    I have been working at Wegmans full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The sky is the limit when it comes to training and learning new things
    Very supportive of creativity
    They will go above and beyond when an employee is in need professionally or personally.

    Cons

    Very tough to move from stores to corporate or vice versa
    Job posting system needs some retooling, should go back to promoting within department sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's good to take a chance on promoting people. They used to be big on stories of cashiers becoming executives by working through the levels, now they want degrees for every job above customer service and are hiring more from outside first.

    Pros

    They are very flexible and accommodating and flexible when it comes to schedules. A great place to work for high school, college, or people with families.

    Cons

    The management. When you have put in your time (7 years to be exact) with ideal performance, your pay compensation does not reflect it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to figure it out. Often there are too many chiefs, and not enough Indians.

    This is a very good company, although I wish they would change the way that promotions are handled.

    I have been working at Wegmans part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Getting a job at Wegmans is very difficult. You need to go through three separate interviews, and the acceptance rate is approximately 5%. With such a low acceptance rate, though, the quality of the employees is stellar. Co-workers are very intelligent and friendly on the whole. While the work itself can be somewhat repetitive, co-workers make Wegmans a very enjoyable place to work. Once hired, job security is as good as you will find in any industry.

    Cons

    Wegmans needs to change the way that people are promoted to managers. Rather than going through an interview process like employees do, people are handpicked for promotions. Often times, promotions are given based on who you know rather than on merit, and sometimes highly talented people are left behind. I have read in quite a few reviews that there is somewhat of a clique mentality among management, and I have seen this to an extent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the method in which promotions are handled.

    I have been working at Wegmans part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It has a positive work environment with great coworkers. Flexible with college students only working part of the year. It is easy to get time off as long you give adequate notice. Regular 6-month raises are in place and sometimes other raises too.

    Cons

    There is an inconsistent schedule with some late hours, although it is posted well in advance. Communication is sometimes lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Wegmans part-time

    Pros

    Flexibility in scheduling; Management easy to get along with; High moral standards and company values; Appreciation to both customers and employees alike

    Cons

    Too corporal for my taste; Not as family-oriented to employees as they are to customers; Lack of team-structure (Everybody's out for themselves)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team-Building training can be something to look into; Try to find a balance between treating employees like family to treating them like business partners.
