Pros

You do get a chance to change people's lives if they lose weight, and watch them change. You get attached to the people you meet who really benefit from your training.

Cons

Jenny Craig does not value its employees and considers 30 hours full time. But at the rate of pay plus commission, 30 hours is not enough to support yourself. Many consultants must maintain a second job to make ends meet. Management also sees clients and takes the food commission whe consultants are available, reducing the amount for hourly employees dependent upon that income.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to listen to the employees, and stop the food and sales commissions from going to the center directors, who get a base salary plus a significantly higher commission for every percentage point over 100% of corporate set quota than the hourly employees. Hourly Employees are on 5% point tiers only over quotas.

    Pros

    meet new people, commission based plus hourly= you can control your paychecks (typically)

    Cons

    expect way too much out of you on the DAILY, upper management NOT being professional or in touch with the individual centres!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please treat staff like actual people and help people grow within the company, be more in touch with the centres

    Pros

    In Centre great people working hard to help clients be successful. Good team environment when it the right team. Some benefits are good, good PTO but so short staffed you can take it.

    Cons

    Everyone above the Centre Director level lies, creates a poor working environment, cares only about protected there job, and are not business savey at all! All the reviews I have read are right on target. The upper management is running Jenny stores into the ground. Maybe this is what Nestlé wants...if so its working. They treat staff so poorly everyone is quitting, this excludes really poor pay. I have had full time employees going to the food banks to feed their family because the pay is so bad.
    Even with all the "cut backs" the upper management still travels all over via air which is costly and they stay in really nice hotels all the while telling 'us' to cut back hours. Absolutely no loyalty to their long time tenured employees. And the training and the money they spend on the WORST training I have ever had to do....they brag how great the training is cause upper management doesn't dare to tell the trust..it sucks and costs so much. Why so much? Because after all the 'testing' once they get all the new materials out and after months of it not working they scrap it all!!!! All the hype about the training and then we throught it all away. Ask anyone who works there and they will tell you the upper management are useless. The Centres DON'T need them 'visiting' just to spend money which could be used to pay the staff in Center more which would make the company money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, if they really ever read this site they would have to be stupid not to change things...so I don't know if it makes any difference but here it goes. Remove the OLD upper management that have been there way to long running the company in the ground. The CEO, VP of North America, the DDs and DMs and most of the MDs since they are so scared to do anything now cause everyone in the field is getting let go every chance they (upper management) get. Let the CDs really run the stores with the employees that are really go at what they do. Also have weight stipulations on employees WW you have to be within 5 lbs of a healthy weight. You can promote client sto get healthy and stay that way if your staff can't do it. It's embarrassing to go to a Center when everyone is very overweight.
