Wawa Inc. is in the final stages of its launch into southeast Florida with the first wave of new stores slated to open during the first half of 2017. Wawa’s store operations team has started accepting applications for jobs at the first stores it will open in Palm Beach County and Broward County and will begin interviews and hiring in January, 2017.
Wawa’s Talent Acquisition team has already begun hiring for Customer Service Supervisors in both counties in anticipation of future store openings throughout the year.
To fill these more than 400 new jobs, all of which are new positions brought to the area through the development of the stores, Wawa is looking to hire Customer Service Supervisors, Night Supervisors and Customer Service Associates.
Wawa will be hosting a hiring fair from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wed., Jan. 18 at the Courtyard, 1800 Centrepark Drive East, West Palm Beach, Fla. Wawa hiring managers recommend prospective candidates with prior restaurant/retail experience to apply to the career site prior to attending the hiring fair.
“We are thrilled to start writing the next chapter of Wawa’s expansion story here in South Florida and the most exciting part of that story begins when we start to add new associates to our rapidly growing Wawa family,” said Denise Diillio, Wawa area manager. “Our team is looking forward to being able to provide more than 400 new job opportunities to enthusiastic associates in southeast Florida throughout 2017, and continuing to see that number increase as we grow our stores and open more locations in our communities for years to come.”
