Germantown Wegmans is Hiring

Supermarket seeking to hire 550 local employees at the chain's first Montgomery County location

Wegmans hopes to hire 550 local employees ahead of its fall 2013 opening in Germantown, the company announced Tuesday.

The supermarket chain is looking to employ 600 people in all. There were 250 full-time jobs available, ranging from entry-level management, customer service, pharmacy and cashiers to a wide range of culinary and food service positions, corporate officials said in a press release.

Hiring for part-time jobs would begin in early summer.

The Germantown store will be the chain's first store in Montgomery County, a Wegman's spokeswoman told Patch.

The 123,000 square-foot supermarket is slated for Seneca Meadows Plaza. The store’s signature clock tower is already visible from Interstate 270, at exit 16.

Phill Quattrini will manage the Germantown store. The 25-year Wegmans veteran began working at the Rochester, NY-based chain during high school and eventually made his way to the Washington, DC region. He managed the Dulles, VA Wegmans in 2007 before opening new stores in Leesburg, VA and Frederick, MD.

McDonalds and lots of others around here are also hiring, While just a few feet away the intersections are filled with panhandlers begging up and down the highway. And they are really dedicated workers too as they don't miss a day no matter how hot or cold it is. What a shame we have come to in this country, esp. in this county.
