Great Place!
Sub Shop Team Leader (Former Employee), Jamestown, NYFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: family orinented, easy to advance, great atmosphere
Cons: hard to get time off around holidays
Wegmans was by far the best place I have ever worked at. The only reason why I left the company was because we moved to a place where there wasn't a Wegmans. They even offered to transfer me to another store. I may not have gotten the same position, but they would try to find something similar.
The only thing I can say that might turn people away is – more... that it's extremely customer service oriented. If you don't like to give customer service your 110% then this isn't the place for you. I know of a few people who left because they couldn't handle that expectation.
Wegmans really cares for their people. Speaking from experience, I recently went through several family deaths and even though I used up my leave, they actually encouraged me to take the time off that I needed. They are great and if I get a chance to work for them again, I would in a heartbeat. – less

A typical day
Cashier (Former Employee), Auburn, NYJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: it taught me how to communicate with our diverse society.
Cons: it was too expensive, too time consuming, and it was not stable
I enjoyed this job but with today's economy I would never consider doing this type of work. I sold Cutco Knives. I would call to set up appointments where I would do demonstrations of the knives and products which I would have to buy myself first. It was expensive to get started. It is a good product but today people don't want to spend money on knives – more... when they can go to Walmart and buy a set every year for pennies. – less

Produce Customer Service (Current Employee), Bridgewater, NJJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: people, benefits
Cons: busy, physical, hard work
As a Customer Service employee I am always on my feet, stocking items and interacting with customers. I've learned so much about food safety and work safety working here. Everyone is so friendly and loves helping people. Occasionally you get a tough customer, but for the most part there's a atmosphere of respect. I love being able to help someone out – more... with a meal or put a big smile on their face by grabbing something from the back when we run out. – less

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Rochester, NYJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: great customer service
Cons: pain in back due to register times
Typical day at work the shift times vary, I learned how to operate cash registers, read barcodes, rotate dairy products, re-shop, break down boxes and provide excellent customer service. The management needs a little work but overall pretty good, co-workers are humorous and fun to be around. The hardest part of the job is standing on the registers for – more... a long period of time, the most enjoyable part is relating with customers and employees socializing. – less

May seem great but it isn't
Cashier (Current Employee), James Street, Syracuse ,NYJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: free samples
Cons: no hours. low pay. short breaks.
Everyone says wegmans is a great place to work. Wrong. The STL's are no where to be found when cashiers need help. I'm 19 years old and they treat me like I'm a minor. I get minor hours. I live on my own. I have bills. I get 10 hours at what is now minimum wage. I can't live off of that. How am I supposed to? I can barely eat and pay my bills with that – more... amount of hours and pay...the management is okay. I'll never understand how it's a great place to work. We just came in top 12 best places to work. Can someone tell me how? – less

Great place to shop but not to work
Cashier (Former Employee), Scranton, PAJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: long breaks
Cons: no help, bad hours.
Working at Wegmans was a struggle. It was a struggle because the manangers favored older and more experienced cashiers/workers. If they needed help they would be right there, right away. But if a newer person needed help, it would tae over 10 minutes to get help. What i learned at Wegmans was really nothing.

Wonderful place to work!!
Customer Service/ Other (Former Employee), Bridgewater, NJJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: friendly environment, lots of flexibility with time off and scheduling, great place for a college student or high school student.
Cons: no discount on food for lunches, few advancement and full time opportunities
The biggest problem with Wegmans is there is little room for advancement. The full timers pretty much stay till they die (GREAT COMPANY CANT BLAME THEM) and so full time positions rarely open up. When they do half the store applies to them. Other than that this is a great company particularily for high school kids. I started when I was 15 and left when – more... i was 21. they pay very well for a grocery store chain and offer good benefits even for part timers.

They offer no discount on food though. They have a great prepared food section but offer no discounts to employees, so while your eating your tuna sandwich from home (keep in mind you still bought the ingredients from Wegmans) your watching everyone around you scarf down some delicious 10 dollar concoction. Since part of your paycheck goes back to them for lunches they should at least offer a discount. – less
