Stop & Shop is planning to hire thousands more workers to keep up with demand caused by the pandemic.
The supermarket chain says it is planning to hire 5,000 workers. It says it has seen an unprecedented demand for delivery and curbside pickup during the pandemic.
The available positions across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island are permanent and include store roles in bakery, deli, grocery, seafood, produce, front end, night crew and online pickup. Stop & Shop is also hiring home delivery drivers and shoppers, as well as selectors at its distribution centers.
“As we continue to expand our e-commerce capacity, and work to deliver a great in-store experience, we’re looking for more team members who want to join our business,” said Maria Silvestri, senior vice president of human resources for Stop & Shop.
“We’re happy to be able to offer professional opportunities with stability for the many whose jobs may have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
