Open Nov. 5; Begins Hiring, Training Employees


Wegmans Food Markets is now hiring and training for 250 part-time positions at its new Medford location on the north side of Mystic Valley Parkway at Locust St., set to open Sunday, Nov. 5. The store will employ a total of 450 full- and part-time people, the vast majority hired locally.

Part-time positions are available in all departments, offering competitive pay and benefits, flexible scheduling, and a workplace known for a caring, family atmosphere. There are a significant number of culinary positions, such as cooks and front of house. Select full-time openings remain for prepared foods, deli, produce, and overnight grocery operations.

“Wegmans is a great place to work and now is the time to apply as we continue growing in New England,” said Store Manager Kevin Russell, a 30-year employee of the family-owned company. “Although we’re several months out from the opening, we’re right on track and already bringing new employees on board to start training.”

Applicants may apply online at or call 781-322-0985 for more information.

The Medford Wegmans is a 120,000 square-foot supermarket that includes a Market Café with indoor and outdoor seating and The Burger Bar, a family-friendly, casual restaurant counter that serves delicious burgers, fresh salads, flavorful sandwiches, specialty milkshakes, soups, and sides. This store will be Wegmans’ fifth location in New England since opening in Northborough in 2011. Another new location is slated to open in Natick in 2018.

“We’re looking for upbeat people who take pride in their work and have a passion for food. If they have the right attitude, we can teach all the other skills needed to be successful,” said Russell. “Wegmans is proudly celebrating 20 consecutive years on the FORTUNE magazine’s list of ‘100 Best Companies to Work For.’”
