I have been working at Weight Watchers full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Working with members is what makes this job great. Seeing others succeed keeps me engaged. There is adequate training and the hours can be flexible.

Cons

Your pay doesn't directly depend on your performance, but on the attendance and sales at the meeting. You don't have control over who attends or buys. You can encourage sales and attendance only. Your hours are dependent on what's available and there is a definite slow down at certain times of the year. Once you are an employee, it's hard to make a meeting for yourself to support your maintenance.

Advice to Management

Make this a salaried position with commissions. The unpredictability of the income makes it hard to maintain as a full time job.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Weight Watchers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of nice people that I trained with, loved it. Was training to be a receptionist

    Cons

    Horrible training for a very complex job, promises that were made that were not kept. After 6 mo of no work no meetings I quit

    Advice to Management

    Get a group training program the is longer than two meeting and you will get quality employees that will stay, not trainers that are afraid they are going to lose hours if they train you, so they don't. Don't hire so many people when there is no work.
