    I have been working at Wegmans part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are very flexible and accommodating and flexible when it comes to schedules. A great place to work for high school, college, or people with families.

    Cons

    The management. When you have put in your time (7 years to be exact) with ideal performance, your pay compensation does not reflect it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to figure it out. Often there are too many chiefs, and not enough Indians.

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

    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.

    I worked at Wegmans part-time

    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.

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

    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!

    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.
