    Pros

    laid back
    cool employees
    Very flexible scheduling
    This job is a quality job overall except for the below

    Cons

    Awful benefits for part time! They dock your time for lunch and don't give you any discounts on anything in the cafe for their employees to eat for lunch! They cant afford to eat a meal at work while being docked lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your going to dock lunch pay, then please give your employees a discount on cafe meals. such as half off.

    Pros

    Employees & customers are respected. Great for learning about food and also to develop excellent customer service skills. Management intern opportunities and college scholarships.

    Cons

    Lower end pay. Lots of hours available but lots of availability required. Still retail, still grocery, so opportunity for growth is limited.

    Pros

    The people are great, from managers to HR to fellow employees. You can tell Wegmans puts a lot of work into hiring good customer-focused people. The managers make you feel at home from day one. Free food sometimes and other occasional perks.

    Cons

    Managers move to other stores regularly. Tough to work nights. You might expect to get paid a bit more at Wegmans, but pay is average for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a great job. Keep hiring good people. Maybe offer more opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    Their EAP program is excellent, the values are very good. the benefits are very good as well. and matching the 401K is great.

    Cons

    The advancement in the company isn't like it use to be. Their motto is who we are and empowering. I don't see or have had any of the empowering in a while and the who we are I feel only works for the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and help them grow. don't stifle them and make them feel useless. I'm seeing that management go above and beyond helping the younger kids trying to move up and not the more experience employee's who have been trying to move ahead.
