    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very flexible with scheduling for part time college student employees. Most of the people you work worth are decent people, and I felt a sort of belonging there, almost family like. If you work well and treat the people around you with respect, your coworkers and superiors will look out for you in return. There are also some customers that are very kind, and interacting with them is rewarding.

    Cons

    Customer service heavy positions can become monotonous and unpleasant at times. Some customers walk into the store and don't view the employees as human beings. They only acknowledge them if they need something from them and can be rude, dismissive, and even combative at times. Having good relationships with coworkers in your department helps with this, as they can support you and be sympathetic. You're all in the same boat.

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for Part-Time ONLY. If you're full time they basically own you. If you're lucky you'll get a manager who is actually decent.(In all my years in the company I met 4 managers and the best managers who actually followed the core values of the company--care, respect, empower the employees, etc have actually quit the company or moved to different stores/markets.) Health insurance is quite good and that is why you'll see many people of older age. Free anti-slippery working shoes twice a year.

    Cons

    Your skills and knowledge are undervalued. Your resume is actually never even looked at because they have their own qualifications. The wrong people are hired for the job. The wrong people are promoted. If you are lazy and don't mind putting on a smile and show up to pick up your check this is the place for you. If you are skilled, a hard working fella and passionate about your job, you will waste your time working there--there's no manager capable of seeing it and rewarding you. People in higher ranks were getting paid less than lower ranks. You won't be appreciated enough despite the ''employee appreciation days'' they throw once or twice a year. You Will pick up the slack of the lazy people and burn out and get paid the same or even less. The reason for good health insurance is because of the high volume there is many injuries. So many there's a board counting them over the week.

    Advice to Management

    One of the questions during the interview is if you ever had a problem with a manager in the past. They should reevaluate their interview questions. They are promoting the wrong people. Many managers don't have the people skills and/or product knowledge to be where they are.
