Wegmans again lands No. 2 spot on Fortune’s best workplaces list
For the 21st time, Rochester, N.Y.-based Wegmans Food Markets has earned a position on Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” annual list, this year ranking second as it did in 2017. No other supermarket chains are near the top of the list.
