This isn't that great of a place to work

Current Employee - Cashier in Buffalo, NY

I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

As a cashier the pros are that there are cool co-workers, flexible shedules, easy to take of time for vacations etc. , they allow tattoos, piercings at least at the store I work at... That's about it for the pros

Cons

The management really isn't that great because they switch mangers at least once a year so it's not consistent at all, their really strict about breaks and sometimes if you don't remind them you won't get one at all. It's busy all the time so your constantly swamped with a long line. It's VERY hard to switch departments because you constantly have to remind your manger. Overall being a cashier at wegmans sucks and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It probably wouldn't be so bad if I was in a different department but yet I'm still stuck as a cashier and I've been working there for 3 years! It

    Pros

    The pay was good for the work, with consistent raises. They are willing to work with your school schedule. They really do care about educating their employees and affecting the community.

    Cons

    As with all retail, you must work holidays and weekends frequently. Some customers can be a pain, but again, that's with all retail..

    Advice to Management

    Keep cultivating talent from within! It's one of Wegman's greatest strengths. Also, make a greater effort to reward your employees with time off during the holidays when possible.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It's an alright place to work, the managers are normally nice, and the customers generally aren't that bad. They also have very nice employee facilities. Schedules are very flexible and they do let you request time off.

    Cons

    No employee discount on prepared foods, so many people that management rarely notices your achievements, performance has little impact on raises (it's primarily based on seniority, not performance).

    Advice to Management

    Base pay off of performance statistics and not off of seniority. Try to grant everyone an equal opportunity, and not favor those you like the "best." Assign your employees to a wider variety of tasks to make work more interesting.
