Loved the members, but WW fails to meet the service vision to employees. Felt very unappreciated.

I worked at Weight Watchers part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Working with the members to help them achieve success, knowing you were making a difference in their lives was great.

Cons

Expected to constantly increase attendance and sell product, but the corporation gave no support to accomplish their expectations. Service Providers who work in travelers locations where we had to set up for every meeting, tear down, work without computers were expected to perform at the same rate and with the same number of service providers as people who worked in CHAMP locations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go into the meeting rooms and actually work a couple of meetings with the staff and under the same conditions the employees are expected to work under.

    Have to love it-or it's not worth the time and effort.

    I have been working at Weight Watchers full-time for 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.
