Wegmans Food Markets has started hiring to fill about 250 full-time jobs for its new Columbia supermarket, which is set to open in mid-June, Wegmans announced Thursday.
The grocer plans to hire 700 people total, including part-time workers, to staff the 145,000-square-foot store at Snowden River Parkway and McGaw Road. It will be the fifth location in Maryland for the 79-store chain.
Jobs will be available for cashiers and entry-level managers, as well as in the customer service and culinary and restaurant areas. Job-seekers can apply online at http://www.wegmans.com/careers. Wegmans ranked No. 3 on Fortune magazine's 2011 list of "100 Best Companies to Work For."
The Columbia store will offer a large prepared foods department, as many as 700 fresh produce items, 200 types of imported and domestic cheese, and a Market Café restaurant, Wegmans said.
