    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Finally, a company that actually practices what they preach when it comes to the importance of their employees. I truly believe they do every little thing they can for their people. Being a grocer, its never going to be free buffets, and nap pods like the big tech companies, but they do all that they can to make you feel crucial to the operation. Everyone is super friendly and inviting, and there seems to be a true open door policy with any of the upper management. You seem limited only by your own goals and ambitions here. Many of the top management started as part-timers.

    Cons

    Retail is hard, and not for everyone. Certain times (holidays) can be very stressful. So you need to be prepared to dig in, and hustle. They are very lenient with the employees and it can be frustrating seeing some who take the company's kindness for granted, rather than embrace it. Sure, pay could be better, but did I mention that it's retail grocery?

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to cut stragglers loose. If they aren't going to buy into all the company is about and all they do for the employees, then find people who will.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, paid fairly, excellent environment

    Cons

    Coordinators and STL's were constantly switching so it was hard to maintain a relationship with someone who, technically, is your boss.

    Advice to Management

    Try to decrease turnover within the STL and coordinator positions.
