Wegmans ranks No. 12 on Fortune's best places to work list

Rochester Business Journal
January 16, 2014

Wegmans Food Markets Inc. has been named to Fortune magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” for the 17th consecutive year.

The family-owned supermarket chain ranked No. 12 this year, down from No. 5 in 2013.

Wegmans is one of 13 companies that have been on the list since 1998 and thereby is recognized as a 2014 Best Company All Star.

“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,” said CEO Danny Wegman.  “What’s most important to us is that our employees feel that Wegmans is a great place to work.”

Fortune described Wegmans in a statement: “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 percent of jobs are filled through internal promotions.”
