    Pros

    Family feel, flexible schedule, generous benefits.

    Cons

    There is a lot of programs that have to be executed which takes the customer service employees away from the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scale back on the number of programs, too much going on.

    I worked at Wegmans part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wegmans is a great place to work. The managers really care and there are regular raises based on performance every 6 months. Employees are great to work with. Flexible Hours, they'll work around your schedule if you are a student in college, one of the few companies that will do that. All around great part-time job with lots of growth potential.

    Cons

    There are communication issues occasionally but not a whole lot to complain about for a part-time job. If you're a hard worker, then you'll have no problems.

    I have been working at Wegmans part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Wegmans is a great place to work. The managers really care, and your coworkers do, too. The company really prioritizes its employees because they know happy workers equals happy customers. The company periodically does employee appreciation events and such. Management is also really good at playing to employee strengths. For example, I love to interact with people, so I frequently demo.

    Cons

    Sometimes the clientele are a little bit rude. In our area, many of our customers see themselves as very important and the employees as little better than servants. Also, when it gets busy, sometimes it is challenging to keep track of everything.

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

    Pros

    Good management team, clear path for advancement, a general sense of caring for all employee's. Constantly rated in the top 20 companies to work for in the country.

    Cons

    Retail hours can be hard, not your typical 9-5. Other than that I would say that there really aren't any other complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and drive to deliver incredible customer service to all that shop there.
