How to Get Hired
We asked Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
With 48,000 employees at over 100 locations across six states, we hire for a values-match to preserve our culture. Ideal candidates are passionate people, enjoy working with others and are service-oriented. Candidates choose Wegmans because they share the same set of core values: Caring, High Standards, Making a Difference, Respect and Empowerment. We value a diverse workforce, because new and different ways of thinking helps set our business apart from the competition and drives innovation to better serve the customer. Our people are empowered to make decisions to improve their work and benefit our company, so we seek candidates who want to be involved, are open to change, are continuous-improvement minded and committed to sharing their ideas.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Candidates stand out when they demonstrate they are positive and enthusiastic - active learners who enjoy a fast-paced environment, aspiring to learn and grow and provide incredible service to their co-workers and customers. Our mission is to help people live healthier, better lives through food – and if a candidate shares that passion, they will help our company grow and evolve. The very best candidates recognize that by joining Wegmans they will become part of something larger than themselves, or their individual work, and embrace a collaborative working style; eagerly helping others.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We will open three stores in 2019, each creating about 500 new job opportunities including part- and full-time customer service, supervisory and culinary positions. We will also need cashiers and customer service representatives in our existing stores. In addition, we will be hiring drivers and product selectors for our distribution center in Pottsville, Pennsylvania to support new store growth. We will continue to seek culinary and hospitality minded individuals to create great tasting meals in our fun, in-store restaurants to meet the customer demand for fast, casual dining. As our company grows, we continue to look for specialized talent for select technical positions in our main office supporting roles to our stores.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Applicants should go online at Wegmans.com/careers to learn about our company, our benefits, company growth and the types of jobs at Wegmans. But the best way to get to know Wegmans is to visit a store and talk with our people and our customers about their experiences and what they love about Wegmans! If you become inspired to become a part of this family-owned, values-based, mission-driven company where you can do what you love, we promise it will be a lot of fun along the way!
