    Pros

    I love the location of my office, it's very easy to get to. My co-workers are amazing and my boss is helpful to me too. I find this job to be challenging, yet very rewarding when my clients fall in love because of me!

    Cons

    Sometimes, clients can be unrealistic and too demanding. I never promise them that they are going to fall in love or meet their soulmate, but some people still expect this. Some people can also expect to date models when they are just average, so that can be a bit frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    I've been here over 2 years and I'm very happy.

    Pros

    Never boring! Busy and fast paced. Allows creativity. Be a part of someone's personal life and maybe be responsible for finding them love. The girls at IJL that stay a long time are passionate, fun and courageous. Teaches alot of poise and life skills

    Cons

    Not for the clock watcher that doesn't want to make a difference. Must have a positive attitude as emotions can run high in matchmaking. Must be a self starter as our onsight management is minimal. Everyone works hard.

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

    Pros

    I am able to utilize my Master's Degree in Counseling to help others change their lives. It's incredibly rewarding and uplifting to talk with people about dating and finding love. It's Just Lunch is a progressive company that allows me to be myself, earn an incredible income and help promote happiness. I am so grateful to work with such positive, upbeat, forward thinking individuals who want to truly make a difference in people'slives. Thank you IJL.

    Cons

    I cannot think of one negative thing about working with It's Just Lunch. They are a professional group of individuals who truly want to help others find love. It doesn't get any better than this!

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

    Pros

    Helping other find love and companionship is so rewarding. I love the flexible work schedule, independent work space / office, motivational management and coworkers. I especially love that everyone supports one another at IJL, regardless of their position. I believe in surrounding myself with positive people and with IJL I have found a work family that helps be the best I can be.

    Cons

    This is a very self-motivated job, there is support but no one will do the job for you - this is a Pro for me, but may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Management is wonderful, there is transparency and good communication, weekly training. Management provides support and constructive criticism in a refreshingly positive way!

    Pros

    commission structure is awesome, the lead generation system and amount of data is huge so it keeps you working, the power behind the company, and the motivation the management team gives to us as employees is so positive it helps keep things strong and moving forward

    Cons

    It's sales so you have to always be at the top of your game so the most can come of your week.

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

    Pros

    I have been with the company for over 5 years and done quite well. If I didn't make six figures this year, I was close enough to it. You will do well too if you are self motivated, really looking to make a change in someone's life, and you're eager to make your commission. I love the fact that I do make a change in people's lives and I've been here long enough to actually see the success stories! There are some tremendous results that come of our service. There's longevity here.....I'm a testament of that. You just have to come in with a positive can-do attitude, connect with people on a personal level, and get them to commit to what they really want to do anyway....which is get out there dating!

    Cons

    It is sales....you have to work. I don't necessarily look at that as a con, however....it's just merely an expectation. It's realistic. You have to work in order to get where you want to be each month in terms of your numbers.

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

    Pros

    Uplifting, positive, motivated staff makes the days go by quickly and make work seem like fun! We get to change lives for many people, so it's great to have those karma points and get to call it a job. The new management of of this office is very supportive and I know that I can always rely on them for assistance.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's tough to make the clients realize what's best for them, but it comes with the territory....dating can be tough and is a sensitive aspect of people's lives.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to a long future with the team!
