    Pros

    On Sundays they pay you $8.00, versus the usual $7.25. The cash register program is simple and efficient.

    Cons

    Not sure if its every Weis, or just mine, but minors can only work 4 hour shifts, so if they give you two days a week, you end up only working 8 hours the entire week. Plus, you need a manager to come and put in his key if you are scanning too many coupons

    Advice to Management

    Let minors work more than four hour shifts. Fix the distance between the scanner and the bagging station. Its hard to stretch you arms over a foot to bag each and every single item.

    Pros

    Lots of advancement opportunities. If you show interest you will almost always be able to move up somewhere.

    Some really friendly people. You meet a lot of people if you are transferred a lot. I liked this; you would always see people again.

    Cons

    Extremely unimpressive executive management. They will not extend for their hand to you let alone listen. A vast amount of productivity is lost preparing for their visits. Customers are rarely a priority because managers know they'll be verbally assaulted if they don't do everything possible to appease their superiors (always random things like a certain display). It's a terribly archaic management structure that leaves most people hating their jobs, or at best, constantly on the look out for a slightly better opportunity.

    Lower than average pay (you need to be as aggressive as possible when accepting offers - they will take advantage)

    Advice to Management

    There's some really poisonous people. Don't demote them, fire them and get good people. Weis could be a great place if you take the fear out of interactions with you all. Constant fear creates the mediocrity, which leads to irrelevance. Right?

    Pros

    The people you work with are generally awesome. It is a country type store with a few new age things so the pace isn't crazy all the time, at least at store 129.

    Cons

    Long hours and the pay is usually less than most places. I will be getting $11/hr as a department AM compared to my brother in law makes $10.80/hr at Wegmans being a Bakery clerk.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the individual person and not the job title when it comes to pay. I'm lucky I am offered the promotion but was doing management level work at part time associate wages. It feels a little depressing.

    Pros

    The check clears thank god

    Cons

    Awful management, manager of what and who I don't know. There are no people. Low pay,no accountability, if drug tested we would loose most of the staff. Managers work less then 45 hours a week at salary level?????never heard of this before. You are salary. Adding more and more work but cutting the hours

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to hire part time people give them more then a day a week. At the very least make it the same day each week so they can get a real job that pays. Weis can be the job that pays to put gas in the car for the week

    Pros

    Many of the people I work with (the few that are left) are very nice and are like family.

    Cons

    Having to work every Saturday night to change over displays (cannot start until 8pm) is a joke. Then you are expected to come back into work on Sundays. There is nowhere near enough help to be able to run the center store departments the way they expect it, yet alone take care of customers! Stores could do so much more business and make both employees and customers a lot happier if they just added more labor. Help is cut so thin in all the departments that there is no time for sanitation. There is no full time help left anymore and the part timers keep getting their hours cut to the point where they are quitting. The store suffers as a result. Then one person calls out and you are really screwed! They do not want management doing all of the physical work, but that is impossible when there is nobody else to do it. Also the ordering system (CGO) is horrible! It takes just as much time, if not longer, than the old way of ordering, and the in-stock conditions and backroom conditions have gotten worse....but the company will never admit to that after spending millions of dollars on it. Instead of wasting money on all these programs that don't work, get help in the stores!

    Advice to Management

    Get labor back into the stores, hire more full timers (because they will take more pride in their work and take the job more seriously), and stop micromanaging!

    Pros

    the best part about the job is you don't have micro managing going on the 3rd shift as long as you hit your 50 cases per hour nobody bothers you flexible schedule

    Cons

    management expects a lot out of you for meager pay and never gives more the 32 hours full time will not happen

    Advice to Management

    give the people who deserve it full time and better pay and cut dead weight
