The benefits and pay are beyond compare, but it is a 24/7 fast-paced, stressful lifestyle. Wawa is not for the weak!

Current Employee - General Manager

I have been working at Wawa full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Salary, ESOP, Paid time off, community involvement, internal promotions, internal training, opportunities in a variety of jobs, tuition reimbursement, fast-paced, hectic, physically demanding, rewarding, up-lifting culture, leadership that listens. We are given the opportunity to make most decisions as if we were business owners. We are given the tools to succeed.

Cons

24-7, weekends, holidays, entitled customers, demanding expectations, work-life balance. Wawa is a constant on-call situation. We never close, that means everyone from the GM down must work holidays and weekends. This can be difficult to balance with family obligations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help the associates (GM down the ranks) to focus and improve their work-life balance, constant on-call status of GM and AGM. Stores need help with recruiting and retention especially around 3rd shift and 3rd shift management. GMs cannot be in their stores 24/7, sometimes bad things happen and the GM could not have prevented it.
