    Epic company!

    Produce Team Leader (Current Employee)
    Chestnut Hill, MA

    ProsEvery day you come to work, it's like you are coming to see your family. There's laughter, purpose, values, amazing people and so many chances for growth in New Markets.

    ConsAt the end of the day we are a grocery store so entry level pay can be a bit on the lighter side but definitely more than any other grocery chain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep expanding up and down the east coast :)

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awesome Experience with Awesome People

    Produce Customer Service (Former Employee)
    Fairfax, VA

    ProsManagement is great, pay is better than most in the industry, get paid time-and-a-half for overtime and on Sundays, 60 cent raise per 6 months (for first few years), opportunities to move up.

    ConsPressured work (especially in the stores in some more populated areas), customers are not always friendly, work hours are tough if expected to come in every morning at 4 AM or everynight at 10 PM (early morning/night shifts common).

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up and don't forget where you started!

    Customer Service

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Syracuse, NY

    ProsThe culture and people of the company were great. It truly was a great starting point as a young adult developing a career.

    ConsThere are very few cons that I can provide about Wegmans. As a whole I was more than satisfied with the company. However, the worse part was dealing with ungrateful customers on occasion.

    Wegmans Is a good place to work

    Department Manager (Former Employee)
    New Philadelphia, PA

    ProsMy experience was positive and I had the pleasure of working with some of the nicest people I've met in my life.

    ConsSimplify your review system. I do them more efficiently, they should be catagorized, then have a grading system or similiar. Then a brief summary after each catagory.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck your managers more; talk to them. Give them feedback on their performance.

    Great Place to Work

    Cashier (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsWonderful management and great opportunities. Working at Wegmans was the perfect part-time job while in high school, had I not moved out of the area, I would have continued to work there.

    ConsThey didn't have any store where I moved, so there were no employment opportunities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great places to work. Flexible hours

    Meat/Dairy/Frozen Associate (Former Employee)
    Syracuse, NY

    ProsFlexible Hours
    Great employees
    stable environment
    Thriving company where no layoffs on the horizon
    Opportunity for scholarships if you are in school.

    ConsNot very good pay unless you are there for a quite a while. Not much room for advancement. But otherwise a great place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to expand nationwide so customers can experience the greatness of this store for all of its options.
