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

    Pros

    Optimistic positive vibe company wide which daily motivates me to be the best that I can be & make every minute count. True sense of helping singles especially recently widowed. Weekly training led by VP Sale & often CEO. Support by all management throughout the day which high motivates me to succeed. I actually get excited in the morning on the subway when the conductor announces my stop!

    Cons

    The maximum hours are 40 hours so initially it was a challenge for me to be meticulous with my time management as previous jobs I worked until the day was done however I am now more focused on my time management skills. I plan my day the night before & review EOD to see areas that will allow me more time.

    Advice to Management

    I love the weekly company wide webinars however I'd love an opportunity to hopefully meet in person.

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

    Pros

    When I decided to brave the job market and search for a new career, I had a very specific list of things that I sought in my new career.
    1.) I wanted weekends free.
    2.) I wanted to feel challenged in my new field.
    3.) I wanted to know that I could grow within the company and be better compensated for my efforts.
    4.) I wanted to enjoy working with the people around me.
    5.) I wanted to enjoy working with my clients.
    6.) I wanted to be able to go home at the end of my day and say “I like what I do for a living.”
    Simply stated…. Done.

    Cons

    My commute is about 45 minutes.
