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.
