    Pros

    cant really give any pros.

    Cons

    poor management, the District Mangers change way to often.just as you get used to one change new one comes along and changes it again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of the issues at hand.stop changing things just to suit the new district manager coming in.keep it stander-ed across the board .make customer service our number one goal not the pockets of the higher ups.with out the hard workers in your stores you wouldn't even have a business.treat them with as much respect as you do our CEO.

    Pros

    For me, close to home and enjoy helping the older customers.

    Cons

    Low pay, constantly cutting hours sometimes only to benefit others, not the most cleanest facility I've worked in, especially when dealing with food service! Not sure how anonymous this rating is either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate those who work hard for you, don't miss work and try their best to help this company succeed. Stop cutting hours for some while having others work more than their share, considering most are only part time employees! Practice what they preach during original orientation, and all training classes there after!!

    I have been working at Weis Markets full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not a very hard job. Mostly common sense needed.

    Cons

    Labor is stretched too thin, pay is not competitive, and buildings are too old and run down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to realize they want $14/hr work out of $7/hr associates, part timers are paid minimum wage and the expectations of them are too high. You get what you pay for.

    I worked at Weis Markets part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is excellent. The store managers are open to suggestions. The training of employees has merit. The company is family friendly and oriented.

    Cons

    The training process of new employees needs to be reviewed for both the lenghth of time and the indiviuals who do the training. Training should be done by managers or manager assistants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be more open to suggestions from the rank and file rather than from only the regional managers or higher levels. Input from the employee who is actually doing the work should have more value.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Bel Air, MD

    I worked at Weis Markets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The scheduling was always pretty flexible. I worked here during high school and college for the extra money and, they were always very understanding of the demands of my education. The employees were also mostly nice and friendly, and I looked forward to working with many of them.

    Cons

    There was never a consistent amount of hours to be given. One week I would have 4 hours and the next week, I would have 40 hours. Full-time employees were very scarce and, in the four years I worked there - I never saw one person upgraded to full-time hours/benefits.

    Also, there was never any discipline of bad employees. Employees would show up three/four hours late for their shift with no reprimand. The only reason anyone ever got fired was for stealing. The turn-over rate was very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nicer to your full-time staff! They are the only reason that some regular customers keep coming back.

    I worked at Weis Markets part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Clean store, nice customers, ten percent employee discount on Weis brand items

    Cons

    Extremely low pay ($8.25 per hour in Produce department) [I was earning $8.90 per hour in retail (Sam's Club cashier associate) in 2004!!!], very limited hours for part time (<23 hours per week), managers complain about the most minute errors or don't even tell you what you are doing wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a fair wage for your hourly workers! Train your managers to assist new employees and give proper training so that new employees stay around for more than two weeks! Also offer the ten percent employee discount for all items inside the store, not just Weis brand products as A&P does.
