    Pros

    Good pay and hours, friendly co-workers, customers and management. Good benefits, vacation and holiday pay.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be difficult to move to a different department and is hard to advance upward in the company in a reasonable amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is interested in becoming a manger they should take it a little more seriously. Usually people that are really interested in a position will do a good job.

    Pros

    - Above average pay for monotonous, mind-numbing warehouse labor that takes little to no intelligence to complete

    - Flexible scheduling and very good work/life balance

    - Reputable name

    Cons

    - Most team leaders are unfit to lead

    - Majority of employees lack post-secondary education

    - Culture and social environment is on par with a high school (see above)

    - Offensively micromanged

    Advice to Management

    I worked here for one summer during college. Mind you, this was 2/3 years ago so I'm not sure if much has changed. When it comes down to it, this place is awful. The work is unbearably boring and the atmosphere is outright pathetic (ie. people gossiping, sleeping with one another). I don't have any advice to management; they would not heed it anyway.

    Pros

    My he nice thing about Wegmans is the culture and philosophy. You can also make your own schedule and it is very flexible.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the pay isn't that great. As a part time worker you do not get access to the benefits.

    Pros

    Big and pretty store that is kept clean for the most part. A lot of things to choose from even if the price is not always the best.
    There is a raise system in place so you know after x amount of time, you are getting x amount raise.
    They celebrate monthly birthdays and organize employee appreciation day once a month and provide free breakfast. Option to earn free meals from customers reviews
    Some STL really care and will help you achieve your goals

    Cons

    Prices are not affordable. And there is no employee discount though we are their top customers (get paid and paycheck go right back to them, pay for meals while working or grocery when leaving for convenience)
    No fairness sometimes while resolving issues because of taking sides (inner circle is always right)
    Spoiled customers to the point that they request an inimmagible level of service and expect to get free things and everything they want because they've made an exception for them once. Customers treat employees like their maids or servant and bluntly argue that's why they come to Wegmans.
    It's hard to grow if you are not in the inner circle

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing the people and really let them take charge and make decisions like it's stated in your core values: Empowerement.
    Share information with everybody. Don't keep an inner circle and consider the rest the outsiders. Information is key to success, and without it we are sent to fail.
    There's too much bureaucracy
    Don't just say you care about your people, show it. Not just to the inner circle or play fovoritism but treat everyone equally.

    Pros

    Good starting pay and benefits; Lax culture depending on what department you work for and your manager/team leader.

    Cons

    Some locations are busier so you'll be overworked and understaffed; little recognition for going above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    None so far
