It was a job at first and that's all it would have ever been.
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – December 14, 2018
I started working for Wegmans part time during high school in 1996 in the grocery department, in 2000 I went fulltime working overnights. I went to at least 4 different locations throughout the 13 years I was there. It was a job, it was work. It was an environment where you were constantly moving. Some coworkers were cool, others were head strong jerks. The management was the same way. It all depends on the people anywhere you work. For the most part it was okay but I had the feeling throught the first few years of being full time that this was something I did not want to do forever. In late 2008 I had a kidney transplant and was out for a few months. After I was able to work again I had to be transfered to another store and it was one I did not want to be at because the supervisor was horrible. A few times this supervisor would tell me how slow and lazy I was and at one point I had it and yelled at him. He told me to leave and that was my last night there. It was not the way I wanted my years to end with the company. Maybe it was better this way. I ended working at Tops for over a year but soon after I became a security officer (something I always wanted to be involved in). Now after 7 years of being a regular officer I am an assisstant supervisor and couldn't be more happy. I teach and help the other guards and learn from them as well. So as far as Wegamans goes, I believe it's mostly for high schoolers and college students, part timers and retired folk. Praise Jesus!
Pay raises, benefits and sometimes free food
Coworkers not always working as a team, management was horrible
