    You are also a salesperson so you have to constantly keep that in mind...upselling required had to meet a goal

    I worked at Medifast full-time

    Pros

    you have to love helping people and be a cheerleader to your members. that is the only pro to working for Medifast, the members.

    Cons

    never provide raises, micro management, sales are a HUGE part, and no respect for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    let your managers be managers, not babysitters to a store. hire capable employees to run your business to earn experience vs. hiring warm
    bodies and micromanaging every move. also, respect employees- know them personally because that will help you realize where in the company they belong.

    Pros

    Experience working with individuals on weigh loss and behavioral changes. If you are up for challenging yourself you can also gain sales experience. Great for gaining experience in the health and wellness field if you are unsure of your next move after college.

    Cons

    pay is very low! No matter what level you are. Commissions are not competitive either.

    Advice to Management

    Offering more competitive pay would work wonders.

    I worked at Medifast full-time

    Pros

    Paid holiday, friendly co-workers in some locations.

    Cons

    Two faced managers that lie to get ahead. High staff turnover and understaffed. Some employees have had to work shifts alone. Constant miscommunication from ownership and managers, unattainable goals, stress to reach unrealistic goals. This company does not market and expects you to find the business for them but they do not tell you that in the interview

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and then you might not have as much turn around. You should not make people feel like they are lucky to have a job, that is not motivating or inspiring. If you had some Morals you might be more successful
