Wawa is set to bring on up to 5,000 new hires in 2018 across six states.
Convenience store chain Wawa is looking for people with a strong passion for serving others to fill a number of new positions at the company.
Wawa Inc. is launching its spring hiring campaign with the goal of hiring up to 5,000 new associates this year during the next three months, with all of Wawa’s 790 stores across its six-state operating area looking to add new talent.
The annual hiring campaign will span the spring season, looking to fill customer-service and management-level positions and is part of Wawa’s overall commitment to provide job opportunities that can lead to fulfilling careers for community members across the company’s operating area.
“At Wawa, part of commitment to fulfilling lives means adding jobs for new associates, while also providing advancement opportunities for the more than 30,000 Wawa associates who are part of our team. That’s why we’re thrilled to kick-off this year’s spring hiring campaign and add a number of new members to our growing Wawa Family,” said Elizabeth Moore, manager of talent acquisition at Wawa. “As we look to fill these positions with people who have a strong passion for serving others, we’re looking for individuals who want to join our team for the busy summer season as well those who might be interested in the start of a fulfilling career at Wawa.”
Wawa Career Wednesdays
While every store will have job opportunities available, some will host open houses called ‘Wawa Career Wednesdays’ to include open houses at select stores on every Wednesday for four straight weeks, beginning March 28 and running through April 18. As part of the Wawa Career Wednesdays, potential associates can receive a brief, first interview, learn more about Wawa’s unique culture, explore career opportunities, and discover the important role Wawa associates play in their communities.
Stores hosting the Open House events will have signs announcing the dates/time of the open house. Individuals interested in career opportunities at Wawa are encouraged to apply online prior to attending an Open House event.
Wawa associates hired in these full and part-time positions enjoy competitive salaries and health benefits, as well as flexible schedules and tuition reimbursement opportunities. In addition, through Wawa’s employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), associates share directly in the growth of Wawa. Today Wawa is 41% owned by associates through the ESOP. Nearly half the ESOP is owned by store level associates and store management. With more than 11,000 participants, Wawa’s ESOP ranks as one of the top10 largest ESOPs in the country.
