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

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, no college degree needed, steady pay increases, easy to move between locations.

    Cons

    Work is difficult if you're low on totem pole. Pay isn't great. Management is often uneducated and very brutal sometimes. Advancement within company isn't easy. College degree means little to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees better.

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours
    Chances to work in other departments
    Internship opportunities

    Cons

    They won't write letters of recommendation when you apply for internships that aren't through them
    Little room for promotions
    Pay rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on getting employees motivated about their jobs. Too many workers are stuck at a part time position with little hope of becoming full time. These employees are not motivated about their work and in return they don't do their best at any given task.

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

    Pros

    fast-paced atmosphere. good place for young people to start off. great for part time work, very flexible and lenient.

    Cons

    benefits aren't nearly what people think they are. overnight work is grueling. management plays favorites. management often will delegate their responsibilities, requests, and criticisms to be done by lower management. very hard to move up if you are not working overnights. HR frequently beats around the bush, and offer little to no help for people actively seeking it. not nearly enough credit given to overnight team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there needs to be more focus on how much work the overnight team is doing on a daily basis. they put in the most work in the company, and they are not given enough credit for the hard work they put in. management has absolutely no understanding of what it takes to make the store look "perfect" every day for them. the overnight team breaks their backs day-in and day-out to keep up to the blind standard management enforces. When I say blind, I am simply reiterating the fact that they do not care and do not comprehend what it takes to keep the stores looking pristine every single morning, Compensation and benefits need to be seriously looked into for the overnight teams. We get paid the same amount that people during the day do, but we constantly are putting much more effort and labor than anyone else in the store. This is unacceptable.

    Good play to work if you're in high school or college. Not a place to make a career

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets

    Pros

    Great customer service and they are flexible with crazy schedules

    Cons

    Pay sucks. Getting full-time hours is so hard. Plus, it's very hard to move up through the ranks. During my interview, I mentioned wanting to be management some day. I was told that was doable and would help train me to go that path. Did it happen? Not even close. After years of working very hard, I finally applied for a team leader position within my department. My application never reached HR b/c my department manager wouldn't sign off on 'letting me ' apply for it. Needing her approval to even apply is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like you treat your customers

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets

    Pros

    Healthcare for all part-timers who can manage to achieve an average of 30 hours per week. Employee days where there is free food in the break-room. Family atmosphere

    Cons

    In many stores the bulk of the workers are part-time, it's almost impossible to achieve full time and part-time hours are not guaranteed. There are never enough workers, always shifts to cover and lack of morale among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring more staff to properly achieve and emulate our company values. Learn more what our customers want before making changes. More communication between corporate and store managers, store managers to employees. Honesty from store managers to corporate.
