I worked at Wellness Coaches USA full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They pay you real money. I did not like anything else about this position.

Cons

Terrible rotating schedule based on your sites
No formal training
No defined expectations on your daily responsibilities
No career path

Whole business seems like a con game to me. Handing out information on a wellness topic is not an "encounter" yet this place counts it as such. If my current employer wanted to partner with WCUSA I would tell them to save their money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get over yourselves.

    I have been working at Wellness Coaches USA

    Pros

    You get paid well for your job duties. Limited responsibilities may be a perk for some, but others will grow bored due to lack of challenges/responsibilities.

    Independent work environment. You don't have someone looking over your shoulder all the time.

    Job is simple: Keep your clients happy and management will be happy as well.

    Job can be fulfilling, but clients are often blue collar companies such as manufacturing, construction, and transportation which can give coaches a unique set of challenges to overcome.

    Cons

    Very limited interaction with Management, your client feels more like your employer than Wellness Coaches USA.

    Can't take more than 40 hours PTO in a 3 month time period. If you take a week for the holidays, you must wait another 90 days to use any PTO.

    Can't cash out PTO at end of year or when leaving the company

    Management is more concerned with your total coaching numbers than with the quality of the coaching sessions. You may start to feel like you are "pushing" wellness on the employees.

    Significant driving distances are often required depending on client locations.

    Limited opportunity for career growth, you are either a coach or you move into management where you are totally removed from many of the reasons you entered this profession in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to create a better culture where employees feel valued. They do everything they can to save a penny and it is very apparent throughout the company. Expensive healthcare, very limited educational reimbursement, and selfish rules regarding PTO, make it clear Wellness Coaches does what is in the best interest of the company and not the employees.
