    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...

    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...

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

    Pros

    There are no benefits to working at Its Just Lunch it was one of the most unprofessional work environments I've ever experienced.

    Cons

    This company encourages you to manipulate people's emotional triggers in order to get them to spend thousands of dollars on a minimal membership even if there's just a bare minimum of people in their area to date. Do Not Call guidelines are encouraged to be ignored by management who insist that because they contacted them for information they do not have to adhere to the Do Not Call policy. They advise new agents in training...

    Advice to Management

    Ensure your management are not telling agents in a training environment to ignore the call notes as this can lead to legal issues for the company as management sometimes is knowingly in direct violation of the Do not call policies and laws. Coach your managers on how to be more supportive of new agents and teach them how to be leaders and it's possible your turnover rate won't be so high.

    Pros

    That you work in a climate controlled environment. There are benefits after 90 days. Training is fun and very easy if you put the effort into it.

    Cons

    This company is full of misleading promises and unrealistic expectations. You are not able to work at your own pace and get into your own grove. the office environment is very micro managing and the only ones making sales are the ones that have been there for a long time. There is a few others that work form home and another one in the office that has been doing dating sales for a long time. They are the top salers in...

    Advice to Management

    The manager has been Doing this all her life and is as fake as they come. All she cares about is pushing her sales style on you so you can make her money. She also steals all the new lead dallas from everyone in the office. She is selfish and micro manager that makes you feel like something is wrong with what your doing because you can't sale overpriced memberships to people over the phone. Gives you no flexibility with...

    I worked at It's Just Lunch full-time for 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...

    I have been working at It's Just Lunch

    Pros

    Work from home. Decent training. Adjustable schedule. Most managers are very helpful.

    Cons

    Phony approach. Decade old leads. Repetitive DNC requests that are not honored. Dated CRM system. Favoritism... Same explanation for advice, as It is not catered to the individual. Not everyone is the same, so approaching someone to get the best out of someone is best when you really look at them and see where the opportunity for improvements lay. Scripted sales presentation...

    Advice to Management

    Everyone is different and requires a different approach. It isn't nice to "trick" people into calling you back as it angers people and makes the company as a whole look bad.

    Pros

    You work from home.

    Cons

    You work 9 hours a day calling old leads that have been called 100+ times in the last 15 years and had originally said "no" when given the sales pitch. They train you to call them 3 times in a row for weeks and weeks on end "until you get the join". Some of these people called in, found out how over-priced the service is, and said no.....then we call them for 10 years until...

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a mix of new and old leads instead of letting a small select group get rich while everyone else gets belittled and screamed at and treated like garbage from the leads we've harassed since 2000. You bring on a new crop of trainees and get them swamped with bad leads and bad calls and ridiculous expectations and wonder why everyone quits. Shocker!
