Office Manager (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – March 20, 2018
Customer Service is a high priority in every area regardless of position or status. Every store has its own personality pertaining to the neighborhood and type of shopper. At times, the hardest part of the job is handling interruptions while completing deadlines and daily tasks within the time allotted. High Standards is a way of life with the company.
Job Stability, Medical benefits
Being pulled into too many directions at one time, rushed training
Team Leader/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Northborough, MA – March 19, 2018
Overall, Wegmans is a great company. The management structure does a great job showing it cares about its employees and the surrounding community. Plenty of charitable activities. There is a focus on work life balance, particularly with full-time employees. There are plenty of training programs to ready full time employees/ Team Leaders for Area management positions as well as cooks for Sous Chef positions. Wegmans is huge about promoting from within. As for the hiring process, Wegmans takes the time to make sure we do it right. Not everyone is meant for kitchen/retail and instead of setting someone who just isn't a good fit up to fail and also the time, effort, and money on training said individual, Wegmans tries to always find people who fit in to the Wegmans company values. Now, the system isn't perfect. But more oft than not, they get it right. The pay is at or better than any in retail that I've heard of, at least among full time employees. And the health insurance is second to none on the value for what you pay for a premium. Paid vacation, 401k, and in Massachusetts time and a half on Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas off are always a bonus. The workplace culture is warm and most everybody gets along, even across departments. Also... there's cake.... lots and lots of cake... I had to add that because if there's a reason to celebrate... Management loves to celebrate... After all Wegmans was #1 in the best places to work in retail... AGAIN... there was a lot of cake. I have been at Wegmans for four years and I can say it's one of the best working experiences that I'vemore... ever had.less
healthcare, dental, vacations, no thanksgiving or christmas shifts, promotions from within
