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

    Pros

    Where do I begin? I thoroughly enjoy working at IJL! Not only is it an amazing work environment where I feel celebrated and appreciated. It's also a fulfilling position helping others find love and happiness! Organizationally you couldn't ask for better individuals; never have I worked at a place where not only my immediate management is proactive in my success, but also those at the VP and Executive levels. I truly feel as though I am a member of a team not only concerned with their own personal success but also that of the clients we serve. There is room for growth here; both professionally and personally and at the end of each day I feel emotionally gratified having helped my clients take a proactive step towards bettering their lives by finding meaningful companionship.

    Cons

    As with any position, the occasional client can become emotionally exhausting. Being in the dating/relationship industry, we get to know our members on a deep personal level and there are those who can take an emotional toll on you. It's all made better knowing that you ARE helping them live better, more satisfying lives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! It's amazing being a part of a team where management is so passionately involved in helping you succeed.

    Pros

    Working from home and controlling your own schedule

    Cons

    Oh my goodness. I also am alerted to new reviews and have thus seen the nauseating positive reviews of late. Please, if you are considering a position at this company, Google the consumer reviews first. This company does NOT deliver quality service and in order to do well, you must be OK with that. If one is OK with that, that necessarily means that they are willing to mislead because there is no way you can sell this membership unless you do mislead clients into believing that the staff who sets up their dates actually match them WELL, based upon their preferences, which you will see by the consumer reviews, they do not. Of course, once in a while a match will work out, but that is a very small percentage. If you have integrity, do your homework before taking this job or at least have a back up in place if you find you cannot stomach participating in over promising and under delivering to unsuspecting, lonely people.

    Matchmaking sounds glamorous, I liked some of my co-workers, commissions paid twice a month

    Lots of OLD leads, encouraged to strong arm potential clients into signing contracts, sign clients that may not meet demographics for adequate matches, cost to join service very expensive

    Working was great. I was able to spend time with my family and get paid!

    The pay was very low. You had to make over 100 calls per day. I did not believe the company was doing right by people.
