Wegmans to open new location in Natick

September 27, 2017 by  

Wegmans Food Markets recently announced the opening of a new store in the Natick Mall, and the start of recruitment for full-time positions.

The store plans to hire a total of 550 people, about half of whom will be working full-time with an immediate start date. Those working part-time will start at a later date. Most of the employees working at the store will be local hires and new to the company.

The human resources manager for New England for Wegmans, Marybeth Stewart, said that the open full-time positions include customer service, entry-level management, and culinary and restaurant roles, such as sous chefs and line cooks. All positions offer flexible scheduling, competitive pay and benefits packages, and career growth and development.

The store concept at Natick will be an innovative one. The space was once a department store and covers 134,000 square feet over two floors. There will be two restaurants on another 12,500 square feet on the second floor and a complementary tenant for the 45,000 square feet on the third floor of the building.

The Natick Wegmans is scheduled to open in the spring of 2018.

Grocery stores such as Wegmans might consider using business card printing services for new full-time employees as a way to promote new stores and the job openings that come with them.
