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

    Pros

    I worked in the pharmacy department at Wegmans and I enjoyed my time there. The benefits, including health as well as paid time off, were great even for a part time employee. The store really cares about its employees, offering services such as free flu shots, free meals for doing something simple (like checking your blood pressure), etc. Everyone who works there is friendly because they really enjoy working there. Raises were given on a very consistent basis.

    Cons

    When I was there, I was working 35 hour weeks, but still paid as a part time employee. I was told they didn't have the option to hire another full time employee, which was a bummer but I understood. However, I knew that if I were hired full time I would have been paid much more and enjoyed more health benefits and paid time off. I had graduated college and needed the extra money as well as guaranteed hours, so I ended up leaving.

    The environment was amazing. Management was super friendly. The scheduler was willing to work around school and other personal obligations.

    None that I can think of other than accidentally buying more food than expected for lunch from prepared food.

    Keep being awesome.

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

    Pros

    Wegmans really does give a second-family feel to its work environment. All of my managers up to the Store Manager knew me by first name, and were always available for assistance if I needed it, or just to catch up on my development as an employee. The Who We Are values aren't just for show, it really is a deep part of their corporate and retail culture and it shows.
    They have a track record of hiring the best and helping them become even better; My coworkers here were some of the most friendly and dedicated individuals I've come across. I made friends with several of them and we were all for delivering the best products and services every day. Wegmans is also VERY BIG on personal development within the company, and has a well-defined structure for employees to move up the ranks within.

    Cons

    Stores go through periods of working on skeleton crews sometimes, even if it doesn't show outwardly. It puts a LOT of stress on the employees there when they have to absorb the roles of 2 former coworkers after they move up or move on. This is especially prevalent at the entry level positions; after a bunch of our employees moved up to team leader or management status we had holes in our coverage for quite a while.

    Advice to Management

    Fill in your positions more! Get new people on board quickly after you promote someone to minimize or eliminate gaps in coverage.

    Pros

    Everyone is pretty cool. Never worked somewhere that had so many nice coworkers.

    Cons

    Honestly cant think of any that stand out other than the usual things that every job has.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
