this is a very high pressure sales job

Counselors (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Quick Weight Loss full-time

Prosthere is potential to make decent money if you are a very good sales person

Consthis company is all about sales,counselors have a very high sales quota and managers salary is completely commission based. They make you pay for every thing you need, name tag,t- shirts, lab coat, samples to give in your classes. company advertises loose 30 pounds for 30 dollars but in actuality the plans cost at least $1000 and much more if a client needs to lose allot of weight.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Co-Workers, Tricky Sales Tactics

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

I worked at Quick Weight Loss full-time for less than a year

ProsWonderful staff and approachable management. Thorough training. Getting positive feedback from satisfied clients always felt great. The company quickly promotes hard working employees in recognition of their success.

ConsThe sales tactics used were shady. I always felt that we were tricking people into non-refundable packages. Using the hard-sell technique often made clients upset, making everyone feel uncomfortable. Also, very long work days!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Rewarding in more ways than one.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Quick Weight Loss

ProsHelping people lose weight and get healthy is a rewarding occupation, and if you are good at what you do, you can make good money doing it too. Yes, you have to "sell" the program: it's not free! So you have to explain to clients what they are paying for. But the program works so its easy to sell. When you show people the before and after pictures of actual clients it practically sells itself. Lots of opportunity for job growth as they promote from within.

ConsI think on review sites in general you see more negative reviews than positive ones, because happy people are simply less motivated to post about their experiences. Yes, if you do not do a good job of selling the program and helping clients lose weight, then you will make less money at this job and will probably not be as happy. When you're paid for performance then you have to do a good job. That is not necessarily a bad thing. And like with every job there are always going to be disagreements between some people: each center has a small number of people working there, so when you all get along its great, when there are disagreements it can be a problem. However management is good at resolving these issues.

Empty promises and horrible hours

Weight Loss Counselor (Current Employee)
Plantation, FL

I have been working at Quick Weight Loss full-time for less than a year

ProsOne week day off for counsleors

ConsThe rest of the week you will work ridiculous hours. They promise you that you will make all this money when really you never go about 12 an hour. Everyone is really nice when you start but then the backstabbing starts. You have to watch your back in this company. A lot of work for barely any money.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop moving employees around...THE CLIENTS DONT LIKE IT.
