Current Employee - Program Director in Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time for less than a year

Pros

The chance to make a positive difference in people's lives by supporting their weight loss goals.
Vast menu options. Centres are located in convenient, desirable locations. The benefit package offered for full-time is competitive. All employees receive a good opportunity to lose weight on the Jenny Craig program.

Cons

Some of the centres are mismanaged and there is little to no accountablity. Some centres have an alarming high turnover.
Many clients drop off the program because of preservatives in the food items and they often complain the food is too expensive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nestle: If you want a return on your investment, you will have to dig deep. Centre Directors that work in Centres with an unusual high turnover should be investigated.

    I worked at Jenny Craig full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    REALLY educating and motivating people to achieve and to maintain their weight loss goals

    Cons

    Where do I begin?
    1. In order to make money, consultants must keep clients on Jenny food. That's how we're paid. As soon as a client achieves their goal and can maintain, the consultant's pay is affected.
    2. Earnings vary based on holidays, gas prices, weather and more.
    3. Base is ~$7+/hr. Difficult to get excited about
    4. Workload is unrealistic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak to field employees before the next big promotion or marketing initiative. They KNOW what clients want, need and loathe
