When asked what working at Wawa is like, many associates use words like "special" and say it's like a family. We agree! Our 30,000+ associates value our culture of teamwork and the community-like bond we have with our customers. Our unique environment and passion for what we do has truly made Wawa a family as much as a business.
In addition to making quality food and a great cup of coffee, we have a strong tradition of celebration and recognition. Through formal and informal programs, we enable each associate to acknowledge each other for their hard work and living our values. We also love to throw a party and find any reason to celebrate all the great things happening in our company; whether it’s a store opening, a birthday or even some friendly store to store competition.
We also care strongly about our communities and take pride in working as a team with different organizations that seek to improve and enrich the neighborhoods we serve. Each year, Wawa and The Wawa Foundation , team up with local and national charities to raise donations to benefit organizations within our three main areas of focus: Health, Hunger & Heroes. At the neighborhood level, our store 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!
