Bookkeeper and Front End Monitor (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – February 25, 2018
Not a terrible job, definitely room for growth if you are looking for that. Management could have been better, breaks could have been better. But overall I am happy to have gained the experience of working there.
It was overall very stressful and coworkers were very rude
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – November 18, 2018
They wouldn't allow me to change my hours and they refused to become more flexible when I had to go back to school after summer vacation that is why I left . They complained and nagged at me for calling off a lot when my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer .
Very Hectic work place,employees do not come to work. Employees always late.Employees always getting smart with customers.
The hardest part of the job is not having coverage,on a daily basis. I paid more, The company would keep , the better employees. The company is very productive,because the older employees,pick up the lack. Most of the younger employees are very lazy, want to break all day,and talk on their cell phones.The most enjoyable part of the job, is that it is a weekly pay.

Management has very little skill when dealing with everyday aspect of the business. Corporate has completely gutted this company of very valuable employees. Employees are treated like a cost and not an asset. Hard workers are not rewarded and are often told to make up for employees who do not work. Too much work to do in a day and still told that not enough effort was made.
Poor manager skills. Too much work and not enough help.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Jersey Shore, PA – November 12, 2018
I was a cashier and Weis was the worst place I have ever worked at. The customers were okay some were not nice but that’s people everywhere you work. What made it so awful was the co workers, they were unwilling to help the whole time I was there. If I needed money or coins for my drawer on a busy day I would go the whole day without any change or certain dollars I needed to give customers change, sometimes I would have to count dollars out in quarters. I had even asked multiple times In a 5 or 7 hour shift for coins and small bills and i got nothing and then would get yelled at when they would check my drawer and i was short. I got yelled at a lot when I asked to go on breaks, we were allowed a 10 minute break on short shifts and a 30 on a long shift. I frequently saw certain co workers standing around talking for long periods of time gossiping when a Customer needed help with something that I could not properly provide without higher up assistance. I repeatedly had to apologize to the customer for the long wait and sometimes the customer would get frustrated and go over demanding assistance. I was provided with mis information and bad instructions on how to do things properly and then get yelled at INFRONT of customers for simply doing what i was told. I’d sometimes have customers comforting me saying that it was not my fault and they are appalled by my co worker(s) actions. I frequently left work crying in frusteration dreading coming back because the co workers were awful. If your younger then 30 i highly recommend not applying for a job here, save yourself a lot of mentalmore... strain and find a job that will not bring you down every single day. Weis markets has had a reputation of poor management and poor workers. I eventually quit after having enough of being put down on the daily simply asking for help with tasks a cashier could not complete. Long after I quit working there I would get dirty looks from previous co workers and walk into the most unfriendly hostile environment. I had a family death matter and I requested a day off in advance to spend the last hours with my dying relative just before they passed and I was told if I wanted to call off I needed to find someone to cover for me. They refused to provide me with the proper contact info to find someone to cover for me. Definitely never returning to weis markets again. The root of this cause stems all the way up from the front floor monitors to the high management. Something needs changed or else they will continue to lose workers like they already have beenless
Lazy co workers, unfriendly co workers, getting yelled at for taking a REQUIRED 10 minute break
Small, slow-paced workplace with many friendly faces.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Scott Township, PA – November 9, 2018
This was a good first job, I gained cashier skills and also customer service skills. I liked management more before it was switched and I wish I had better hours. The most enjoyable part is the familiar faces you see. The hardest part is working out hours and scheduling or taking time off.
Coworkers are the only thing that kept me going here
Cashier/Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Fogelsville, PA – November 8, 2018
Weis was a fun place to work for the 3 years I worked there but that was only because of my coworkers. Some managers were also fun and would make your shift feel more like fun than work. Our store manager was terrible I don't even know how he still is employed.
Stressful, awful work environment with poor management
Front End Sales Attendant (Former Employee) – Brodheadsville, PA – November 8, 2018
You will be thrown into departments with little/no training. Also, you will be expected to run more than one department at once by yourself when things get busy or there are call offs, good luck getting any help.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Westminster, MD – November 7, 2018
I wouldn't recommend working at Weis Markets. In my experience, it was terrible. Everyday when I came to work it was always a mess. You don't get paid well at all, you can make more money in fast food. The only good thing about this company is that they are really good with minor laws and not allowing minors to over work hours.
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Coopersburg, PA – November 6, 2018
Customers can be very discouraging, yet they can be anywhere you go. Lots of regular customers which makes comfortable work environment. Good job for part time students. Coopersburg Weis is closing in the 2019 year
I would go back to work for this company in general a good place for employment
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Mechanicsburg, PA – November 6, 2018
in general you worked on your own in the job that you were given and helped in other departments when necessary. Hardest part was trying to get work done in the time given because of people calling off.
