    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, generally nice workers, scholarship program, cares for employees. Most of the managers are pretty understandable if you need to call out or drop a shift (as long as you don't do it all the time).

    Cons

    Hard to move up- I've been here for about a year and haven't done anything besides cashier
    Cashiering is just downright awful. Standing in the same spot for hours, constantly scanning and bagging if it's busy, and if it's not all you do is stand there... Epitome of boring.
    No discount on products
    Bad pay
    Looked down on as a cashier
    RUDE CUSTOMERS
    Constantly feeling under the microscope- 2 weeks after I ended my register training, a manager called me into her office with a few other people and chastised us because our IPMs (items per minute) were not up to the company goal, 14.5. I had only been a cashier for 2 weeks and they told me I was too slow!

    Advice to Management

    For starters, give your workers a discount. Even if it's small or just for restaurant items. I shouldn't have the pay $10 for a meal that I'm eating while working there (more than an hour of my pay). Don't treat cashiers like they're lesser than you (not everyone does this, just a few people). Also, maybe allow people who have been working hard to try other jobs off register, not just your favorites.

  3. Very accommodating managers, great group of people.

    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 Management

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

    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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great pay, flexible scheduling, very forgiving if you have to call out, co-workers are like family, scholarship program, employees diverse in age, extra pay on Sunday

    Cons

    Having 7 managers all telling you different things; consistantly busy; often not recognized for good work due to mass number of employees; daily reminders of big brother watching; extreme nepotism; managers with too much power; too many managers; confusion of corporate priorities; creepy cult like atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Have less people with the title of managment; please require management to spend a day monthly in the department alongside the little people, especially store and area managers. Stop using scare tactics to herd your employees

  10. Decent culture, but most not great things to say.

    Pros

    Decent work environment . They are willing to make the employees happy and do things in that respect.

    Cons

    The pay is really quite miniscule unless you get to middle mgmt/upper mgmt.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and look into the unbelievable nepotism with some of the leaders.
