Not a bad temporary job, not a career.

Current Employee - Weight Loss Specialist in Denver, CO

I have been working at SlimGenics full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

If you enjoy talking with people and don't mind talking about nutrition and weight loss for the majority of the day and also have a passion for helping people, you would enjoy this position.

Cons

The pay isn't great, especially during the slow season (i.e. the holiday's when no one cares about being on a diet or investing in a weight loss program). The hours are very long and Saturday's are a required work day.

Advice to Management

In center manager's are great! There is very little communication between upper management (external) and in-center weight loss counselors.

    Pros

    They pay 100% of your health insurance which is great. Not many companies will do this, which is why it's nice. Depending on which center you work in, you will either love or hate your coworkers.

    Cons

    The amount of money you make at this job is very inconsistent. They say you will make 40k a year but that is true for their top 5 producers. The hours aren't the best either. You work 3 days 8-6:30 and 2 days 8-2. You only get Sundays off and one day off during the week so you never have 2 days off in a row. If you have a family, this job will be very hard to maintain considering the hours. You are also expected to clean the entire center and do inventory and share ONE computer with all staff. If you cannot sell over 5k in nutritional supplements in one week then this job is NOT for you. The managers are also expected to sell 5k even though they get an override of the center and their pay isn't dependent upon how much they sell. I worked there for over a year and saw a huge amount of turnover. Their company model is not set up well for Program Advisors and they do not treat them very well. Everyone in the corporate office seems to be treated well and everyone else except Program Advisors. If you like working 12 hours shifts for $10 an hour then this job is for you!
