    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

    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

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

    Pros

    Wegmans definitely goes above and beyond at making its employees feel like a part of the family. I have worked with some amazing coworkers and managers over the past few years.

    Cons

    Working here can be fast-paced and a bit frustrating. My location can become very busy, very quickly, and it seems like we are always slightly understaffed during those times. This can make following the projects/rules that corporate sends down a little tedious.

    Advice to Management

    I think you can improve on your simplification process. Right now it is set up as a one-off solution to everything, but I think you need to allow individual stores/departments to tweak the rules so it works for them. It can be a little tedious and time consuming labeling where trashcans, for example, need to be stored when that can change due to unforeseen needs. It isn't flexible enough.

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

    Pros

    Promotes work community
    Great starting wages for part-time employees
    Raise every 6mo.
    Flexible hours/availability
    Support from management during times of personal trouble

    Cons

    As a part time employee, hours will vary greatly depending on the time of year
    Shifting away from an employee-focused to a profit-focused company
    Hours constantly getting slashed from departments
    Often understaffed and overworked employees

    Advice to Management

    Remember that focusing on people is what makes Wegmans great. As someone who has been working there for five years, I have seen a gradual loss of this focus over time.
