    I worked at Wawa part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free coffee and fountain drinks, the manager I had was very nice.

    Cons

    You really don't get breaks. I worked straight 7 and 8 hour shifts and got the equivalent of two five minute breaks a day. My store was always understaffed, and any time I was given a break, 5 minutes in I was called back to the register. The only people who got any decent kind of break were the smokers who needed 10 minute cigarette breaks twice a day. It was ridiculous. When you are a cashier there you do not even get time to breathe if your store is busy. For 8.50 and hour it's not worth it. Also they do not give out checks, so if you do not have direct deposit with your bank you are stuck with a pay card that has ridiculous atm fees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Distribute work more evenly between employees AND managers. Give out some decent breaks.

    It was okay for a 20-something, very social if the management is cool.
