    Cons

    I worked a wegmans for 2 years and honestly I can't think of a con other then maybe higher pay.

    Pros

    Benefits: I get 3 weeks Vacation per year starting my 6th year and I've been getting two since the end of my first year and I got one week my first year. 401k and they match 100% up to 6% of your salary. Free $50k life insurance policy. Pay is ok but is higher than most grocers.

    Cons

    Culture is changing. When I first started their was an "air" about the company that really drove me to love it so much. After worked in several stores my current location is by far the worst I've worked in. The management just walks by and if they say hello it's a hey or a courtesy smile. They try way too hard to be fun and exciting. My department alone has seen 10-15 employees quit in the last 6-9 months. If they don't like you they will move you to an area of the store that you may not like to try to get you to quit. They play favorites with their little "it" crowds. Flexible scheduling for full time is non existent. 24/7 open availability is required at all stores. You are scheduled every weekend unless you request off. Must work every holiday. The store is only closed on Christmas Day and doesn't close until 6pm Christmas Eve. Most major holidays the store is either open normal or close a couple ours early. So much for a family friendly environment. So is there any surprise that the new managers being hired are inexperienced young adults that aren't married or have kids, and are young enough to not care if they miss an event because that's what's happening at my store. They just announced that they will be expanding into new markets, states without a store, in the next 3-5 years. Opening multiple stores per year. Average 500 employees per store times say 8 new stores; that's 4,000+ employees. When you figure 10,000+ people apply for a single store how are they going to be able to keep the culture intact while expanding at an extreme rate compared to what they have been doing.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying so hard and really use your focus groups to go undercover to see the real feel of how people think. Get a guy that no one knows in HQ and have him/her go undercover to stores with issues and talk to them and see what they are saying.
