I recently joined a company that I believe will revelutionize the vitamin and supplement industry and a an avid Wevmans customer I couldn’t help but think that Wegmans and this company could work hand in hand . This company offers a health assessment that determins exactly what vitamins and supplements you should be using. It talked into consideration what medications you take , your lifestyle and individual needs such as fertility or weight loss. I would be honored and enthused if you would take a look at my website.

Thank you

It’s EJ but he goes by Eric H.
He isn’t nice he just want your money and doesn’t want to pay you back the next day! He forced me to loose my job as a cook in Columbia at Bj’s Warehouse company.

I had the pleasure of shopping the Alberta drive store. I have started a wellness program and needed to add more veggies to my diet. I asked a college student named Alex about how you know things are ripe and what tastes good. He was fantastic and knew what he was talking about. He is a good example why Wegmans is a cut above everyone else.

A happy customer

Someone needs to get a control on your Woodbridge, NJ store……

I’m tired of hear my son complain that they didn’t get his availability schedule due to him attending college while working. He was hired with this understanding that his classes changed every 8 weeks. When he puts in his new schedule they say they didn’t get it or tell him he can’t have those days off.

He was also told that when he needs days off for Police Auxiliary to let them know so he can have those off. Again, something they knew at time of hire. When he puts in for it, he’s told you can’t have it too many others are off and he puts in 3-4 weeks in advance.

They schedule him on days he can’t work due to school & then when he tells them they take the time away totally and don’t give him anything. Then he knows what his schedule is to be and when he double checks it online he finds that they took away hours from him and gave him hours else where that he can’t work due to another obligation.

Someone tell me where this is fair? where to the kids of today’s society get a break??
Does anyone at your Woddbridge store know what the hand is doing??
Does anyone listen or pay attention to your employees??

Recently you changed your ham salad recipe. It is no longer the same and I did try it but it was soggy and did not hold up to using as an appetizer or in a sandwich. Please bring back the old recipe or I will have to shop elsewhere for ham salad. Thanks.

Ms. Mary Ellen Burris,

For the third time this year I had to return to Wegmans on Transit to retrieve a bag of groceries that was not placed in my shopping cart.

The last time this happened over the summer, I was quite upset as it made me late for an engagement. I asked to speak with a manager to basically say that this is happening too much. He agreed. My main questions were: “Did you or anyone go and speak to the cashier and tell her that this cannot happen again?, and “Does it negatively affect the cashier in any way?”, and to both questions he answered “no”. He said he wasn’t even made aware of any groceries left behind that day. At that time, I told him that he has a systems problem when the person making the mistake doesn’t even know about it.

This past Saturday evening, my wife, daughter, and I did some pre-Thanksgiving shopping. Our bill was over $260. Of course when we returned home and began putting away our purchases, we noticed we were missing a number of items. I called customer service at Wegmans and they said they had our items, that “we left them behind”. So, back I go to retieve the bag. Amazingly, there were 5 bags of groceries on the counter that had been left behind by others too, not just me. “Which one is your’s?” I was asked. The bag was handed over with barely an acknowledgement, let alone an apology. As I drove home that interaction made me angry. So I called the store and briefly talked with “Jamie”. I asked for the store manager and was given “Chris”. Chris seemed very young and distracted. I could hear others laughing in the background. I asked Chris if he was the top manager in the store at the time and he replied yes. Again I relayed my story and asked if the cashier was reprimanded etc… He replied “no”, implying also that it is the customer’s job to make sure they have all their bags??? With a packed cart and wife and daughter, sometimes it’s easy for a customer to not always watch every bag get placed in the cart…

Anyway, after talking to co-workers and friends, I have heard from many people with similar stories. It costs people time(my time is money) and gas to retrieve groceries left behind.

If the cashier can ask me every single time if I want my dripping gallon of milk in a bag, then she/he should be able to get all of my purchased items into my cart. If the cashier can look under the cart with and without a camera every single time for items to be rung up, then she/he should be able to get all of my purchased items into my cart.

I do not blame the cashiers at all. I blame those training and supervising them. Mistakes happen, but if a cashier makes a mistake then she/he needs to know about it so the in the future that mistake is not made again.

I like Wegmans. It has been our supermarket of choice. I know where everything is in the Transit Wegmans after spending thousands and thousands of dollars there over the past 12+ years. However, I have doubts about the competance of the management at that store if simple issues cannot be straightened out. I will say too that over the years I have gone to Dash’s and Tops a lot and never had to return to a store for items left behind. I may be visiting these other stores more often now.

Is the reason that management does not make a big deal about the left behind groceries with it’s staff that often times people don’t notice/return and therefore you can re-stock and then re-sell the items??

I am not looking for anything from Wegmans other than how you are going to fix this common problem. Returning angrily to a store for something left behind is something I do not want to do again.

Thanks,

Brian M

No! The reason is that the “managers” Wegmans prefers are relatively young – very young in fact. They are rarely much older than those they are expected to supervise. So you tell me, is a young 22-year old “manager” going to effectively discipline that hot, 18-year old cashier on checkout lane 9 who he has been trying to get to go out with him? Nope. Is he going to effectively discipline those stock boys who are crushing the boxes of Zesta crackers over and over and over again? Nope, most of them are his buddies or at the very least unimpressed by his perceived “authority” and will tell him to eff off. It just cannot work. Supervisors can be decent, fair and likeable, but they must also be willing to be hated and ruthless pricks when circumstances call for it. That is a difficult mix to handle effectively.

I’m writing because I’m angry I was hosting a party and I bought cookies 10.99 a pound a few pounds and when I got home they were hard as a rock I couldn’t even nite into them , I wasted all that money to throw them away . I went to weagmans around 1 pm to pick them up so they shoulda been fresh ! I’m just upset and this isn’t the first time I ordered a cake which I paid 31.00 for and when I went to pick it up the women was so rude when she asked me my name and what I was picking up she yelled at me and said we have tons of 50 cakes in the bake with that name which was hard to believe my husband looked at me like wow and when the cake came out it was wrong it had fresh strawberries on it which I never asked for then I asked we didn’t want that she got mad and put gaudy flowers with a ton of icing on it to hide it , it was a complete nitemare , this is the 2 times over the last 2 weeks I went to weagmans and had a a bad expericance and paid a lot of money for nothing ! I hope something can be done that’s why I’m writing ! Thank you

Tiezzi Imports brings in high quality, cold pressed extra virgin olive oil from our friends in Northern Italy. I was recently speaking with one of my customers Paul Partica about growing my small import business and my son going to RIT in Rochester. Paul immediately started praising Wegmans, he sold coffee and helped put together all of the coffee bars previously. He couldn’t say enough great things about Wegmans! Paul encouraged me to reach out and make an appointment with a Wegmans buyer to sample my Tutti Amici products. I have been in business for 5 years and I am just starting to contact larger stores. I would love the opportunity to meet with someone or to drop off samples of my products. I will be in Rochester for a visit this weekend and plan to visit one of your stores.

I look forward to any possibilities you can offer with regards to my products in your stores!

Thanks,
Lisa Tiezzi
