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

    Pros

    Great pay for a grocery store, good flexibility in choosing your hours

    Cons

    Management were college students with not much experience so it was not that well organized. Asked 5 times to reduce hours, each time promised it would happen but I was always given the same amount.Requested time off for vacation a month in advanced, was schedule to work the whole week I would be away and even after I got it fixed they still called each day I was supposed to work to see where I was. Poor communication, very big company.

    Pros

    Caring, empowering, and willing to get you where you want to go. Cross training is recommended and beneficial for individual growth.

    The retail schedule is tough! It's not the company, it's the industry. However, Wegmans cares about a work life balance and will work around conflicts for scheduling.

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

    Pros

    The coworkers start feeling like family. Mangers are understanding of time off.

    Cons

    Low pay raises (.25 cent raise every year). I was there 6 years and had 8 different department managers. It's hard to trust a manager when he/she will leave after a few months. Definitely not like how the company used to be. While there, I tried changing departments to advance my career but unless you are one of the "favorites" it is impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Look back at when Wegmans was one of the Top 5 companies to work for and go back to those roots. There is a reason why it is no longer one of the top places to work for.
