    I have been working at SlimGenics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Extensive training in the center and in the classroom. You get to learn a lot about how to help clients stay on track, nutritional supplements and medical conditions. Even though I have a nutrition background, I still learned a lot. Great team environment, everyone cares about their clients and each others success. Changing peoples lives.

    Cons

    There is a lot of information to learn at the beginning. Stick with it though because it starts to come together in the first few weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide us with follow up training, we learn a lot. Build more centers in Ohio, we have 8 centers and Colorado has 18!

    I worked at SlimGenics full-time

    Pros

    The clients are very nice and its very satisfying to help them reach their goals. If you enjoy meeting and helping people this position is great but the problem lies in upper management. They do not appreciate their employees who are overworked with horrible wages.

    Cons

    No appreciation for their employees. When you meet revenue goals, they reward you with PRODUCT! A $2 snack for hitting your goal.
    The hours are dreadfully long and the pay structure is horrible. Upper management complains about gossip among the centers yet upper management continually gossips about co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure your pay, hire part time people, allow for sick days and stop the drama from upper management.

    Pros

    Helping others lose weight and seeing client reach fitness goals. You get benefits after ninety days. You learn about supplements.

    Cons

    All About Sales, Sales, Sales - Commission based pay
    Very Unprofessional and unorganized
    They want to hire those with a degree and fitness background and pay them $8-10/HR
    Very long week days & worked every Saturday
    Shady and dishonest management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees - examine your high turnover rate

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing!!! Except the clients walking in the door.

    Cons

    The management is a joke. They lied to all of the new employees from day one. Training consisted of role playing with other trainees to memorize a series of sales scripts. Ridiculous!! A complete waste of time for anyone that has a college degree or a chance of working for a real company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pack it up and go back to Colorado. Maybe people out there don't mind being lied to and treated like a second-class citizen. In Ohio, we don't abide by lying. We are honest, hard-working and not afraid to tell the truth.

    The job is great, the company is awful.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at SlimGenics

    Pros

    A very good stepping stone for those who need a job now
    Awesome if you don't support yourself
    Most of the employees are nice and welcoming, I definitely made some life long friends
    You get paid time off for holidays

    Cons

    Super unorganized
    Drama is all brought down by upper management then blamed on employees
    They lie about how much money you can make, as of recent they say you can make 50,000 per year. Maybe two employees in the entire company hit that mark ( I made 20,000)
    Decisions are made based on feelings and pride rather than logic
    Multiple managers have shown up DRUNK more than once and have still not been fired
    They rarely promote from within, hiring managers who have never done the job
    Nothing happens seamlessly, there is always something forgotten or a typo
    Really there is no room for advancement even after you may become a manager, that's as far as you can go

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your resources and promote counselors that you already have. Stop lying in interviews, it just makes dissatisfied employees later when they realize they are only making $9 per hour. Also, become managers and leaders! As area sales managers you two need to be the most positive, helpful resources that counselors have. And you're neither. Fire people who show up drunk. No matter what their troubles are, there is no room for that in a management position. It just makes everyone look bad.

    Pros

    Aiding people in weight loss was extremely rewarding

    Cons

    The position was very mundane, and the pay is very little. I was told with my background I would have no trouble making a decent living on commission. Not exactly the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be up front with you interviewees about pay and growth before wasting time and money to train them
