    Unless you are willing to relocate, or are from New York, there is a limited and slow growth potential.

    Pros

    If you are part of the right clique, its pleasant. If you aren't you won't there too long. Be popular and well liked, or you will not have a good time.

    Cons

    Low pay. Even the team leaders in our division made ridiculously low money for what tasks were required from them.

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Corporate culture is excellent. You really get a sense that the company cares about you.
    - Work is meaningful, and employees have the ability to directly impact the company's mission
    - Managers notice talent and provide appropriate projects to ensure that work remains challenging.

    Cons

    - Pay can be on the lower side for IT professions
    - Company is medium sized, so growth opportunities are naturally constrained by the companies size. However, this will get better as the company experiences continued growth.

    Current Employee - Barista/Cashier in Sterling, VA

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits if you work the right amount of hours
    Discount packages for gym memberships and cell phone services
    Two pay raises a year
    Most employees are really nice and cool.
    You can change departments
    Hire within
    Scholarships
    Employee Appreciation Days ( Free Food)
    Management training for employees looking to gain management training.

    Cons

    Front-end managers are some of the worst people I have ever met with exception to front end manager trainees. ( Just avoid being a cashier or customer service at all costs)
    You can go without a team leader for 2-3 months if the current one quits. They load other employees with the job with no official title until they find a person to take the position. More workload for less pay.
    Stalker behaviors from an employee in shipping, freaks me out so bad that I can't go in when he's working.
    Store manager treats Latino employees horribly. ( Denying continued presence on the payroll when an employee had to go back to school. Firing another employee for being late, an offense that most employees get away with.)
    Moving employees into departments that doesn't work well for them. ( They moved a pregnant woman into the Coffee Shop for 5 am shifts when she had severe morning sickness. She was late for every single one of her shifts delaying customers from getting food and coffee.
    Store manager is void of any personality and hates socializing with anyone. He's almost like a robot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRAIN THE FRONT END MANAGERS BETTER.
    When a team leader puts in their two weeks, find a replacement in that time.
    Sexual harassment training for all employees on their first day.
    Proper Employee treatment training for store managers.
    Find a better place for pregnant employees and employees with medical issues that make mobility an issue.

    Pros

    Wegmans is a good place to work. They have good Benefits!

    Cons

    Some co-workers suck. Cook II think there are superior, and treat cook III like idiots. Team leaders are not very bright either, just bragging that they make their own schedule and put there time off when they like. Management favorite people who they like.

    Pros

    great reputation, nice people to work with, lots of people to cover your shift.

    Cons

    Great reputation for corporate employees, otherwise hourly employees are treated like dirt. At the store I worked at, there were only 7 people in the entire store that worked full time and gained benefits. Also, for a grocery store to not give any type of discount or bonus on food items is ridiculous
