    Pros

    I have worked for It's Just Lunch for almost 2 years. I feel the support I have received from the management to be a positive one, especially from my manager. Yes, this is considered to be a sales position, but for me, also one that is truly abouthelping people to find that someone special when so many other ways they have tried to meet people have not worked. We do NOT guarantee marriage, but fun first date with quality like-minded people they would not have had the opportunity to meet. The commission structure is bar none, and in my first year, hit almost 6 figures. So shame on those that write such negative reviews, I understand that we all have our own perceptins and opinions, and are entitled to voice them. However, after reading some of the what I feel were nasty comments, my experience with IJL has been wonderful. There are always 2 sides to everything!!!

    Cons

    This is not for everyone

    Pros

    Base compensation isn't the best. However, if individually we hit our numbers and weekly revenue the commission is unlimited. We can write our own checks as long as all recommendations for our success are followed. This position has definitely taught me a lot about myself. If I have my heart in a career I give it 110%. With that being said, this is very difficult to sell if your head and heart aren't into your client. I've learned to be a truly active listener, as opposed to a face-to-face position, which not only helps me in my professional life but personal as well.

    Cons

    Training was very thorough and there was a lot to take in. It took me about two to three months to really grasp everything and how it all comes together. Everyday I run into something new. So, if you don't have patience, it's most likely not for you.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can give to management is...stay on the same page with one another and your employees. Don't treat each employee exactly the same. We all have a multitude of personalities, strengths and weaknesses, get to know those. Stay focused on the fantastic staff you have and work a little harder to make them flourish, not replace them.

    Pros

    Work from home and PTO

    Cons

    Unrealistic Sales Goals. I fear for my job every time I don't hit a 10k week. Sales Managers question you rather than support you.

    Realistic Goals

    unrealistic sales goals for new and veteran sales associates

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals that can be achieved by the average person within a reasonable amount of time. Remove leads that are not reachable or not interested.

    Pros

    The team you work with are very sociable and accommodate to the schedule you need.

    Cons

    Seems like there is a lot of turnover in the main office. Also when policies change the training is not transferred to remote workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everyone in the loop with better communication.

    Pros

    Consistent training and access to management helps when setting goals and achieving them! Employees are constantly recognized for their efforts and success and are shared in weekly/monthly meetings with all. There are often contests with prizes such as cash, gift cards, etc.

    Cons

    The challenges with this type of career are the same as with any. Setting and reaching goals and maintaining a positive attitude during the slow times. Not every week may be as good as the last, but it will all come back around. Managing time is always a difficult task and it's very important to keep on task as to not fall behind!

    Pros

    The best reason to work for this company and I will give you just a few examples. From the very first day, the positive attitude and support that came thru in training gave me such self confidence and I believe that I have grown tremendously as a human being because of that. I truly believe in what we do and I think that it is the key. I wake up every morning and I am excited to get started and the best part is doing it in the comfort of my home office. The best part of it is that I get to help people find love...does it get any better than this?

    Cons

    I absolutely love my job and to me there is no negative. My clients always tell me you seem so happy doing your job and I am.I am always surprised when I hear of a client that didn't enjoy their experience with IJL but that comes mainly from past employees that may have made unrealistic promises to the clients and that is one reason why they might have not enjoyed their experiences with IJL.

    Advice to Management

    I think the key to the success of our company is mostly based on the management team, the constant training and webinars and the support that we all get. I don’t know of many companies where you can reach your manager at 10:00 at night or as early as 7:30 in the morning, or even get answers to emails on Sundays afternoon and it has happened on a lot of different occasions. They are all so supportive and positive in their approach that they help me tremendously! I have also very close relationship with the dating directors as we are in contact every day and what a great team they are, I couldn’t do my job without them!
