  • I would probably change the benefit eligibility date to 6 months after hire instead of one year.

What I like about the company

I really love working for Wawa. The management team and coworkers that I work with daily know how to come together and get things done will still embracing our customers with a warm friendly Wawa family welcome and fast service. Management thrives on associates being successful and growing with the company, and will provide you all the training and knowledge of the company you need to do your job. GOTTA LOVE WAWA!

What I dislike about the company

Only thing that I can say that I disapprove of is the time frame that new associates have to wait in order to get health benefits.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have a scoring system for promotions that incorporates actual on the job skills necessary for promotion, rather than just a straight-forward interview that can get someone promoted based off of their ability to talk themselves up.

What I like about the company

Company has an associates in need fund that employees can donate to and in times of extreme need, an associate dealing with a hardship can request for financial assistance from this fund. I've personally seen it used to help an associate deal with the unkown costs of funeral arrangements

What I dislike about the company

-Could use a more structured way of promoting internally. Not everyone that gets promoted is deserving of such, and those that don't get promoted often get cast aside.

  • I think the attendance policy could be a little different. People can be held accountable for calling out no matter what the circumstance.

What I like about the company

Wawa not only cares about their associates, but they care about the communities in which they operate. The organization is really big on giving back whether it is through charity events, collecting donations for a family need, or just being there for their everyday customers. Wawa is very involved with numerous charities as an organization such as American Red Cross, JDRF, & Check Out Hunger just to name a few. They have a unique culture that can't be found anywhere else. The pay is competitive and the ESOP is unreal. I could not imagine myself working anywhere else!

What I dislike about the company

Communication could be better across the board. Additionally, more vacation time for associates. They work just as hard as the management teams most days, but receive less paid time off.
