We are passionate about offering hope to those who yearn to be healthy but haven't found the way. Obesity is both a physical and emotional problem, and any client who comes to us for help is always treated with dignity, care, and respect.

That passion and commitment also drives our dedication to creating superior products. We develop and manufacture most of our foods in our wholly owned manufacturing facility just steps from our corporate offices in Owings Mills, Maryland, and our clinical team continually strives to evolve our product lines, while maintaining the highest quality at the fairest price.

    I have been working full-time for Medifast for close to 4 years now and love the FREE Medifast food. I've lost close to 15 pounds in the last few months with the help of Medifast! I also LOVE all of the benefits and employee discounts!


    I wish the profit share program was better.

    Advice to Management

    Revise the profit share program and allow employee's to purchase Medifast stock through company's 401k plan.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Medifast (Chandler, AZ) in February 2015.


    I started with a phone interview to review my resume. From there I was asked to come in for an interview. Upon arrival I was asked to fill out an application with the same information they already had. I meant the recruiter and manager for a time of discussing my qualifications and thoughts on weight loss. They then had me return to the lobby to fill out a form with my thoughts on the interview process.
