Learn and Grow
From your first day at Wegmans, you’ll see how we put people first. We believe in long-lasting, productive relationships with our employees and are passionate about supporting your development and career growth. We strongly believe that when you grow, we grow! We know every employee's career path is different, so we make sure we provide you with the individual support and tools you need to reach your career goals.
How do we help our employees grow? Wegmans is known for promoting from within - you'll find out about new opportunities through internal job postings. Training courses and development resources are in place to help you along the path to reaching your goals. Dedicated mentoring programs give our leaders the chance to develop others by sharing their knowledge and experiences. We believe in education and assisting our employees through our scholarship program. We have awarded over $110 million to more than 35,000 employees since the program began in 1984.
In addition to the on-the-job learnings you receive every day, we have well established, carefully structured development programs that further develop those interested in and qualified for management and/or culinary roles:
- Management Trainee Program
- Culinary Management Trainee Program
- Culinary Extern Program
- Culinary Intern Program
Every day at Wegmans, you’ll have the opportunity to learn and grow. Because when good people get together and work towards a common goal, they can achieve anything.
More than half of our store managers have worked with Wegmans since high school or college, starting as part-time cashiers, and many completed their education with help from our Scholarship Program.
Learning and growing at Wegmans means that you're given the opportunity to improve every day. No matter what part of the company you work in, it is important to us that everyone is engaged in our business, supports what we do, and continues to learn and grow.
