    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is unlimited income potential. Base pay and commission is the standard equation for a sales job. At IJL, there are so many more opportunities to make money. There are consistent incentive opportunities on top of commission. From fun raffles to monthly bonus' opportunities to surprise pop-up contests! It's exciting because there are so many opportunities to make additional money. It's so motivating knowing if you work hard the income potential is truly unlimited. I love working for a company that wants me to succeed, and that is so encouraging! The level of professionalism, positivity and support received on a daily basis is so refreshing. We are treated with dignity and respect, and are very well taken care of. I know here at It's Just Lunch, I am not just a number. I am an individual and a person. There is always concern for our wellbeing, whether it be through safety practices during the pandemic, or any other changes that we are effected by. I believe this company treats it's employees fairly. There are firm policies in place, that are strictly followed. When problems occur, they are dealt with consistently in a fair way.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to share.

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

    Pros

    Decent base salary to start.

    Cons

    Leads-during the interview process I asked a lot of questions about leads and was reassured they had more than enough leads. They brag about the quality and abundance but it is all smoke and mirrors. There are very few new leads coming in so you might get 1/day and of those many are bogus, bad quality Facebook or instagram clicks not a quality lead. In reality they expect you to cold call leads up to 20 years old even married people or people that asked not to be called again which is illegal but they don’t care. Most of the old leads have bad numbers and emails but they keep rotating them around to different reps so it looks like you have more leads then you do. Managers take the best leads which is infuriating. Sales reps are struggling to hit their numbers but managers cherry pick the leads. They try to project a team atmosphere but make no mistake it is very individualized. Once you go thru training it is next to impossible to get a manager to help. Since it is a revolving door of employees they are constantly hiring new reps and managers are always in training. Most reps do not make it a year, there are a handful of reps that make it but most see right away how the company operates and the opportunities they talk about during the interview are not achievable. Then if you do get a few sales the customer service is so bad they sometimes just cancel. Read the reviews they are very accurate online about how clients are treated. Matchmakers stick clients on hold without consent so they don’t have to match them, it is horrible how they ignore clients calls and emails. If they actually followed thru and offered the services we sell this company would be incredible.

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

    Pros

    This company is unprofessional in their hiring process and does not follow up with potential candidates as promised after interviews. They waste your time and efforts only in the end to be told lies. It's really not worth it.

    Cons

    They are unprofessional and don't respect candidates, I could only imagine how they treat their employees.

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

    Pros

    Great bonus structure, fun work incentives, helping others find love

    Cons

    Getting client's feedback becomes their opportunity to use you as a punching bag. Clients never want to think they are the problem with their dating life. It is always the other person. Prepare to be a therapist in giving advice and making them see the light.

    Thanks for your honest and candid review. Dating is fun, but can be emotional too, which is why our Matchmakers have to be compassionate and understanding. It sounds like you enjoyed your time at IJL and we truly appreciate your review.

    Pros

    They steal money from clients and won’t give refunds. Please be cautious.

    Cons

    They are stealing people’s money. Please please do not pay them for any services or you will loose out.

    We firmly believe this is a fraudulent review. IJL has not hired any new employees in that NYC market in several years. Thus, there are no employees working in that area that have been employed for less than one year. All employees in that market are tenured. Furthermore, the statements contained therein are false and IJL has and continues to proudly service its clients in and around the NYC area.

    Pros

    Great training, inspiring support from all levels of management and co-workers. Ongoing training and support. Positive feedback on a daily basis. Ability to make as much money as your hard work can produce. Fun contests and incentives on a regular basis.

    Cons

    There are no negatives unless you consider working hard and being compensated for that hard work a negative thing. Nothing good is easy.

    Pros

    There are a multitude of reasons that I love to work at IJL including but not limited to; growth, stability, fun, challenging, team oriented, never a dull moment. There is always someone around to help or explain something when you are unsure. You have the ability to work independently yet be apart of a loving, caring, growing team all of the time. They constantly make sure you are trained and prepared through monthly and weekly trainings. All of the VP's and the CEO keep an open door at all times and make it easy to talk to them. This company definitely sets their employees up for success within the company and outside of the company. This nation has been dealing with a pandemic for the last few months and within that time we have remained operating and in the scariest of times I have been offered job security and even went from a temporary employee to a permanent employee (woo hoo) Sadly, while many companies have shut down I have been so lucky to move up in the company and I plan to continue to do so! Another benefit is they have great benefits for you and your family!

    Cons

    None that I have come across
