I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I worked for Wegmans for seven years from high school through university. Wegmans management was very supportive and accommodated my frequently changing schedule.

Wegmans offers a scholarship and is fairly easy to receive if you have 1-2 years experience before entering university.

Cons

It is very difficult to break into the corporate level

It is my opinion that Wegmans management keeps experience employees part-time in order to avoid paying benefits.

Some positions such as produce delivery load is vastly underpaid for the effort needed to complete the daily tasks, not to mention the physical strain and risk of injury.

Advice to Management

Scholarship program does nearly nothing to retain relevant employees in the company. I am pretty sure it is simply in place to make the company look good and receive their recognition as a great company to work for. Don't get me wrong not complaining about receiving a scholarship, but Wegmans could utilize this program better and retain talent if they made an effort to mentor and actively offer career advice to their scholarship employees.

    Pros

    I have been with Wegnams as a Cashier since September. The staff is very nice, helpful, friendly and very accommodating. As a part time employee, I provided my availability and number of hours preferred to work each week to the Front End Supervisor. They have been very accommodating.

    None. I have not found anything working about the company that is a negative.

    Cons

    -Favoritism plays a huge roll in job promotions
    -The internal job process is also a joke, you see a person one day who's a cashier and the next day they are a manger, and I saw no postings for an open spot
    -Worked my but off this holiday season and the only gift from the company I was some messily little coupons

    Advice to Management

    Give us employees a discount and stop playing favoritism all the time.
