Run Run As Fast As You Can

Program Director (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

ProsAble to meet people and "change lives" if they follow the program. If you work for a good center director then the job is easy, if not then it can be HELL- I was lucky, my friend who works at another center not so lucky she is in constant conflict with co-workers fighting for commission

ConsPay Sucks Commission Structure Sucks $8.65 base pay per hr. Long hours 9am to 7pm half day on Sat. Some centers are open Sundays. Benefits suck and cost almost $100 per month for indivdual but if your making $8.00 that is a major chunk from your check! Medical benefits are limited as well.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet it together and pay your employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Weight Loss Consultant (Former Employee)
    San Bruno, CA

    I worked at Jenny Craig


    Pros: Potential for decent take home pay for a job that only requires a H.S. diploma. Next to impossible to get fired.
