    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They care about your well being by offering free health screens every year. They pay better than most other retail establishments.

    Cons

    In order to quality for health benefits as part timer, one would have to average 30 hours per week.

    Good play to work if you're in high school or college. Not a place to make a career

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets

    Pros

    Great customer service and they are flexible with crazy schedules

    Cons

    Pay sucks. Getting full-time hours is so hard. Plus, it's very hard to move up through the ranks. During my interview, I mentioned wanting to be management some day. I was told that was doable and would help train me to go that path. Did it happen? Not even close. After years of working very hard, I finally applied for a team leader position within my department. My application never reached HR b/c my department manager wouldn't sign off on 'letting me ' apply for it. Needing her approval to even apply is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like you treat your customers

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets

    Pros

    Work/life balance, PPO benefits, which can be good if you are healthy, but not so good if you need constant medical treatment (like having toddlers during cold/flu season!), hours are good since it is a supermarket

    Cons

    See the benefits review in the "pros" section. Must use Wegman's pharmacy for prescription meds. This sounds great, but if you are not working that day and suddenly need a prescription filled and do not live near a Wegmans, it's not so good. Driving over 30 min. to your store to pick up a baby's antibiotic medication stinks! However, if you live near the store, then it must be wonderful!

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Thorough training, strong company values, college scholarship opportunities, career advancement opportunities from within the company, health and safety awareness programs

    Cons

    Micromanaging by upper level management, favoritism for promotions, disconnect between store management and part-time employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall doing a great job with the company and empowering their employees to progress within the company if they choose to do so. However, I believe there is a disconnect between store management and their part-time employees that needs to improve if they wish to retain their young talent in the long-term.

    Pros

    part time schedule flexibility, employee discounts through other companies, overall friendly family atmosphere, scholarship program

    Cons

    customer interaction can prove to be challenging, work is very easy and can become boring after awhile, late hours on some holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stick to the company values that are plastered all over the store. Nobody likes to work for someone that is only in it for themselves

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job security. The ability to work a set schedule. However that could change based on who your manager is and if they like you.

    Cons

    No accountability for people not doing there job. Management changes too often so there is no constancy in departments regarding quality and products. Everyone only cares about them self and trying to get to the top. Which is already top heavy. It's not a family oriented company anymore. The store manager doesn't even talk to the employees who work on the floor- walks right by to talk with others on their level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People should be promoted based on their hard work and dedication, and knowledge of products and their department, not based on politics and who is friends with who. So sad this company has lost so many of its real values. Customers are even starting to notice. You can only buy your way to the top of some surveys. We will see where we really stand when the employee based one comes to light

    Pros

    Healthcare for all part-timers who can manage to achieve an average of 30 hours per week. Employee days where there is free food in the break-room. Family atmosphere

    Cons

    In many stores the bulk of the workers are part-time, it's almost impossible to achieve full time and part-time hours are not guaranteed. There are never enough workers, always shifts to cover and lack of morale among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring more staff to properly achieve and emulate our company values. Learn more what our customers want before making changes. More communication between corporate and store managers, store managers to employees. Honesty from store managers to corporate.
