Turnover rate speakes volumes
When you go for your interview they treat you so kindly until your foot is in the door. Give it a few days/weeks and you'll start to question what you got yourself into. This place is great for telling you what you want to hear. Almost reverse psychology. Working here has been nothing short of a nightmare. The big manager comes off as cold, arrogant and rude. I don't think he has a shred of human compassion in his bones. Two of the store managers are decent persons. They atleast acknowledge you are human. They will take the time out to say hi and ask how your day is going. Had one of them been running the store I believe my review would be somewhat positive instead of all negative. You are just a number to this company. The store is very understaffed. Each employee is expected to do the job of at least 2+ people on a daily basis. They will not hire people. If by chance they do it's because two or three others have already quit. Even then they probably won't. That will be your first red flag. The least amount of employees to get the job done means bigger bonuses for higher ups and department managers. Its no secret to the regular employees. I was told that on day one. Check out other review to see the same comment. They do not like full timers. It's a way the company saves money so they don't have to offer benefits. Over time is a huge huge no no. Believe me they will work you until the very last minute before hitting it though. You'll even be forced to work days you don't agr
ProsOne or two semi decent managers and same with coworkers.

A Typical Grocery Store Job Made Unnecessarily Difficult
Management doesn't back up their employees when facing difficult customers who are in the wrong. This results in customers learning that if they argue over even the smallest thing, they're sure to get the item for free or a gift card for the inconvenience, while management undermines associates and their authority to fulfill their job requirements in front of said customers. Full timers are nearly nonexistent because management doesn't want to pay their salaries or for their benefits, and they'll often be given the choice to either be transferred to another store, or be demoted to part time. New rules are constantly being implemented or changed by corporate who clearly do not understand what it's like to work on the store level, as they're counterproductive to getting the job done effectively. Customers are constantly frustrated by the lack of communication from the company over changes to sales/rewards systems, and employees at the store level are not given proper directives regarding how to handle this. There's also the issue that once an associate is cross trained, they're constantly thrown back and forth within the same shift, even within the same hour, to get multiple things done. There's nothing inherently wrong with keeping busy, but there is a problem when you're a monitor and suddenly expected to jump on self checkout to cover a lunch, then thrown on register because the store is busy and you don't have enough cashiers scheduled, and then you try to take a break so y
Pros10% discount on company brand items, pay is over minimum wage, some special events throughout the month, $1/hr extra pay on Sundays/holidays

Produce Clerk | Newton, NJ | May 31, 2014
A Clean Environment with a Couple of Flaws
For an employee of Weis Markets some of us find ourselves overwhelmed with a flurry of activity. Between assisting customers, taking responsibilities off of other team members because they are unable to complete the tasks themselves or are unwilling to, and unloading trucks, one may find themselves quite overworked and unappreciated. However, when looking for a clean and sanitary environment look no further than the Produce department! We clean the displays, sanitize them, and freshly stock them one to three times a day, and freshen the stock regularly throughout the day, making sure only the best produce is put out at all times. The old produce is disposed of if it it isn't able to be utilized for something else, and a log is kept of the waste product. The cooler is kept clean as well, and all of the equipment is sanitized after every use. In this environment one will learn the ins and outs of produce, the use of the fruits and vegetables, as well as the tools and use of said tools around the department. One will also learn how to properly clean and sanitize surfaces that come into contact with food, a skill necessary in everyday life. Management in Weis Markets, unlike that of a fast-food restaurant, is rather uninvolved with the employees, they are more of a figurehead with the power to influence workings within the store. As such, they are often the ones to call an employee that is busy doing their job away from their current activity to say "do this" and the employee
ProsThe people you meet, The information you learn, The cleaning procedures

Horrible co workers
I was a cashier and Weis was the worst place I have ever worked at. The customers were okay some were not nice but that’s people everywhere you work. What made it so awful was the co workers, they were unwilling to help the whole time I was there. If I needed money or coins for my drawer on a busy day I would go the whole day without any change or certain dollars I needed to give customers change, sometimes I would have to count dollars out in quarters. I had even asked multiple times In a 5 or 7 hour shift for coins and small bills and i got nothing and then would get yelled at when they would check my drawer and i was short. I got yelled at a lot when I asked to go on breaks, we were allowed a 10 minute break on short shifts and a 30 on a long shift. I frequently saw certain co workers standing around talking for long periods of time gossiping when a Customer needed help with something that I could not properly provide without higher up assistance. I repeatedly had to apologize to the customer for the long wait and sometimes the customer would get frustrated and go over demanding assistance. I was provided with mis information and bad instructions on how to do things properly and then get yelled at INFRONT of customers for simply doing what i was told. I’d sometimes have customers comforting me saying that it was not my fault and they are appalled by my co worker(s) actions. I frequently left work crying in frusteration dreading coming back because the co workers were awfu
ProsLong breaks
ConsLazy co workers, unfriendly co workers, getting yelled at for taking a REQUIRED 10 minute break

Associate | Hackettstown, NJ | Jun 3, 2019
Good if you're in-between jobs and need something to hold you over.
At this particular location: - Management does not communicate with one another very effectively, if at all. It shows. Too many hands in the pot with too little communication when it comes to certain aspects of the store. - Understaffed. You will be cross trained for register and you will abandon your job quite often to ring on register. And then you will be asked why you didn't get your own work done. - Day shift = Drama shift. Just try to remember you're there to work, not make friends. Don't be an open book and you'll avoid the drama easily. - Night shift was hard-working, and under-appreciated. Enjoyed working with them a lot, but the position has since been eliminated in a company-wide shift to only having 1st and 2nd shift working, and the store closed overnight. - Enjoyed all of my direct superiors in PAC over the years, all of them worked with me and understood my circumstances outside of work. They also taught me things to make my job easier and communicated with me regularly. In General: - Stagnant wages. Good if you need a paycheck until you find a better job. If you stay more than a year or two, you'll still be making about as much as a new hire due to the minimum wage going up, as your raises are only yearly and with an evaluation. - No overtime. So make sure all of your work is done because the company will not approve overtime unless it's a special circumstance. - Not a lot of room for advancement unless you're someone who can pick
Pros10% discounts, flexible hours, weekly paycheck, direct deposit
ConsStressful, low-paying compared to competitors, little incentive to do your best

Customer Service Representative | Westminster, MD | Jun 15, 2019
Great at first, but... (this is very long btw)
In comparison to my previous job, Weis Markets was significantly better. But as the honeymoon period began to fade, I began to see the workplace for what it truly is. Management is significantly bad. I can sense how little they care for the store and their employees. Especially the store manager. In comparison to the previous store manager who everyone, customers included, loved, this one falls so short. He doesn't take the time to get to know his employees or customers. He's so distant that most of the time I hardly knew he was in the store at all. As for my own department ( front end ), my manager was...somewhat better. He worked hard, sure, but he played obvious favorites. You could bend over backwards for this man, take a bullet for him, go the extra mile and even though he would give his thanks, it was always as if he didn't really mean it. You just were never truly appreciated. The only good manager we ever had was a substitute from another store. He was with us for a month and did far better than anyone else did. As I was a full fledged service desk only associate at this point, I appreciated the moments he took to swing by and ask if I had any papers for him to sign or simply to let me know that he was leaving for the day. I don't know how many times I'd page a manager for a call only to have someone else call me and say that the manager I paged had already left. Would have been nice to know that! Speaking of customer service, while I do enjoy it at times, I
ProsDiscounts which are only 10% off Weis Quality brands lol.
ConsMinimum wage, of course, no raises, and you can only be part time. But honestly who would ever want to go full time for Weis...?

I actually enjoy the work, the people and the flexibility.
It's has been over 30 days since I started working at Weis Markets - Deli/Hot Foods, part-time. It's close to home and I love my working hours. (I ACTUALLY like the job, after working at Amazon). Please note: I gave my department manager my set working hours, if you don't, managers will schedule you any day and time for work, so know your availability when you get hired by your local HR. On my typical work day, I start by asking what is there for me to do and usually start helping around the deli/hot food department such as, organizing, taking out trash, preparing sandwiches, pizzas, cooking chicken, slicing meat and/or cheese, restocking, etc. There is always work to be done. At closing (my department) or close to closing, I start my task of washing and cleaning, etc. Sometimes you are left alone to close your department, especially if your co-worker(s) calls out sick. So organization is important. Most of the managers at my location - departments and store level are very very friendly and helpful. My co-workers are also friendly and willing to help. The overall work is very easy, unless you work full-time, then that can be tiresome at the end of the day/week. Closing my department is fun but it entails a lot of work and mental organization or else one will/can easily get overwhelmed. Though I have little interaction with customers, many are nice and understanding at my location. What I love about the job is, being close to home, I get to go home early for dinner,
ProsFree food and drinks in the lunch room, friendly managers, helpful co-workers, easy work, lots of flexibility, a cheerful atmosphere.
ConsShort breaks IF you part-time, low pay, limited healthcare for part-timers, no sick/vacations/personal time off for part-timers. Low pay raises.

A Waste of Time: Poor Management, Understaffing, and Favoring the Lazy
I worked at Weie Markets store #191 for just under 6 months. This store is in Gap, PA. I showed promise in customer service after a few months of good performance on the register, and got moved to a Service Desk Representative. This position means you learn how to do everything a Front End Manager can do for an extremely small portion of the pay they receive. It’s how they exploit young workers. Then, they schedule you for 38 hours so they don’t have to pay you full time benefits or make you a manager. The Store Manager and Assistant Store Manager don’t know how to run any Front End machines, including registers. They also don’t know how to fix any issues on any terminals and constantly micro-manage the Front End that they intentionally understaff. The Grocery Manager talks bad about employees behind their back, despite them working hard and doing their best. Grocery is an under staffed Department too, by the way. Seafood and Deli rarely have workers, although the Managers of those departments are great employees. Produce is a bright spot where the Produce Manager is a great, hardworking employee who looks out for her coworkers. The Front End Manager is a joke, she’s incapable of dealing with stress or rough situations without blowing up on her employees. She tells employees to give her a call or something goes wrong but then gets upset with them if they shoot her a text. The store is ran poorly, customers complaining about the remodel for the Beer Cafe that the store d

Would NOT Recommend
I worked at Weis for 2 years and this was the worst job I’ve ever had. It literally drained the life out of me. The customers were extremely rude, and the managers barely communicated with the workers and when they did they could be rude as well. The front end supervisor was also very critical and picked out every little thing. During the winter time when it would get cold by the doors, you couldn’t even wear a sweater over your uniform. They would make you take it off since you are only allowed to wear the Weis company shirt or order their fleece jacket for 40 bucks. They were almost always understaffed with lines going into the aisles because of how busy it could get. I remember a few times working in the morning I was the only cashier and no matter what I did there was always a huge line of people. There are usually only 2-3 lanes open, if that, even during busy times. Breaks are only 10 minutes, which is nothing, and sometimes it was almost impossible to get a 10 minute because of how busy and understaffed they were. The supervisor would tell you “10 minute breaks are not mandatory”. Lunches were like most places - 30 minutes. As for discounts or incentives for working there, there were basically none. You get 10% off, which I thought at first was good in case I wanted to do shopping there, but the 10% was only on Weis brand products. There is room for advancement at the front end as a customer service person, and a monitor, however, pay wasn’t increased a

Certified Pharmacy Technician | Ranson, WV | Jan 24, 2019
Company mission to not give full time to pharmacy techs
The pharmacy is filled with busy work, nothing is automated so you do get a feel for what pharmacy was like about 20 years ago. Despite this fact, pharmacy technicians are not valued. Most Weis pharmacists do not value the technicians either, despite the fact that they do the leg work and about 90% of the work. I have been fortunate to have one pharmacist that values me for my work and does not send me home. Due to being part-time, you have no true health insurance. What the company offers will only pay $50 towards a office visit and only bad doctors are covered on it. I work the maximum amount of hours that I can as part time and have been denied full time employment for over a year despite my excellent performance being recognized by the pharmacists boss. I obtained my national certification as a pharmacy technician in hopes the pay would get better but you cap out at $12 an hour, which is a lot less than other pharmacies in the area. My pharmacist and her boss has been petitioning for me to get full-time but management keeps denying it for over a year now, which is why I have left this company. It is difficult to get coworkers that actually work in most places, but here employees are not written up for not showing up or just missing work by the managing pharmacist. I am always called into the pharmacy due to my coworkers not ever getting written up. I am the only person available to work all hours since only students were hired to work back in the pharmacy. Despite
Consno health insurance, no advancement opportunities
