BALTIMORE — With a growing store count and warmer months approaching, convenience-store retailer Royal Farms is ramping up a large-scale hiring effort that aims to bring on 4,500 new employees before the end of this year.
The open positions range from part-time and full-time options, as well as customer service- associate- and management-level positions. At select locations, the company is offering new employees a $500 sign-on bonus. It is also offering a $300 referral bonus for any active employee internally. If an employee is fully vaccinated, they will also receive a $50 COVID-19 wellness bonus.
“As we continue our growth in the Mid-Atlantic region, we are very excited to support these new communities along with the communities that we are already a part of. Our teams work hard every day to support our great customers and give them the outstanding service the deserve,” said Brian Roche, director of human resources.
