    Pros

    Friendly work environment
    Positive interactions with management
    Very flexible with scheduling around your availability
    Variety of cross training opportunities are available

    Cons

    There are not really any cons that I can think of for working here. The only real problem I had was with a specific employee and not the company as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain engaging with employees

    Pros

    Every manager I have had has actually listened to my availability, they don't just take it as a suggestion. My managers are invested in my success and future at Wegmans.

    Cons

    They over hire and part timers do not get enough hours. Recruiting is off base with the acual needs of the departments. In order to get 30 hours a week I must work 6 days a week. Wegmans won't fire incompetent people. Full time position openings are rare, unless you want to move to a new market...and I for one would never relocate for such low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to cut full time positions in Rochester. That's not what investment and commitment to a city that has made you so successful looks like.

    Pros

    Wegmans is an easy company to get passionate about and love. Plus they hire great people. Put those two together and you've got magic.

    Pros

    Caring, empowering, and willing to get you where you want to go. Cross training is recommended and beneficial for individual growth.

    Cons

    The retail schedule is tough! It's not the company, it's the industry. However, Wegmans cares about a work life balance and will work around conflicts for scheduling.
