    Cons

    The industry is emotionally driven, so you have to know how to handle emotions, stress and not take things personally.

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    compensation is fair, some of the management is truly amazing

    Cons

    the technology that this company insists on using is the bane of my existence. their proprietary CRM is a complete mess, laggy, reloads your screen and loses your information you inputted, logs you out randomly. there's so so so so so many times a day when I spend time doing something that I know could be automated with the proper technology. things fall through the cracks so often here too, your customer service...

    Advice to Management

    MODERNIZE. ENTER THIS CENTURY. this place is a revolving door of employees. we say we're growing and expanding, but why? the employees you already have are not working to their full potential because you give them windows 2003. literally. invest in your employees and they will be able to produce SO much more for you! bring in some outside tech consultants, see where we can streamline our processes and stop wasting...

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to meet some interesting and successful people via IJL's clients.

    Cons

    Poor pay, the sales pitch isn't at all what is going on behind the scenes. It can feel so hopeful at first to help people find a match for themselves, and these people shell out a lot of money to do so, but ultimately, you're at the mercy of the franchise owner, or whomever is handling the matches who may or may not actually listen to what the client wants.

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Positive , mostly happy work environment ! I’m a very positive and upbeat person and I always make the best of everything and all situations . I love helping people find solutions and love .. so this was a great fit for me ! I was excited to excel at this job .

    Cons

    It’s hard to go negative , rather I simply inform and tell it as I experienced it to try and help others with realistic expectations. I was disappointed with the “old leads” that were provided , as I felt the salary that the company offered , although very adequate , was “dangled as a carrot “ and not quite attainable . I called at least 100 leads a day and no one ever answered . When they did , they were not interested...

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

    Pros

    Potential to help people Excellent base salary Supportive management Extensive initial training Weekly continued training

    Cons

    Currently very poor commission structure. I would rather the commission payouts be smaller but actually get paid out per sale, not starting once you’ve hit goal. There’s already been two reviews written which are both extremely accurate, titled “first and foremost” and “read the yelp reviews & believe them.” Melissa, or someone at least claiming to be Melissa, the CEO, responded to the latter review claiming “many...

    Advice to Management

    Join the 21st century and invest in salesforce.com with some drip campaign automation add ons. It would increase your workforce productivity by ten fold. It’s actually absurd how old and unhelpful your technology is. Instead of opening office after office and hiring a revolving door of sales reps, invest in the ones you already have and give us the tools to succeed.

    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.

    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 for 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...

    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.
