    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can control the amount of money you make depending on the time you put in! You can run your job like it is your own business in terms of contacts and work ethic.

    Cons

    You do work with a script and there are certain ways of doing things. Must make lots and lots of calls. All of this is fine for me, however if you are NOT a self starter and like to do "your own thing" this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Everything is great. There are weekly trainings and all of the staff and management really is out there to make sure you are successful!! Nothing negative to say.

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to work from home. No micro management. You can say whatever you want to clients.

    Cons

    You make minimum wage & commission. (The commission structure ensures if you sell a $2800 or $4500 plan, you will only make $25 or $45. They limit your leads so you don't earn commission.) IJL gives the same 5 people all of the leads & hires unsuspecting people who work their butts off for minimum wage. It's a total scam. Another con is having to listen to the squeaky IJL voices & fake attitudes of management.

    Advice to Management

    Even your senior reps have figured out your business model. You better figure out something quick before the whole company goes out of business!

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting conversation starter when asked "What do you do?" Some of your co-workers (except Monday - Wednesday). Learning the art of manipulation "bending the truth" from the pros. The fascinating lies as to why another person no longer works in the establishment. Telling the clients some more fascinating lies as to why so-so is no longer working there. Learning that everyone will eventually leave to...

    Cons

    Having to defend getting a college degree to work in this insane asylum. Watching the high turnover rate at work. Being underpaid, and hearing the same lies over and over again. Caring about your work and watching your efforts get stomped on.

    Advice to Management

    It's 2012, not 1950. Corporate needs to step in when franchise owners or "directors who've been there 10+" start running a muck! Costumer satisfaction is important. Coordinators are not verbal punching bags! For all that they do, they deserve a decent paycheck and common courtesy and a lil respect to say the least.
