    Pros

    Very stable job. Usually get two raises every year to around five dollars extra then when you started. Decent health insurance. Vacation time increases the longer you're there. Overall good place to work.

    Cons

    Could have better equipment like heated gloves for if you work in the freezer. I heard it gets really hot in grocery in the summer.

    Advice to Management

    I know a lot of people don't like the odd shift times and probably should pay more for being night shift.

    Pros

    Good coworkers, good benefits, clean stores, work can be fun, used to be family friendly and better work/life balance when Bob Wegman was still running the company. Ok for entry level employment, in fact that is what they're better at, but don't expect to go very far unless you fit their "image."

    Cons

    Have gotten too big for their britches; the top 100 employers list is a joke - they pay to be included in that survey. Plenty of other companies that don't pay to be included are really great employers too. Too concerned with image, and it drives all their business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Your people make you who they are so trust them more and don't play such favorites with the chosen few.

    Pros

    You will get to work in amazing facilities with state of the art equipment, great people willing to teach and help and inumerable amounts of ingredients and foods rarely found in private sector

    Cons

    Copy-cat philosophy to all their endevours. Trend-following, not setting. Creativity and idea presentation not existent.

    Advice to Management

    Credible people needed to expand concepts. "Buying" a face or sending some one to Italy will not transform into a craft.

    Pros

    I have been working at Wegmans for 5 years now and have nothing but great things to say about the company. Nice co-workers, awesome bosses/coordinators, and great all-over atmosphere. Other employees are always so friendly whether in your own department or working in another assisting you. If you can get hired here, you're in with the best and you won't regret it.

    Cons

    Besides a few miserable customers during your day (which happens everywhere no matter what because well....people), I have no complaints!
