Wegmans Food Markets is hiring more than 500 part- and full-time employees throughout New Jersey locations.
Positions are available at all nine New Jersey stores, at warehouses, and at replenishment centers.
“In addition to supporting our local food banks, we’re fortunate to be in a position to offer employment to those who are unexpectedly out of work. If you see yourself as a fit for Wegmans, whether it’s temporary or long-term, we want you on the team,” said New Jersey Division Manager Joe Sofia in a prepared statement.
It’s not the only retailer hiring during the COVID-19 pandemic. CVS Health, Amazon, Wawa, Walmart, and ShopRite are also hiring as food retail continues to be considered essential. Instacart is hiring personal shoppers. And, New Jersey-based food companies such as Wakefern Food Corp. and Campbell Soup Co. have increased employee benefits and compensation.
