    I worked at Wegmans part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked for only a few months in the prepared foods department. The pros are that it's pretty reasonable work. Nothing really outlandish. The company is good to work for. If you like food, if you like people this is a decent place to work.

    Cons

    If you're a foodie, you'll probably be disappointed. You work in prepared foods but you aren't preparing the food...you're selling it. Big difference. Also the part time work is completely fine, but when people rave about working for Wegmans it's because they're full time employees, they get a ton of benefits...part-time people don't really get much anything except hourly wage and some seasonal coupons.

    I have been working at Wegmans part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    When first starting as a cashier I hated the job because customers complain about legit everything and anything. However, when moving to floral I realized this is seriously the best company to work for. Once you get a chance to be apart of a department, mangers and co workers start to treat you as a somebody rather than a nobody when on cashier. Also the pay increase every 6 months is great and the flexibility with hours is amazing! After moving for college I'm so sad to not be able to work there right now. Trying to find a new job for the time being that will be flexible and pay me the same isn't all that easy. I miss Wegmans!

    Cons

    First starting as a cashier
    Having back pain from cashiering

    Former Employee - Customer Service in Syracuse, NY

    I worked at Wegmans part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, regular cost of living raises, and movement between departments makes this a great job to have while you're in school. VERY strict about going above and beyond following labor laws, which is something you will realize is NOT the case everywhere.

    Cons

    If you work at one of the larger stores, the company values tend to get a little lost in Wegmans desire to make more money. Upper management is typically uneducated and unprofessional and can be frustrating to deal with. When it comes to furthering your career, the company places a higher value on your desire to work at Wegmans for life than your intelligence, education, attitude, experience, etc.

    I worked at Wegmans full-time (less than an 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.

    I have been working at Wegmans (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits. Hands down. As a part-timer, you receive the option to have benefits if you work 30+ hours a week.
    As a full timer-40 hours a week. You get medical, dental, and vision.

    Full-Timers are really the ones who get the best of the company. In the NJ division: FT receive time and a half every Sunday, and if they work on specific holidays, they receive time and a half as well.

    There is a lot of room for growth in the company if you are favored.

    If you want to make this your career, there are opportunities for growth and you do no need a college degree to make the 60k+ salaries department and area managers make

    Cons

    There is room for growth in the company, but only if you are a favored employee. There is a lack of consistency where if they do not care for an employee, they will penalize said employee. But if another employee does the same thing, but upper management likes that employee, they can practically get away with murder.

    Lots of mixed signals.

    You are required to work holidays and weekend, especially when FT. If you have a family that you enjoy seeing, this may not be the company for you. "Black Out Periods" for all holidays, including something like "Mother's Day", mean you cannot request off. Granted, this is the life of someone working in retail

    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

    Wegmans puts an emphasis on taking care of both their customers and their employees. It is very easy to get time off and there are definitely opportunities to move up in the company, if you want to.

    Cons

    As with any job there will always be other employees, including managers, that you don't like. Thankfully there seems to be a smaller percentage of them at Wegmans than at other places that I have worked. Dealing with customers can be very frustrating at times, especially when you are expected to be nice to them no matter what!
