When asked what working at Wawa is like, many associates use words like "special" and say it's like a family. We agree! Our 22,000+ associates value our culture of teamwork and the family-like bond we have with customers. In fact, our unique culture of teamwork, support, and pride has made Wawa a family as much as a business organization.
Wawa associates company-wide have a personal connection with their customers and are proud to work for a Company that is known for the quality of their products and their people.

We care about our communities and take pride in working as a team with community and charity organizations that seek to improve and enrich the neighborhoods we serve. Each year, Wawa, our associates, and our customers team up with local and national charities to raise more than $5 million in donations to benefit organizations like the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the American Red Cross, local food banks, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation Race for the Cure. At the neighborhood level, our associates get involved in important local causes and events. We believe that part of giving back is being a good neighbor, and we live this in and out of our stores.
A Message from Our CEO
This is an exciting time to be a part of the Wawa Family!
In April 2014 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary in the retail business! As I reflect on this meaningful milestone, it’s amazing to see how the company has grown and evolved since opening our first store in 1964. But there is one thing that hasn’t changed: our associates’ commitment to our values, and their passion to create the best customer experience possible.
Today, we continue to grow, opening stores throughout the Mid-Atlantic market as well as our continued expansion in Florida. This growth cannot happen without our wonderful associates who are deliver our purpose of, Fulfilling Lives, Every Day. Our associates have created a living, breathing brand that has defined the Wawa Way for 50 years.
It all starts here, with the person applying for a job at their local Wawa or in our corporate office. The customer’s experience is created and delivered in our stores, with the daily face-to-face interactions of our associates. It’s not an easy job, it can be fast paced, and our associates do it exceptionally well, day in and day out. I am delighted you are thinking about joining the Wawa Family. Thank you so much for considering us in your job search for a new career!
