    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Friendly customers. Good supervisors. Health care available with 30 hrs/week average for one year. Good retirement plan. Superior store design.

    Cons

    Hours not always steady or certain. Sometimes management a little young, and favoritism given to college or high school students. Seems like stores are sometimes understaffed intentionally to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps a little more emphasis on front-end service and less on the bottom line, which will take care of itself. Stores are very busy, and adequate staffing is critical. Be a little less forgiving to employees who constantly call in sick.

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people, ethical company, flexible schedule, opportunities for upward mobility if you're willing to relocate, stable employment, decent benefits

    Cons

    the amount of pay for the amount of responsibility ($14 or $15/hr to run an entire high volume grocery store at night), lots of managers that are only in there position due to being with the company for 20-30 years (most of them barely have a high school education and are not qualified to be managing people)

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

    Pros

    Wegmans pays better than many other companies in this area. They offer a decent health care package even to part-time employees after one year.

    Cons

    There is favoritism in regard to promotions even though they are said to be based on merit. There is back-stabbing among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your underlings; they see the problems and often can offer decent and workable solutions. They live with the problems on a daily basis.
