Wegmans Ranked #1 on ‘2017 Best Workplaces in Retail’ List

Wegmans is proud to announce, once again, it has been named one of the Best Workplaces in Retail by research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and FORTUNE magazine, ranking #1 for the second straight year.

Fresh off a blockbuster opening on Sunday at its Medford, MA store that began at 7 am with a line of more than 1,000 customers and 23,500 by day’s end, Wegmans will host a hiring event at four store locations in Massachusetts on Monday, Nov. 13. The family-owned company hopes to fill nearly 700 permanent full- and part-time jobs.

Approximately 300 positions are open across all of Wegmans’ existing MA stores. Another 400 are for the new Natick store that will open in spring 2018.

Jobs include customer service, entry-level management, and a number of restaurant and culinary positions, such as line cooks and sous chefs.

“Our business is booming in Massachusetts. For anyone looking to start or grow a career, we have so much to offer,” says Marybeth Stewart, New England human resources manager, pointing to competitive pay and benefits, flexible scheduling, career growth opportunities, and an employee scholarship program available to both full- and part-time employees.

After completing an application, candidates will be interviewed on the spot at each of the four stores. Stewart says, “We want the process to be easy and convenient.”

Job seekers are encouraged to first apply online at www.wegmans.com/careers. The candidate should then search for the store location they are interested in working at to view a list of open positions. Those interested can also call the store at the number listed above for more information. There will also be the opportunity to submit an application at the event.
