Love The Work. But Can't Make It Work As A Single-Income Household.

I have been working at Weight Watchers part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Support with maintaining weight. Accountability. Walking the talk. Everyone who works in the Weight Watchers meeting room is a Weight Watchers member and success story. Great co-workers. Flexible hours. Ability to give back. Discount on all Weight Watchers products.

Cons

Low pay. More and more is being required in terms of time and commitment, yet most employees are part-time. In order to take time off, paid or not, employee must find his or her own replacement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

it is not possible to support myself as a single woman working full-time for Weight Watchers and living in an urban environment. That makes me sad. Also, employees who have been with Weight Watchers many, many years receive the same base pay as someone just beginning. This seems grossly unfair. What is being asked of late in terms of time and commitment feels incongruent to the part-time nature of this job. I have spoken to many of my colleagues and we agree, it is hard to stay on top of things. We often question what the priority is because so much is being presented to us at once.

    It was a great company to work for prior to the merge of Weight Watchers Int. I was in the .com side of things
