    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    When I started, I met everyone...and I mean everyone. Store manager, assistant SMs, team leads, cooks, chefs, etc. I even met Danny and Coleen when they came for Christmas. It's one big family. I feel like this company is my home. And that's amazing. Lots of advancement opportunities lie on my horizon, and nobody can stop you from moving up!

    Cons

    Sometimes, like all families, you get worn out by your coworkers. They may be having a bad day, or you might. Sometimes customers may be snooty, but these are normal downs of having any job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It'd be great to see my Perishables manager more often. I have many ideas but nobody with the power to help make them happen.

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Without a doubt if you're looking for self actualization this is an excellent place to work. Working conditions are always great, to be very busy and hectic but great!

    Cons

    Very few complaints it's very hard complain about working conditions where the cleanliness and environment is so conducive to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They can possibly listen little better and scream some other upper managers better but overall for the sheer volume is going to get some bad managers.

    -jipped me out of my scholarship because of silly bureaucratic stuff.
