    Great coworkers and even some management is okay.

    Pros

    I had other jobs and wegmans provided me with very flexible hours.There was also room for advancement, it was easy and mindless work, and generally kind coworkers,

    Cons

    Customers were often really rude and demanding. Pushing donations sometimes got annoying, but there were always rewards, which was nice.

    Advice to Management

    I always thought the managers did a nice job, so I really don't have any advice to offer. Most managers have worked there forever and worked their way up the ranks.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, kind coworkers, overall great place to work, especially for college students who can come back to the job

    Cons

    Stressful at times due to not enough people working, more specifically in produce. The warehouse issues are out of our control

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more people at once in produce. It can be very stressful when one person has to hurry and do everything.

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

    Pros

    Wegmans provides a learning environment on the job and through required CBT (computer based training). They also hold mandatory seminars at the location for yearly updates on safety, diversity, and their philosophy. There is a lot of pride in Wegmans employees. The environment is super clean with high standards. Scheduling is fairly flexible. Mobility within the company, laterally and promotion, is great.

    Cons

    Work can be physically demanding depending on your department. Policy for full time employees is that you must go to the location they assign you to, leaving your co-workers. The location might not be near your home. Like any retail environment you must be able to work weekends, evenings and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Consider allowing more autonomy within specialized food departments. Have an in-house sign department at each location. Some work environments can be quite cold and excessively noisy. More visits from Rochester and regional where they get employee ideas, not just dept mgr.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow within the company is expanding to new markets and there are many ways to explore different jobs within the company.

    Cons

    Jobs and tasks overlap a lot. There is only one headquarters in Rochester, so unless you're willing to relocate or drive, corporate potential is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Always make things exciting for department managers, making goals achievable while still pushing sales and numbers from previous quarters. Don't always try to be better than the latter, understand each persons and departments limits.
