Weigel’s, a dairy, bakery and convenience store chain, is experiencing explosive growth in East Tennessee. More than 200 hundred jobs are being created due to Weigel’s growing footprint in Bristol, White Pine, Morristown and Wears Valley.
With many folks working from home and folks traveling less, a trip “out of the house” is a treat for many. Weigel’s locations have become a staple in many neighborhoods, so adding new locations is a natural progression to its current 68 East Tennessee stores.
“Our growth requires we hire immediately to staff for the new store locations that will open,” said Kurt Weigel, training and recruiting director. “We have opportunities for full-time and part-time positions at all levels, including management, foodservice and customer service roles, and we are bringing these opportunities to the local communities now to provide them jobs to benefit themselves and their families.”
For 90 years Weigel’s has created fulfilling careers, many of which began at an entry level customer-service position. Weigel’s prides itself in promoting from within, which enables its team members to grow faster within the organization.
“I joined the Weigel’s team six years ago, and I am so glad I am part of this family-owned business,” said Nora Taylor. “Weigel’s is a great place to serve others. And it’s a place that really takes the time to train their people, so I can continue to grow my career here at Weigel’s.”
East Tennessee-based Weigel’s core purpose is to “Wow” guests with a positive experience every time. Weigel’s passion is people – team members can create amazing customer-focus shopping experiences on a daily basis.
Weigel’s offers career progression opportunities, paid training, mentoring, medical, vision, dental, 401(k), life insurance and critical illness insurance for its entire family of associates. Weigel’s is a family-owned business. Visit WeigelsJobs.com for additional information.
