    Pros

    Very good benefits even for part time employees, above average pay and a great company philosophy.

    Depending on what you're looking for there is some but not a ton of room for advancement but this company has wonderful paid training programs to help you.

    Advice to Management

    The management at the store where I work is great! They are always available, listen to ideas and act upon them and have a great employee focused "family" sense about them.

    Pros

    -Great pay for first job
    -Steady raises
    -Ability to take days off with just 2 weeks notice
    -Ability to grow within the company

    Cons

    -Slight favoritism in management
    -Store is always pretty busy, not much downtime
    -No discounts
    -Have to shuttle to and from government center on weekend (just kind of a pain, but not a huge deal)

    Advice to Management

    For front end managers, treat cashiers equally. Its hard going to work and seeing people not work as hard as you just because they are friends with the managers.

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is great. The actual Wegman family comes around to visit stores and really show that they care about not only the store, but the employees. They pay pretty well for what you are doing. Nice little raises.

    Cons

    Some of the management (like in any store) can be a little aloof and self centered. That usually doesn't last long though as they can be transferred often.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being great. Continue to see your fellow employees as equals.
