Top company to work for for a reason.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Wegmans full-time for more than 10 years

ProsValues driven leadership makes long term decisions based on the needs of their people and customers. Leadership is frequently setting the trends in the industry. They do things for the right reasons not just to improve short term financial results.

ConsInnovation occurs but vetting process slows down the speed of results but for the right reasons usually.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue innovating and practicing conscious capitalism.

Epic company!

Produce Team Leader (Current Employee)
Chestnut Hill, MA (US)

I have been working at Wegmans full-time for less than a year

ProsEvery day you come to work, it's like you are coming to see your family. There's laughter, purpose, values, amazing people and so many chances for growth in New Markets.

ConsAt the end of the day we are a grocery store so entry level pay can be a bit on the lighter side but definitely more than any other grocery chain.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep expanding up and down the east coast :)

Awesome Experience with Awesome People

Produce Customer Service (Former Employee)
Fairfax, VA (US)

I worked at Wegmans part-time for less than a year

ProsManagement is great, pay is better than most in the industry, get paid time-and-a-half for overtime and on Sundays, 60 cent raise per 6 months (for first few years), opportunities to move up.

ConsPressured work (especially in the stores in some more populated areas), customers are not always friendly, work hours are tough if expected to come in every morning at 4 AM or everynight at 10 PM (early morning/night shifts common).

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up and don't forget where you started!

Customer Service

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Syracuse, NY (US)

I worked at Wegmans part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe culture and people of the company were great. It truly was a great starting point as a young adult developing a career.

ConsThere are very few cons that I can provide about Wegmans. As a whole I was more than satisfied with the company. However, the worse part was dealing with ungrateful customers on occasion.

Wegmans Is a good place to work

Department Manager (Former Employee)
New Philadelphia, PA (US)

I worked at Wegmans full-time for more than 10 years

ProsMy experience was positive and I had the pleasure of working with some of the nicest people I've met in my life.

ConsSimplify your review system. I do them more efficiently, they should be catagorized, then have a grading system or similiar. Then a brief summary after each catagory.

Advice to Senior ManagementCheck your managers more; talk to them. Give them feedback on their performance.
