I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time

Pros

The stores are clean and well organized.Management tries to work with the associates available times.Cross training in different sections is a great reason if you look for advance in the store.

Cons

Working holidays and weekends.As a front end cashier you never get to attend the stretches that are so much pushed by Wegmans management to help with injuries to the back or shoulders.Sometimes the front end supervisor forget you have a break coming.And the break system is if working 5 hrs.you get a 15min paid break but working 6hrs. the cashier has to take a 30 min.lunch and this is not paid.

Advice to Management

Dress code needs to be more enforced with the younger associate.Front end leaders need to help out with bagging.The job is very stress full.The lunch break system need a up date giving 15mi breaks after four hours working and the 30 min lunch after six hours should be optional to a part time cashier.The lunch is for 8 hrs. If someone works less hours this feels like I give my time to the company.

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time

    Pros

    Fairly low pressure environment, pay is good especially for a recent college grad. Somewhat flexible schedule. Growing company and literally no chance of getting fired.

    Cons

    Not much room to advance also seems like only requirement to promote is to become friends with your boss since Wegmans has no performance metric in place.

    Advice to Management

    Stop turning a blind eye to underperforming and lazy managers.

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wegmans is a company that actually believes in the values it preaches about doing the right thing for people, allowing a work/life balance, and placing family needs above your work when needed. Seemingly anywhere you go with this company you find kind, supportive folks to engage you and willingly offer to help you. Most people who work for Wegmans realize what a unique company it is and the benefits of a place that really cares about the individual and treats people the right way. Wegmans is privately held but the family that owns it takes a salary and reinvests the remaining profits back into the company. This means steady, manageable growth without the "profits or perish" approach required for a publicly traded company. There are 3-4 new stores opened each year in growing markets, and plenty of room for advancement through a steady stream of new job openings in virtually all business units.

    Cons

    The low pressure, seek-to-understand management that is prevalent in this company can be great for the individual, but also means the performance of bottom performers is often overlooked or ignored completely. Though the company can make rapid changes when needed or useful, some large-scale decisions are made by a select group at the top and don't always factor in advice from lower rungs of the organization. This leads to some inefficiencies that are difficult if impossible to overcome, and some of these decisions last for years. This also may be attributed to the privately held status of the company, as there is little incentive to remove these inefficiencies if your budget is acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on increased feedback. Setting up feedback loops from the top of the organization down to entry level employees would help address the areas of improvement and further strengthen morale.
