    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time

    Pros

    Working with most of the customers is positive. They enjoy shopping at there. If you enjoy working with people and serving people, for a grocery store, the customer service is actually positive.

    Cons

    It amazes me that this company ranks as one of the best employers because it was no different than any other part-time work. If almost feels like a cult with upper management and the low-end employees. The customer is always right and the employee is always wrong by reprimanding employees if we cannot help the customer. For example, if an item is out of stock, it is out of stock. The employees are not respected.

    Scheduling was also horrible. There was no consistency with scheduling. The schedules are different every week.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Their time is valuable and that includes their work-life balance.

    Can be fustrating working with those that don't view wegmans as a career and don't work as hard as a result...but that's not the company's fault.

    Advice to Management

    None, keep up the good work and high standards

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

    Pros

    If you manage to get full-time employment, you'll have a competitive salary and benefit package equivalent to most upper tier jobs in other fields, without being in a management position.

    Cons

    Part-time employees, which every new employee must begin at, usually get the short end of the stick, coming with relatively poor hours, and generally poor treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your part-time employees, as they are the ones who close your departments and make sure they are clean and ready for the day-time rushes, they are the ones who do all of the harder, less safe work, when in fact company policy dictates the opposite.
