New York State Retail Company Voted One of the Best Places to Work

Fortune once again rated its best companies to work for in 2022, and a company based just outside New York State had once again made the top 3.

Even at a time some financial experts have dubbed The big resignation, where millions of Americans quit their jobs, this business continues to thrive. In fact, this grocery chain has ranked among the top 100 companies to work for every year since the list was created in 1998.

Fortune surveyed more than 4 million workers across the country using a 60-question workplace survey. It could mean a lot of things to employees, including the benefits of their job, how they’re treated, opportunities for professional growth, and overall confidence. Once again, Wegmans Food Markets Inc. of Rochester scored very high. Wegmans was ranked #3 company to work for by employees. They ranked only behind Cisco Systems and Hilton in this year’s survey.

This is yet another brilliant review in a long line of accolades for Wegmans. A 2019 survey by Axios and Harris found that Wegmans ranks among the best companies for consumers and employees in the United States. If you think about it, they beat out some very well-known companies, such as Amazon, LL Bean, and Walt Disney to earn the accolade.

Although you can find Wegmans in the southern part, Finger Lakes, and in the western part of the state, there aren’t really any in the Hudson Valley. Why is that? In 2020, Wegmans opened his new store in Harrison to a huge crowd, who had waited years for the Westchester spot to finally open. And while it’s technically the lower part of the Hudson Valley, it’s still quite a long way for those in places like Poughkeepsie, Newburgh, or Kingston.

Wegmans’ first New York location opened in the Brooklyn Navy Yards in October 2019. Other than that, you’ll have to travel to Pennsylvania to find one.
