    Pros

    Inter-acting with customers. Sampling availability of new products.

    Cons

    Lack of access to computers to perform duties. I am an older worker with a strong desire to excel and was repeatedly passed over by mgmt. to hire workers half my age. Unfair job posting process.

    Cons

    no upper management very very poor they hire young kids to be team leaders in some cases this was there first job they don,t know how to solve issues when they come across them i think upper management is that weak they hire this kids because they don,t know any better and they will say yes to anything

    Pros

    I had a very good experience with Wegmans. My biggest pros are that the people I've worked with I I am still in contact with. It made it hard for me to leave them because I cared about the "family" aspect of the company.

    Cons

    Your experience is dictated by management. Good managers, like mine, mean you'll have an easy time. Poor managers, or inexperienced managers, and there ay be conflict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees more and make them feel like they can contribute.

    Current Employee - Deli Customer Service in Nazareth, PA

    Pros

    It has a positive work environment with great coworkers. Flexible with college students only working part of the year. It is easy to get time off as long you give adequate notice. Regular 6-month raises are in place and sometimes other raises too.

    Cons

    There is an inconsistent schedule with some late hours, although it is posted well in advance. Communication is sometimes lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Former Employee - Bakery Worker  in  Collegeville, PA
    Former Employee - Bakery Worker in Collegeville, PA

    Pros

    Flexibility, training, benefits, company values, a top-rated company for employees, new opportunities always available as new stores open, family feeling, promotion for healthy living

    Cons

    Payscale, limited opportunities for part-time employees wishing to go full-time, lack of depth of experience in management teams (with managing and training their teams), limited ability to recognize value from employees coming from the non-grocery / food services industries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Be open to suggestions from employees - set up and fully support a process / protocol where good ideas for improving services, career-building, employee relations can be appropriately documented, proposed, supported and presented to appropriate management members in stores, regions and in corporate.
    - Set up rotation programs for employees - seek out promising FT and PT employees and ask for / encourage participation.

    Pros

    Flexibility in scheduling; Management easy to get along with; High moral standards and company values; Appreciation to both customers and employees alike

    Cons

    Too corporal for my taste; Not as family-oriented to employees as they are to customers; Lack of team-structure (Everybody's out for themselves)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team-Building training can be something to look into; Try to find a balance between treating employees like family to treating them like business partners.
