I worked at WW part-time (More than 5 years)
Through caring and understanding you can literally save peoples lives.
You are generally surrounded by others who care.
The WW program is solid, workable, and leads to lifestyle changes that can be carried with you forever.
When I started I understood that this is essentially this was a part time hobby to share some of my knowledge after losing over 100 pounds. I was satisfied with that. It's not a money making job. It steadily became a ridiculous investment of time and energy as they began to require enormous hours of computer training and pointless staff meetings at low compensation. WW knows that employees are there to give back and take full advantage of that. They now require so many tasks at meetings that it has detracted from the opportunity to properly interact with members, which is the only reason I was there in the first place. It's a corporate business. It's meant make money. The success of the member is secondary to the bottom line.
Advice to Management
I would beg management to understand that WW affects the emotional and physical health of human beings. Take you corporate mentality elsewhere. Give the company back to those who sincerely care about helping others.

I applied in-person. I interviewed at WW (Union, NJ) in January 2009.
I was a successful life member of Weight Watchers with a desire tov share the knowledge I had obtained in my journey. I was asked if I would like to work for Weight Watchers by my Meeting Leader when I obtained Lifetime status. I was flattered by the invitation. I knew it wouldn't replace my full-time job so I interviewed with the territory manager for a part time position understanding that the pay was very low but the personal rewards were worth the effort.
