Wegmans’ Westwood store will employ a total of 550 full- and part-time people, the vast majority hired locally.
“Now is the time to apply,” said Marybeth Stewart, Wegmans’ human resources manager for New England. “Although we won’t open for a few months, we will bring new employees on board quickly to start training. One of the reasons Wegmans is such a great place to work is that we promote from within. We are opening new stores every year, and more are planned for New England. This opens up so much opportunity for anyone interested in a career with our company.”
Open interviews will be conducted and part-time and full-time applicants may apply online at www.wegmans.com/careers or call 1-877-WEGMANS (934-6267) for more information.
The Westwood Wegmans is a 122,000-square-foot supermarket and includes a Market Café with indoor and outdoor seating and a complete wine and beer shop.
“We’re right on track in terms of the construction schedule at the Westwood store,” said Westwood Store Manager Dave Orlovsky. “We have our sign up at University Station and newly hired full-time employees training at different locations. Wegmans is a great place to work and build a career. We have best-in-class training programs, competitive pay and benefits, including our scholarship program, and a family atmosphere in our stores.”
