Pros

Culture is great - the team that you work with is passionate about what they do. Everyone seems to be super nice and always understanding about the job.

Cons

The work - there seems to be a huge amount of work to be done just for an entry level job. The pay almost seems to be not worth the work that they make you do.

Advice to Management

Pay needs to be increased as well as put in some employee discounts. Some of us work there for 8 hour shifts and we still have to pay full price for food for breaks.

    Pros

    Good benefits, when they become available (health care, dental, 401k). Time and a half pay on Sundays. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Expectations for advancement is limited. Upon hire, I was expected to advance into a management position after 6 months (23 years management experience). Big lie! Hired for Night Stock Grocery, placed in Dairy Department with no concern over health (relocated from Florida for this so-called great career opportunity). Lost 30 lbs and was sick on and off for three months. On the job injuries at a high level due to safety neglect. Co-worker wears face mask due to mold in dairy cooler that has been ignored. Worked every weekend for over a year with no ability to take even 1 weekend time off. Once you're on night shift, your stuck there (EVERY co-worker I worked with was turned down at advancing with Wegmans). No sick time available. Wegmans fails to pay for vacation time when taken (financial burden). Too many negative work experiences to list.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some management skills! Be honest with the people you work with.

    Pros

    The people are great. There is plenty of room for advancement if you are motivated to move up. There are all kinds of jobs and the company works hard to find the right fit for dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Not all stores have great management, and once in a store or department with less than stellar management, it can be hard to move into a different store/department. The pay is not great for non-management positions if you only work part-time, however it does jump nicely once you are hired into full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees for what they do well and encourage growth.
