    I worked at Weis Markets part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling for high school and college students.

    Cons

    Kept me as an employee to work the summers in between my years at college, but reverted my salary increase I earned through high school to minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Give more power to cashiers to validate gift cards and EBT as well as voiding duplicate scans. This is often why lines get so backed up creating frustrated customers.

    Pros

    Nice direct manager who wanted everyone to be doing their job and treated efficient workers with respect, there are several departments to work in and learn which is cool

    Cons

    I did customer service, bakery and post office, so it was fun running around a lot but there were a lot of kids who stood around talking or eating all day...so much for nice and productive coworkers. Pay sucks and no room to advance. They will cross train you at least

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people and pay them a decent wage

    I worked at Weis Markets part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedules if you’re a college student and co-workers are great.

    Cons

    Management is poorly trained and some are without any interpersonal skills it takes to be a manager. If you are looking for a job that gives you a schedule ahead of time, this is not the one. You won’t find out what you’re working on Sunday until the Friday before.

    Advice to Management

    Management does not listen to employees or take into consideration their opinions.

    Pros

    They are willing work with you with hours. Pay is above minimum wage.

    Cons

    Hard to advance. It is all politics. Full-time positions are extremely limited.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you listen to the little guy, being that if there is a problem they would know first. The employees probably have just as much good ideas when it comes to improvement and better serving the customers.
