If you’re looking for the best industry to work in, you could do a lot worse than pick retail as a career based on Fortune’s 100 Best Places to Work List.

Among those making this year’s list were:

2 – Container Store 

10 – Wegmans Food Markets 

30 – Stew Leonard’s 

32 – Whole Foods Market 

47 – Starbucks 

63 – LensCrafters

71 – Ukrop’s Super Markets

73 – REI

87 – Publix Super Markets

92 – Nordstrom

Moderator’s Comment: Two Questions–

  1. Are “happier” companies more productive?

  2. Are there any retailers you would have added or
    removed from the Fortune list?

We wouldn’t have been surprised if either The Guitar Center
or Trader Joe’s was on the list.
