    Positive environment Team atmosphere Great training-paid I worked with a wonderful team in Flint, MI before the center eventually closed due to a lack of revenue. It was a fun fast-paced job where I was on my feet much of the time.

    Cons

    Low pay, needed better sales incentives/commission

    Pros

    Jenny Craig has good work-life balance. There is also very generous PTO accrual for the Home Office.

    Cons

    I made the mistake of not listening to the glassdoor reviews prior to accepting my position. The people are stuck in their ways and only care about the bottom line - making money. It's not so much about the client but more about how much they buy. Employees are also not encouraged to develop professionally which makes us want to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees. To best grow the business you have to be willing to grow your employees.

    Pros

    Nice working environment, lots of training.

    Cons

    FT is not more than 30 hrs, pay 12.50 hr with false hopes of big bonuses. Hours fluctuate and sat sun 7:30-2:30 is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, work out their schedules together. Pay more. Happy employees are way more productive, be real folks. I walked out after 2 months!

    Pros

    Brand actually works. Discounts on the food Free Curves classes Flexibility to go to nearby gym during work hours

    Cons

    Lack of respect for fellow employees Bad pay & benefits No employee appreciation.. A joke of a bonus Proud Favoritism Horrible HR 75% of the people that work here are not the "brand". They will lie to you and overwork you. Everyone there secretly wants to leave..

    Advice to Management

    Advice to potential employees: Make sure you negotiate your pay upfront. Don't go to HR, they are filled with a bunch of gossipers who will spread your "anonymous" complaint like wild fire. Always remember HR is there to prevent lawsuits not help you.. Don't be ridiculous.

    Pros

    The client's.....but beware they no longer exist!!! So bottom line...NO Pro's at Jenny Craig to be honest!!

    Cons

    Be prepared to make 100's of cold calls daily to harass old client's to come back! The cold calling never stops....there will be days where you DO NOT even see client's, one client if you are lucky, more cold calling!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Close up shop already!!!!
