    Company is very focused on taking good care of their employees. Flexible scheduling, good benefits (if you're full time), and lots of little extras like a fully stocked fridge in the break room.

    Cons

    Starting pay could be better.

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

    Pros

    - Company really cares about employees with many employee appreciation events throughout the year and meetings with superiors - Raise every 6 months - Many benefits for full time as well as part time - Active reviews with peers and many opportunities for "Climbing the ladder" - Dedicated to providing the best customer service - Always looks to promote within company rather than higher out with a separate application and interview process - Employee suggestion box and response

    Cons

    - Extremely busy company (however this is good for job security but bad for work load especially during holidays) - Company as a whole lags behind in technological improvement - Suggestions are not taken into consideration well - Company is very resistant to change Overall the pros significantly outweigh the costs

    Former Employee - Team Leader 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay with 50 cent increases every 6 months (full-time) and time and a half on Sundays, very accessible HR department, diverse, and most coworkers are very nice people. Once you're full-time/team lead, it's fairly easy to move around departments and gain more experience.

    Cons

    As a team leader, you are incredibly overworked. Departments are always understaffed so you are expected to do the work of 3 people. Opportunity for overtime, but it's not worth the money. Creates a very stressful work environment. Upper management is fake and untrustworthy. Rampant favoritism. Empty promises about giving you more help and then nothing ever changes. They only "hire the best" which often means unmotivated kids. Also it's retail so the hours are horrible (you will work every single weekend and every single holiday) and you deal with a fair share of entitled customers.

    Current Employee - Front End Cashier, Service Desk 
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Wegmans Food Markets part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many possible departments, incremental pay raises, flexible scheduling, scholarship for college students, good for part time high school and college students, safe working conditions

    Cons

    It is very difficult to get full-time status and can be very hard to change departments. The department you are will really make or break the job. Being a cashier is like being stuck in an endless void of repetition and misery. It is very hard on your body yet they still want you to go faster to get IPMs up. It makes you feel little more than a machine. Service desk workers are expected to do too much. Not only do they handle difficult customers, returns, product compliants, lottery, ticketing, answering phones, general cashier responsibilities, and answering questions other people don't know the answer to, but they are in charge of the bottle redemption center. Cleaning the machines, building and hauling bins, the TOMRA truck loading/unloading, the cardboard, and cleaning the room in general must be juggled with all the desk responsibilities. You have a line of customers who are angry or need help and the alarm stating one of the machines are not working going off and customers out there are livid. And if you are alone, there is no way to do everything. Even if there are two of you there, it is extremely difficult. My advice is to avoid the service desk and cashier if you can. There are better departments. And once you get into the desk, it is very difficult to get out. It was too much stress for the amount of pay.
