Wegmans to Hire Over 500 New Employees
HARRISON, NY – Wegmans’ 102nd store location—and the 48th in New York State—is currently hiring and training over 500 new employees. The new employees will work at Wegmans’ upcoming Harrison, New York, location and will support the growth the grocer has been chasing after along the East Coast.
“We started our hiring as of April 1,” Matthew Dailor, Store Manager, said, according to the Daily Voice Plus. “The number is in flux. We’re trying to hire over 500 so we’re always looking for good people. Currently, our folks are training in our Montvale, New Jersey, location, which is some 30 minutes away.”
The Harrison location is still under construction, but is expected to amount to 121,000 square feet on a 20-acre site. Wegmans first bought the site a few years ago for $26.5 million. The new store is also expected to feature fun amenities like a made-to-go salad station and will carry 70,000 items by the time it opens in 2020.
“We’re on track for a spring 2020 opening. We’re currently working on our foundations,” Dailor continued. “There are a lot of things that can influence construction that are out of our control…We want to keep the opening date general for a little bit longer until we have a better idea of what that looks like.”
