A second round of hiring is underway for more 250 part-time positions at the future Wegmans Food Markets in Reston.

The 85,000-square-foot store is located at the Halley Rise mixed-use development at the intersection of Reston Parkway and Sunrise Valley Drive. Marcie Rivera, a spokesperson for Wegmans, tells FFXnow that an opening date has not yet been determined.

“But we plan to open sometime in early 2023,” Rivera says. Early 2023 has been the target for the project since it began.

An in-person hiring event for all positions is slated to take place tomorrow (Wednesday) from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Reston YMCA (12196 Sunset Hills Road). Applicants should complete an online application in advance of the event.

“We’re looking for applicants who have a passion for food and are eager to make a difference for our customers and the community,” said Reston Store Manager Katie Sullivan. “The ideal candidate also shares our core values of respect, caring, and high standards. If you match these criteria, we can teach you all the other skills you need to thrive 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 are new hires and will be hired locally.

Job openings range from culinary roles to customer service representatives. Hiring for full-time jobs began this spring and continues.
