As a culinarian I find this company is very unique. In a world where the culinary industry is cutthroat, high stress, and unrewarding, Wegmans has taken its core values, applied them to a busy professional kitchen setting, and created an atmosphere filled with fun, excitement, hard work and learning opportunities.
