Consistent work, little management, low standards
A typical day depends on position, but involves a constant flow of work through a responsibilities list between working with customers, often with little to no help as shifts are run as skeleton crews, with no backup plans for call outs. While the constant work is good, there is little to no management oversight, as they are usually preoccupied, and as such the environment allows employees to do little to no work. Blame for when things don't get done is often shifted, usually to other shifts and people not responsible for the work. This means that the work continues to not get done as no one feels it is their responsibility. When hired, they say they exclusively promote from within, but they often hire management from outside the company, providing little training on responsibilities, and leave people who are not prepared for the role in charge of shifts or the store as a whole. While there is a typically upbeat atmosphere around the store, it is at the cost of accomplishing basic, necessary tasks. After one year of full-time work, you can apply for health insurance, of which they have a good selection of coverage including dental and vision, however that is the extent of the benefits. The employee discount can only be used on the clock, only on a select group of Wawa brand items, and is 35%, 50% if it falls on an even smaller list of items. Outside of this, even starting to eat before paying results in threats of termination of employment.
