    I have been working at Weis Markets part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good management at location, good opportunities for different experience (working in different departments), offers good benefits for full time employees.

    Cons

    Doesn’t offer vacation time if you’re a college student (working weekends during school semesters, all week every week all summer and winter), little to no benefits for part time, no union representation, if you’re a great worker you get to do other people’s job too and not get paid for it.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better wages and better benefits to part time and student employees. $0.15 a year is not rewarding.

    I worked at Weis Markets part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good starting rate of pay for part time work. Relatively easy work. Not as busy as a regular big box store like Walmart. You get to know your regular customers pretty well.

    Cons

    Most locations are understaffed, so You get asked to come in a lot on days off. Upper management gets moved around a lot so you don't have the same store manager/district manager from year to year.

    It's ok for what I do.

    The pay is horrible considering the hours and being given part time at 35 hours max each week.

    More care of employees

      I have been working at Weis Markets part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Out of most pharmacies and supermarkets in the area, Weis is one of the better ones. The general demeanor of the regular employees there is wonderful and everyone is always looking out for each other. They have recently hired new store management, and it's rare to have a boss that feels like a friend and not feel like they're always flexing their power over you. However, they're different from the pharmacy management,...

      Cons

      There's many things wrong with the Weis pharmacy, and I think anyone who works there or at the store in general should be aware of them before they apply, so here's a list: - The pharmacy management and managers are corrupt. They got caught stealing wages from employees. You would work X number of hours and they would go back into the log and change it so that you got paid for fewer hours. They resist giving raises...

      Advice to Management

      Root out the corrupt management. At the very least, reform them. Give your best employees a reason to stay at this company and move away from the CVS approach. Otherwise, be prepared for the pharmacy to sink.

      Pros

      Worked well with my school schedule and working part time Because of the short staff I got a lot of hours

      Cons

      Horrible management They pay you nothing, but want you to work your butt off

      Advice to Management

      Raise your pay and hold your employees accountable

      I have been working at Weis Markets part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      pleasant, friendly work, well lit, comfortable environment, clean, some flexibility with hours, starting pay 9$ hr. Great way to get to know your community! Easy work. Nice work. Safe. Great support system for problems at the register.

      Cons

      I applied ONLY for advertised FULL-TIME positions, just before the holiday season, and was hired under that premise, although I was informed that it was a company-wide policy to only offer part-time for the first 3 months. I was told full time could begin after that. Durring my first 3 months I found out from other employees, that nobody there was full time, and when I addressed...

      Advice to Management

      Allow workers to keep water with them. Offer full time if you advertise full time.

      I worked at Weis Markets part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Hours were flexible, in the truest sense. When I needed more, my manager gave me more. When i needed to be cut back, she cut me back. I worked in the beer cafe while i was finishing out my degree and it was the exact type of experience I was looking for, and more. While I didn't take advantage of it, I received information in the mail about available benefits (various types of insurance) even as part time. I really enjoyed...

      Cons

      Only cons would be the constraints put on all employees by the corporate management. Wal-Mart has had a negative impact on every aspect of the retail industry in the way their stores are run, and corporate took a few management queues from that asinine institution, namely under-staffing.

      Advice to Management

      Run your stores like the small town grocery stores they are!
