How can I become a leader?

Weight Watchers is looking for caring people to work as leaders and receptionists and help our meetings members change their lives for the better.

The LEADER is our primary role model for meetings member success. Leaders conduct group meetings, weigh members, show them how to follow the Weight Watchers weight loss plan, and motivate them to achieve their weight loss goals.

The RECEPTIONIST is a critical part of our meetings Room Team. Receptionists personally welcome and assist all meetings members and provide support and encouragement. Receptionists collect and tally all fees and product sales, weigh members, and distribute member materials.

As part of the Weight Watchers team, you would enjoy:
  • Personal satisfaction in helping others
  • Flexible hours. Compensation and benefits
  • Continual support for staying at your weight goal
