Wegmans, Nugget, Publix among best Millennial workplaces

​Wegmans Food Markets (No. 40), Nugget Market (62), Publix Super Markets (74) and Whole Foods Market (90) appear on Fortune's second annual 100 Best Workplace for Millennials list.

The rankings are based solely on employee feedback and selected from a database of 600 companies that have been certified by Great Places to Work.

With 92,877 Millennial employees, Publix topped the list of workplaces when ranked by number of Millennial workers, followed by Whole Foods Market at 52,513. Wegmans was No. 5 with 25,287 Millennial employees.

Fortune quoted one Millennial employee of Wegmans who said, “Wegmans is very understanding about scheduling. I am a full-time student at a school two hours away from my home store. Wegmans was able to help me maintain my hours over the school year and even help me find a store closer to school with an opening in my department.”

A member of Gen Y who works at Nugget Market noted a family-type of atmosphere, with Fortune quoting them as saying, “The associates here at Nugget really do view each other as members of an extended family. This being said, coming into work is always a fun and safe experience because associates really do care about one another. The management team is also very approachable and they do not micromanage; each person has opportunity to fail or succeed on their own which is necessary to grow.”

At Publix there are opportunities for advancement, according to one respondent, who said, “I think it’s great that they only promote within the company, giving everyone a fair chance at building a career with the company no matter what your schooling background is or where you’ve previously worked.”

Digital marketing company Elite SEM, Quicken Loans and design firm Kimley-Horn, took the top three spots, respectively.
