    I worked at Diet Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best part was watching clients transform. The programs really do get the weight off clients. They would be down on themselves and within a few weeks feeling so much better. We got free products so we could work on our own weight and no weekends. The corporation offered a very generous commission program so the more people you help, the more money you would make. My commissions always were higher than my bi-weekly check, so it was like getting 3 checks a month instead of 2 on a regular job. My husband was transferred out of state where there was no DC or I would have stayed with the company more years.

    Cons

    Some clients did not follow the program, so you felt like an adult babysitter. When the clients do it, they get fantastic results. It was slower in December as not many people want to diet, so that would make for long days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the clients and employees first and you will continue to thrive.

    Pros

    Loved working with clients. Great pay. Paid holidays and vacation within 6 months of start. They always did special happys for the staff and the franchise owners wanted to support and help you grow.

    Cons

    It is very redundant. You say the same thing and hear the same thing. The center is very busy, so sometimes getting a full hour lunch is hard.

    Advice to Management

    The guys that owned the place were great. I enjoyed having full weekends off and I appreciated the ongoing training.
