    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets full-time

    Pros

    Great job for part-timers are those looking to make a career out of working at Wegmans. Relatively easy to advance if you are competent and do what you are told.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability for day shifts places burden on overnight crew. If you are full time, they act like they own you. Requested a consistent day off every week and was told no because "full timers are required to have open availability."

    Advice to Management

    Hold everyone to the same standard. Understand that work life balance is a key factor for most employees.
