    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I sincerely enjoyed working for Wegmans for the two years I did. The employees are typically kind and funny. Management is truly caring and the pay isn't half bad for a grocery chain.

    Cons

    The work can get very monotonous after a while. I chose to leave Wegmans because I got tired of stocking shelves and grinding burger meat after two years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Management at Wegmans (in my experience) is fantastic!

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

    Pros

    Pay raises every six months and most of the people working there are super nice. It's very easy to make friends with the people there.

    Cons

    Management can be very difficult to deal with and sometimes the customers can be very rude

    Advice to Management

    Don't act like you have all the power in the world. Stay humble and don't sweat the small things

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time

    Pros

    Great customers, decent pay, always busy, always something to do. Great learning experience for college management courses on how NOT to treat employees.

    Cons

    Lack of dedication by management to loyal employees and top performers. Unprofessional front end manager who shows favoritism and is NOT a people person.

    Advice to Management

    Place managers in positions they are competent for - having a non-people person manage the front-end who is unfriendly to customers and treats employees like they are 10 years old is not a good formula for employee morale. Follow through with promises made. Send mid-level managers to management training to help educate them on how to professionally treat employees, and to be fair and consistent.

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

    Pros

    They really care about the employees, there is always something going with the employees in mind such as free health screenings, challenges on how to eat right you name it. Very team oriented company, you rarely run into an employee at Wegmans who doesn't have that mindset of helping each other no matter what department.

    Cons

    Being a part timer, the pay was not ideal. There were some employees that started after me that ended up making more than me, which did not make sense.

    They should have better shifts for thode with seniority.

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling
    wegmans scholarship program for college students

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. I have been working at Wegmans for almost 6 years and I'll see someone getting hired who ends up making only 25 less cents than I do. They do not treat employees who put in there time with much respect.

    Advice to Management

    Show more respect for loyal employees
    HIRE MORE WORKERS... my department at both of my stores is always short staffed
