Wegmans Food Market in Harrison, New York, the Rochester-based supermarket chain, is now seeking 220 full-time employees to staff the new 121,000-s.f. store in advance of the spring 2020 opening.
Full-time jobs include positions from customer service and entry-level management to a wide range of culinary positions such as chefs and line cooks. The Harrison store will employ more than 500 people; the majority of whom will be hired locally. Applications are not accepted at the store construction site nor will interviews be conducted there. Hiring for part-time positions will begin at a later date.
“We bring new employees on board to begin training quickly after they’re hired,” said Store Manager Matthew Dailor, who began working at Wegmans 25 years ago as a part-time parking lot attendant. “Our commitment to in-depth training is the main reason we begin the hiring process so early. These jobs provide competitive pay with industry-leading benefits, flexible scheduling and most importantly, a great place to work.”
Wegmans Harrison will be built at 106 Corporate Park Drive near Interstate 287 and the Hutchinson River Parkway. The new store will offer a variety of restaurant prepared foods, including The Burger Bar, a family friendly, casual restaurant counter that serves burgers, salads, sandwiches, kids meals, soup, sides and beer and wine by the glass.
Wegmans will open three new stores this year in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Brooklyn, New York. Harrison will be Wegmans’ 102nd store and the 48th location in New York State.
Wegmans Food Markets is a 98-store, family-owned supermarket chain with stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
