The Wawa application is pretty simple and straightforward, though it is a little bit lengthy. You should plan on spending at least 45 minutes completing it.
During the Wawa application process, you will need to provide the following pieces of information: name, address, phone number, email address, social security number, work history, education, transportation, schedule availability, and age. Before you begin the application, you should take a moment to make sure that you have all of this information on hand. Not only will preparing this information help you complete the application as quickly as possible, it will also ensure that you don't get stuck on a part of the application (and have it time out as a result).
During the application process, you will need to take an assessment. The assessment is a series of questions designed to help Wawa determine if you would make a good fit for their company. We estimate that the assessment will take most people 20-30 minutes to complete. We recommend that you don't begin the assessment until you will have enough time to complete it in one sitting.
To give you an idea of what to expect from the assessment, here are a few sample questions:
"What adjective best describes you at work?"
"When at work I..."
"The company you work for has just created a new policy that you disagree with. Which of the following would you most likely do?"
"You are good at juggling more than one thing at the same time"
While it's always important to answer the assessment questions honestly, there may be times where you aren't exactly sure how you respond to a particular situation. The question may not provide enough detail, or your response would depend on some factors that aren't outlined in the question. In those cases, think about why they have decided to answer that question. What are they trying to learn about you?
Also, strong answers are generally preferred over weak or neutral answers. Strongly disagreeing or strongly agreeing with a statement will give Wawa a much better idea of who you are than a neutral answer would.
By submitting the Wawa application, you are consenting to a pre-employment background check. Any employment offer that you receive from Wawa will be contingent upon passing this background check.
How long does Wawa keep applications on file?
Wawa keeps all applications on file for four years, but you will only remain in consideration for 60 days after you submit your application. If you have not heard back within 60 days, you will need to submit another application if you want to remain in consideration.
Wawa does not provide automatic application updates at this time. You will need to contact the hiring manager directly if you have already applied and would like to find out where you stand.
Wawa is an equal opportunity employer.
