There’s a lot of room for our tech team to try new things and bring them to the table.   Tell us about what it's like to work at Wawa HQ. Wawa is a people-first organization, which means we care about our people over everything else and treat them fairly. The culture is very supportive and collaborative — everyone works together. And, we really give you the opportunity to spread your wings. We have many people who have worked here for 15 to 40 years, which says a lot. You can go to the cafeteria and eat lunch next to the CEO.

Wawa proudly gives back through The Wawa Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation focused on building stronger communities in three areas of health, hunger and everyday heroes.
