Wegmans will hire more than 1,000 people at two new Richmond area stores

MIDLOTHIAN, Va. (WRIC) — Wegmans is set to open two new stores in Midlothian and Short Pump. The stores in Midlothian and Short Pump combined will create more than 1,000 new jobs in Greater Richmond.

Available positions include everything from entry-level management to customer service, culinary and restaurant service.

The Midlothian store opens Spring 2016 in the Stonehenge Village shopping center on the Midlothian Turnpike, just east of Farnham Drive, and will employ about 550 people, 500 of whom will be hired locally. Of these, there are 200 full-time positions to be filled. Hiring for part-time positions will begin at a later date.

Wegmans’ Short Pump location will be 120,000 square feet, will have 550 full and part time employees, and majority will be hired locally.

“We’re a family-owned company with job opportunities that offer flexible scheduling, competitive pay and benefits, and a friendly workplace,” said Jerry Shelly, Wegmans Midlothian store manager and 26-year veteran with the company. “Soon after being hired, new employees are welcomed into our Wegmans family and they begin training to learn the skills, service, and product knowledge our company is known for.”

Full-time job applicants are invited to apply online or by smart phone. Click here to apply. You can also call 1-877-WEGMANS (934-6267) for more information.

Heads up: Applications are not accepted at the store or construction site and interviews won’t be conducted there. Wegmans plans to begin scheduling interviews in September at its Midlothian employment office.

“We promote from within and we’re looking for good people who are ready to learn and grow a career with us. I’m proud to begin building the team that will bring incredible customer service to the Richmond area and Wegmans is eager to make a difference in this community,” said Shelly.
