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

    Pros

    I have the greatest teacher on earth! My boss has been an inspiration and I couldn't have come this far without her. I love the concept of what we do here. I enjoy coming into the office. I love talking with clients and closing deals.

    Cons

    The database could use some work. There are a lot of bad numbers or no contact information at all. It would be helpful if they were removed because it is time consuming having to go through them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the confidence building that is utilized throughout the company. It is very encouraging and motivational. The inspiration that I receive on a daily basis to drive and succeed is a great tool that I haven't received from any other company.

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

    Pros

    Very positive atmosphere; corporate culture without the secrets and red tape; HR is always organized and transparent; no limits on earnings/bonuses; managers believe in you and openly share their lessons to make you a better leader, sales rep, and overall person. This company has changed 1,000's of lives!! If you are NOT a go-getter and don't believe in yourself and the company's mission, you won't succeed. This company does not mislead their clients, unlike a lot of other dating services! Base pay + commission bonuses + PTO = dream come true.

    Cons

    If you have compassion, the toughest part of the job is giving up on clients who cannot afford the membership. Their stories are so personal, sometimes so heartbreaking, that its clear IJL is financially not feasible. That's the only major con to this company and job.

    Advice to Management

    More PTO or overtime earned towards PTO.

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

    Pros

    The pro is that, this was employment. I was hired under good impressions and the desire to use my sales tactics and advance in a company.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?

    Commission structure changing .
    Shady recruitment tactic (ie promoting the job as $60k when they know that is NOT accurate-even with commission).

    They hire ppl to dial old old old leads. They make you believe that after you sell ONE, that you will be assigned to new leads. Lies! You will dial OLD leads called RDA.Tthey will try to show you the stats of other sales reps, but those ppl are NOT dialing old leads, they are in different campaigns and its always the same four or five people making those commissions. I was fired because I spoke up. I told other ppl about all the lawsuits, and management tried to play the lawsuits down. I spoke up about how it's unfair to change the commission structure so soon.

    Don't work here. Just save yourself the time , really.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lieing.
    You scam single people
    Lie to singles
    Lie to honest job seekers.

    What else will it take for you guys to be honest? How many more lawsuits.

    I reported them to BBB

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    work from home, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Constantly changing commission structure to unobtainable goals. Management controls lead flow so if you have a good week, leads will be cut off for the following week. Favoritism from management on lead distribution and markets assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front and honest with how many new leads will be provided, stop dumping all your leads into the office locations like Dallas. Give all of your reps an opportunity to succeed.

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

    Pros

    Very interactive training, great coaching from some of the managers , got to work from home

    Cons

    Poor leads, once you're out of training i felt like some what abondoned by certain managers. No team or culture environment. Leads were outdated and their closing methods were very pushy and aggressive

    Advice to Management

    Treat each of sales rep as a friend, one you can be open and upfront with, too much fluff going o

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

    Pros

    I personally love the flexibility in hours and the support management and trainers give. I suppose you can say, the culture of this company is vibrant and positive. Even though there's ample training, you still must be self-motivated to do well. If you like being micromanage then this company is not for you, if you like being rewarded for your efforts then this may be a good fit.

    Cons

    There's base and commission for this job, sometimes it would be nice to have a higher base but when months are good, commission makes up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    If you are looking in to doing an intense sales position, this is a good job because you get to see first hand some good tactics about sales. The pay is also for someone who doesn't have any major responsibilities.

    Cons

    At times, other employees had an unprofessional work ethic. While working 9-6 is ideal, it can be a strain when you are given lengthy tasks on top of your responsibilities with such high pressure. There were also times that management was very inappropriate with the way they communicated issues through out the office.

    Advice to Management

    It would be best if there other strategies on how to approach situations of conflict in the office - yelling and degrading is not one of those.

    Pros

    I love this job! It's the first place I've actually liked working at in quite some time. It's a great place for those that have lots of customer service experience to get into more of an office environment rather than call center. We're all one big family here at IJL and I couldn't ask for a better place to work!

    Cons

    Organization is key to being successful in your roles at IJL. If you can manage that, you'll do great!
