Great company

Various Positions Inside Grocery Store (Current Employee)

ProsCollege scholarship program, very flexible with work/life balance. Unless you are in a very small department, you can pretty much get off whenever you need to and they were extremely accommodating towards students with many different activities/clubs plus their school work.

ConsNothing major or that you aren't going to find at any other grocer.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Not Wegmans anymore just another Big Red W

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Wegmans for more than 10 years

ProsUsed to be able to learn and train instore. its all cold computer training.

ConsThey still use the Q.U.I.T. training program. Quick unimproved training.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour people do know a few things. Getting to many chiefs. Won't be able to delegate soon because you will be delegating to yourselves. Too worried about tweets not actual customers in store. closing departments too early to save payroll, losing sales. gaining wonderful negative reputation among repeat customers. Cutting of benefits is just going to send good employees to social service programs and once there why bother to work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good environment, Management not so good.

Cashier (Current Employee)
Fairfax, VA

I have been working at Wegmans part-time for less than a year

ProsGreat pay for a grocery store, good flexibility in choosing your hours

ConsManagement were college students with not much experience so it was not that well organized. Asked 5 times to reduce hours, each time promised it would happen but I was always given the same amount.Requested time off for vacation a month in advanced, was schedule to work the whole week I would be away and even after I got it fixed they still called each day I was supposed to work to see where I was. Poor communication, very big company.
