    I worked at Wegmans Food Markets part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Wegmans was great! All the cashiers were very friendly and so was the whole Front End team. I've met people that I am still very close with!

    Cons

    Sometimes the managers did forget when your break was (which was ok, they did have many people to remind, so as long as you ask them when it is or tell them you should be fine.)

    Pros

    Fantastic environment to learn and grow. Management is great, very understanding and actually cares about you as an individual. Flexible scheduling, they allow you to come back during breaks and work. Overall, I've been with Wegmans since I was 15, they have helped me grow immensely. There are many different opportunists to move up within the company.

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive with other Grocery stores.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, Wegmans is #2 for best places to work for a reason!
