Pros

You really DO change people's lives. Helping people help themselves.

Cons

COMMISSION BASED PAY. No financial recognition. They give "move points" which mean nothing. It is not "all about helping the client" it's about "selling and upgrading the client". The commission based pay brings out the worst in coworkers. Company gives in to brown-nosers and kiss a**es. You have to be really fake a lot of the time. Since the economy is so bad right now, 8 out of 10 sales people in our market are making less than $10 per hour!

Advice to Management

PAY YOUR EMPLOYEES!!!! GET RID OF THE COMMISSION STRUCTURE.

    I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Supporting health and wellness - clients reaching weight loss goals
    -food discounts -free membership
    -private offices
    - good leadership at Centre level CD understands
    -food taste good

    Cons

    My full-time position went from 38 hrs to maybe 12 hrs
    -CD has to see all my clients unless double bookings
    -lost health benefits
    -no quality of life to pay bills
    CD's being pushed out to be replaced by Site Supervisors
    I am expected to generate more actives by outbound calls but in the same sentence I am told to leave after I have no clients - two contradicting messages
    centre does not lack active base - CD given full sales hours 40 hrs all dedicated to client sales yet still expected to do payroll - conference reports -target -projection-conference calls - scheduling , so I have no hours , no support that I may give to centre,because MD calling to send me home
    -work alone and safety policy wants door locked even if with client which means "don't come here "

    Advice to Management

    Are you HR or VP even aware of the disaster being created at centre level ?
    My advice instead of pushing your MD to use bully tactics , be professional and have in Integrity to be honest with employees -you should be the people to get message to staff such as emails of hour cuts and centre;s need to close early with no notice should be directly from the head VP not MD's if that is what the company actually wants done

    I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love supporting my clients. Amazing people.

    Cons

    Jenny Craig has horrendously archaic employment practices. I am not aware of any other companies that enter into full-time employment agreements with employees then arbitrarily reduce hours to less than 20 hours a week.Employment suitable only for those seeking casual employment and not requiring a base income.

    Advice to Management

    Honour your employment agreements. The responses posted here from management/HR lack sincerity.
