Wonderful work envioronment
Administrative Assistant Human Resources (Former Employee), Woodbury, NYJune 4, 2014
Pros: free weight watchers books and items
Cons: little room for advancement
A typical day at work consisted of typing correspondence and arranging meetings and events for employees and executives. I learned how to be the best right hand person for all executives that I would be working for. Management was very respectful. Our coworker environment was like a family. The hardest part of the job was meeting deadlines when there – more... were last minute changes. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people throughout the United States. – less

Never bored
Territory Manager Northern California (Former Employee), Jericho, NYMay 18, 2014
Pros: the people
Cons: not always as forward thinking as we needed to be
No one day was typical -- A typical month would be supporting the staff in all capacities, training, hiring, coaching/ development along with HR issues. We also responded to corporate needs daily--our job was to increase revenue, grow the business through skill development of staff, by being in the right locations and staying within budget.
I learned – more... flexibility, delegation and knew having the right talent would give me the bottom line results
Management remained constant -- have the right talent and that will bring member success. .
My co workers were awesome, we worked as a team in Northern California and shared our creativity.
Hardest part of the job was finding a good balance between work and my personal life. My job played a big role in my social life as well and I made long and lasting friendships. – less

My expereince at weight watchers inc.
Tally Clerk (Former Employee), Jericho, NYNovember 16, 2013
Pros: learning how to audit and tally a form
Cons: pay
This is a great company to work for when at entry level base. I learned how do data entry of processing orders. And I met some nice and amazing people while here. If you don't mind sitting in a chair and sitting glued in front of a computer than this company is the right position for you.

Receptionist/Cashier (Current Employee), Pinole, CAOctober 9, 2013
Pros: 50% off merchandise, able to continue going to my regular weight watchers meeting.
Cons: not enough job shifts and too many employees.
I would have long periods of time between when I would get my training and actually work. I haven't worked a full shift since I started 7 months ago. I've only done training in person and on the computer.

Great Company to work for, free Weight Watchers Membership
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Leawood, KSMay 19, 2013
Pros: free weight watchers
Cons: expensive benefits and copays.
I like working for this company, I love the hours and co-workers are wonderful and always willing to help.
Management is a new management staff and a lot of policies and procedures have changed.
The hardest part of this job is that policies change quite often and turnover of employees and management is very high.
The most enjoyable part of this job – more... is that I love helping our members succeed and that I have lot of great co-workers. – less

Pros: nothing
Cons: nothing
The management was unprofessional, the technology was not up to the technician. For a company that deals with technology on construction sites they were poor. Never again

Don't do it for the money.
Meeting Leader (Current Employee), Jericho, NYJanuary 18, 2013
Pros: very satisfying and convenient.
Cons: salary and management.
The staff and members make working here a value. Salary is not a reason to work here. Wages are low. Management is not going to support you. And pressure is placed at all levels. Not a real relaxed environment if you are looking to achieve a promotion or attain recognition for a good job performance.

They treat you like you're a volunteer, not an employee!!
Weight Watchers Leader and Location Coordinator (Former Employee), southeast kansasJanuary 3, 2013
Pros: helping people
Cons: "volunteer" time, awful management
Training systems are awful, you're expected to scroll through this "employee back-office" website to keep up on everything but the website is AWFUL. Lots of hours you never get paid for. It was great working with people to help them lose weight, but Weight Watchers sucked the joy right out of the job!

My co-worker was 100 pounds OVERWEIGHT, yet nothing – more... ever seemed to happen. I constantly had to work 4-5 hours for a meeting, but was only paid for 2.5 hours. My Territory Manager rarely returned my calls or answered my emails. There is no real "directory" for you to call anybody in the corporate office.

Great place to lose weight, AWFUL place to work! – less
