Wegmans Food Markets is now hiring and training full-time employees for its Concordville store in Glen Mills, set to open Nov. 8, 2015. Available openings include everything from customer service and entry-level management to restaurant service and culinary positions.
The Concordville store will employ approximately 525 people, 500 of whom will be hired locally. Of these, there are 175 full-time positions to be filled. Hiring for part-time positions will begin at a later date.
Full-time job applicants are invited to apply online or by smart phone at www.wegmans.com or call 1-877-WEGMANS (934-6267) for more information. Applications are not accepted at the store or construction site, nor will interviews be conducted there. Wegmans plans to begin scheduling interviews at its Chadds Ford employment office in April.
“These jobs offer flexible scheduling, competitive pay and benefits, and a friendly workplace,” said Todd Strassner Jr., Concordville store manager and 16-year veteran with the company. “We’re looking for people who share our passion for helping customers make great meals easy. Soon after being hired, employees begin extensive training to learn the skills, service, and product knowledge Wegmans is known for.”
Concordville Wegmans, a 111,000 square-foot supermarket, will be part of the Brandywine Mills shopping center, located on Route 202 near Route 1. The Pub by Wegmans, a full-service casual restaurant and bar within the store, will be featured at this location.
“Wegmans is growing, but we remain a family business at heart. There are numerous opportunities in a wide range of departments, and it’s a great time to build a career with us,” said Strassner.
Wegmans currently operates 16 stores and a Retail Service Center distribution hub in Pennsylvania. By the time the new store opens, Wegmans will have created more than 8,500 jobs in the state since opening in Erie in 1993. The company is set to open three new stores in 2015, located in Alexandria VA, Westwood MA, and Concordville PA.
