We support people to achieve their weight loss goal. Motivational consultations that make a difference in development of a healthy lifestyle. I feel valued by the Company and rewarded with competitive salary and benefits."

"This company has a very tumultuous environment especially where Management is concerned. I have had 5 managers in the 2.5 years that I have worked here. Each time I think, This has to get better, just wait and see. Unfortunately we still have one of the highest engineer turnover rates in the state."

Program Director
in Menlo Park, CA

"I worked with Jenny Craig for 3 years. I started as a Weight Loss Consultant, and quickly moved up to a Program Director, and then an Assistant Centre Director (within 6 months) in training to take over the CD position for when the time came. I was promised the Centre Director position noting my outstanding customer service, sales, growth of the business and overall work ethic. When the time came, the MD and AMD not only didn't interview me, they gave the job to someone FAR less qualified."

Network Engineer

"Watch out!!! Starting at JC was great. The company had so much potential especially since they were newly acquired by Nestle, which meant that there was budget to be spent for improving technology. But as time went on, I quickly realized that the company was not going anywhere since its leadership team had no clue to run a company with a big budget. Eventually the company started putting new leaders and not thinking whether they would be good."

"I spent 8 years at Jenny and worked at multiple centers. I loved it for about 5-6 years, then as the business became weaker the environment became unstable and inconsistent. Within the past year they closed over 100 stores and are being sold by Nestle. Everyone of my mentors or good managers are gone!"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The only thing that is important is that you meet your performance expectations."

What don't you like about working at Jenny Craig?

"The clients have an option of buying our foods even though it is highly recommended while they tried to lose their weight. It did not take long before clients wanting to try or include other methods such as buying other foods. Our performance was based how much our clients spent on our products. It did not really reflect on a client's weight loss success."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"They should be more flexible and have more realistic measures for the employees. The company has more of a sales atmosphere than it is to help with weight loss."
