    I have been working at Weight Watchers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with members is what makes this job great. Seeing others succeed keeps me engaged. There is adequate training and the hours can be flexible.

    Cons

    Your pay doesn't directly depend on your performance, but on the attendance and sales at the meeting. You don't have control over who attends or buys. You can encourage sales and attendance only. Your hours are dependent on what's available and there is a definite slow down at certain times of the year. Once you are an employee, it's hard to make a meeting for yourself to support your maintenance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make this a salaried position with commissions. The unpredictability of the income makes it hard to maintain as a full time job.
