I worked at Jenny Craig

Pros

I feel that there is potential to change lives and make great money, depending on the season. Build great relationships with people and growth within company.

Cons

There should be a stronger base salary during the months when there are absolutely zero leads generating business and a higher pay structure to retain the legitimate and passionate employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not pay consultants on a commision for simply placing food orders. Pay program directors a strong base salary, with potential for bonus based on performance, rather than commision only.

    I have been working at Jenny Craig

    Pros

    Able 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

    Cons

    Pay 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get it together and pay your employees

    Pros

    Do not need a college degree, Sense of fulfillment, Food discounts.

    Cons

    UNethical management, favoritism & nepotism, unfairness in corporate culture, rules not fairly enforced, gossip, shitty hours, low pay, HORRIBLE benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise Patty Larchet to introduce more testosterone into this environment. I now work in finance - which is almost all men and it is infintesimilly more professional. Do not promote your corporate culture to turn your employees into stepford wives, which is exactly how women who stay there and grow start to act. Pay your employees more than just min wage and secure some better benefits.
