Ahead of Wegman’s 2023 opening in Reston, hiring is underway
A second round of recruitment is underway for an additional 250 part-time positions at the future Wegmans Food Markets in Reston.
The 85,000-square-foot store is located in the Halley Rise mixed-use gated community at the intersection of Reston Parkway and Sunrise Valley Drive. Marcie Rivera, a spokeswoman for Wegmans, tells FFXnow that an opening date has not yet been set.
“But we plan to open sometime in early 2023,” says Rivera. Early 2023 has been the goal since the beginning of the project.
An in-person recruitment event for all positions is scheduled to be held tomorrow (Wednesday) from 10:30am to 4:30pm at the Reston YMCA (12196 Sunset Hills Road). Applicants should complete an online application prior to the event.
“We are looking for applicants who are passionate about food and eager to make a difference for our customers and community,” said Reston Store Manager Katie Sullivan. “The ideal candidate also shares our core values of respect, caring and high standards. If you meet these criteria, we can teach you all the other skills you need to be successful in our company.”
The Reston location is the company’s 15th store in the state. It will employ more than 400 people, most of whom will be newly hired and hired locally.
Job openings range from culinary roles to customer service representatives. Hiring for full-time positions began this spring and is continuing.
