    I worked at Weis Markets part-time for 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 for 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.

    I have been working at Weis Markets full-time for 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.

    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

    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.
