Poorly ran business.
consultant. (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBNovember 14, 2013
Pros: nothing.
Cons: no breaks, small office space, short hours
I worked here for 2 years, in my eyes it is a poorly ran business that will not succeed. The employees are not treated well, and the marketing for Jenny Craig is not doing well. Clientele is going down hill, which means less money for Jenny and less in your pocket. Many of the policies and procedures need to be updated. Many of the Clients commented – more... that they felt they were being harassed by the company. This is not a good look Jenny.
Ps. food is WAY too expensive, your better off learning how to portion size and eat healthy than buy their food. – less

Very nice and relaxing place to work. No rush and no push. We can work at our own phase. All the stuff are very friendly. The best part about this work is that we get to wear professional dress and the employee discount, plus free consultation. There is nothing hard about this job, except sometime we have angry husbands calling and yelling at us over – more... the phone.. – less

Customer Coordinator/ Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Surrey, BCApril 30, 2012
Pros: free food
Cons: low wage and no room to grow within the company
Ive learned a lot from being in this position from multitasking skills to phone sales to filing, answering phones, and paperwork. The only hardest part of the job was spending a hour or two lifting over 50 pounds in food boxes and stocking the freezer and doing this all by myself. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the clients and – more... seeing there gradual success in weight loss, and seeing the constant health benefits. – less

Fun place but terrible local managing
Weight-loss Consultant (Current Employee), Miami, FLSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: nice to help clients. flexible schedule. work with nice people.
Cons: terrible pay, weekly hours cut, instability, constant change of offers and restructuring.
Different markets have different circumstances. In south florida the Jenny Craigs are run by a trio that doesn't care much about their employees, instead they care about their numbers. Not about the "little " people working to get those numbers up. They do not care about the people in each of their centers, not one bit.

Great environment with seasonal & product decorations.
Sales Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: private rooms for sessions and bright colorful decor.
Cons: rarely take a break. clients scheduled every 20 minutes.
Working here is very rewarding. You are changing your clients' lives. with weekly weight loss counseling sessions, weigh-ins and providing their next weeks' meals and snacks.When the clients get on that scale each week and have their measurements taken, they see positive results every week. These are the most encouraging things that keep them coming – more... back. As their friends and family see the difference in their weight, appearance and attitude, it normally leads to referrals that become new clients, and the cycle continues. – less

Challenging yet Rewarding Job
Weight Loss Consultant (Former Employee), Manalapan, NJAugust 4, 2014
Pros: able to create close interpersonal relationships
Cons: often 15 minutes per client was not enough, and i had to cut them off to make sure i was on time for my next appointment
Since this job was primarily commission based, I had to wear two hat, my sales woman hat, and my weight loss consultant hat. I had to think of my sales performance as well as the goals of my clients and what was best for them. This was probably the hardest part, finding a balance with the client so that both our needs were met. I found this job made – more... me more competitive as I made it a mission to always be top in sales and weight loss percentage. One of my clients lost 100 pounds and I was very proud of that, that is what made my job most enjoyable. But it was also rewarding to see how my salesmanship was reflected in my pay check. I made the decision to leave when I found that due to financial hardships, clients were unable to spend as much money, and therefore, I was unable to keep a steady pay check. As well, I felt the company did not appreciate its employees and, as rewarding as it was to help people change their lives, it was also important for me to make a living, and so I decided to part ways with Jenny Craig. My day consisted of 15 minutes one on one consultations, as well as extensive phone work, either calling to confirm appointments, or touch base with clients that I had not seen in a while. There was also the responsibility of keep track of our cash drawer, as well as receipts, and closing paper work. – less
