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,” Maria Silvestri, senior vice president of human resources for Stop & Shop, said in a statement. “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.”
