In Fortune Magazine’s annual ranking of the “100 Best Companies To Work For” list, local grocery chain Wegmans again finished near the top of the list. The 2008 list places Wegmans as the third best company to work for in America. This follows their #1 ranking in 2005 and their second place ranking in 2006. Wegmans has appeared on the list every year since its initial publication in 1998 and has ranked among the top 10 for six consecutive years.

“Every one of our employees and our customers should stand up and take a bow, because together they make Wegmans a special place,” says CEO Danny Wegman. Whenever I’m in one of our stores, customers stop to tell me how much they appreciate our employees. You can imagine how great that makes our people feel and why they enjoy coming to work everyday.”

The company, headquartered in Rochester with stores throughout the Northeast, employs 37,602 workers which was a near 6% increase over last year.

Founded in 1916, Wegmans has prioritized quality employee relationships as a driver for growth and customer loyalty. Company founder Robert Wegman once said that “Great customer service begins with treating our own employees right. If our people feel valued and supported, they will give their best to our customers.” This mantra is repeated by many of their employees as demonstrated in this video from CNNMoney.

According to the survey, the most common job for salaried employees was Store Department Manager with an average salary of $49,411 and the most common job for hourly employees was customer service with an average salary of $27,414.
