Weight Watchers New for 2014

Receptionist, Mentor, Used to BE Leader (Current Employee)

ProsHelping people towards a healthier lifestyle

ConsThe new program for 2014 has made their approach in the first 4 weeks simpler, but neglected to recognize those who have contributed through out 2013... the reason???? A dollar an hour more.

Advice to Senior ManagementJim Chambers: Your service providers work hard and are your bread and butter. Ignoring the fact that these people need to be recognized on a local level each year is your first big mistake.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
