    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (Buffalo, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online after a friend of mine had recommended Wegmans as a great place to work. Exactly two weeks after I submitted my application, I received an email asking my availability to set up a phone interview. 4 days later, I had my phone interview. Basic questions mostly and some situational. The interview lasted approximately 30 minutes. I was told I would receive a call within the week if I was selected to proceed in the interview process. I was actually called later that same day to set up a second interview in-store. I was told when I arrived for my second interview that it would be conducted with 2 individuals from the department. I never felt rushed to answer and they both were very polite and friendly. The interview lasted approximately 1 hour. I was then given a tour of part of the store by the Sous Chef, which was cool. The same woman that conducted my phone interview called the next day to offer me a position. After my background check, I will be attending orientation!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wegmans Food Markets in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and about one week later I received an email to set up a phone interview. There were a lot of applicants, so it took a while until they could set up an interview for a few a days later. They asked very simple questions about customer service and previous experience. They said they would call or email me in the next 5-7 days and I received a call 5 days later asking to set up an in-person interview. I'll update once I have finished that interview.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Wegmans Food Markets in July 2015.

    Interview

    I went in during the first day of open interviews. The first interview was about 30 minutes; basic questions and more specific ones as well. The person interviewing me felt like I would be a good fit and I was given the second interview the same day. The second interview was many more questions on situations and how I would respond. The second person who interviewed me said that I would either receive a rejection email within the next couple of weeks or a call saying I got the job. I received a job offer call the day after my interview. Very smooth, good atmosphere, nice people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Wegmans Food Markets.

    Interview

    I did not have a good experience. Was basically asked to repeat the same information I gave online. I think honestly, for a job that pays less than $10 an hour out of the gate, it's a little ridiculous that the HR person cared so much about why you disliked/liked or left a job from six years ago. I've had interviews for professional positions that didn't want to drill so far into your past or care. I was excited to work here because of how great a company it is, but I think they need to keep your employment history to last three employers or the last five years and give HR less say in the process. I felt silly having to give up my history for the last 10 years.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (North Wales, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    They called me a couple days after submitting my application and asked if I was interested in talking about my application. However, when I called they told me they would look over my submittions and my availability and that was all. I then received an email that I was not considered for any of the 4 positions. I believe from my best guess is because I either have no job experience or since I would be cutting down my days to only weekends for college after the summer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (Amherst, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied around the middle of May and got contacted through email to schedule a phone interview. I called a few times but the lady I needed to talk to was out of the office so I decided to email her instead, which we then used email to further schedule my interview. My phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and there was a lot of basic questions asked about why I wanted to work for the company and how they could benefit from hiring me. The second part of the application process, the in-person interview, didn't happen till earlier this week. So the whole process will have taken about two months; I have learned that the position I originally applied for was filled when I submitted the application and was only contacted once another position became available. The in-person interview was a very comfortable experience. I was interviewed by two ladies, a human resource manager and the manager of the department I would be working for. They took me into the back room early and the interview lasted approximately 30-40 minutes. Overall it was a fairly easy interview. At the end they said it would take about a week, week and a half for them to get back to me but the main human resource manager contacted me the very next day with a job offer. Basically, if you think you interview went well, it probably did.
