I worked at Jenny Craig full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The one on one support is what sets the Jenny program ahead in the weight loss business. Supporting Clients and watching their success made me feel good to go to work everyday. I made good money for the work I did. Made lots of connections and friendships I'll take with me when I go.

Cons

The food is too expensive. So many times it was so hard having to say goodbye to clients before their weightloss was complete because they couldn't afford to continue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Raise the conultants hourly wage to compensate for the clients not buying the JC food, and doing more food on their own.

    Former Employee - Jenny Craig Consultant in Arlington, TX

    I worked at Jenny Craig full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to make money and calculate the money that you want to bring home.
    Great clients, I met some pretty amazing people.
    Program works, food is delicious.
    Innovative ideas from within and always looking to improve.

    Cons

    If you aren't a butt kisser getting ahead may be hard. Gettting clients and having them stolen is no fun. People manipulate their numbers in their own favor so competition is usually not fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the happiness of your Consultants because they are where your money comes from.

    Former Employee - Program Director

    I worked at Jenny Craig full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    met some great people. Clients and co-workers.

    Cons

    get an award for being best program directer in the entire market in the same meeting you're receiving a write up for not "meeting quota". Unrealistic sales goals. "Consultation" time with clients so limited it became just a food ordering session with no possibility to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less pushing of prepackaged calorie limited food, more focus on helping clients. Different pay structure.
