    Pros

    You really DO change people's lives. Helping people help themselves.

    Cons

    COMMISSION BASED PAY. No financial recognition. They give "move points" which mean nothing. It is not "all about helping the client" it's about "selling and upgrading the client". The commission based pay brings out the worst in coworkers. Company gives in to brown-nosers and kiss aes. You have to be really fake a lot of the time. Since the economy is so bad right now, 8 out of 10 sales people in our market are making less than $10 per hour!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY YOUR EMPLOYEES!!!! GET RID OF THE COMMISSION STRUCTURE.

    I have been working at Jenny Craig full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Helping people is great and it was always challenging. The skills learned in the weight loss industry are transferable almost anywhere.

    Cons

    The pay was truly insulting. Way below the industry standard and I was a top performer who constantly met quota and fiscal goals. The more the company struggled the more we had to cut employee hours and increase our own for coverage purposes. In my last 6 months I was working 6 days a week and open to close for most of them. I like hard work but if you divided my salary by hours worked I'm pretty sure it came out to minimum wage. We even had to work on the 4th of July and other holidays. It was exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice employee engagement and don't just preach it.
