    Pros

    This was really not a bad job to have, but not a great one... food discounts, paid time off after 6 months.

    Cons

    just a boring job outside of school, but as with everything, you try to focus on the positives

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

    Pros

    The "associates" I have come to know are now considered more like family than friends. Easy to get along, everyone respects everyone. Customers get the upmost respect and friendliest service.

    Cons

    No benefits for the people who work hard. It really all about seniority, which in some cases is not a fair way to advance. Certain staff are definitely "clicky" meaning favoritism runs this company...not good!!

    Pros

    Many of you coworkers will be great people, but the management is poor.

    Cons

    Don't expect to know your scheduled for the coming week until the Wednesday before hand. Managers don't care about how things will effect the employees or customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees they are the ones who really run the business.

    I have been working at Weis Markets part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It differs from store to store, but at least at mine the people are friendly and very nice. Asking for time off generally isn't a hassle, if we have the help for the time requested off.

    Cons

    Low pay and senior management really doesn't seem to attempt to retain anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your employees and see if there are people you're overlooking that want to advance in the company.

    I have been working at Weis Markets full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    fellow employees. some management is considerate and realistic in expectations. 10% employee discount is not much but is at least something. Employees also receive a discount on sheet cakes, again, not much but is at least something.

    Cons

    Upper management forgets what it is like to work in a store. They continue to expect more but with fewer resources and less man-power. Requirements for bonuses are unattainable. Rules are not enforced and therefore are consistently broken with no consequences because management refuses to take action.

    I have been working at Weis Markets

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Willing to hire high school students or those with little experience.

    Cons

    Managers do not discipline employees, good workers quit causing an extremely high turnover. Little chance for advancement past the store level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the constant cutting of hours causing a struggle just to serve the customers. Spend more time finding competent employees and be willing to invest more (training and pay) in them.

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedule. Some people are fun to work with. They give you off on Christmas. Shortened hours on some holidays.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Favoritism. Incompetent & lazy managers that do not discipline poor workers or do their own jobs properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give pay raises and promotions to people that deserve it! Pay your employees more than $1 more/hour for Sundays and holidays.
