    Pros

    The sky is the limit when it comes to training and learning new things
    Very supportive of creativity
    They will go above and beyond when an employee is in need professionally or personally.

    Cons

    Very tough to move from stores to corporate or vice versa
    Job posting system needs some retooling, should go back to promoting within department sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's good to take a chance on promoting people. They used to be big on stories of cashiers becoming executives by working through the levels, now they want degrees for every job above customer service and are hiring more from outside first.

    Scale back on the number of programs, too much going on.

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

    Pros

    Wegmans is a great place to work. The managers really care and there are regular raises based on performance every 6 months. Employees are great to work with. Flexible Hours, they'll work around your schedule if you are a student in college, one of the few companies that will do that. All around great part-time job with lots of growth potential.

    Cons

    There are communication issues occasionally but not a whole lot to complain about for a part-time job. If you're a hard worker, then you'll have no problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Wegmans part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good management team, clear path for advancement, a general sense of caring for all employee's. Constantly rated in the top 20 companies to work for in the country.

    Cons

    Retail hours can be hard, not your typical 9-5. Other than that I would say that there really aren't any other complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and drive to deliver incredible customer service to all that shop there.
