    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They offer decent benefits to part-timers. The environment is good. I made many long time friends while working there. Training opportunities are vast.

    Cons

    There are not that many full-time opportunities. Advancement seems to be based on experience most times, although they will let you transfer from department to department to learn more skills.

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

    Pros

    Your co-workers will be, for the most part, dedicated and passionate individuals. They were easily the highlight of my experience there.

    Cons

    With no exceptions, the work is dull and boring. There is very little room to climb the corporate ladder, but plenty to expand your horizons as a peon.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that most people know their jobs far better than you do. Share more about overall goals and less about how to do your job.
