Barbaric Pay and Unkind Territory management

Weight Watchers Meeting Leader (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsHelping members achieve their weight loss goals. It helps to keep presentation and meeting facility skills fresh.

ConsVery low pay. Basically you receive a flat rate for prepping, leading, after-meeting paperwork, bank deposits, inventory management, contacting members during the week, sending motivational post cards, ... the list goes on. Field management is unsympathic and expects contract workers (that's everyone who interfaces with the members) to give 200%. The pay was not fully explained during the hiring process; it was glossed over and represented as being paid the flat rate for a "hour to an hour-and-a-half meeting." That's about 50% of the job effort and most meetings require 2-hours. I figure that I earn minimum wage when all of the hours are taken into account.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the feet on the street ... this is where the rubber meets the road ... your leaders and receptionists are the face of Weight Watchers ... the faces I see aren't happy. At some point, this strategy will fail. The problem starts at the top.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Weight Watchers


    Pros: Members are really inspiring. Colleagues are good people. The… Cons: You can make more money working at McDonalds! If you do "At Work" meetings you actually see how much money the company is making… Advice to Senior Management: Stop being so greedy! You wonder why you have so much turnover but never seem able to figure out… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
