What did Fortune like about Wegmans?
"College students, take note: Almost half of employees are 25 or younger at this family-owned grocery retailer on the East Coast. Flexible scheduling, an employee scholarship program, and stretch assignments help young employees grow within the company, and 66% of jobs are filled through internal promotions."
"Our employees make Wegmans a place where customers feel happy and cared about, and my job is to make sure our employees feel that way, too," says CEO Danny Wegman. "What's most important to us is that our employees feel that Wegmans is a great place to work."
Wegmans is one of only 13 companies that have been on the list since it began in 1998. Last year, it ranked #5.
