I worked at Results Weight Loss

Pros

Clients and co workers at center level

Cons

Very low pay for managers and inconsistant as well - from one manager to another. Upper management were always changing policies and procedures, lack of consistancy on what expectations were, disregard for any type of family life - no work life balance. I witnessed emplyoees being asked to do things on the fly (because of lack of preparation and communication) that would negatively impact their family life. No real technology to monitor clients, inventory, money, etc. Administratively was consistant with 20 years ago. No computers no pos no way to track clients other than relying on what someone is writing in a file.

High pressure sales and one week you could have outstanding sales, miss one and be treated as a failure. Very stressful for the sales person to 'get the sale'. no real understanding among upper management that sales in any industry is a rollercoaster and is not consistant one week to the next. Very hard to make budget with no traffic coming in the door.

The only consistincy about results seems to be the fact they are always running at a loss and on the verge of bankruptcy, has been taken over/ bought out several times. Very stressful to know if 3-6 down the road you will have a job.

Also - loved to fire long term employees for no real justifiable reason. Management was great at building you up one day and firing you the next. I would guess that most employees are under 1 year senority and have zero real training in any type of related industry. They culture was to not hire anyone with any real knowledge of nutrition. Most long term employees with any knowledge or experience are gone, or on their way out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay center managers competive wages for the responsibliy assumed. Close non performing centers and use those monies to refresh older centers. Stop micro managing. Hire all management (assistant and above) that have experience in leadership, fiscal accountablity, and customer service/sales and pay based on experience. Nurtition is also a key componant in background, as well as matching personality to this type of industry.

    I worked at Results Weight Loss full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The training and collaboration between co-workers was great! We supported each other to give our clients the best support they can get in supporting their weight loss experience. We had a sure plan of action in how to get the customer to say "yes" and get them started on their way to weight loss success.

    Cons

    They hours of operations were varied and could get in the way if you are a student needing to attend classes on a regular basis or if you have children. There was not a lot of support for working mothers.

    I worked at Results Weight Loss

    Pros

    If you need to lose weight--you can go on the program for free and get a discount on the products. There are some absolutely great clients who do appreciate how you can help them.

    Cons

    Long hours and micromanaged by inexperienced management. Some clients can be difficult--but usally they are frustrated by company always selling something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you get an offer to work--run for the hills. Provide better training and roll out changes completely. Communication is two way not dictatorial.
