    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great hours, supportive, weekly training, and compensated well

    Cons

    5-10 year old leads, where interest may have expired

    Advice to Management

    More incentives towards international compensation. battling accents, and language barriers there comes a bit more of a challenge closing these leads. I am someone who does a good job with it, but am often not compensated as well.

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time

    Pros

    None. Was awful, demanding and tiring.

    Cons

    Everything. They knock your pay down almost immediately. What they are selling isn’t true. I felt bad everything I got someone to spend $4500 to join! I was scamming people

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I am coming up on my second year working with IJL and it has been an overall positive experience. I enjoy working with women who are passionate about what they do and show up to make a difference in people's lives. I work out of the IJL Midwest headquarters and around the executive staff. I have never been apart of a company where the leadership team shows up for their employees when life gets hard or to celebrate their employees when life is good. As an employee I do feel seen and valued. The workday is never boring and it is fun to see when clients find success and to know that we are apart of that.There are different opportunities for monthly bonuses, so it pays off to work hard. There are also little things that make employees feel valued like getting lunch provided after working hard and meeting company goals or coming into work and finding spring flowers on my desk. It really is the little things that can make a difference.

    Cons

    We can't take the dating out of dating. Dating is not always a warm and cozy experience, but it is a process and the journey looks different for everyone.

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Every day is different which makes it exciting! The people that we work with are incredible (both clients and colleagues), and everyone truly cares about the clients' success. Not many people can say that they love their job, but I get to talk about dating and love all day... what could be more fun and rewarding than that?!
    -The office space is beautiful and comfortable (and filled with all the success stories which keep me inspired!)
    -Upper management is deeply invested (financially and emotionally), in individual success and provides all the available resources to hit personal and professional goals.
    -The company offers fun incentives (trips, spa days, etc).
    -There is a fantastic internal support system and we consider one another family. Everyone enjoys working together and helping one another. I know I can reach out to a co-worker for help at any time if I need it.
    -We work REALLY hard but we can still find time to laugh and smile.
    -Never a dull moment, fast-paced, and stimulating
    -Upper management values our input and it shows.

    Cons

    I haven't found many that are specific to this job. It's hard work. It's challenging. But it's work... so it should be. I'd be bored if it weren't challenging!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the high touch approach with the employees as we continue to grow. It sets IJL apart.

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s extremely rewarding to be a part of something that is so life changing for others. If you’re willing to work hard and believe that love makes a difference then IJL Midwest is truly a great place to work. It’s empowering to be able to connect others while reaching your own goals. The leadership team provides a resource that makes such a difference for both clients and employees. Always growing and sharing the benefits like 401 K match and insurance. I feel that my opinion matters and that I’m not just another number like at so many large corporations. Many additional rewards and benefits...

    Cons

    The most difficult part about this industry is not being able to make everyone happy. Some people are negative, or don’t have realistic expectations. It’s really challenging to know that you could make a positive impact but those changes need to be embraced.

    Advice to Management

    Less duplicate paperwork! Save a tree!

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time

    Pros

    Some of the employees are nice.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! This whole company is a scam. They want you to sell relationships to people by saying "We have 3 people in mind for you right now"....when we have no one in mind for you, and have to randomly grab files to try and pitch them to you. They say they have "So many people joining, and we are SO busy"...not busy. Most of the day you're cold calling old clients, and asking if they are still single...and if they are married, we keep calling "because they could be lying or it could end".

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I actually get to help people find someone special. The pay is great. Management is very employee friendly as to time off for appointments. Feedback and training consistent. If your manager is unavailable, another is always on hand to assist immediately. Even if you have a great sales background, be ready to learn. This position is not like other "sales" roles. It requires empathy, understanding and a true interest in helping the client.

    Cons

    It sometimes feels like there are not enough hours in a day. Organization is key!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I feel appreciated and supported!

    Pros

    Great environment, and team culture. Great tenure and longevity seen with Executive Staff at the Corporate Office and good career outlook for growth.

    Cons

    Location: the traffic is packed on the east side of Hallandale, but the Corporate Business Office is moving to a beautiful new location in West Miramar. Can't Wait!

    Let's keep the momentum of growth going!

    Thank you for the review. I am not sure what location you worked at, but all IJL offices are very competitive in their compensation plans.
