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.

Royal Farms associates hired in full- and part-time positions receive competitive pay (as much as $15 an hour); medical, dental and vision insurance; a 401(k)-retirement plan; paid vacation for full time employees; and an employee discount program for food. There are many opportunities for advancement, as Royal Farms always looks to promote from within first, it said.

Baltimore-based Royal Farms has more than 240 locations in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
