    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working for Its Just Lunch has been such a great experience. They provide ongoing training, support, and a positive work environment. I have never worked for a company with the ongoing training, support, and positive management that they have at IJL. I love going to work everyday because of the positive passionate energy that makes working fun. Everyone is so passionate about the clients, their wants, needs and helping them reach their relationship goals. It is a great feeling to work with my clients, I care about all of them and so does management. They provide incentives, training, support, and work very hard to help you reach your goals.

    Cons

    For me there are no cons, you have to have the ability to learn and believe in what you do. Work hard for your clients and have the passion to change lives. For me it is all positive, but if you are not a compassionate person then it could be difficult because you really have to care for your clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Thank you for not only changing our clients lives but mine as well.

    Pros

    You can work from home if you choose

    Cons

    It's Just Lunch does not deliver what it promises to their clients. They only match people according to age and location. New inside sales reps are given leads ten year old leads to call and more often than not the phone numbers no longer belong to those leads or the people are married. They continue to call people on a monthly basis that asked to be put on the "do not call list". This is basically a telemarketing job where you have to lie to get sales. Run for your life!

    Worse Job I ever had....gave 1 star only because I had to.

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Dishonesty from day one. Lie, cheat do whatever it takes to make a sell. 22 Years in business however very few employees have over 2 years seniority. Ask why before you take this job. Ask why are masses of sales specialist hired every 2 weeks. Ask why masses of employees are fired every 2-3 weeks. The money is made by only the top 3-4 % of sales specialist. No integrity in this company. Look into the lawsuits before you take this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are the only ones that benefit from this company, that includes clients and employees. Rethink this. Stop forcing employees to write good reviews.

    Pros

    This job was entertaining at best.

    Cons

    The company has no values. What they pitch to their customers is not what the customer gets. They make it seem as if the customer is getting high-end customized service and that there are dozens of great matches for these customers. The reality is that it is a call center and when it comes to match making, anything goes...as long as it's a boy and a girl, it's a match!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the call center and go back to the original concept.

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best part of my job honestly has been my interactions with my clients. It is so humbling and rewarding to be a key player in the most intimate aspect of someone's life. Dating is emotional and it is not always smooth sailing, however there is a certain confidence that comes from the ability to converse with and be respected by leaders of industries.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is very difficult to manage your time well because of the volume of work that comes with various positions. Management is always willing to provide tips and advice on how to juggle and prioritize the required tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has been great! The VP of customer service has a unique and admirable ability to garner respect, but still create a level of comfort that makes you want to open up and be yourself. That is not an easy task.

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time

    Pros

    A well-established company, unique product/service, matching clients is a learned and continuously perfected art, fun work environment, no day is the same - NEVER bored!, success stories from clients are a regular occurrence.

    Cons

    Although I don't consider it a "con", hard work is the name of the game. If you want to be successful, you have to put in the work.

    The service being offered is obviously emotional. This means clients can be emotional at times... again, not negative, just an aspect that can bring challenges

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue employee development.

    Pros

    The business idea is great, the process and integrity behind it are sickening. No pros

    Cons

    The company misleads potential clients to sign on. If you don't have very many matches, you will be set up with whoever is active in your area. Potential clients are told that there are many matches in the area when in reality there could be a handful or less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't matter, they are at the top of the food chain.
