    I had a long term part-time position in the deli department. I worked there during and after college.

    I worked at Wegmans part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I was there, the pay was competitive for the position. This non-union job gave me more job satisfaction and benefits than my previous union job did. Supervisors recognized hard work; it was a generally positive environment.
    I took advantage of the scholarship program. When I left for a job in my chosen field, I was able to cash out a profit-sharing account that I was unaware of.

    Cons

    Part-time work was not enough to support a household. If you're not planning on staying there long-term (5+ years), it's difficult to get a full-time position.

    I left because the work did not stimulate me mentally. I stayed until I found employment in my chosen field.
    Being on my feet for an 8 hour shift was also rough sometimes.

    I have been working at Wegmans full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    opportunities abound and friendly co-workers

    Cons

    opportunities are numerous for advancement but most times positions are already filled when posted....it has become more of who you know than what you know.....
    inconsistencies in policy depending on departments in the stores and at the corporate level.....
    directly target older, higher paid employees for "early retirement - termination"
    there was an effort about 10 years ago to promote more women and persons of color to upper management since those positions were predominately filled by white men....it has reverted back to white men over women and persons of color with superior experience and education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the values you inundate the public with...."WE CARE".....yes, but .only for the chosen....

    They preach work life balance but this entirely depends on which individual store you work in.

    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

    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.
