    I have been working at WeightNot (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a sales person to find a company that not only says they are ethical but really are is rare. The support you get from everyone from day 1 is unlike anything I have ever experienced. From the top down I have had nothing but an AMAZING experience. I have worked in sales my whole life and this is honestly the best job and company I have ever worked for. They want you to have a good work/life balance and want you to be honest with people. I have so much passion not only for this company but for what they stand for and their product. I feel so appreciated daily by everyone in this company!

    Cons

    I haven't found any yet

    I have been working at WeightNot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    WeightNot ia an extradinary company. Their program is top notch and truly does weightloss the right way. It's very easy to sell a product when you truly believe in it and know that great people stand behind their word. WeightNot has given me the work/life balance that I have been looking for. Their coaches truly train and support you from the beginning. I have never worked for a company that really takes the time to train and develope their employees the way WeightNot has. I enjoy working here.

    Cons

    6 day work week, but they are very flexible and accommodating to your needs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    I worked at WeightNot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay. I enjoyed working from home. Directors and CEO's were great leaders.

    Cons

    Work hours do tend to be long with minimal breaks, however, they did cover this during the interview process and job description. Employment is contingent upon passing a very long exam. I wish I would have known this before I was hired, I would not have taken the job. This caused a lot of stress. There are consequences if sales goals are not reached - yet one more thing that was not covered in the interview and hiring process. I was under the impression this was a counseling position with a bit of a sales component. I was not told it was a HUGE sales component with sales quotas and consequences that came with it. You will receive a lot of criticism in regards to your work, character, personality and many other areas of your demeanor and work ethic. Constructive criticism is great but there is a fine line between that and being plain rude and talking down to an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Over all - make sure your employees are treated with respect, especially those that work hard and are still in a learning phase. Do not make them feel horrible about making small mistakes which happens in a training and learning phase. Do not use derogatory language and attack their personal character, there are ways to approach employees without reprimanding them every second of the day. Check your managers/team leaders managing style and make sure they are not holding an authoritarian type of personality when managing employees.

    I worked at WeightNot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Thorough training and a well designed, nutritionally sound weight control program.

    Cons

    Be prepared to be essentially chained to your desk- but being a call center I guess you would expect that, just know what you are signing up for! High turnover rate not just for that reason but also because goals are set too high, NO benefits at all, very little communication with owners - and evening and weekend hours are mandatory.

    Advice to Management

    Please respect your employees. You have lost a lot of great talent because you did not have consistent operational procedures in place. SOPs are important - as are goals that are actually attainable. Too much damage control occurs there on a daily basis. Sorry, but I just don't believe the positive reviews posted here!

    Pros

    This in an amazing team environment even while working from home. The training you receive is outstanding and sets you up to be successful from Day 1. They encourage and foster growth with all of their employees, they actually want you to succeed.

    Cons

    As with any company they are growing and things change, but all the changes have been for the best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. This is a great company that I feel honored to work for.

    Pros

    Great team driven environment, Home Office a Plus! Training devoted to ensuring the highest level of customer service. Sales job with more leads than time to contact them all.....a refreshing change. Very efficient and rapid response support system in place. Though working remote, you're not working "alone." Keys to success; Strong work ethic, self discipline and drive for results.

    Cons

    At this time I am very satisfied with my position.

    I have been working at WeightNot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work remotely as a membership specialist. I feel that management has created a very positive and supportive environment. They are always available to help with any questions regarding the weight loss program, prospects or technical issues. They provided all of the specialists with laptops and phones, access to tech support 24/7 and they have done a great job creating a fun, team-oriented environment. They have a good and fair compensation package. They are flexible with the work schedule and time off.

    Cons

    The expectation to increase hours at the end of every month can sometimes be stressful when creating work life/balance...but what sales position doesn't expect a push to meet goals?

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work! It will be fun to grow with the company!
