Excellent Company
Customer Service (Current Employee), West Chester, PAMarch 25, 2014
This company has many opportunities for motivated individuals to move up the career ladder. A typical day is first evaluate what you will need for your upcoming shift, follow guidelines to make sure you have what will be needed in place. Take care of each individual that comes into the store according to their needs. Make sure you have cleaned up after – more... yourself and make the store as prepared as possible for the next shift. The biggest demand is making sure to manage your time well, there are certain things that must always get completed, and there is the unknown that always comes when working with the public. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the customers, keeping them coming back each day for a positive experience. The management team is quite capable and willing to make changes for the good of the company and its customers. The co-workers are hard working individuals, doing their best in a high passed work environment. – less

It's a good place to work, depending on your work ethic.
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Bel Air, MDMarch 15, 2014
Pros: annual raises, chance to move up in management
Cons: depending on location, bad management and wages.
I have worked for Wawa for 2 years now and it's been rough at times, but there's one thing you can always get, hours. They always need someone to pick up hours every week. The problem that I have with Wawa is that I was started at a very minuscule wage compared to others, so even though I have been there for 2 years, people are starting out at a higher – more... wage than I am currently making. You do get an annual raise, so as long as you actually try and do well with the job, you should be compensated accordingly. The management is also kind of iffy. Since I've worked there, I've had multiple managers that I have liked and enjoyed working with, but they always end up getting bullied by the higher up management until they quit. I'm sure that is also dependent on the store you would be working at, but it is worrisome to me. – less

I love working for wawa. I enjoy being a part of peoples everyday lives and bringing smiles to their faces. wawa is a very fun place.

The hardest part of this job is dealing with unruly, rude customers. I take care of my associates and am quick to show rude customers the door, pending their level of misbehavior. – less
