Over-night Grocery Stocker (Current Employee), Sterling, VA – September 13, 2014
Unload truck of merchandise stock and condition store. I learned how to order product, have great customer service, work well with other. Management was helpful and willing to give great advise to all workers. Hardest part was working overnight and having a deadline to finish our assignment. Most enjoyable was getting to work close with co-workers and – more... being involved with customers and helping them find what they need. – less
A once great company that is over expanding and losing what made them reat.
Cook III (Current Employee), Bridgewater, NJ – March 26, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: lack of advancement to anyone who colors outside the lines
In trying to maximize profits, the Rochester based company leads with set standards for all its stores. This takes the personality out of the employees and hence the store. Many older employees with vast caches of knowledge are muted by the company standard procedures and recipes. The younger middle-managers cluster around their supervisors nodding – more... their heads to every idea from corporate while corporate blinds itself to the vast talent that goes wasted by thinking all roads lead to Rochester. While it still makes the top 100 companies to work for, the average worker at Wegman's is tired and frustrated. – less
Service Team Leader (Current Employee), Blasdell, NY – March 19, 2014
I have a very close relationship with all of my co-workers. The fact that you can work at any store in the zone, allows for a excellent mixture of employees and does not segregate employees to specific stores. Some of the customers are very enjoyable and love shopping at Wegmans, then there are the bad days when it comes to dealing with the public. – more... There is 100% job security and they are always focused on you moving up. However, there is some stagnance in the buffalo zone right now and moving up does not always happen as quickly as it should. – less
Deli/ Customer Service (Current Employee), Bridgewater, NJ – March 19, 2014
A typical day at Wegmans starts off with making sure the product is on display for the customers. Then when the load comes in the product must be all accounted for to ensure we received everything we ordered. From there we go on to place orders for the following days to come based on the product we have just received and product that we have on display. – more... From there I go on to help customers get products they are interested in. – less
Cashier (Current Employee), Bethlehem, PA – March 16, 2014
Front end management pretends to be interested in employees problems, but does not do anything to fix the multiple issues. This is a great job for students, but in order to move up in the company or to move to another area/store you must get permission from your superior meaning, if they don't want you to leave they can hold you at the position you – more... are in. The equal coworkers in all departments are absolutely lovely. – less

Fast paced, diverse amount of customers. Get along great with co-workers. Learned what it takes to give customer service, I also learned that I love helping and working with people on a regular basis. This job had some influence on me wanting to go into the medical field.
Front End Coordinator (Current Employee), Fredericksburg, VA – March 9, 2014
Pros: 6 dollars meal coupons store coupons and appreciation day
Helping with employees achieve there goals. Helping then to go from part time to full time or seek other opportunity for future advancement within the company.

Having employee appreciation day. – less
Definitely a good place to work, especially if you have other priorities or youy if you're a student
Front End Cashier (Current Employee), Rochester, NY – February 21, 2014
Pros: they have games and incentives for motivation
This is a very good job especially if you have a hectic schedule such as school. They work around you're schedule. They are sensitive to your needs and they really take care of their employees. I have yet to run into any difficulties with the job which is an excellent thing. As a student I really love that I can take a few days to go home during breaks – more... and still have a place when I'm back, they treat you like family. – less

Sub Shop Team Leader (Former Employee), Jamestown, NY – February 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
Cashier (Former Employee), Auburn, NY – January 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
