GREAT PROGRAM! Weightloss that was easy to understand and fully focused on the long term success of its clients. Fun and energetic place to work.
Lack of organization and training from upper management. Each center is expected to hold its own leading to slower sharing knowledge and new information to consultants.

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Metabolic Research Center (Arvada, CO) in July 2013.
I was contacted by phone and asked to come in for an interview. I went to the interview, and while waiting had to hear a very irate customer be calmed down and patronized. He was told he wasn't following the program and needed to buy more supplements. I had the interview and was told I would be contacted for a 2nd interview in a few days in my home location. During that interview I was asked repeatedly if I thought I can do the job, I am a Registered Dietitian, and I think its well within my expertise. One comment made by the woman interviewing me was that they don't like to hire dietitians because may dietitians do not like the fact that they use artificial sweeteners in the products. I had to lie and say even though I didn't use them myself, there was no harm in using them for a short period of time to lose weight. If I was to have gotten a call back, I would have refused the job anyway due to their pushy sales practices and taking advantage of customers that are so vulnerable and desperate to do anything to lose weight!
- Are you sure you can pretend to promote a product that is not in line with your beliefs? i.e.. artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, additives, preservatives, GMO, synthetic vitamins...etc. 1 Answer
