    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time

    Pros

    Great Staff. Great commission structure.The entire company(including upper management) is very supportive and focused on helping you succeed. If you are coach-able and open, you can do very well. I love the positive, can-do attitude that is present on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Not a con really but this job isn't for everyone. If you do not like making numerous phone calls a day or are not open to being coached and learning new things, this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    Love the opportunity to make up to 22% percent commission and have large two week paychecks. Very organized training curriculum to prepare you to be successful. The management and training support is always there and you have a lot of people to reach out to. YOU CAN MAKE A LOT OF MONEY IF YOU ARE MOTIVATED!

    Cons

    Employees don't give themselves enough time to learn the industry and build up their craft of being successful. I see so much potential walk in the doors and they either aren't motivated or they don't believe in what we do. Other con, I didn't start here sooner!!!

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    I've been with It's Just Lunch over six years and nothing is better than knowing you're helping to change lives . Hearing success stories, meeting success stories, and knowing that you're a part of something so important it's the best feeling to have in any career! It's Just Lunch has also change my life giving me the opportunity to excel at something I believe in and focus on my own personal success . It doesn't feel like a "job" even when it's a lot of work its fun, rewarding, and interesting everyday.

    Cons

    Sales can be difficult ,this particular sale can be emotional and tough to conquer right away. It takes work and patience just like any other job when you're just getting started. So many times in the sales position you have to constantly motivate and remind yourself of why you're passionate and why you're here. I don't see this as a con.

    Advice to Management

    I am lucky to work with the best CEO who has more experience and passion to trickle down to the entire company. She and the managers in the sales department all have the strongest belief and passion for their team and clients I can't think of any advice to give other than to stay focused on that!

    I have loved working at It's Just Lunch for over 4 years now. There is a great work environment and it feels great to be part of the team.
    Management is also plus. They are very appreciative of our efforts.
    We make a real difference in people's lives and if you work towards staying long enough with the company you will see the positive effect your day to day work has on your clients.

    Cons

    As with most customer service jobs work can become overwhelming at times.
