I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than a year)

Pros

After over two years of working at Wegmans I have began to get the feel of how great the company really is. If you are willing to commit yourself to work at a fast-paced but friendly environment you will continually grow as an employee. Wegmans is also very flexible with availabilities. If you are short scheduled, you can ask for more hours and depending on how open your availability is, they are more than likely to call you. The extra hours plus the show for dough is very beneficial.

Cons

The only one of two miniscule things I can critique about are that breaks can be a bit too short when you have loads of stuff to take care of. If they extend breaks from 10-15 minutes it will relieve stress for the cashiers so they can get their stuff done and come back once they are done. The other problem I have is the No Drinks at register policy. They should make an exception to bottled water to keep at the registers because during the busy shifts the only time that we can make a run to the drinking fountain or the drink station is when there are no customers in our aisle. Sometimes a rush can last over two hours and sometimes cashiers can get a little bit dehydrated. Having bottled water at the registers can help cashiers greatly so that they can be able to continue to provide incredible service to our customers.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing, and keep maintaining open communication with your employees.

    Pros

    Wegmans is a good workplace for high school and college students. They will accommodation you while you are in school whether it be working on weekends, holidays or breaks only.

    Cons

    You have to know someone or be well acquainted to further your career. Also, the benefits/perks are not on par with such a successful and profitable company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your "lower level" employees. They matter too!

    Pros

    The job itself is very enjoyable. The volume of customer interaction is great.

    Cons

    The work environment is horrible. Atleast in regards to the Columbia location - coworkers do not hesitate to spread word about any mistake or mishaps you make. A lot of "behind the scenes" drama, which drives many employees to either turn in their 2 weeks or simply quit on the spot. It is much easier to get the job than to lose it. Which is not a good thing. Employees that have cronic lateness, misconduct, or harass others never see any punishment or stern treatment. Which leaves the actual "good employees" to suffer. If enjoy drama and a terrible work place, apply if you want. If not, steer clear.
