Wawa continues to open new locations throughout the Sunshine State and is seeking to hire over 2,000 new employees at the start of the new year.

The Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain announced Wednesday they are beginning a new campaign with the goal of hiring 2,000 new associates across Florida.

The company stated that the new positions, which are full-time and part-time, are the result of both seasonal and store growth across Wawa’s Florida operations.

The jobs aim to fill in gaps in store-level customer service, management, and supervisory-level positions.

“We are excited to continue growing our Florida presence as we approach our tenth anniversary of serving our friends and neighbors in the Sunshine State later this year. As we expand our stores, services and product offer, we are thrilled to provide new jobs and advancement opportunities for our associates,” said Stephanie Capaccio, the director of people team operations at Wawa.

Hourly store associates’ wages begin at $15 per hour. The company says all part- and full-time employees will receive personal and financial benefits, tuition reimbursement, health and wellness benefits, and a 401(k) match.

Wawa has expanded substantially in the past decade and currently has over 230 locations across the state.

Capaccio said Wawa will also open more than 20 new stores in Florida this year.
