I was counting the days until I left this horrid place.

Weight Loss Consultant (Former Employee)
San Bruno, CA

ProsPotential for decent take home pay for a job that only requires a H.S. diploma.
Next to impossible to get fired.
Can waste time by shooting the "s**t" with longtime clients in your office.
If you can manage to stick around for more than a year it can become pretty cushy. You become good friends with a lot of your clients so it's pretty laid back.

ConsDisgruntled, middle aged housewives who don't want to actually put any effort into their weight loss and then make up endless excuses for why they didn't stick to the program.
Listening to people complain all day (being an underpaid shrink)
Management and corporate don't give a rats a** about employees. Managers in centres try to keep you down. Very difficult to move from In centre positions to corporate. The worst hours and schedules you've ever heard of in your life. Holidays, 7:00 am on Saturday, "split shifts" which is 8-12 in mornings and then 4-8 in evening. OH, and they also like to go in and move around hours on your time card so you don't get any overtime hours. In fact, three employess filed a class action suit for this very reason and I got $1,800 in back wages (score!)

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to treat employees with more respect be grateful to the ones who actually stick it out for longer than a year because its no easy feat.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Love the clients, hate the company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Carlsbad, CA

    I have been working at Jenny Craig


    Pros: Very rewarding to see clients achieve results Program materials are very straight forward and easy for employees… Cons: Management has no regard for individual employees' needs, refuses to allow employees to choose working hours that suit them - even when centre's needs are… Advice to Senior Management: Make a concerted effort to find out why so many people become constipated on the program - fix it! Get the grit out of anytime bars.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
