Upstate NY Grocery Store Ranked Top Place to Work in the Country
This growing retail giant is THE BEST place to work for... and they have the awards to prove it.
When you're searching for a new job, not everyone's first thought would be to go to a grocery store. Sure, it'd be a great first job... but not as a full-time career path right?
Truth be told, this one might just change your mind.
Welcome to Wegmans!
Wegmans is once again named as Fortune's #1 Best Workplaces in Retail, a title they've held since 2016. That's 7 years being recognized nationally as the best place to work for in retail.
It's a title they've taken with pride, with 90% of their employees saying it's a great place to work. Compare that to the U.S. average which is set at a low 57%.

They've created a vibrant atmosphere that not only the employees love, but so do the customers. To them it's a simple concept... if your workers are happy, it'll spread to both the product and the people you serve.
