    I have been working at It's Just Lunch full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Every day is different which makes it exciting! The people that we work with are incredible (both clients and colleagues), and everyone truly cares about the clients' success. Not many people can say that they love their job, but I get to talk about dating and love all day... what could be more fun and rewarding than that?! -The office space is beautiful and comfortable (and filled with all the success stories which...

    Cons

    I haven't found many that are specific to this job. It's hard work. It's challenging. But it's work... so it should be. I'd be bored if it weren't challenging!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the high touch approach with the employees as we continue to grow. It sets IJL apart.

    Cons

    The most difficult part about this industry is not being able to make everyone happy. Some people are negative, or don’t have realistic expectations. It’s really challenging to know that you could make a positive impact but those changes need to be embraced.

    Advice to Management

    Less duplicate paperwork! Save a tree!

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time

    Pros

    Some of the employees are nice.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! This whole company is a scam. They want you to sell relationships to people by saying "We have 3 people in mind for you right now"....when we have no one in mind for you, and have to randomly grab files to try and pitch them to you. They say they have "So many people joining, and we are SO busy"...not busy. Most of the day you're cold calling old clients, and asking if they are still single...and if they are...

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

    Pros

    I actually get to help people find someone special. The pay is great. Management is very employee friendly as to time off for appointments. Feedback and training consistent. If your manager is unavailable, another is always on hand to assist immediately. Even if you have a great sales background, be ready to learn. This position is not like other "sales" roles. It requires empathy, understanding and a true interest...

    Pros

    Great environment, and team culture. Great tenure and longevity seen with Executive Staff at the Corporate Office and good career outlook for growth.

    Cons

    Location: the traffic is packed on the east side of Hallandale, but the Corporate Business Office is moving to a beautiful new location in West Miramar. Can't Wait!

    Advice to Management

    Let's keep the momentum of growth going!

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, nice office, working with people from different backgrounds. Interesting job, something you wouldn’t think of doing. Could have potential to help change someone’s life.

    Cons

    A scam. A literal scam. Over priced. Employees are told to lie to customers. Terrible customer service tactics, told to tell clients they aren’t invested in themselves when they want to cancel memberships. Matchmakers make intentionally bad matches just to get to a quota. Matchmakers call old leads and try and con them into joining just to meet a sales goal. Management refuses to talk to unhappy clients and address their...

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

    Pros

    No evenings, No weekends and No Travel. The commission structure is amazing a real opportunity to make six figures. The understanding of the type of career your entering and not a job is imporrtant to success. Understand when a type of sales is not for you which is why the training $$$ is so low. That is smart not to invest all your resources not knowing if they are going to work out! Its the best incentive to push yourself

    Cons

    As a person just starting with the company I have no cons. The only thing I couldnt decipher was if an office was corporate or franchise. The other part was seeing all the different job titles was a bit confusing.
