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

    Pros

    opportunities abound and friendly co-workers

    Cons

    opportunities are numerous for advancement but most times positions are already filled when posted....it has become more of who you know than what you know.....
    inconsistencies in policy depending on departments in the stores and at the corporate level.....
    directly target older, higher paid employees for "early retirement - termination"
    there was an effort about 10 years ago to promote more women and persons of color to upper management since those positions were predominately filled by white men....it has reverted back to white men over women and persons of color with superior experience and education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the values you inundate the public with...."WE CARE".....yes, but .only for the chosen....

    Current Employee - Floral Customer Service

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

    Pros

    When first starting as a cashier I hated the job because customers complain about legit everything and anything. However, when moving to floral I realized this is seriously the best company to work for. Once you get a chance to be apart of a department, mangers and co workers start to treat you as a somebody rather than a nobody when on cashier. Also the pay increase every 6 months is great and the flexibility with hours is amazing! After moving for college I'm so sad to not be able to work there right now. Trying to find a new job for the time being that will be flexible and pay me the same isn't all that easy. I miss Wegmans!

    Cons

    First starting as a cashier
    Having back pain from cashiering
