The worst job experience ever.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Pros- Enjoyed helping people lose weight
- Made great connects with my clients, which will help with networking in the future.

Cons- Recruiters lie to you about commission, upward mobility potential, weekends you are required to work and holidays during the interview process.
- Do not have a standard protocol for conducting performance reviews, thus making it impossible to receive a promotion or pay increase.
- Hours for Center Employees were constantly being expanded on weekends without providing extra staff to help cover those hours or compensation for current employees.
- Most centers are understaffed requiring extra work for employees as well as limited time off. No balance between life/work.
- A lot of clients returned programs due to medical problems they had after eating the food.
- Poor HR

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on retaining talented employees. When your employees leave you lose a large percentage of your client base, which hurts your revenue.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: The benefits that are offered are good. Cons: Center employees are treated very poorly. Center employees are expected to work very long hours including holidays. No one in the company ever seems… Advice to Senior Management: Start caring about your center employees and listen to them. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
