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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules and with students.
    Scholarships for college students
    Very diverse hiring.
    Hard to get fired from.
    Minimum wage pay.

    Cons

    Customers are incredibly rude.
    Fast Pace and always busy.
    No discounts for employees.
    Not a lot of openings in other departments.
    I've been working there almost a year and still feel uncomfortable and distant from my co-workers and the environment in general. As well as get nervous before every shift.
    If you are bottom of the food chain like a cashier, there's little to no communication to you on anything.
    Some favoritism takes place in my location.
    Most Co-workers aren't rude but aren't friendly either.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is fine it's just everything else that needs work

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits, mediocre 401(k) and vacation.

    Cons

    Limited career potential if you are a mature employee. Company is very youth oriented often overlooking and dismissing employees over the age of 40 for promotional opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Pay much closer attention to your managers at the store level.

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Decent benefits. Great co-workers. Flexible scheduling is available for certain departments. Cross training is available if you want to switch to another department.

    Cons

    I do not feel respected by my boss. I can literally write down what my boss says to me word for word then ask him about it the next day and he will tell me that I must have misheard him or misunderstood him. Because I am young and a female I am not taken seriously and I am often dismissed, despite making valid points.

    Pros

    Money, less contact with customers

    Cons

    Hours, quality of life, quality of upper management. All negative

    Advice to Management

    Overnight workers break their backs for the company. Upper management needs to acknowledge and appreciate all that they do.
