    Pros

    Helping Members get to their weight loss goals is very cool and there is a passion for the brand since all Leaders and Receptionists are successful Members

    Cons

    Nothing about the employee experience is transparent. Wages? Who knows. Expected hours? Couldn't say. How am I on-boarded... evaluated...? Good questions?!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No success criteria or well-defined roles combined with management clearly ruling with iron-fisted bias, creates an environment of suspicion, paranoia, and low morale.

    Pros

    Members and coworkers are wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Low pay. You cannot maintain a regular schedule or income because you are laid off if a week's attendance drops. You are expected to hold yourself available for that meeting in case the attendance increases at some time in the future. Management constantly hires and then removes meetings from experienced people in order to work in the new hires. So you better have another paying job. Weight Watchers is just extra money for most. You will never get a pay raise for sticking with the company. New hires make the same $25 per meeting as longtime employees..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some appreciation for good, experienced workers. If you treated them better, you would not have to hire so many new employees, most of whom don't stick with this company once they realize the low pay and morale. Invest in better marketing.
