    I have been working at Wawa full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse atmosphere to work in. Yes it's demanding due to the volume but is a place where you can get the support of peers and mgmt. Performance is rewarded.

    Cons

    Company is turning from a smaller company to a fairly large organization with 22 K employees. Processes and procedures need to change in order to handle the scope and size of the company. Mistakes can be made in the process of dealing with this.
    Sometimes longer term employees are picked for promotion over the better candidate just because "that's the process".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on valuing people both customers and associates and the rest should take care of itself.

    Great Salary, Monthly Bonuses, ESOP, 401k Match, great benefits including vision and dental. Make your own schedule only 2 weekends a month required and 2 split shifts to 7PM a month. Room for growth. Company really values its associates.

    24/7 so always need to be available, call outs can be difficult So much growth can lose key team members on short notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train all associates to be able to perform all job functions. Value your associates

    Pros

    The job hours are flexible and the pay is decent. Also after a year, you may qualify for amazing benefits and access to the Employee Stock Ownership Program. Can't forget the 401k, which is awesome!

    Cons

    The environment is very fast paced so you have to learn things quickly. You'll be expected to work quickly, yet efficiently. There's alot of work to do and sometimes it feels like there's not enough time to do it or enough people in a shift to get it all done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the "Wawa way" and you'll be fine.
