I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time

Pros

-Helping people change their lives
-Meeting some really great and interesting people
-Working with others who really wantto help people
-Great/Healthy way to lose weight when the program is followed

Cons

-Poverty level pay
-No support from corporate
-Terrible communication from the company
-Demoralizing to not be able to help people like we should be able to
-Constant phone work (almost cold calling past clients)
-Too expensive to keep clients long term
-Long hours/not enough time off

The company is one of the worst paying, and least supportive ( to it's employees) that I have every worked for. I , and others, have to have a second job to simply be able to pay rent and eat. We provide therapy to clients who don't have the money to pay a professional psychiatrist. You are a cheerleader, a confidant, a shoulder to cry on, and a therapist all for almost no pay. The commission scale is a joke, and doesn't reward you for actually getting client to their goal weight. The emotional weigh down from taking on all of your clients problems is crushing. When you don't have a client in center, you are calling from lists of people who have quit the program. Most of the live calls bring hostility from the former clients, and you're often hung up on and yelled at for calling to try to bring people back to the program. There is almost no advertising. Consultants are expected to bring most of the business in by calling people in any free time. The hours are long and there is no time off. Holidays are all worked ( even when corporate is closed) and trying to find someone to cover for you to take your time off is a nightmare

Advice to Management

Pay your employees better and take over some of the stress of advertising and getting people through the door. Make changes to update the company and get rid of the ridiculous PPH and FDA requirements.

    Pros

    Great client interaction, helping people to succeed with weight loss

    Cons

    Focusing on numbers and not the people, striving to hit quotas, calling past members repeatedly even when they said they don't want to come back to the program

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and you'll have less of a turnover rate.
