    I have been working at Wawa full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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

    I worked at Wawa

    Pros

    Opportunity to rise up and eventually work in corporate.
    Cool programs for students/recent grads
    Cool rewards program for going above and beyond (not extraordinary but really cool small gifts like movie tickets or bigger depending on points you earn.)

    Cons

    Work environment depends on who you work with (other CSA's). Sometimes did not like working with some of the other CSA's at the store I worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to show up more than when doing inspections.
    Also talk to in store management about making sure all employees are cross trained and not stuck in one specific section of the store.

    Pros

    Multiple locations, company benefits

    Cons

    Treated poorly, mid level store management is doing the work of 3 associates. Associates are very disrespectful to management especially external hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Analyze labor cost versus customer satisfaction and quality. Cutting labor significantly impacts customer service and quality. Train employees on your core values.
