    Pros

    I loved my co-workers
    The food is great

    Cons

    Cold calling
    split shifts up to 3 to 4 hrs
    poor management

    Advice to Management

    Don't take on a Management job if you can't handle it. Learn to be supportive to everyone and don't single one person out. In a small center with only a few employees it will cause animosity.

    Pros

    Close early on Fridays and benefits

    Cons

    Upper management- constantly finding new reasons to threaten us with documentation and are a bunch of stepford wives. Very amusing to watch them in action when the VP comes around.
    Employees- high turnover continues but even harder to even hire a decent person thanks to the new employment agency that is worthless.
    Marketing- it's not really working, employees just saying it is to keep management off our back about doing it 10 hours a week.
    Pay- it's really just insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so naive to believe that these new ideas you are implementing actually work. The jc puppets are just playing the game.

    Pros

    Helping people lose weight and learn how to eat and live better!
    Satisfaction of seeing successes.
    Employees get 50% off food purchases.

    Cons

    Lack of gender diversity.
    Lack of advertising (for every 1 Jenny Craig TV commercial, you see 50 NutriSystem and Weight Watchers).
    Need to have food in stock.
    Need to have more rotation of new menu items to keep clients motivated to keep coming back.
    Expensive

    Advice to Management

    Do you really think employee morale will improve just because you give us a raise so we are making more than minimum wage, then cut the office cleaners to once a week so we have to take out trash, cardboard boxes, clean bathrooms?

    Pros

    Helping others reach weight loss goals, thereby becoming healthier, happier with their body image. Seeing end result is quite rewarding.

    Cons

    Indentured servitude with abysmal compensation. Asked to compensate at center level for adverse consequences of Corporate/Regional Management. No quality of life.

    Advice to Management

    North Castle Partners should have replaced upper management when they bought Jenny Craig in 2013.
