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

    Pros

    Good heath insurance. Easy to get time off when needed. Decent vacation days. And most of the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Bad management, safety is the last thing they care about if you report a safety issue you are likely to get laughed at and told to get back to work lower management want to make themselves look good so they don't report near misses. Training is lacking as food safety is lacking( wash your produce trust me on this). Low starting pay compared to other companies who do the same thing. No incentives to want to do better no employee discounts or bonuses horrible shift start and end times. Favouritism run rampet and no accountability for managing

    Advice to Management

    Start taking safety seriously not just saying you will and don't. Hire management who will actually actively manage and promote a better and safer work place and not Just sit on a computer all day looking up sports stats.. improve training to prevent food from being contaminated and crushed by poor pallet building. Give us incentives to want to do better and rewards for meeting goals. Even Wal-Mart does that.. And practice what you preach don't just say things and not follow through.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome.

    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.

    Some positions come with odd hours for hourly employees, like any retail job, weekends are a must. Hourly wages may feel lower than average compared to amount of work.

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

    Pros

    Great ability to move vertically as well as horizontally to another department or store
    Scholarship opportunities
    Biannual raise
    For the most part an understanding employer

    Cons

    Can be stressful when busy (during the holidays, weekends, etc.)
    Management is at times disorganized
    Customers can be very rude and disrespectful towards the employees at times

    Advice to Management

    Management could definitely "take a chill pill at times". A lot need to further develop their crisis management skills. Better implementation of what their boss asks them to do (ex. may ask that cashiers do not use their phones but will not even let employees check phones if no customers are around and there is nothing to do)
