You're always busy and at the end of the day you feel satisfied with what you accomplished.
Front End Coordinator (Current Employee), Amherst, NYJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: extremely flexible availability
Cons: takes a while to move up in the company
A typical day at Wegmans is nonstop moving. You are always helping people out and constantly on your feet trying to find the next thing to do. I've learned patience and how to communicate with all different kinds of people.The management staff is constantly walking around and making sure everything is running smoothly and that by the end of the day everyone is satisfied. My fellow co-workers are always working their hardest and enjoying what they do on a daily basis. After working here for seven plus years the hardest part is trying to maintain a smooth transition for customers in the busiest Wegmans in Buffalo. I enjoy talking to new people everyday, it gives me an insight into different people's lives and I personally feel diversifies me a little more.

Slow Individual Advancement
Manager (Current Employee), NYJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: flexible schedule, good benefits, quality training
Cons: busy during holidys, slow controlled growth
Wegmans focuses on the development and training of its people. This is both a blessing and a curse. Driven individuals are forced to wait for advancement opportunities but the workforce is very knowledgeable and experienced. Many employees begin working with the company in their teens and remain with the company to retirement.

Wegmans is not only a grocery store with a pharmacy, but it is a place to spend the day with your family, hang out with your friends, have a great meal all while you shop for groceries. It is amazing and for it being my first job I am extremely happy with my experience there.

Productive Workplace
Retail Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Brockport, NYJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: free lunch on occasion
Cons: not many benefits for part timers
A typical day at Wegmans for me is to take product from the back freezer and distribute it onto the necessary shelves on the sales floor freezers. Along with doing that I am responsible for helping customers with questions and answering them to the best of my ability. During my time at Wegmans I learned how to professionally talk with both customers and my co-workers. Working for Wegmans has also taught me how to be self motivated as well as be very good at managing my time accordingly. Management at Wegmans is not necessarily the greatest, there is a lot of power hungry managers that are trying to just move up the Wegmans management chain without much regard for their employers such as myself. My co-workers are just the opposite of that, they are very helpful when I am in need of assistants whether it is with a question that I am not sure on how to answer or my co-workers taking the time to help me lift something in the backroom. The hardest part of my job is having to tell customers that we no longer carry a certain product that they are looking for, some customers are okay with the answers but others get very upset and I need to try and calm them down to the best of my ability. The most enjoyable part of my job is definitely the people that I work with, they are very helpful, easy to talk to and very outgoing which make working at Wegmans enjoyable

Cashier (Current Employee), Depew, New YorkDecember 21, 2014
Most often while at Wegmans I can be found as a cashier on the front end of the store. I handle large amounts of credit, cash and check transactions while using Wegmans' G.R.E.A.T. customer service method. I have learned the importance of time management as well as customer interaction.
The most difficult part of this job was the inflexibility throughout the shifts.
The most enjoyable part about this job was the family-style atmosphere that Wegmans' provides to it's workers.

Horrible
Selector (Current Employee), Pottsville, PaDecember 14, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits
Cons: unprofessionalism
Amongst the favoritism and the lack of professionalism, this place is the worst to work for. They constantly beat you down and make smart people feel dumb. Team leaders who don't do their job get to tell you what to do even tho they have no clue themselves in true leadership.
