Now is your chance to begin a career with a beloved business in the Philadelphia region.

On Wednesday, Wawa announced plans to hire more than 5,000 new employees across all its locations this spring. The Delaware County-headquartered company currently operates 750 stores in six U.S. states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

“As we continue to expand and grow, we’re excited to fill these 5,000-plus positions with people who will quickly become part of the Wawa Way," said Dave Filano, the convenience store chain's talent acquisition manager.

Wawa officials indicated that most of the available opportunities will be in customer service and management-level positions. The company is looking to fill full- and part-time roles.

Select stores will host open houses on Wednesdays, beginning March 29 through April 19. At those events, interested individuals can participate in a brief interview and learn about employment requirements.

"We’re specifically looking for individuals who enjoy serving others, who want to join our team for the busy summer season and as well as those who might be interested in the start of a fulfilling career at Wawa,” Filano said.

Job seekers are encouraged to apply online prior to attending an open house.
